 In News Releases

Property management firm to achieve increased efficiencies, productivity, and best-in-class compliance following implementation of Dayforce.

Vancouver, Canada OnActuate announced today that leading British Columbia property management firm, Devon Properties (Devon), has successfully implemented Dayforce enterprise HCM software – including HR, Payroll, and Workforce Management solutions – from Ceridian, a leader in global HCM technology. Devon has transformed its HR operations by leveraging the Dayforce platform’s single solution, single database, and single continuous calculation engine to deliver a modern, accurate, and dependable people experience for employees. OnActuate managed the successful implementation on schedule.  

As a full-service property management firm, Devon has 20 different legal entities that property managers move between. This complicated its financial reporting process, which led to payroll delays. To mitigate the challenges from its complex labour costing, Devon chose to implement Dayforce, Ceridian’s flagship cloud HCM solution.  

Devon’s small payroll team had limited resources to dedicate to the project. Global technology and consulting firm, OnActuate, became an extension of their team as the trusted implementation partner. OnActuate is a system integrator partner for Ceridian 

“We are extremely grateful to OnActuate for joining the project and helping our internal team manage the project,” said Claudio Addis, Vice President Finance, Devon Properties. “With OnActuate’s help, the project was successfully completed on time, and we are now able to concentrate on fine-tuning our processes and realizing the benefits of a fully integrated HCM solution.”

A people-first approach is the hallmark of OnActuate’s specialized services. OnActuate’s experienced HR & Payroll implementor worked closely with Devon’s team to reduce their project workload by providing a holistic view of the system, helping with data verification, testing assistance, and translating technical requirements. The project was completed on schedule in January 2023. 

Devon’s successful implementation of Dayforce means a reduction in workload and cumbersome manual processes. The company will benefit from better labour costing and reporting under one payroll system, without having to run multiple payrolls and create multiple pay records. Dayforce also offers employee self-service options, such as accessing timesheets via an app and managing their own payroll exceptions. Now Devon’s lean payroll department can maximize its time and resources. 

“We’re excited Devon has transformed its operations to automate complex requirements and deliver a modern HR and payroll experience for employees with Dayforce,” said Tim Quan, Global Vice President, System Integrator Alliances, Ceridian. “With its deep knowledge and commitment to customer satisfaction, OnActuate was the perfect Ceridian partner to ensure a successful launch to Devon’s HR journey.”
