DailyPay added capabilities that will allow HCM technology, time management and payroll service providers to offer its on-demand pay services through their product suites. The launch of the product, called ExtendPX, moves DailyPay beyond its traditional offering by opening its services to a range of vendors.

The demand for on-demand pay (an employer-based benefit and payroll process also called earned wage access) has grown exponentially due to its proven ability to reduce turnover, promote worker productivity and boost hiring. Given the triple-digit growth in client demand for on-demand pay, HCM, payroll and TMS companies are quickly realizing the need to embrace this new market.

“Over the past five years, DailyPay has partnered with key HCM and TMS companies in powerful ways,” said Jason Lee, CEO and co-founder of DailyPay. “We have proven that by integrating our gold-standard offering into their platforms, more Americans can enjoy control and flexibility over their pay. After all, it’s their money, and they’ve earned it. This product expansion is just one of the critical steps we are making to move the entire PayExperience industry forward.”
