DailyPay partners with leading enterprises and payroll companies to offer an instant payment solution to their workforces, which results in a meaningful reduction in turnover and related cost savings. The product currently serves 500K employees across all service sectors, including the top 5 industries in America (healthcare, retail, restaurants, manufacturing, education).

"I'm thrilled to be recognized for this prestigious award," said Jason Lee, CEO of DailyPay. "We know that pay is personal. Pay is emotional. The outdated pay system requires Americans to wait two weeks (or more) to get their money, often putting them in dire financial situations. I knew there was a better way. Our company has evolved beyond just an on-demand platform — we have become an ecosystem."11 September 2020
