Pros

One database for HR and PR processes/functions allows flexibility and ease of access. Made it possible to streamline many of our day to day processes.

Cons

The system was very general. We had some "work arounds" on forms, hr policies, and guided processes that we needed establish for the results we wanted.

Dayforce HCM great for Payroll and HRIS

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Value for Money

Dayforce works great under the right circumstances, but they still have some work to do to gain a bigger market share.

Pros

Dayforce HCM (DF) is a great product for payroll, which is the company's core offering. They have incorporated other HRIS modules into DF, some of which work extremely well. Dayforce does a great job of using only one employee record for everything, so there are no internal interfaces, and all changes are made real time. The company keeps up to date on all regulatory changes, and is quick to roll out updates and fixes to the software, which are seamless because they happen in the cloud. Works great for both our US and Canadian populations.

Cons

Dayforce does not process payroll in Mexico, so we cannot use it for the sole solution in North America. The reporting on data is sometimes difficult; the tool is pretty robust, but some common-sense reports are almost impossible to build, due to the cumbersome process of linking data fields together. This is getting better, but still lacking. Support response times are usually timely, but support personnel are not always knowledgeable enough to fix the issue right away. Any extra work on the product is always billable, and never cheap. Due to the design of the product, any changes to the company's organizational structure will almost certainly result in a long, expensive project to update the product.

Horrible Software for reporting

Functionality

Customer Support
N/A

Oh, there's so much to say. Horrible software!

Cons

From the financial reporting side: Reports that are generated, are not in the correct Excel format. I have to manipulate EVERYTHING just to be able to use it. They don't have a work comp report, unless you want to pay them to create it, which we had to do.

I just needed them to run SUTA expense with payroll, but not pay the tax to the state, since we have a trust. They can't handle that. So now, I'm stuck with no SUTA expense to record and Ceridian staff saying, the software doesn't support what we need. Basically, if it's something you need that doesn't fit them, forget about it. You are required to conform to them, not the other way around. They are not customer oriented at all. Customer support is severely lacking.

Our implementation has not gone well, and we are not finished. It has been 5 months.

The entire process has been extremely frustrating.

We implemented this system almost a year ago throughout our whole organization and we LOVE it! Our team members appreciate having some of the power in their hands to be able to see their schedules on the mobile app, request time off on the mobile app, managers can approve request on the mobile app, and the system is very easy to navigate. If we had to make the choice again, we would not change a thing!

Pros

Dayforce is very intuitive, which is one of the reasons we decided on Dayforce. We looked at the system from the perspective of the team member, who would use it, but most likely not daily. How would they be able to navigate the system? What would be their challenges? We found that Dayforce was able to rise to the challenge and provide many tools that would help our team members out along the way. One of them we like is the great mobile app that appeals to the millennials. Being able to check schedules, time worked, request time off, etc. on the mobile app has been a huge success for the team members as well as the managers who would get the calls to find out what the schedule is, or how much time off is available.

Cons

The reporting for someone not as advanced is great, but for those that are more advanced it can be challenging. To be fair, they do have a lot of standard reports that you can tweak, but for those that like to get in and pull various reports, I don't think they have a good way of letting you know what the tables are and where to pull the data from.

Pros

The functionality! We have some complex policies / procedures that other vendors simply told us could not be automated. However, we have been able to automate not just successfully but accurately these complex policies to improve our internal customer satisfaction and remove a lot of the administrative burden. Ceridian is also clearly dedicated to excelling and staying ahead of the industry's needs, as clearly reflected in their willingness and execution to implement clients' ideas based on their individual needs.

Cons

Silverlight plug-in is a problem especially for my Mac users; however, they are working on getting rid of this, thankfully. In addition, they had to address some implementation inefficiencies.

Generally speaking, the Dayforce product features a pleasant professional looking user interface the is quite intuitive. The single user interface and single client record allows for less time in the system, and more importantly, the ability to run nearly endless metrics for strategic planning. The system is quite robust and offers a full set of features where most competitors lack a full feature set. When you sign up as a new customer, the customer support, training, and networking with other Dayforce customers is fantastic. Overall, the products sets the bar for industry standard.

Pros

Dayforce provides a single user interface and a single client record. Many products have multiple records that impact the flow of data point. The Dayforce single record supports advanced metrics for strategic planning.

Cons

There learning of the product is extensive. This is initially a con, however, the learning and networking opportunities are vast.

Dayforce Is a great tool and is definitely evolving. I cannot wait to see what the future holds with the product.

Pros

What I like the most about Dayforce is , the system is very user friendly. I love that we have a test environment to test all the products and determine what works best for us and what doesn't. I am able to perform any tasks in Dayforce quick and efficiently.

Cons

The only thing I would like to change about Dayforce is functionality to add more items to items such as pay approve checklist. This is to work like my day but the manager is not on the page as it is displayed in my day. So eventhough Pay approve checklist is a lot user friendly than may day I have to complete an extra step and run a report to find out who the manager is for the employee I am approving time for.

None over previous software. I do believe that it is better for the people who process our payroll, but for us users like me (time clock punchers), it is more difficult than our previous software.

Pros

The software itself is pretty comprehensive. There are many options and it keeps track of daily time, time off requests, sick days remaining, vacation remaining, etc.

Cons

Some employees, like me, who punch a clock find it difficult to use as far as approving "time", requesting time off. Often takes too long too load before punching in. A common complaint is punching in late when the employee was actually early to work. This seems to be computer dependent. Newer computers having little to no problems punching in while folks using older computers have the software loading too slowly issue.

You can update everything just once, instead of updating in multiple systems then needing to audit for compliance. Also it's handy to be able to build up the modules as they are needed.

Pros

It being an all-in-one system, it makes updating and maintaining data so much easier. The reporting capability is also user friendly and you can get what you need when you need it.

Cons

It being an all-in-one system! It can be very finicky and you need to ensure you know what you are doing when updating the security or set up.

We are now using the most up-to-date software available for completing payroll on time and on budget. We are legislatively compliant. Dayforce is cloud based so we have no worries about servers failing or computers crashing. Our information is safe. Our employees are confident they are being paid correctly.

We can now customize our own system, we can run reports, and we have total control over our employee database.

Pros

We like the freedom to do our own configuration. The interface is very user friendly. It is nice to have all of the information that we need, right at our fingertips.

Cons

Initial set up and implementation is a little challenging because when converting, you don't know what you don't know. Some of the hidden features and functionality don't become apparent until you make a mistake and have to seek assistance.

Pros

The report is great, we really enjoy this feature! Payroll processing time is cut in half of our previous vendor.

Cons

The lack of immediate attention to issues that arise during our daily processes. We don't really have too many dislikes.

A one stop shop for mostly all human resources and payroll functions.

Pros

The integration of payroll, scheduling, document management, performance management, recruiting, and onboarding on one platform.

Cons

It can be more intutitive. The system is easy enough to operate, but I think it would be more beneficial if some of the features were more intuitive so new users can become more efficient in a quicker manner. It takes some getting used to. I would recommend changing the format for drop down selections. It isn't always obvious to new users.

Streamlined some of our manual processes, better reporting options, Automatic carrier feeds, etc

Pros

It's evolving at a steady pace with features and functionality. We have been through one new release and it included a brand new benefits and payroll modules that thankfully did not replace the previous modules for now so it wasn't disruptive. We have ample time to learn the new modules before they completely replace the old. The support model has been mostly very good.

Cons

There are still some bugs with the new functionality. I wish there was more control over the data to have an efficient method of fixing records that have bad data. I also think the learning curve is long to learn the advanced reporting methods of creating new topics.

My company switched from Paychex to Ceridian Dayforce HCM in January 2017. Our implementation team was by far the best implementation team I have ever worked with. They are a very organized, cohesive group. This product is very user-friendly and intuitive. The user interface is very easy for even the most novice of users. Dayforce HCM has your HRIS, your Time & Attendance, and your payroll all in one application. A great product!

Pros

Very intuitive and easy to use. Very customizable (do so during implementation).

Cons

It takes a bit to get used to, but once you do, you will never want to turn back!

Advice to Others

Make sure that your data is accurate in your legacy system prior to implementation so that you have as clean a migration as possible.
