I love Dayforce and Ceridian... they are a truly innovative company that values their employees as much as their customers... makes me wish I could work for them!

Pros

Ease of use, single database system, cloud based, continuously upgrading software to stay ahead of market trends, innovative

Cons

Currently switching to HTML instead of Silverlight and it is a little cumbersone but they are constantly improving speed and listen to customer feedback to make changes

Pros

Nothing. There is nothing this program does that another program cant do better. Manager functions on the app are nonexistent. All managerial work must be done on a computer. Even on a computer, they're impossible!

Cons

It is counterintuitive. Generally, a pain in the butt. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU OWN A RESTAURANT! It wont help you with anything. Any money you save in labor, will inevitably be spent on figuring out how to use it. Even then, then, you will be disappointed.

I'm happy to move from ADP to Dayforce.

Pros

Easy to implement from other products, especially ADP Vantage. All features are straight forward and ease to use.

Cons

there are many good features, I do not know it is a cons, but since it has too many good features, it is little hard to remember all good features.

Pros

Not Much good to say as a user. The interface looks nice, but is not user friendly. Not sure it is worth the integration.

Cons

Confusing wording. Constant alerts that you have to delete (who needs another inbox)? When you open the software, a pop up blocks the item you are trying to use (crazy). During pay period lockdowns, you can't do anything but still get reminders and alerts. Worse EVERY TIME YOU LEAVE IT SAYS YOU MIGHT LOSE YOUR WORK even though there is no save button.... what are you supposed to do? Leave it open and worry all the time?

getting support can take several days or weeks unless it is super urgent (related to payroll). You are able to rank the priority (1-5), however, Dayforce can lower the priority (from a 5 to a 4) if not a production impact (e.g. payroll related).

I find that Dayforce allows for unlimited customization in your company setup and the newest upgrades are improving the look and feel of the software.

I LOVE the system! We just went through the Thomas fire in Southern California and without this system we would not have been able to communicate with our staff. While we were being evacuated, I was trying to send payroll and if we were still with ADP we never would have been able to. I would have had 750 employees that were evacuated, some had lost everything and they would not have gotten paid. Dayforce literally saved the day for everyone. We were closed for 5 weeks and without the messaging capability through Dayforce, we wouldn't have been able to communicate with our staff. I was able to check on employees and answer questions while I too was evacuated. The system gave us some relief in a time that was scary, emotionally draining and stressful. The gratitude I have for making this switch from ADP to Ceridian before the fire happened, can't be put into words. Other payroll professionals will know the stress of not being able to send a payroll, but in the worst time for me I did not have that stress. The system offers so much and no other Payroll & HR software provider even comes close.

Pros

Robust system, everything is in 1, constantly enhancing the system, Insights conference is AMAZING, XOXO website lets you communicate with other customers and is hands down a game changer

Cons

Because the system is so robust, the implementation is hard, reporting is outdated and formatting is not the best.

Ceridian Dayforce has helped our 4500+ employee company go from being bogged down by 90% paper to less than 5% paper which has been a huge cost and time savings. This is just one of the benefits of this amazing software.

Pros

That it is an all-in-one system that processes data in real-time... we are able to process a more accurate payroll and daily onsite checks.

Cons

They are moving off of Silverlight and onto HTML which seems to run a little bit slower than Silverlight. I am hoping that this will be solved when all module are running in HTML.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

This software has a ton of potential, especially if you're willing to do the hard culture-change work that will be required to maximize it. However, if you aren't going to capitalize on the features, you'd very likely be better off with something a little less feature-heavy and more user-friendly. I would have loved to capitalize on the report creation features to benefit my company, however they are reserved for the highest admin level and therefore are privileges not easily granted.

Pros

-Tons of useful features
-Possibility of creating completely customized reports using the vast array of information collected and held by DayForce
-All in one-solution for HR, Payroll, and Time-tracking software.

Cons

-Difficult to implement the many features
-High barriers for customization and report creation
-Easy to become overwhelmed or confused
-Weird access to features based on strange controls in the system for who can see what information

Pros

Dayforce is much easier to navigate from an end user perspective, so training the field on authorizing schedules, time sheets, time away from work, and any kind of employment form (promotions, terminations, ect.) was successful at my organization. I think having a system that is simple to use has really helped us to increase our payroll accuracy across the organization since the field is more willing to be engaged.

Cons

The fact that some of their modules still use MS Silverlight, which means my browser choices are limited when working in the system.

Love the software, but implementation was tough becuase the people that were assigned to our account didnt know the software any better than we did. I wish someone had taken the time to learn what our organization needed, and the complexity of our process before assigning resources that were too green to help us, effectively.

Pros

The ability to customize and control the environment without recoding of software

Cons

Location of features are not always intuitive. The support/help search features should be smarter. If you dont kniw the exact name of what youre looking for, you dont get results.

I have had some really great support people helping me through my first open enrolment and it has really been great!

Pros

I love the ease of logging into one system to get access to all my needs from processing a new employee to processing payroll and beyond. Having access to everything I need in one location for employees make my work life happier and more efficient!

Cons

The vast amount of information to sort through with any upgrade can be overwhelming. Would be nice to have a script to test through so I can be sure I am covering all of my bases before it is live on production.
