"Global database for human resources"

What do you like best?

It has a great integrity of the data. It is a good management system for human resources and equipment within the company. Manages the different files within a database, which increases the ease of managing documents, reports and internal teams from different areas of the company.

The configuration is quite flexible, it can be customized and it also has a well-cut design, which is useful so that any change you make within the system is presented with an attractive visual design for users.

Regarding the presentation of the scoring systems and the members of the teams are well defined and this seems to me key, since it is necessary that there is a distinction between each member and the contribution made.

What do you dislike?

When you make internal changes in the implementation of the equipment this may delay your work a little. You have to develop and configure the system well so that any internal changes within the teams can be made without losing resources and time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are teams in any sector of the company and perfecting them with scoring systems and structuring their tasks is something that always helps to improve teamwork.

With this software you can improve that and streamline the procedures in human resources.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have increased the productivity of different teams in our areas of the company, which has increased at the same time the profitability obtained in these sectors.

Communication in the area of human resources has been greatly facilitated. With Ceridian Dayforce it is easier to make queries about payroll, review any invoice, customize reports and get the details about them. Speed has increased in this sense.

"All the functions of human resources united"

What do you like best?

It has an excellent integrity of the data, since it has updates in payroll, benefits and other aspects of human resources. All this data integrity is fantastic, since you have the entire human resources area in a single database.

It also has the ability to create customized and detailed reports. They are somewhat complex to perform, but if you dedicate enough time to visualize all the options, you get a lot of information and it will be beneficial for the company.

Highlight the interface, the appearance and the configuration, since I consider that it is visually very attractive and it is also quite well optimized. The blue color, the photos, the program images, the scoring systems, everything is well integrated and looks nice.

What do you dislike?

One must be very careful when implementing Ceridian Dayforce, since it requires time, knowledge and to know this kind of programs well.

It is necessary to dedicate time and to think well who is going to devote to realize the configuration of this program, since although soon it is very useful and beneficial for the productivity in the beginning it is lost a lot of time configuring everything well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think that a tool that integrates and simplifies the area of human resources helps teams and employees have less doubts and that business performance is better, so as Ceridian Dayforce provides these positive aspects, I think it is good software for human Resources.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have left aside the mail system, meetings to inform the payment system, holidays, having to conduct individual interviews with employees. All information regarding salaries, vacations, doubts or aspects of the human resources area is completely integrated in Ceridian Dayforce and has allowed us to waste less time and improve efficiency.

It also allows employees to consult doubts, that teams are informed about any change, also analyze the efficiency and productivity of the equipment. That is, we can assess and check the results obtained by the different teams within the company and the odd problems they have to act and solve them.

"Implementation in Process"

What do you like best?

We will go live on Ceridian Dayforce in July 2019, and our staff is on the edge of their seats weekly to hear what aspects of their job are soon going to be automated. We are replacing 3 systems with Ceridian, and taking 4 ancillary systems to 2, and as a result will have more consistent data throughout our footprint. Today, if you wanted to pull data, you would have to login to the system of record for that data piece, and it could be any one of those 7 systems. Having centralized data, with correct security and self serve access is a game changer for our business.

What do you dislike?

We have 2 issues we have run into thus far. The first is IVR timekeeping. We need to house caller IDs for our 3rd party IVR solution, and Ceridian does not have a field that can accomodate and export the caller ids for our job with the max number of whitelisted phone numbers, which is 18. We can manage this in the 3rd party's portal, but would have prefered to manage in Ceridian.

The 2nd is accruals. Ceridian cannot accrue by date, it calculates accruals by the percent of the pay period that falls in each month. The majority of our business is paid bi-weekly on a fluctuating schedule, so that will be a challenge for our company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One stop shop, self serve with security flowing through to dashboards and reports, no delay in data being updated across modules!

"Outstanding all-in-one HRIS!"

What do you like best?

I am the Corporate Recruiter, so I utilize the Recruiting module probably more than anything else. We rolled it out late last year and it has worked great to help us start to build a database of candidates that we did not have previously. It was well received at our facilities as well, and everyone seemed to catch on quick and are utilizing it daily.

What do you dislike?

It appears when going in to search for candidates in the Recruiting module, there is no way to search for candidate within a radius of a location. If I am looking for candidates we have in there for our Houston buildings, I am unable to search by a radius, so I then have to search by every nearby town which is very time consuming.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want an all-in one HRIS, this is the program to go with. We are continuing to add new pieces, as we will be rolling out onboarding next.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the issue we had previously of using multiple systems for HR, payroll, and we have solved the problem of needing an applicant tracking system by taking advantage of recruiting module.

"User friendly but ONLY if permissions are set accordingly."

What do you like best?

I like that you login and you have the option to choose your layout, so I chose the actual time clock as my default. I also like how you can customize the settings as to what you see you your home page. The time off request system is very manageable and navigating the site takes no learning at all.

What do you dislike?

The first thing I dislike is the start up time. I must get to work at least 5 min early bc after starting up my computer, I opens dayforce and it can take up to 2 min to load. There making me late. I also don’t like that once you missed a punch or clock in a minute early exit only from lunch you’re not able to edit it in anyway whatsoever. I understand a certain amount of security measures to ensure people are recording their time accurately but I think there should be some flexibility with an editing in the same day .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you set an alarm to remember to clock in and out or you create more work for your manager .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The most important business problem weve solved is preventing the employees that could possibly lie on time sheets when they’re not based on the punch clock systems. i’ve definitely noticed some benefits when it comes to requesting time off it is very simple and it tracks your PTO with your balance so you know how much time you have in the requests are easy to send to your manager and you get an approval almost immediately.

"Dayforce HCM"

What do you like best?

Dayforce has a wide selection of available modules, so it has the ability to be an all-in-one application.

The application is continually changing with weekly hotfixes and semi annual upgrades. While this can pose frustrations when enhancements do not work as expected, it is reassuring to know we can reach out to the support team and typically get resolution to major issues within a week. From an admin perspective, it is simple to configure, and there are plenty of documents walking you through how to properly configure and use features!

What do you dislike?

I love the fact the Dayforce is always changing, however, when things "break" we end up needing to find workarounds until a fix is implemented. We do understand this is the nature of saas products, so there isn't much that can be done to negate this. :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Employee self service reduces keying and mistakes made my HR!

"Greatly Enjoy Working in the Dayforce Solution!"

What do you like best?

We love that it is so customizable. Dayforce also implements a lot of enhancements and features from user suggestions. We find their support to be awesome, we email in the question/issue and the support team is able to assign it to the right person and get back to us in a timely manner. The all in one platform makes this so easy and all information is in one place significantly improving our data integrity!

What do you dislike?

That it is so customizable? We either need to pay for customization or have a designated person in house to know the system in and out and be able to make improvements when needed. That person also needs to stay on top of the improvements so they can be activated and used in the company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ask questions and suggest improvements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our payroll process is becoming more and more efficient. We are also able to integrate systems together either directly or through reporting to reduce duplication in other departments.

"Best upgrade ever!"

What do you like best?

Real time paycheck calculations. One system for administrators and employees to log in to.

retro pay calculation. Mobile app feature. Employee access to paystubs and W2s.

Dayforce listening to customers ideas and implementing them in future upgrades.

How Dayforce is constantly improving their product through upgrades.

What do you dislike?

when the system slows down or stops. When time clocks go down.

some portions of the system are complicated, like "Roles" you must check more than one box sometimes to get your desired result.

Recommendations to others considering the product

expect to do a lot of testing while in implementation stage. communication is key. make sure your implementation team knows what you need so it is set up correctly in the beginning.

implementation stage can be overwhelming and frustrating but the switch to Dayforce will be well worth it in the end

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

employees are able to see their paychecks before we commit so errors are being caught ahead of time which saves us time and money having to make corrections. Managers and supervisors have easier access to their employee's time sheets and compensation information. we are implementing the Benefits Module in January which will give employees easier access to their current benefits and also allow them to notify us of changes. We like all the transparency Dayforce brings to our business.

"Ceridian Dayforce - Improving Payroll Efficiencies"

What do you like best?

The ability to run multiple payroll previews at any given time, instance access to payroll information

What do you dislike?

The one pain point that we have is that there is no true Payroll Changes audit report per pay, that provides you with changes that have happened since the prior payroll. Very similar to the Executive Summary that was in Ceridian's Insync Blue.

The current changes report in Dayforce is not useful at all

Recommendations to others considering the product

My biggest recommendation would be that if you are using the Benefits module that you get a Canadian specialist from Ceridian during implementation, I believe this would have been helpful for us.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are minimizing our paper process and starting to have all the workflows and approvals right in Dayforce.

It is great to have the employee file right at your finger tips, whether you are in the office or not.

"Dayforce Seems Optimal, If Only Ceridian Could Implement Properly!!!"

What do you like best?

The electronic nature of the product adds to the ease. The mobile app is great but I wish it had more functionality. I do like the idea of going paperless and Dayforce helps out immensely, and the approvals are easy.

What do you dislike?

Implementation was a nightmare and even after 14 pay periods, it is still not set up properly. I also don't like that we can't call with questions, we have to submit tickets, which, in my experience, often gets misunderstood. We have even been forgotten about when trying to get things fixed from implementation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We had a bad implementation process right from the start including decision to switch. They forgot about us and we waited a year to implement which didn't sit well from the get-go. Anyone considering switching needs to be on the Implementation Team from the start and to utilize auditing once "go-live" as many things for us did not transfer from InSync to Dayforce causing major issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are getting better at having the staff manage their time better. The automation of the app makes it quicker and easier to use the product.

"Dayforce gets the job done!"

What do you like best?

The program fills all the needs that we're using it for. I primarily use it for employee reviews and time off requests. I haven't encountered any real issues when using the service.

What do you dislike?

The layout isn't the greatest. This may also have been user-error, but we were acquired back in April of '17, and the company that was using Dayforce that moved us into it, thought that you had to use Internet Explorer to access certain areas. As I had a "new set of eyes", I found where to accomplish those tasks within the actual interface, but it left me confused as to why no one else was aware of this prior to our acquisition. I believe support had been contacted, but no one had advised them of how to access these features without the IE workaround. That said, I am not personally aware if they did/didn't reach out to support for assistance, so it is a bit of a moot point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is quite the product for what it's purposed for. Spending time looking around the interface and knowing where things lie is key to utilizing the product to its full potential.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easily managing time off requests and employee reviews has been fantastic. Additionally, ensuring that reviews make it through the proper channels for approval has been quite the relief.

"Great centralized hub for HR data"

What do you like best?

We used to use two different platforms plus paper forms for all our HR data. Now, we have all of it in one easy-to-access spot. Being able to adjust benefits, maintain beneficiaries and dependent information without having to re-fill out information each year on paper forms is huge. Also, having one place to see time off accrual is helpful. Our old system was confusing in how it presented vacation time. This lets you see clearly how much time you have and what you should use. During tax time, this will also be very helpful, as it was so easy to download pay stubs and other documents necessary for that. The mobile app also has been helpful for many of the same reasons.

What do you dislike?

There's a bit of a learning curve to using the site. Plus, the timecard submission isn't as intuitive as our other site. However, that may be just a product of expecting the new site to match the old. It took some clicking to get the handle of submitting time off requests but that's to be expected. It also doesn't tell you whether the time off request has been approved through any means but in-program message. That's not a problem; for someone who's not in there every day, it can be a bit of a chore to keep checking until time has been approved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As a user, this has been a very helpful product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bringing all HR data, including time off requests, pay stubs and benefit data into one place. This localized information allows employees to access things much quicker, which helps our smaller HR department.

"It is an all-in-one software, helps improve your times and your customer support"

What do you like best?

One of my favorite feature that we can customize to meet the needs of our company depending on the offers and the change that drives it can be used for many things such as human resources, benefits, document management, etc.

What do you dislike?

Implementation I will do a little annoying due to delays and lost time with inconvenience but it is something that can improve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Since we use this tool we have had great benefits to our company so I would be comfortably recommending this software to other colleagues who need something similar to this level of power because it is a fundamental part of the company when you get used to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for payroll management and a lot in human resources helps us to control everything without using physical paper and through the computer we can organize ourselves better with this great tool which an internal team takes control of everything and offers a assistance and excellent document management.

"Dayforce- Prepare before Implementing"

What do you like best?

We love the SourceTax and single database approach, and reporting has been very flexible. We also enjoy the way that retroactive changes process in the system and the easy of viewing and calculating the upcoming payroll file for review.

What do you dislike?

We have some lingering issues from a rushed implementation, and we're struggling a bit with a few items that have been submitted to Dayforce Support that are not being adequately cleared. Because the system is so configurable, it's difficult for their support personnel to know enough about our iteration of the system to provide meaningful feedback on issues we encounter.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the Dayforce Live training (all of it!!) prior to starting the Discovery phase of your implementation. Your whole experience will be much smoother if you have a solid understanding of the system capabilities before you meet with your implementation team.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are in the process of consolidating our payroll for the 5 countries where we operate in one payroll system. We're already live for the US and Canada, and plan to go live with Australia and the UK prior to the end of the year. Singapore will be our next addition to the Dayforce platform. We have seen a significant improvement in end user buy-in. This program is easy for our employees, time sheet editors, and managers to use. It provides the opportunity to have a consistent user experience (and therefore, a single set of user guides) across the company. We have also seen an improvement in the availability of historical and company-wide data which has improved the efficacy of our reporting for everything from ACA requirements to CEO requests for data metrics on company-wide turnover and promotion trends.

"Dayforce provides everything we need"

What do you like best?

Its easy to use to handle all kinds of extra payments and hours of work without having to use any paper.

What do you dislike?

I could improve the recruitment module since they have to update to provide better functionality and scheduling interviews, it's something I would like to have changed to provide more standard reports to those clients who should report.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We have an excellent experience with this software, efficiently handle any task that is granted in any department for human resources is the best of all and I would recommend it to any company that you asked about this type of software, it is the best in the market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has been a very useful tool for human resources since it has streamlined all our payments and accounting movements due to its speed and we have had savings since since we use this tool we have got rid of the physical role everything is virtual in a more agile and professional way with the present our results have improved considerably since its implementation in our company.

"Excellent to access from any mobile device being anywhere."

What do you like best?

Export allows us to configure the deductions and see the earnings correctly to test them to put them into production. the education educational portal is a great advantage because it allows us to learn at our own pace to program the classes that we really need and are useful for our administrative function.

What do you dislike?

one of the few problems is the aspect of your reports because I usually have problems with the configuration of your implements and it is difficult for me to be ready in a short time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it is a complex system and at first it could be difficult for someone who has not handled a tool like this before but if you have the basic knowledge it can be a great solution for the company because it has excellent quality tools and normally fast response, Highly recommended.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have really benefited from this tool because our teams are enthusiastic since they use this tool for its easy use having adequate knowledge since it generates great accessibility from mobile devices and allows to send requests electronically and better customer service by correctly managing the roster. We have seen a decrease in the amount of paperwork that is processed in the company which is something excellent and a great result that we did not expect was so fast.

" Payroll/HR System is one of the best in the market"

What do you like best?

I love that you can customize the software to meet the needs of our company and thus improve our processes so that they are more efficient and accurate without interruptions where we can optimize all payroll and human resources data that translates into a very important time gain for us.

What do you dislike?

Something negative that could change would be to deepen the issue of training employees who have never had contact with the tool before and be able to optimize the fluidity of the Software Since sometimes it runs slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend trying these games to those who need a payroll and human resources system since it is the best in what it does for its ability to learn about the company and the default settings for excellent results.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The software has become a tool of daily use for our employees since it has considerably reduced the work of administration in payroll and human resources, speeding up all the documents on hiring, incorporations, benefit, document management and more.

"Save your company labor costs and help you in PayrolL"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to use as an employee since I can work and have the ability to make the request on the computer and approve everything in a great time so I am always sure what they pay me the right amount is excellent to carry the numbers.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to obtain more information and share ideas in a way that everyone can know our opportunities and collaborate with other users in quarterly meetings with our clients.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an indispensable tool for us and if you have problems with your payment system or account coordination is an excellent software that has no doubts that will respond to the height of its cost.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is an excellent tool that has saved us several times with the payments of the workers that everything arrived to the day and never in complying with the payments, we have a great gratitude towards the software because without it we would have many problems to coordinate our payments and it would take a long time which is a saving in a matter of time that translates into more profits for the company.

"The payroll quality has increased significantly"

What do you like best?

The payroll team has a capacity to provide executive reports very quickly. The time spent in producing management reports has been significantly reduced. The company's policies and agreements have been loaded into Dayforce, eliminating the need to produce paper documents.

What do you dislike?

I would like them to offer more in-depth training for those HRIS administrators, so that they can do more of our own configuration and have fewer billable projects. The platform is slow at times. It's just a small problem that can be solved easily in payroll processing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ceridian has greatly increased its equipment, if you are technical and willing to learn the system, it is far superior to the others and can have a very low maintenance, it is the best of the market is really recommended.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has been ideal for our time and attendance needs. We implemented the payroll module, which had replaced an obsolete old system. It has saved us time processing the payroll, for which, we have saved money. It has also been fantastic for our employees to record the project's coding hours for the units they have worked with in order to bill our clients for labor costs.

"It can be customized to fit our business needs."

What do you like best?

I can see my work schedule directly from the application on my phone. I can also make free time requests, see my next payment date, my next scheduled shift, see my availability and my earnings, all in one place. That's awesome.

What do you dislike?

There is a lot of training that needs to be completed in order to fully utilize and appreciate all that this software has to offer. They could provide a bit more for the new ones, even though it has an excellent comprehensive training site that contains videos, instructor-led courses, MyPath training, etc. It is a great preparation to use this system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Develop test cases around these elements and ask the provider to test the functionality. Each provider will approach the application from a different angle and this approach will allow end users to see how critical it is to have the functionality in action. You will see that Ceridian Dayforce fits your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits module is fantastic for employees to see the amount of their life, health and dental benefits. I am pleased to see all my payrolls for the whole year, to be able to calculate and make changes for the whole year. Thus, employees can view their balances from today and also in the future. After a little training, I feel much more comfortable in every way, it's a big benefit.

What do you like best?

My favorite part of CERIDIAN is The payroll processing cycle is more efficient. Which allows us to take care of more things while this sofare makes our work faster which helps us in the continuous growth of the Company

What do you dislike?

Payroll managers can edit and correct errors in real time to ensure accuracy and compliance. It is an excellent product that has helped us to stop wasting our time in administrative activities since it makes them automated. I have nothing against to say of CERIDIAN

Recommendations to others considering the product

CERIDIAN is a sofare able to manage from a small company to multinational companies, with an automated system, which will undoubtedly make them grow and be updated in all aspects of your company. Highly recommended for any company that is thinking of acquiring it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like many companies of today, we are fundamentally innovating, we are always looking for sofwares that simplify our work. Ceridian offers solutions specifically designed for the size, role and location of the company.

"Excellent to Control My Benefits."

What do you like best?

Dayforce is very useful in an environment where there is a fast pace. Workplaces that allow the use of mobile devices will really allow the application to stand out.

What do you dislike?

It would have been useful to know more about what was required and expected for implementation, so we could have made better decisions by assigning responsibilities during the implementation process.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The ability to automate many of the different payment rules described by state laws, such as sick time, is excellent. It is easy to navigate and touches all the functions of human resources and payroll. We use the piece of Human Resources to make our new hires.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use to inform about all employees, regardless of where they are located. We continue to find new ways to define and segment payment categories so that we can deepen and report on various cost areas. While many of our employees per hour do not always have access to a computer.

"Straightforward, Functional, and Helpful"

What do you like best?

Dayforce has an app for my iPhone that allows me easy access to my account. I'm able to clock in or out without a hassle, and I can check and edit my timesheet to reflect the correct hours I worked. It also allows me access to my earnings and time off requests, so I can check things even when I'm not in the office.

What do you dislike?

I do wish it had a way to log in by memory instead of making me type in my password every time. It also sometimes rounds my time to the wrong interval (ex. clock in at 10:07 should round down to 10:00 but it often puts it at 10:15 instead).

Recommendations to others considering the product

This product should fit most of your company's needs. It has time and attendance, earnings statements, year end forms, benefit elections, time off requests, and more. The app that works with the software is an added bonus, that provides flexibility to the employees.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having everything in one place has made managing my work details much easier, especially with the use of the app. I don't need to email HR as often to ask about my benefits or earnings, and I was able to access my end of year forms to do my taxes even before it was physically mailed to me.

"Time keeping made easy"

What do you like best?

While I am very new to Dayforce and use only a small corner of the system I have been very impressed. I use a different time management tool for my employer, but as a supervisor I oversee individuals who are employed by affiliates. For this I have access to the Dayforce system to approve timecards. I must say it is very sleek and easy to manage. As an approver, I do very little aside from logging in to make less than five clicks and my employee’s time is approved for the respective period – simple! For the employee, they can designate their intended work hours ahead of time and backtrack changes as needed. It gives them peace of mind, able to focus on their work, rather than constantly swiping in and out to avoid overtime, etc. With this comes accountability of hours worked of course.

What do you dislike?

The negative that I can see for some would be the easy means to simply “input” hours, and there is not a clocking in and out feature with a badge that holds employees to this. Given this, the system may not be ideal for large organizations or management structures with high numbers of direct reports. If there is a means to orchestrate an in/out system I am unaware, but again I am an outside user to this system. The only other negative is the coding can be a little confusing, or it’s not very intuitive. Examples are the abbreviations for paid time off vs. sick leave vs. leave without pay. I regularly need back track to my training to verify the code my employee entered.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a very multi-purpose HR tool and is very inline with the modern systems used by 21st century businesses. First understand what the system can do, and then review what the system cannot do. The grass is always greener, but with any system comes limitations that may not fit your industry.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a manager for employees from three different companies, I have found this extremely beneficial to gain access to the affiliates system. The means to get setup, trained, and running was extremely simple. This aide to the simplicity of the system. From my primary employer’s perspective, we have a means to get easy reports of the individuals that are working within our facility and the hours that are being back charged. Healthcare can be a multi-team supported environment and the means to remain effectively managing our contract/non-employees electronically has been very beneficial.

"IT GET'S THE JOB DONE!"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of navigating through the screens and different areas of the application. I love that it is EASY and self explanatory. It would not be difficult for Baby Boomers to navigate. You can edit the icons on your logon screen to fit your particular needs.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that it works best in I.E. as opposed to Chrome. It uses something called Silverlight. Chrome does not support Silverlight; therefore, the number of messages seem to never go away on the top right. I always have the message icon there with the #9 highlighted.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you test, test, and test again prior to going live. Ensure you ask ALL of the questions you can think of in the beginning stages of implementation to alleviate a possible headache down the line.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Great HCMS system, customer support is outstanding"

What do you like best?

The system is very intuitive and easy to understand how to make business processes more efficient. If you have an issue or question, their customer support structure is top-notch and focused on providing a full solution. I really enjoy being able to connect with other users through Share Ideas and Ceridian XOXO.

What do you dislike?

I think the recruiting module could be enhanced. I would love to be able to customize alerts to hiring managers that include the resume or other candidate profile information. Also, building custom reports can be a bit difficult if you are unfamiliar with SQL or how data tables work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Payroll used to take us three days to process and now we are able to cut that in half. Benefit review and utilization was very manual.

"great service"

What do you like best?

I like that dayforce is available as a website or an app; it makes it really easy for me to check my work info on the go. It's also very organized, showing me both the hours I need to work AND what kind of shift I'll have (floor, inventory, etc.).

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the app doesn't give me as much detailed info as the website, particularly on the calendar page. When I click on my shift for a particular day, all the info that comes up is a little overwhelming and not easy to understand. I also wish the site/app would remember my login info so I don't have to enter it every time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Extremely helpful organizational tool, whether it's for a small crew or a large team. Very intuitive, so there's minimal training needed for new hires who are just learning how to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Dayforce for staff communication, primarily schedule-creating and schedule dissemination. Everyone can see their schedules from their phones, and we have full control over what needs to happen with work hours.

"Easy, simple and makes life easy"

What do you like best?

I love how simplistic this tool is for scheduling, payroll, and other features. It does its job well. It is quick to produce a schedule and easy to access and read. I also like the customizable feature for settings on the homepage which makes it easier for me to navigate each function. Through many updates from Dayforce, I can see that they are listening to us as customers and users.

What do you dislike?

I wish others would be able to see each other’s schedule so others can cover so managers would not need to be involved much in finding associates to cover shifts. I also have noticed how long it takes for me to load Dayforce in order to punch in for work. If those were fixed, this software would be great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Would definitely recommend Dayforce to other users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is quick to get all my work done in scheduling and changing shifts as well. It’s a great tool to be organized, especially when scheduling employees and making payroll more efficient.

""Ceridian Dayforce - Improving Payroll Efficiencies""

What do you like best?

The electronic idea of the item adds to the simplicity. The versatile application is extraordinary yet I wish it had greater usefulness. I do like going paperless and Dayforce assists tremendously, and the endorsements are easy.The capacity to run different finance sneak peaks at some random time, case access to finance data

What do you dislike?

Execution was a bad dream and even after 14 payroll interval, it is as yet not set up legitimately. I likewise don't care for that we can't call with inquiries, we need to submit tickets, which, in my experience, regularly gets misjudged. We have even been disregarded when endeavoring to get things fixed from execution.

Recommendations to others considering the product

hope to complete a great deal of testing while in usage organize. openness is absolutely vital. ensure your execution group comprehends what you need so it is set up accurately in the beginning.implementation stage can be overpowering and disappointing yet the change to Dayforce will be well justified, despite all the trouble at last

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are showing signs of improvement at having the staff deal with their time better. The computerization of the application makes it faster and simpler to utilize the product.asily overseeing time off solicitations and worker audits has been awesome. Moreover, guaranteeing that surveys endure the best possible channels for endorsement has been a remarkable alleviation.

"Dayforce HCM"

What do you like best?

I find Dayforce very easy to navigate because it has a simplified interface design. This makes the system easy to use from an admin perspective, but has also been helpful with end user acceptance across the organization. Whether on a desktop or the mobile app, Dayforce is very user friendly.

What do you dislike?

The payroll module is complicated and not user-friendly. it took me a long time to get familiar with that navigation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to form a strategic cross-funcitonal team before implementing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Once of my favorite features that Dayforce offers is their mobile app. It's easy to setup, easy to navigate, and offers a ton of functionality for a very mobile employee population. As the mobile app continues to evolve, it makes managing employees and completing required tasks in Dayforce on the go that much easier. Amazing!

"Dayforce Review"

What do you like best?

I like the features, the system is a bit overwhelming because it offers so much. This system does offer a lot of reporting, workforce management, scheduling, performance reviews, recruiting, on boarding. We have been on the system since July of 2018, so we are still learning the system, but look forward to reaping the rewards of a streamlined process.

What do you dislike?

The support and the training are not very good. It would be nice to get faster responses from support of critical issues. The training is long and daunting to sit through. The reporting is very overwhelming and the training is not very helpful when trying to create custom reports.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The system is robust. It's a good system. It will take time to understand all the functions. I believe once the learning curve is over the system can make "Work Life Better"

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are still figuring out the system. I do like the ability to see an associates paycheck stub prior to posting the payroll. Some of the features we have are not completely setup yet. But I am excited to get our process set up electronic on boarding, recruiting and performance reviews.

"Ceridian Dayforce has helped us to become more efficient"

What do you like best?

Ceridian is easy for the end users. It is very intuitive and we have increased ourusage of self-service. I also like the sandbox that replicates our production environment. This makes testing and trouble-shooting easier.

What do you dislike?

I think that Ceridian can do a little work on their reporting tool for report writers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think overall Dayforce is a good solution. I think they are on the right track with having one employee record. They are in a good place, but they are still developing. If you are patient and want to grow with them, this is a great solution. They are constantly asking for feedback on how they can develop the solution more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By implementing Ceridian Dayforce, we were able to elminate OT for our payroll processors and we were able to become more effecient. For example, we were able to reduce our new employee orientation from 1.5 days to 1 day. Most of this is due to the onboarding process that we implemented. We are in the process of implementing the compensation module and we have already determined that adding the module will help us to become more efficient.

"Information Overload!"

What do you like best?

Our previous HRIS had very little to no useful information that as HR professional we needed to report on job titles, job history, EEO statuses and more. Within the HR module of Dayforce, we are able to pull complete and full reports for our benefit vendors with just a few clicks.

What do you dislike?

With this new system, we have had to adjust our internal processes because there are more steps to enter a new employee into Dayforce. But in the end, it's for the best because we now have access to more information about our employees than we ever had before within our system. Previously, we would be manually entering data after pulling reports or merging one report with another to get all the information we required.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Invest a lot of time in your implentation and testing so that when you Go Live, everything runs smoothly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Previously, we were manually complete onboarding paperwork and then entering into our HRIS. With Dayforce, we can send a link to our new hire and they can complete all onboarding electronically. The benefits have been great because we no longer have to enter all the employee's information, we are just reviewing and approving that the information looks to be correct in the system.

"Dayforce user since 2017"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that Dayforce integrates all of our HR needs into one place so that I can grab any piece of information I need about an employee at one time.

What do you dislike?

It feels like Ceridian is still working out the kinks in this software. There have been several occasions where I have spent hours trying to figure out why something isn't working properly, have given up and contacted support, they haven't been able to figure out why it's not working - and then a few weeks later I find out that the error is not something I did on my end, but that it's a bug in the system that will be fixed in a future update. That can feel very frustrating! But all in all, I believe Dayforce is benefiting our company and for the most part does what we need it to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ask a lot of questions to your implementation team. If you can, demo the product before going through implementation - this will help you have a better idea of how the information they are requesting from you will be presented and how it will work for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have 13 different locations and a central office, so since we implemented Dayforce we have been able to streamline a lot of information sharing and ensure that all of our locations are following the same procedures that the central office has set forth.

"Solid Platform With Good Support"

What do you like best?

Our implementation team was committed to delivering on our timeline and we get prompt responses from support now that we are in production.

The Dayforce platform is very intuitive for users. Employees love how easy it is to access their information. Very little training was required for most users. They also love how easy it is to request time off and see their time off balances.

What do you dislike?

There is limited customization available. You can sometimes find yourself boxed in by what information you can write expressions from. For example, most things are based on location and not pay group.

Wish security roles could be defined by pay group instead of location.

Labor metrics can be a challenge to review in the time sheet view. Supervisors have to dig into each employees detail to see the labor metric information. They can also be a challenge to report one. There isn't a standard report that shows man hours by labor metric.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We gone from paper timesheets in some plants to electronic time and attendance tracking. This has streamlined our ability schedule employees and manage employees time off to ensure we have enough coverage each day.

We've also built many interfaces with benefit vendors to import and export data so that we can reduce manual keying.

The cloud based platform allows us to get real time updates and preview the payroll prior to committing.

The effective date capability allows us to enter future and pass dated transactions when received instead of holding on to them until the appropriate pay period or when processing payroll.

"Dayforce on a scale of 1 - 10 = 10"

What do you like best?

Dayforce allows for instant HR updates, calculations of our pay runs on demand to see the liability at any time, the ability to build our platforms to meet our company organizational needs, and knowing that there is a support person on the other end of the line with the expertise and ability to help through almost any issue. I utilize Dayforce everyday, all day and it works very well for us.

What do you dislike?

The report writing program capabilities is a bit lacking and somewhat cumbersome but we have been advised that with our next release the on demand, custom report writing features will be greatly improved. Just an update....the report writing feature has been greatly improved. We are anxious to roll out V56 to our staff here.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a user friendly program with many facets that would complement any HR/Payroll program. The growth of the International arena is amazing and Ceridian's ability to meet our global needs has been easy and professional from implementation to go live.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a multi-tiered Entitlement benefit program based on Pay Class and Position and the system properly monitors the annual accrual limits in addition to the roll over limits beautifully, especially when an employee moves from one classification either up or down in the tiers. We have been able to modify these as needed as our company needs have and will continue to change.

"The Total Package"

What do you like best?

We are a multi-national company with employees in both Canada and the US. The system works seamlessly for both US and Canada. The best part about Dayforce is the fully integrated system. I have used a number of "fully integrated" systems in the past that weren't actually integrated at all. With Dayforce, you are getting the total package. With WFM, HCM and Payroll. The information flows seamlessly between each module. The flexibility of the design allows us to customize the system to meet the needs of our business.

What do you dislike?

The software itself is not as visibly appealing as other software's such as Workday. In addition, I dislike that some of the features only work with Silverlight. I'm pleased to hear that they are moving everything into HTML so that we no longer have to use Silverlight.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have used ADP Workforce Now, Workday and Ceridian Dayforce. Out of all the products that I have used in the past, Ceridian Dayforce is the best option. It has the best functionality and its the easiest to use. It has a far superior support team than the other softwares. Ceridian really cares about its clients.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We always had a difficult time trying to track vacation (paid time off) for our employees. We've been able to successfully track time off.

"Dayforce is Awesome"

What do you like best?

I like how often the system is updated and constantly improving. There are so many avenues for support that we utilize constantly. The system is very user-friendly an 95% of our staff use the mobile app which helps our employees have easy access to the system.

What do you dislike?

Some features don’t necessarily work with the structure of our organization. We have also had a few issues implementing new ideas that would work really well within our organization. Since we are a smaller company sometimes it's hard to be heard.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ask other associations that use Dayforce to see how it can be best utilized for your company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use a lot of the online forms which almost eliminates the need for paper files. When forms are submitted electronically, it is also much easier for us to find things rather than pulling physical files.

"Dayforce is a life saver "

What do you like best?

Ceridian Dayforce is a phenomenal program that allows employees to access paystubs and wage information from the beginning of their tenure at said company (assuming that company had Ceridian Dayforce at the start). I've been trying to buy a house and I've had to submit paystub after paystub and instead of bothering my employer about it I could easily check cDayforce and get my paystubs from there. Furthermore their app is super intuitive to use and allows me to check my sick time accumulation, how many hours I've worked for the week and even how many hours I'm scheduled for the week. I use the app daily because it just makes my life so easy. Furthermore, the app allows me to see my pay before my paydate (I get paid bi weekly on Friday) so I can plan for the future!

What do you dislike?

They recently removed the clock-in/ clock-out feature which can be a little frustrating when I'm already ready to work in my seat and I have to walk back to the clock, but that might not be Dayforce's fault but actually, my company decided to take it out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Absolutely use it! The ease of use is totally worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ceridian Dayforce has made it a lot easier to access crucial information and change my pertinent information if needed. It allows management to spend less time getting those fiiles for employees and more time making sure daily things get completed.

"End-to-End WFM Solution"

What do you like best?

Ceridian's DayforceHCM has been our workforce management solution for over 3 years now, and it's been instrumental in streamlining our people management. We utilize the system for job postings, application processing, interview management, hiring, onboarding, schedules, employee time, timesheets, manager approvals, payroll, benefits, paperless file management, compliance management and performance review. With 8 YMCA branch locations, plus 20 offsite program locations, having a fully integrated HRIS is critical to management of our 800+ employees. And as Ceridian enhances their product through release updates, we continue to refine our ability to manage employee, remain compliant, and develop our staff leaders.

What do you dislike?

With every HCM solution, there are going to be speed bumps along the way which create difficulties. Over the past 3 years, our organization has seen our share of these issues. As we experience issues we work with Ceridian to have it resolved, or create best practices to work within the product's framework. Compared to other HCM solutions, the positives in Dayforce far outweigh any negatives.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always approach and HCM RFP with your goals firmly in mind, what you absolutely can't live without, and keep those vital needs firmly at the front. They will make or break any system that you use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've been able to give more HCM capability to our managers in overseeing their people through the employee life cycle, plus give employees more self-service options, while also overhauling our HR practices with regard to compliance and paperless employee files.

"I love Ceridian Dayforce!"

What do you like best?

I like how it functions as a standalone cloud-based app and how data can be seen in real-time. There's no longer a need for importing or exporting data. A test environment is available for testing out new policies, deduction codes, and a host of others.!

What do you dislike?

Going through the reporting module is a big challenge. It's a bit difficult to see a topic containing data you're supposed to find. This particular module has been updated dramatically to 8.5. Within the latest version, making reports is simpler and with additional functionality.!

Recommendations to others considering the product

A very good software,I highly recommend it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We got rid of having to eradicate data entry duplicates into a few different systems. The app assisted in streamlining a bulk of our business processes, which greatly saved us a lot of time. It enabled us to concentrate on auditing resulting to highly precise payrolls.!

"Dayforce is great!"

What do you like best?

- User Friendly

- Employee Self Serve

- On-boarding

- Clean system

- Easy to track information

What do you dislike?

- Slow loading sometimes

- Implementation could have been better

- Information could be showcased differently

- Lack of flexibility - If you want to implement a change, you won't necessarily be able to do it alone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it! The only thing that bothers me is that I can't fix something myself that was implemented or set up a certain way and that drives me crazy. I do wish Dayforce may offered training programs directly (not videos) for people who want to learn the system so they can implement some changes internally as opposed to with the Dayforce team.

However, this system has everything! It's a wonderful system and I'd recommend it to anyone.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's stopped me from doing everything manually especially when it comes to on-boarding. I had a lot of different steps that started all the way from recruiting to the selection and on-boarding. Dayforce made everything come from one place.

"Excellent way of keeping all of your social channels in one place"

What do you like best?

I like your abilities to be able to configure our company's business and to be able to handle accurately the data offered for human resources.

What do you dislike?

They could improve the agility of implementation of the software a bit since it seemed a bit slow and extremely tedious since it was a bit difficult to understand but it was worth the effort.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We are really satisfied with the performance that makes this software pink and we would be happy to recommend them to any other colleague or any other company since its value and its system are worth paying what it is worth.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In our company we use it for many things, such as the processing of information in human resources, which is very important since we manage the payroll of workers and the wage rate of all of them.

"Best on the market!"

What do you like best?

Payroll! It is so much easier and far less manual. I also appreciate truly having one system instead of babysitting a bunch of back-end integration. Many of the other leading competitors for HCM all say they are one system but still use embedded code from other side systems. Dayforce truly is one. Every update you make in one part of the system shows up instantly in another part.

What do you dislike?

The reporting could be better (but I think the upcoming upgrade takes care of a lot of it). Also the Support teams could use some work. I feel as though I know more than the Support team often and am giving them advice on how to troubleshoot. I would also say the integration/feed implementation could use some work.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I cannot stress this enough: if you are using Dayforce for your Benefits, start the ball rolling with carrier feeds IMMEDIATELY. The implementation consultants will give you a timeline but do not take no for an answer. Start gather requirements from your carriers and scope documents and contact information ASAP. Seriously. It is imperative you get started early so you do not find yourself behind.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think the biggest thing we have addressed thus far has been payroll. We've seen a significant difference in the time it takes to process payroll. I also think, once our issues have been resolved regarding benefits, we could see the improvement with our processes there.

"One-stop shopping for your HCM Needs"

What do you like best?

We are a manufacturing company with locations in multiple states, with 2 union and 2 non-union bargaining agreements. That makes our Time & Attendance policies both very diverse as well as very complex. Dayforce is able to handle all the differences with ease.

What do you dislike?

Our staff is well trained on database management and configuration. It would be helpful if we didn't have to go through first-level support when we find the need to call the support help-desk.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need access to your HR and Payroll information, either in reports or in Dashboards, you will want to consider Dayforce. It is truly an all-in-one platform. No duplicated data entry. Plus, it is highly configurable, so much easier than other products to set up separate payrolls that have their own unique pay policies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have completely automated Time Away From Work (requesting, approving, recording time off requests), Attendance (points system, with alerts when a violation level has been reached); and leveraging our knowledge of the software to create a method to capture/track Intermittent FMLA.

"Dayforce: Great for managing time"

What do you like best?

The ease at which it allows me to alter my availability and view my schedule for work.

What do you dislike?

The communication system between users under the same company branch could be improved. Currently there is only a way to post shifts that one wishes to have covered, but there isn't a way to send out an alert or notification to other users to prompt them to view it.

I also dislike having to change passwords every 90 days. I understand the concept behind it, but when a person has so many logins for so many places, having to juggle another one thrown into the mix that demands to be changed is a hassle.

I also don't like that you are unable to see others' schedules when attempting to trade shifts. It makes communication one more step difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared to help employees do initial troubleshooting and training. Once they get the hang of it, employees are able to better manage themselves through the application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It prevents employees from needing to call to receive their schedules each week, they can access everything online or on their phone. It cuts down on missed shifts and helps organize the employees working for specific tasks.

"Offers so many options and helps with efficiency "

What do you like best?

Dayforce has so much to offer, between the workflows to eliminate paper forms to the XOXO customer networking it has customization to fit your needs.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I can say I dislike a little bit would be when I get customer support overseas. Other than that, I like everything.

Recommendations to others considering the product

DO IT! It was such a good business decision for us and we love it. My only recommendation is to not rush your implementation and to take the training classes before you start it. Then you will have a really good idea of what you need to set up and your implementation will go so much smoother. Also, make sure to send your main Payroll & HR users to Insights, because the education you receive their is so beneficial and the customer networking will save you so much time when you have an issue.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have now been able to combine a HR, Payroll, WFM, Document management, Performance and Benefits all into 1 system. It has reduced cost, time on data entry and efficiency across all departments. Giving the managers and employees real time access to their timesheets has reduced errors and extra work for payroll. Dayforce has helped us connect more to the younger workforce and give them what they are used to; access to their information immediately.

"A Simple Solution"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that it truly is a single cloud based application and the data is in real time. No need for imports or exports which eliminates data dropping off. There is a test environment available which is great for testing new policies, earings and deduction codes etc.

What do you dislike?

Over the past year, Dayforce has been converting from Silverlight to HTML. We have been using the system three years and have gotten very familiar with the screens in the Silverlight version. The HTML version is very different, so we have to relearn processes we were comfortable with. I have no doubt, in a couple of months the new version will be as familiar as the old, there is just an adjustment period.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep an open mind. Talk to your implementation team. Let them know your business needs. Communication is the key to a successful implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have eliminated the need to duplicate data entry into three different systems. Ceridian has helped us streamline many of our business processes which saves us time and allowed us more time for auditing which results in more accurate payrolls.

"Cadillac of payroll systems"

What do you like best?

The integration of WFM and payroll makes doing payroll quick and easy. The time away feature eliminates paper requests for vacation and other time off. Our managers have instant visibility as to who is away on approved time. Through WFM our managers can see instantly who is scheduled to work and who is at work. Our employees can view their time sheets, vacation balances, and make address and contact information changes, which are things they were not able to see with our previous system.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I dislike about dayforce. It is in my opinion the Cadillac of payroll systems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ensure you have time to devote to the implementation process. Dayforce is capapble of automating many payroll/HR/benefit functions and having the time at implementation to set up everything properly is crucial to success.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Proper flow of information and visibility of information for both managers and employees. The major benefit we have realized is time saving as vacation requests no longer sit on a managers desk and get lost, faster payroll processing as the payroll is linked to the timesheets. There are other benefits that we could achieve by using performance, compensation, and recruiting; however, we are not yet ready to start using those features yet.
