EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

I can't imagine a scenario where it is less appropriate than any other 360 tool. It's easy to use, customizable, and inexpensive. Reports are easy to interpret. Great tool for anyone looking to implement a new 360.

Ceridian Dayforce HCM

Seems to be a very high functioning system. There have been regular updates in the 1 year I've been using it, and the updates provided by the system administrator have been timely and clear. Very simple to add users and hierarchy to better serve all end users. Great tool for any small to a large organization for their workforce management needs!

Pros

  • EchoSpan was extremely supportive in the initial training portion and is extremely quick to offer support when required.
  • Filled our request for customization and were easy to work with.
  • Excellent on-line training videos
  • Payroll processing across multiple countries. We operate in the US, Canada, and the UK. Dayforce is a single platform to handle it all.
  • Mobility is a trending requirement for our workforce. The DayforceHCM app allows our users to manage their time, time off requests and other payroll-related activities in the palm of their hand.
  • Ceridian does a great job of keeping their users connected through Insights and other events. The best resources for learning about how to grow through Ceridian are their clients.

Cons

  • It took us a little while to figure out how to set up a 360 (we didn't watch the demo videos until later), but once we did, it was very easy to use.
  • The continuity between implementation approaches and post-implementation support could be much better. Post-implementation, we needed a lot of work done on entitlements. When we contacted support, the best practices that they endorsed in certain situations was not aligned with the approach taken by the implementation team. This caused a lot of rework.
  • Project management resources during our implementation were not consistent. We went through 3 project managers on the Ceridian side during implementation and it caused huge issues.
  • Implementation resources were not dedicated to our project alone. This caused problems for us. There a fair amount of turnover on the Ceridian team, exchanging resources to move to other projects. This was not productive for our team, as new resources were often not the right fit or had less experience than their predecessors.

Customer support and the cost of the product would be my number one reasons. Customer support is fantastic!

Since our Implementation, we are very pleased with the features and accesses provided by DayForce HCM. The application is easily accessible. Trainings are readily available along with DIGS which aid in understanding and explaining upgrades and new features.

I feel Ceridian still has a long way to go to provide a trustable user friendly interface. It feels that a few things can go wrong and they will ruin the whole output of the system.I need to clarify that I deal mostly with the time clock part of ceridian, which involves scheduling, clock in and out, payroll, time off, etc. Here is where I think the usability is very poor.

We have never experienced a total/unplanned outages that effected our ability to process payroll. However, there are times when the application's speed is significantly effected - and processing a payroll may take up to twice as long as normal.

Because the training we reviewed at Insights has changed how we use the system everyday. This is a key factor in our training.

The session was informative, but went very slowly. The trainers were knowledgable but did not have in depth knowledge, as in, they could not answer questions outside of the scope of the training session.

There are so many ways you can program with software. Take the time to think about not only how you currently perform the tasks you do in other software or by paper and think through how you might improve upon your processes in the future and what things you may want to do differently in the future.

Alternatives Considered

Both EchoSpan and the other vendor supplied comparable products, so the major difference was the cost involved. EchoSpan is much more affordable and offers a very similar quality of report.
It is a time saver to say the least. We used to utilize 4 different systems for our HRIS and it was time-consuming and cumbersome. Every keystroke introduces the risk of data entry errors. Having an all-in-one reduces this risk and truly makes HR and Payroll much more efficient and accurate.

Since we have gone live in June of this year, Dayforce has proven to adapt to our needs and continues to listen to our feature requests.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
  • We do not have to use paper attendance cards any longer for attendance tracking. Dayforce has great attendance management.
  • Quicker payroll processing has increased payroll productivity greatly and has reduced processing time by half.
  • The fact that we do not have to log into more than one database to manage time and payroll is a huge time saver which directly affects our gross profit.
