ADP Enterprise eTime is good for smaller employers with very few variances in policies, PTO/sick accruals, etc.

Having all of the schedules roll over to timesheets and the audit trail in timesheets has really helped us. We are now able to look back and see if managers are changing punches and if it was the employee who really did clock in late.

Pros

  • Once the pay rules, access, time entry method, etc. is set-up correctly, the system accurately calculates time, PTO, OT, shift differentials, etc.
  • Entering punches, pay codes is easy for employees to use.
  • Approving time cards for managers is easy.

  • Dayforce is great at connecting the managers, Payroll and HR to the employees. The messaging function has saved all of us time and lets us talk to employees not on site so much easier.
  • The workflows and forms are a huge strength for Dayforce. Without them we would still have a ton of paper forms and have to sort through boxes of files to look back at old forms.
  • Having performance management, document management, payroll, timesheets, schedules, on-boarding and recruitment all in one system is awesome. It reduced all of our data entry and errors.

Cons

  • The system could be set up for easier transfer of hours and accruals into other ADP products.
Pamela Black profile photo
  • I work in benefits and I can see how Ceridian can put a bit more focus on the benefit module. We don't have a typical plan year of January through December so the system takes a bit more specialized focus to set up the benefit plans.
  • The system could also work on how it calculates benefits with multiple payrolls. For example we have semi-monthly employees and bi-weekly employees and the system doesn't calculate the employee/employer costs of benefits properly between the two payrolls. It can only handle one type of payroll at a time so we have to manipulate the system to calculate the correct costs.

It's a great system and I do not see us changing anytime soon. It's so customizable that there is no need to look for another product.

Usability

ADP Enterprise eTIME5.0
Based on 1 answer
In some ways, the flexibility of eTime makes it much more usable than some time card systems. I can log my own hours at my convenience (as long as it is during the pay period), and eTime sends me a reminder email 24 hours before the cut-off for each pay period. I can log hours for multiple positions using particular pay codes, although there is no way for me to save frequently used or "my" pay codes -- adding this feature would be a much-appreciated improvement to eTime's usability. Juggling multiple pay codes within the current system, however, is cumbersome. There can also be problems if an incorrect or overlapping hour is accidentally entered and saved -- certain fields turn red and are difficult to adjust, often requiring the help of a software administrator. Correcting other errors and entering historical hours is extremely difficult, and the software does not work well on some browsers (and it is unattractive when I have been able to get it to work)

Overall Dayforce is a very user friendly system. Unfortunately, there are modules that are not as user friendly. Benefits management has been a struggle because of how challenging it is for our facility hr staff to manage. Our COO has completely given up on scheduling. She feels that it is too cumbersome for our department heads.

We haven't noticed any slow-down due to the integration of Dayforce WFM with our Ceridian HPL products (HRIS and Payroll). The new HTML view of the timesheets don't load as quickly as the old Silverlight view - however, we have gotten used to the change.

Support is an area that Dayforce could work on more. That being said, they did recently implement a new 'pod' system for handling support inquiries. This has resulted in better understanding of our unique configuration as well as quicker turn-around times.

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.

Overall our implementation was good. We were able to work with a great team to accomplish the implementation with minimal issues. I wish we had spent more time on identifying reporting needs prior to implementation, since that is where we struggled after we went live on the new system. But it went well.

This is the only time & attendance system we've used so far but will be moving to WorkDay time & attendance within the next year.

Keeping all data on one platform makes it so that it all flows between the different features and functionalities. This and other aspects of the cross function integration (as alluded to in previous answers) saves time and is more intuitive in making all these different HR phenomena function and confluence alongside and into one another.

Overall, we are extremely happy with the Dayforce WFM module. Our biggest pain point is concerning the twice annual software upgrades - which is the only reason I haven't rated them as a '10'. Because every customer is configured differently, the upgrades can sometimes have adverse effects on our current configured policies/rules. And although they roll-out the upgraded version in a test environment several weeks before go-live, not all testing is accurate in that environment. Some issues do not present themselves until you are working with live punches.

Return on Investment

  • The system allows our employees to quickly record their time so that they can focus on their day-to-day jobs.
  • The system allows our managers to quickly approve time cards.
  • ADP Enterprise eTime does not have a sufficient query function to enable employers to easily create/schedule reports that the business needs. ADP charges high fees for custom reports.
