ADP RUN

We have only run small payrolls (2-5) employees, but we do run multiple company codes. It was very easy to get started and has been even easier to maintain. Before RUN, my tiny payroll was a beast - calculating checks, taxes, making tax deposits, preparing W2s, etc., all of which was very time-consuming and I dreaded doing payroll all together, not to mention the tax implications if I messed something up. Now with RUN, a few simple clicks and both my companies payrolls are run, money is withdrawn from our account in a timely manner and direct deposits are always made on time or early. We absolutely love the system.

Dayforce appears to be a product that was designed for retail, however, we have made it work for our environment in a law firm setting. It works well for time management to my knowledge, but our recruiting, performance management, and billing through accounting is still outside of Dayforce in other systems.

Pros

ADP RUN

  • The key strength of ADP's Run is the simplicity of their web portal. Site navigation is easy thanks to large Icons and clearly described links. Every feature seems to be accessible within 2 to 3 clicks.
  • ADP's support is very helpful. I have called in a few times and the wait is never long to reach a support rep. The support has been able to address any issues I've had in a timely manner and will stay on the line to walk through steps until I am comfortable with them.
  • The sales reps are great. They did a great job of walking through the features and comparing them to my current provider. They came onsite to help with the transition to ADP, and even came to walk us through the first couple payrolls to make sure all the steps were understood.

  • Dayforce has allowed our time management, payroll, and HR to be in one system. This is a great time saver and prevents us from having to configure other systems to 'talk to each other'.
  • The workflows in Dayforce have allowed us to set up many paperless processes, saving time and reducing the risk of misplacing a paper transaction. Changes made in Dayforce are easily accessible, transactions can be found in just a few quick clicks.
  • The setup of Benefits allows us to easily see who is eligible based on the qualifiers within the plans.

Cons

ADP RUN

  • It really provides all we need and more.

  • The HTML roll out to replace Silverlight has been somewhat difficult for us. In a few areas, namely MyPay/Payroll and MyHR/People, we have had a more difficult time adapting and finding the same functionality we had before. More of a learning curve, but still "uncomfortable" nonetheless.

Once trained on the basic functions the program is easy to use; as far as training the overall process is very quick as you can follow standardized videos but also the program is intuitive.

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.

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.

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

ADP RUN

I have only used an accounting software program. I was very hesitant because I've never used an outside source. Kind of scary letting go. But I talked to many colleagues that use different software so I finally felt comfortable going ahead and using ADP.

ADP, and before that we were on an in-house system based on Gemini. Gemini was not user friendly, but it was much more flexible and powerful than any other system I have used. And because it was in-house we were only limited by what programmers could do. ADP had its issues, but we had access to any part of the system, and very few limits on what we could report on. We also had more power and flexibility in their report writer. We went backwards on our report building ability when we went to Dayforce. This is being addressed slowly by Dayforce, at least, with all improvements I have been hoping for at least on the roadmap. Again, the ease of use and quick results have not been our experience with Dayforce yet.

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

ADP RUN

  • Saved me training time
  • Saved me on the complete set up for Quick Books and paying someone to do it for me
Eric Torres profile photo

Ceridian Dayforce HCM

  • Dayforce has had a very positive ROI. The labor costs itself by combining programs together is in itself instead of having to pay for multiple programs, and we have barely scratched the surface of the full potential of Dayforce. We've also seen a significant paper reduction as much of our forms have gone to paperless through Dayforce.
