Ceridian Dayforce is one of the large human capital management (HCM) system providers. I would expect most large organizations would have it on their shortlist if evaluating HCM providers. It has a variety of modules in the HR space. Our usage is limited to payroll and benefits for the United States. As an end user, I find it to be fairly intuitive and the integrations with other systems (SuccessFactors, third party benefits providers) in my experience has worked without issue.

Pros

Avature

  • Simplicity - HR specialists and recruiters using the software will be able to use data and analytics to track the progress of their prospective candidates.
  • Versatility - Avature's customer service team will work with you to build a customized workflow.
  • Flexibility - The ability to update and change the system ensures that this platform will continue to serve organizations today as well as tomorrow. As the last 24 months have shown, organizations must adapt to the changing workforce.

  • Benefits and Payroll Integration - changes happen in real time.
  • Workflows - still working on creating some but we created some so that when employees make changes, we are notified and that's great so nothing goes unnoticed.
  • Site is easy for employees to navigate and has a 'clean' presentation.

Cons

Avature

  • Some of the better parts of the CRM system must be purchased.
  • Reporting could be easier/better, kind of cumbersome to run a report.

Ceridian

  • Benefits functions on HR side, too much manual entry.
  • I know it’s for protection purposes but it gets annoying when you constantly need to input a security code texted to you.
  • Wish the onboarding progress page for managers can automatically update instead of being needed to manually update.

      We are highly invested in Ceridian's Dayforce product. It give us the flexibility and scaling that our growing company needs. Its potential reaches beyond the basic HR functions to the decision making that our Management Team needs. Ceridian is always innovating the employee and employee experiences to offer cutting edge options.

      I think it's very usable for the employee. I don't think it is as easy for the HR/PR admins - especially if there is an issue. There are so many setup screens that need to be looked at to try to figure out why payroll isn't calculating properly, hours aren't feeding over correctly, or benefits are not calculating properly. For the most part, they can't do their own troubleshooting. The same is true for the managers. Our managers find it cumbersome to go into make any schedule changes after the schedules have been generated.

      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.

      Great and fast responses, always available during implementation phase.

      Most of the time the support is great; it's not always super efficient but I always get the help I need. Occasionally it takes a lot longer than we had hoped or get conflicting responses. We had one ticket recently where we were told we would have to pay the service team to support us on the project and then another person called the next day with the solution to our query and was able to find a solution easily. Generally, though, the response is great and they either walk me though how to do something via a Zoom Meeting or they email step-by-step instructions on how to do it and say if I have questions we can set up a meeting to discuss further.

      The online training has been really good, I can do some online sessions/courses on my own time which is great for time management. The on line class type sessions have been really good too, they provide a great overview with some additional features or where and how to look to make some changes.

      Have a strong internal team. Communicate with your implementation team - they are there to make it work for you. Take the time to really think about how you want the system to work for you - in some cases, you may need to rethink your own business practices to see if you are working harder when the system could do it for you

      The system is extremely innovative and easy to use, it permits a great deal of bolt-ins during a standard format so the system will be personalized to the company’s wants and of those who will be exploiting the system.

      ADP Workforce Now is the system we used prior and that I still use for other consulting services, and this system falls far inferior to the functionality of Ceridian Dayforce especially in terms of payroll processing and delivery but also in other aspects like benefits, employee profile management, and access permissions.

      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

      Avature

      • The hiring workflows, forms, and portals are all easily customizable to work for our organization. They have created efficiencies allowing for our staff to focus on other tasks.
      • The modernization of the hiring process has generated renewed interest in our organization's brand.
      • Once understood, the platform is simple to use and easy to design. The continual updates and improvements allow our organization to evolve and adapt to an ever-changing workforce.

      • There's no paper handling for employee's PTO requests, manager approvals, etc. This is a huge time-saving and hassle-saving aspect of the system.
      • Employees no longer print out their paychecks - it's all on the app. And we pay less for mailing checks all over the place.
      • Employees enroll in their benefits now, which was also a huge time, paper, and cost saving!
      • Employees attest that they received all of their meals and rests via the biometric clocks, so paper doesn't have to be kept - the system tracks that info now.
