We run a six-week program, and I think many of the issues I have come from that fact - I only use this program for 4 payroll runs per year, so I forget many of the rules and things that need to happen. If this were something used by a payroll professional on a regular basis the rules would become more automatic and probably the issues I face would not be faced by a full time, year-round user.

I like the idea of RedCarpet. If it was fully functional for us, I really think it would be a great tool to use. However, the lack of response and the response time itself in tech support is definitely a downfall for our company

  • RedCarpet is a great system for notifications. It will let you and the employee know if there are items that still need to be completed.
  • RedCarpet is very handy for getting a headstart on paperwork that needs to be completed and stores it all in one place. It's very easy to access completed paperwork and print it out if necessary.
  • RedCarpet is user friendly from the employee side. It's easy to use and navigate through the tabs and task lists.

Cons

Ceridian Dayforce HCM

  • Multiple work assignments are not available to select while using pay adjustment within timesheet.
  • Reports. Finding a required report template or creating a new report can be a challenge. Employee Change reports are not user-friendly.
  • Shift rotation that goes from one day to the next required work-around.

  • The form builder tool is not super intuitive - especially as it pertains to creating and inserting lists for drop-down questions.

Nothing is perfect - including Ceridian Dayforce HCM. However, I can say that of all the payroll providers I have been associated with, Ceridian Dayforce offers the most comprehensive all-in-one platform currently available. It is not the simplest to start using right 'out of the box', but it is definitely the most powerful not to mention the most configurable.

It takes a lot of training and reading up on the processes in order to use it, but once you've had a lot of trial and error, you figure out the system quickly. Once you put together a user guide specific for your company's use of the product, it's easier for new employees to use RedCarpet and understand the different functions within it.

The support team is very quick to respond and to acknowledge case submissions. for a medium level case the response time is usually under 2 days. For an urgent case it is less than 1 hour in most case. They will work with you to get any issue resolved no matter what it takes or how complicated the request is

The individual contact people are alot more helpful than support@silkroad.com. However, once you're live, you're not supposed to use those contact people anymore, and it takes a couple days to even get an initial response from support.

Luckily the implementation team didn’t sell us on this product. They did a terrible job explaining - and scheduling as most of them lived on the west coast and we were an east coast company

SilkRoad's training/demo video was viewed well prior to beginning implementation. HR Team did not remember details and the video was not sufficient enough to understand all of the features within the system in order to communicate needs to the vendor/implementation expert. Implementation should have been walked through, step by step, by the vendor and each section of their required spreadsheet and the development of the portal should have been explained in depth.

Alternatives Considered

Ceridian Dayforce HCM

It’s been very helpful to our organization to have all over our HR components housed in one application, rather than piecemeal in various other systems. Those separate systems sometimes break the communication bridge that binds the two and disables our ability to do our job efficiently. This single application helps us to ensure all data is available to us at all times. It also assists us to be most efficient in that we don’t have to reenter data in various applications.

Return on Investment

Ceridian Dayforce HCM

  • When our managers are willing to look for and use them, the reporting tools available to them are very useful. Unfortunately, the reporting still will not include a manager's indirect reports unless they are granted access to the entire location. This has been a huge bone of contention for our managers.
  • The ability to create our own topics and reports has saved us some money over our two years. Other times it has highlighted the limits imposed on us. We had more control/access from ADP with the ability to use alias in custom joins. We have struggled with these limits, and are eagerly awaiting the improvements that will give us that access back. We have had to pay for billable projects as a result of these limits, however, when we could have done the same report ourselves out of our old system. We had to pay $2500 plus for a SOX required salary rate change report we could have built ourselves in our old system, for example.

  • I do not work in Corp HR so I do not know about ROI. As a user, RedCarpet as greatly improved my customer service. I don't have to wait for the manager to notifiy me of new employee prearrival, I get this from HR via RedCarpet around 30 days prior to the employee coming so I have plenty of time to prepare for them.
