Ceridian Dayforce is well suited in payroll where the system has multiple functions to audit, review, and process payroll. According to the new Ceridian Dayforce functionality coming soon the use of AI technology to engage in payroll in a more efficient way is a great way to scale this area of the system.

I use OnPay to do payroll for two different companies. One is a simple service company with employees doing the same tasks and receiving the same pay rate. OnPay does a great job with this company. The other company is a restaurant and bar with employees doing several different tasks, making different pay rates and also receiving tips. OnPay makes what could be a nightmare to keep track of simple. Setting up the somewhat complex criteria for each of the variety of positions is made easier by the step-by-step process of entering the information. Each area of functionality is available in the set-up mode and tended to logically. I used another high-profile, more expensive product before switching to OnPay and there is no comparison regarding support expertise and ease of use, not to mention cost savings.
Read full review Pros Reporting. It has an extensive report builder with stock reports, ad-hoc reports, and the ability to build your own custom reports. Payroll. The continuous payroll engine makes processing complex payrolls much easier and faster. Forms. The stock forms are a great jumping off point to start creating custom forms that work better for your processes and organization. Documentation. Every module is well documented, and you're always bound to learn something if you read through them properly! Read full review Providing a simple method of adding new employees. Payroll day is not something I dread with OnPay's simple step-by-step guidance. Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly and Yearly taxes are either paid or set aside easily so I can make those payments. Year-end w2's and 1099's are available and easy to create and provide to employees and contractors. Read full review Cons In payroll, there are sometimes issues with calculating pay when people’s rates change mid-pay period Would love to see an option to assist with building SQL or XML statements in the future (maybe co-pilot AI?) Would love an easy way to store pre-hire documents with candidates that syncs over to their HR profile when hired Read full review You can add additional additions or benefit items such as a car allowance. The process required me to contact a representative as that wasn't as easy to navigate. The process for handling additional withholdings for pre-payed taxes required support to ensure the calculations were accurate. Process for on-boarding is a little tricky if you don't start the process from the point of hire. You can add various things easily but it reflects differently in terms of completion of an Employee file. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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.
Read full review Usability
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.

OnPay is super easy to use. If I don't know something it doesn't take long to figure out just by navigating the website. If I still can't figure something out I usually "chat" with them and it's easily resolved.

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.

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.

I would say support is one of the best features OnPay has. You can call, chat or email. With ADP I was always on hold for a ridiculous amount of time. They also did not have chat when I was with ADP.

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

The online training is very good, there is a wide variety of topics offered and several dates and times. The instructors are very knowledgeable about the subjects they are teaching. There are so many ways to program Dayforce that just the basics seem to be covered in the class.

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

Onpay was a "no-brainer" . Implementation, training, and ROI, exceeded all the other platforms we reviewed. Plus their customer support is excellent. You always know who you're working with. Really appreciated all the help we received implementing clients, and great customer service from our client rep
Read full review Scalability
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.
