    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.

    In my organization, we mainly use Workday Prism Analytics in HR and Finance departments. It not only enables us to make data-centric decisions but also helps reduce the need for data experts since we are able to visualize data on our own through self-service analytics.

    Pros

    Ceridian

    • 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.

    • It's web based. No need to install any desktop clients on your machine to use platfora.
    • It's best suited for a big data Hadoop environment. I can rate it as the #1 BI tool for a big data hadoop environment.
    • Platfora follows kind of the same architecture as Hadoop architecture like Master and Slave architecture. It scales with the data volumes.
    • Querying data is very good and very fast. (Platfora Lens)
    • Client presentation wise it's good. You can get different kinds of graphs.
    • Platfora almost supports everything on Big Data technologies including file formats, compression etc.
    • Security is not compromised and it can deal in parallel with any Hadoop distributor security implementations. Just take an example of Knox on Hortonworks, so it will deal with that and cloudera , MapR
    • Its very easily understandable and for the new people who wants to try platfora, learning curve is low
    • You can create your own datasets in platfora. You can store your results as a dataset in platfora and can share across

    Cons

    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.

    Workday

    • Data Movement - Data needs to be moved from Hadoop to Platfora to create Platfora Lens and to do analytics.
    • To support Data movement, infrastructure cost is high.
    • To support data movement, network bandwidth consumption is high.
    • No trial versions for companies to evaluate.

        Usability

        Ceridian

        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.

        Ceridian

        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.

        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

        Alternatives Considered

        Ceridian

        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.

        Both are great products. The advantage of SAP Workforce Analytics is that it's widely interoperable between different APIs and databases. Having said that, Workday Prism Analytics scores much better in user-friendliness and the learning curve for the teams to start using it is very low. If Workday enhances its APIs functionality, it can compete easily with SAP Workforce Analytics.

        Scalability

        Ceridian

        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

        Ceridian

        • 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.

        • Improved ROI by decreasing the necessary time investment that managers must make to upkeep employee data sectors.
        • Improved ease of access for employees, reducing unnecessary communication between employees and management.
        • Has led to fewer accounting errors overall.
