    Ceridian Powerpay

    In all honestly I don’t know a situation where Ceridian Powerpay would not be appropriate to use. I have used it at a company with 12 employees, and at a company with 100 employees. The system works great regardless of company size and the benefits significantly outweigh any (if any) negatives.
    I only have experience with the system in the hospitality industry but it covered all our needs and more that I can only imagine that would apply to other industries as well.

    DATABASICS Time

    Easy to use with lots of customization. The PTO request and calendar is a great tool with real-time balances easy to access. The validation table is large enough to handle hundreds of projects with dozens of sub-categories. We also like the ability to send notices on our own schedule.

    Pros

    Ceridian Powerpay

    • Ceridian Powerpay simplifies the payroll process, very little manual work involved during each payroll run.
    • Ceridian Powerpay is mostly an intuitive interface with easy to understand workflows to allow for multiple users to be able to use the system if required.

    DATABASICS Time

    • I can use a mobile phone to submit timesheets.
    • The approver can approve from a mobile phone.
    • Can force organization policies in the system.
    • Notify users about holidays.

    Cons

    Ceridian Powerpay

    • Customer Support is Horrible
    • They over bill you for everything and ignore cancellation requests
    • They don't listen to what you need or want, they slip in cancellation clauses and charge you for inactive employees throughout the year.
    • They leave one person in charge of your account and should that person go on leave you are stuck waiting until that person gets back (including personal leaves that lasted 2 months)

    DATABASICS Time

    • The site is pretty plain and boring to look at.
    • I hear there is a mobile app in the works?

    Generally, Ceridian Powerpay support is strong, with the edge given to the telephone staff, which is prompt and always helpful. When I have had to reach out via telephone, I am greeted quickly and provided with a quick resolution to my issue. The email support leaves a bit to be desired, though, as my experience with change requests result in long waits for confirmation and completion, with some instances not even being given a resolution to an issue without requiring additional follow-up. I shouldn’t have to stay on top of the support in addition to providing the details needed, and it should just get done.

    Good value of money. Sped up the month-end closing time.

    Have not used any other payroll software in my experience.

    DATABASICS Time

    DATABASICS is the only system capable of handling our complex project dimensions. It's a basic system that's easy to use and easy to navigate. It does everything we need without being overcomplicated, unlike Deltek.

    Return on Investment

    Ceridian Powerpay

    • The return on investment has been substantial for our company. Having a payroll system that calculates everything for you, processes important documents, and only takes minimal time and effort allows us to focus more time on running the business and generating revenue.
    • Instead of having a user spend half a day (or potentially a full day) processing payroll, it only takes a couple hours (obviously depending on how many employees need to be processed).

    DATABASICS Time

    • Easy for staff to submit timesheets.
    • Leave management is a good tool to track leave days.
