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.

The application has been totally useful in our company because we work with employees who need to clock in and out, so we can narrow down the time spent and determine our payroll more accurately. Deputy has been perfectly suited for our operations staff because that department must manage multiple tasks daily, and with the mobile extension they can diversify their time spent on each task. Through Deputy we can make notifications regarding work time, including holiday or deadline notifications for the completion of a task. Similarly, we can personally notify an employee when he/she is assigned a day off.

Pros

Ceridian Powerpay

  • Phone clock in and clock out.
  • Geotagging of the clock in process.
  • Integration with Gusto.

Cons

Ceridian Powerpay

  • Would be great if you could search for specific ROEs in the system rather than having to go into each individual pay period package to locate - especially when there may be 10+ ROEs.

  • We are still waiting for the ability to approve or deny leave requests from the mobile app. Currently it has to be done via desktop.
  • We’ve had a couple issues with push notifications but they have improved greatly.
  • The “require confirmation from employees” feature on messages doesn’t seem to work every time.

Timesheet tools often don't have the best usability for an outsider. Deputy bucks that trend. Everything is clean and simple in layout, and functionality is easy to identify. You don't have to waste too much time trying to find the tools you need.

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.

Deputy support is quick and responsive. We honestly haven't needed to reach out to their support much at all, but their live chat has been great in rare instances where we need some help.

Deputy was the simplest to train and use and the most efficient for our specific business needs. It was much easier to train on as we did demos of a lot of other tools as well as cheaper than many on the market right now. We were able to get reporting out of this tool as well which many did not have as a part of their softwares.

Return on Investment

Ceridian Powerpay

  • Positive: Ceridian Powerpay is cost-effective for our organization as we do not require a more robust solution—it fits our needs well without breaking the bank.
  • Positive: Ceridian Powerpay is mostly intuitive, easy to use, and as a result, easy to train team members in. This allows for additional coverage for the payroll system should the key user not be available or require assistance.
