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.

I consider this Human Resources Management software as best because it's makes the recruitment and hiring process faster.Managing employees performance using this software is delighting and I therefore recommend any organization to try out this software as it never disappoints.

Pros

  • 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.
Matt LeMaire, B.A., M.A. | TrustRadius Reviewer

FinancialForce HCM (Discontinued)

  • FinancialForce HCM gives you the full life cycle of the Hire to Retire process supported by standard Salesforce functionality.
  • The employee and manager self-service functionality allows for end users to be more efficient in their daily HR tasks.
  • HR admins gain 360 views through robust dashboards and reports.

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)
Greg Dykstra | TrustRadius Reviewer

FinancialForce HCM (Discontinued)

  • When we add a new position and requisition, we were under the impression, that the posting would pull automatically from the position. This is true, but it jumbles all the information into one long paragraph.

Based on 2 answers
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.

Have not used any other payroll software in my experience.

FinancialForce HCM (Discontinued)

After discussing several HCM vendors, it was decided that Financial Force HCM was the best fit for this client because it had the right balance between features and price. Considering the modules they required, and their current software setup (mainly Salesforce) Financial Force HCM made the most sense for this client

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).
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

FinancialForce HCM (Discontinued)

  • Gained efficiencies in having workforce on one system of record - Salesforce
  • Ability to see full life cycle of Hire to Retire without having to utilize excel or other systems
  • Requires a resource who is proficient at Salesforce administrative tasks
