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.

Justworks makes the life of a human resources manager easier, mostly due to the fact that it can automate all report scheduling actions based on certain dates, which makes it useful for storing information under an activity history. Since it gives the possibility to deal with applicants in groups and individually, it can be very well used in the generation of strategies that involve working with many applicants at the same time, thus saving as much as possible of this time. Justworks is a very attractive software because it adapts to any kind of workforce without losing performance. With this software, either through its desktop version or being deployed from its website, it is easy to organize the work in situations where it is not possible to work with some kind of deployment.

Justworks

  • Onboarding employees on their first day. We use Justworks to set up the employee calculate the first payroll, and perform the I9 employment verification. The process is seamless and all can be done electronically and automated which makes it very simple
  • Payroll processing. Justworks automatically calculates the payroll earnings, related taxes and withholdings and will automatically withdraw and deposit the funds. This is a seamless experience
  • Customer Service. Justworks is incredibly responsive and helpful. HR related issues can be a nightmare but Justworks make it easier and more efficient since they are always on call to answer your questions and make life easier.

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.

Justworks

  • JustWorks couldn't accurately track our PTO. We use an accrual system that maxes out at 88 hours. We incentivise our employees with additional PTO hours based off of goals met. The JustWorks platform allowed our employees to accrue far more PTO than what was offered. They didn't have a feature that offered a Cap and accrual.
  • When using the JustWorks reports for 401K, if not using their integrated 401K provider, the reports give you every employee regardless of whether or not they contribute. This makes it difficult when adding the contributions in separately.
  • JustWorks tracks historical data for employees. Whenever there is a salary change made, it keeps track. However, it shows a salary adjustment made on the day they are entered into JustWorks which can be very confusing. We switched from another PEO mid year and it looked like I made salary changes on the beginning date. This made it difficult to differentiate an actual salary adjustment.

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.

Justworks offers many different options for customer service. You can contact them via email, phone or Slack. They are quick to resolve issues and if your Account Manager is out of office, they have other Managers covering your account who are knowledgable and ready to support. They also have an office in New York, which makes their support even more localized.

Alternatives Considered

Ceridian Powerpay

Have not used any other payroll software in my experience.

Our review of alternatives concluded that ADP TotalSource is too expensive, too complex and lacks transparency, even for large companies. TriNet was much better, but post-acquisition it too has become less agile. Paychex isn't as comprehensive. There are literally dozens of others and you can spend a year just reviewing them all.

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.

Justworks

  • Positive Positive Positive! For the price point, it achieves many goals we need.
  • Because it allows us to leverage minimal resources to get a lot done, its ROI has been great.
  • Justworks has also allowed our company to concentrate energy in areas other than Human Resources which is also a benefit to its ROI.
