    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've found myself recommending Nifty to other business owners as well as for personal use. I've personally found it to be invaluable when it comes to:
    • Daily / Weekly / Monthly / Quarterly recurring tasks
    • Creating templates for company processes such as new product creation, marketing strategy, on-boarding, quarterly goals, content management
    • Having forms zapped into a new task from multiple locations ensuring they're never overlooked
    • Having clear milestones and timelines for projects
    • Communicating on projects, tasks, and just in general
    • Assigning different components of projects to different people
    • Creating prior requirements that must be completed before completing the task

    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.

    Nifty

    • An overview of project timelines and milestones.
    • One-on-one or group conversations.
    • Tracking the status of projects and tasks.

    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)

    Nifty

    • Time Expense could be improved since we cannot edit the previous/past time logs entered.
    • Lacks expense management and Purchase order management functionality
    • Newest product updates are not always stable and I had to reach Nifty's support team a couple of times in the past to fix the issues with new updates e.g. our document management and meeting integrations had to be re-authorized

    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.

    Nifty

    There's no comparison. Nifty does what all of these do all in one place (with the exception of Slack's community aspect with hashtagging - not sure if Nifty can do this, never tried)Nifty even has the ability to import directly from many other platforms - I've personally imported projects from Trello and Asana, saving tons of time in migration.

    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).

    • Consistent communications.
    • Staying on project schedule.
    • Aligned projects with business strategies.
