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

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.

  • It is not possible to edit time logs because there are no comment sections in time logs.
  • I just want to see more templates added.

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.

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

  • 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.

  • Its scheduling features are very helpful in project management.
  • I don’t like its mobile application and needs a lot of improvement.
  • There should be a dashboard for the analytics.
