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 lack of company support or response to inquiries makes this company a risk for anyone looking to adopt a HRIS/ Payroll system. There is not enough access to the back end of the program to be able to fix problems yourself and due to the lack of support or a dedicated person to reach out to, problems go on for a really long time.

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

Paycor

  • One of Paycor's strengths is that they continually strive to meet the needs of their partner companies (customers). I can always count on them working to make things better and introducing updates and products users actually want and need.
  • Customer Service is another strength. They are timely, responsive, and strive to get you the right answer instead of guess.
  • Another strength is that Paycor wants to partner with its customers. As a customer, I do not feel that we are just another number. I feel as if they genuinely want to listen and value what I have to say. They offer a variety of avenues to share your feedback and concerns.

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.

Paycor

  • No dedicated account manager.
  • You will wait on hold for hours on the customer service line until you have to hang up and get back to your real job.
  • I have never received a single response to any of the 5+ support tickets I have opened through their email support line.
  • Will run reports using their existing templates and still get null values.

Overall usability is solid and consistent for both direct users in HR and the occasional users by staff. My rating is less than a 10 due to the challenges with using the performance review portal of the system with its lack of customizable capabilities. Also, while there is a good variety of standard reports, the reporting module is often out of service and the use of the program to create your own custom reports is not user friendly

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.

It is always pleasant to interface with the Payroll team. They are sharp and understand my issues, even though I don't always know how to articulate my questions or concerns. I have had no issues with any payroll matters and that is a very good thing.

Implementation of any new software is going to be challenging, especially if you are maintaining an existing program concurrently. When it is time for dual-processing (both old and new software) prior to going live, be prepared to be stressed. But trust the process and it will be over soon.

For our company size we evaluated this to be the best product for us at this time. The pricing and service provided is also a big factor. Very reasonable and we like the customer service you offer, there are always questions and trying to get solutions answered as we look at you for professional advice. That sets you apart from other businesses because we as a law firm also try to accommodate our clients too. This good business relationship is very important as we continue to grow and knowing you have our back

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

Paycor

  • Managers have a better line of sight into their employees' time and can manage overtime more easily.
  • The actual time to do the payroll processing decreased from about 6 hours to under 1 hour.
  • The employee portal is easy to use and provides up-to-date information to each employee.
