    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.

    It's a great intro into a workforce management tool, but our use of it is basically as a calendar without it being linked to our actual calendars. It's just another tab that we have to keep open throughout our workday. It's great that we're able to see everyone who is working at what time and what channel of support, but I believe that there are visual aids that can be added to it to make everything much easier to read and more user-friendly.

    • 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.

    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)

    Shiftboard

    • The ability to print a month view of the schedule would be a great benefit.
    • The signup list is a great feature, but there are too many steps to make it easy to use.
    • The bulk add and delete process works well, but tends to be confusing for users.

    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.

    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).

    • Effective allocation to proper shows/projects for our network
    • Effectively catches any discrepancies between scheduled hours and actual hours for employees
    • Requires significant manpower to maintain scheduling accuracy
