    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.

    Zoho People

    Scenario 1: If you have to schedule meetings across time zones, then Zoho People would be the tool for you because it can help you identify convenient times for all the people involved. A good solution for managing, automating, and increasing the productivity of your staff. Scenario 2: Not useful if you're working alone and you don't have a team to work with and manage.

    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.

    Zoho People

    • Data Management- It's useful to have all data related to HR in one space, especially using the cloud. Separating data into relevant categories also makes administrative work a breeze.
    • Employee Resources- Having a central place for employees to reach out to HR is ideal.
    • Customization- Creation of forms is especially useful for a growing business.
    • Integration- Integrates well with other systems.

    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)

    Zoho People

    • We have had some trouble recently with getting new users set up. However, the support team at Zoho has been really responsive and helpful, so that's nice.

    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.

    Zoho People

    We only use Zoho People because it is part of our Zoho One suite. We originally used Zenefits, which was great for hiring/onboarding, and we currently use Employee Navigator to manage benefits and PTO, which is much easier to use than Zoho People. As of now, Zoho People is very buggy when it comes to managing PTO and there is currently no real benefits management or onboarding process that's easy to use.

    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).

    Zoho People

    • Its return on investment is impressive. Since we implemented Zoho People, it has helped us a lot [with] managing our employees. It is the best.
