https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/28/zA/GRRFZG7EG952.PNGDayforce HCM for Service FirmsWe use Dayforce HCM to manage our payroll, time away from work, performance management and recruitment - in other words for almost every aspect of managing human resources. It has addressed issues with information sharing between management teams, engagement with employees, and has helped save time on HR processes.,Allows employees to see current balances for vacation time, and allows them to administer vacation requests directly within Dayforce HCM without the need of paper forms and processes. Reporting on trends, allowing HR to gather data for use in forecasting trends in attendance, recruitment, salaries, etc., all the data is housed in one program and easily accessible. The use of pay grids and categories for jobs allows ease of access to information for budgeting and for working with industry surveys.,Support on time sensitive issues such as resolving a payroll question can sometimes be slower than preferred. While it accommodates salaried employees, there could be some improvements on the functionality of the timesheets and time recording for those groups who do not technically punch a time card.,10,Once implementation has been completed, and staff are trained, it has returned time back to HR and leave administrators.,The speed on the return of information is excellent and allows us to quickly assess financial trends, but more importantly from an HR perspective, it has permitted real time sharing of data such as payroll, overtime, attendance, etc., that previously may have had to be given to HR in a report form the month following after the data was gathered and analyzed in various spreadsheets from the other programs.,We have a significant salary base and a few hourly workers. We have easily been able to create rules to run the Alberta Labour Standards for calculating overtime and statutory holiday pay. Once the rules are set - review of the pay is easily done.,,Adobe Connect, OrangeHRM,Yes,Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Vendor Reputation Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor,We would have a better plan in place as to what we wanted to achieve with HRIS software so we could ask better questions of all vendors.,Yes,Change management was a big part of the implementation and was well-handled,Learning the language of the program - key phrases such as "paid to schedule", "TAFW" and other acronyms were initially a confusing jungle. Understanding the requirements for time to be put into the program to get it set up.,8,Requesting time away from work and getting approval for same Hiring new employees and setting up their HR profile and payroll information,None! Once set up everything is very user friendly.,Yes,10,10,10Time to start using Ceridian DayforceHere at Orvis all of our departments use Ceridian Dayforce to clock in and out of shifts as well as in and out of breaks and lunch. Most of the employees use it for keeping up with their schedules as well as requesting time off. Ceridian Dayforce also allows us to transfer between departments so management can see when each employee was in which department.,Ceridian Dayforce does well at allowing us to clock in. Ceridian Dayforce Is great for keeping up with your schedule and requesting time off. Ceridian Dayforce is also great for tracking what employees are working in which department.,once you have finished typing in your employee number it automatically enters without confirmation so it's easy to clock someone else in or out if you press a wrong number. On occasion, punches don't seem to register but this is rare but ongoing. Ceridian Dayforce will freeze up occasionally but closing it and reopening it works to fix that.,8,Its ease of use makes it a great system for everyone. Having easy access to the digital system makes keeping up with old check stubs obsolete Is much more than just a time clock. Having one system to cover multiple functions makes things much easier.,As an employee, I am not in charge of compliance so I do not know what features Ceridian Dayforce has to enable compliance. It tracks all employees time so management can at a glance see that employees are working hours within compliance but I do not know more than that.,I do not do the hiring, scheduling or compensation so I am unaware of how this impacts those aspects. I would imagine having all the information in one space instead of different programs would make things like that easier. Having all the employees schedules on hand would make finding the time gaps easier to see and fill with new staff.,,VMware Horizon (formerly VMware View), Bold360, NICE inContact CXone, JabberDayforce implementation userWe use this across the whole organization. It controls time and attendance, payroll, benefits, performance reviews, onboarding paperwork, and i9 details. It's the best solution for a paperless work environment. It allows an employee's complete history record to be visible without pulling a file.,Form data: it allows you to use system or custom made forms. Helps allow managers at store level submit paperless request. Workflows: tied to a form, each workflow is custom with routing and notifications or conditions to ensure that what is submitted routes properly. Onboarding: allows for quick visibility to where progress is and who has completed.,Forms to be mobile friendly Guided processes that can be edited after being published. Performance management to allow edits within qualifiers after posted.,8,Great ROI at store level, managers no longer Hassel with hire packets and entering employee data manually. Employees have visibility of pay stubs and no longer need to request them from the office.,Lawson (Intentia)Dayforce from a Multi-state and International PerspectiveWe use Dayforce for timekeeping, sick/vacation entitlement tracking, HR records, payroll, labor law compliance, and document management. In our US and Canada operations, we use Dayforce exclusively for our payroll processing, and we're working toward adding the UK and Australia to the list of our countries that process payroll through Dayforce. We currently use timekeeping, entitlement tracking, and HR records for all employees company-wide. We love the single platform approach since it nearly eliminates the need for dual entry we have to do between our HR/Payroll departments.,Single platform for HR and Payroll. When one thing changes, it cascades through the whole system, keeping us on track and reducing the likelihood of data entry errors. Time Calculation flexibility. If there is something that can't be configured within the pay configuration, I've yet to discover it. Need your employees to get OT for hours after a certain time? Done. Need shift rates applied? Done. Need meal penalties assessed for shifts above a certain length (for you CA employers)? Done. I could go on and on- but the point is that the system can work for you, no matter your needs. Real-time payroll calculations. Need to check if a garnishment is going to be correctly applied to an employee's pay? Need to see what impact a commission payment will have on employee taxes? Need to check to see what your to-date payroll liability for the pay period is? Any of these and many more are at your fingertips in just a few minutes with the ability to recalculate the pay file at any time during the pay cycle. You no longer have to wonder what your payroll will look like when processing day comes along- you can see it all along.,Configurability. Dayforce is still getting up to speed on how to manage the configuration abilities of the product. You can do pretty much anything, but this provides an issue when trying to get support from them - no one is an expert on your system since literally, no two clients have the same configuration. Reporting. While constantly improving, the reporting feature is complicated to use for someone who needs specific information. You practically have to be a programmer (and some options require SQL knowledge to implement) in order to get the report you want. Also, the auto-formatting makes it tricky to manipulate the data after the report is run, if you are trying to use Excel or CSV to extract data points for complex analytics. Fortunately, you can turn this off - you just have to remember to update the settings before processing the request for the report. Workflows. We've run into issues with certain things, like time off requests, being stuck in limbo when management changes. If the request was originally submitted to one manager, and then that manager makes a move or leaves the company, the new manager cannot view the request, so the SysAdmin has to intervene.,8,Our value has been primarily a uniform end-user experience. It's not cheaper than other programs we've used. It's not all-around more user-friendly than other programs. However, it gives us the capability to provide a single set of instructions company-wide so that all employees and managers have the same experience, no matter where they are located. The secondary value we've seen is in the streamlining of our hiring/termination processes. Our business is very seasonal in nature, and we hire about 800 employees at the beginning of each summer season, only to have them separate from the company 6-12 weeks later. As you can imagine, the burden this places on HR and Payroll is staggering. Dayforce has allowed us to reduce the amount of time our staff spends directly interacting with the system to hire or terminate an employee.,The configuration abilities of the program are superb. They have many built-in configurable policies that allow you to tailor your time tracking to state labor laws, union contracts, or whatever else you need. We recently had to add a feature to a subset of employees that pays time and a half for hours worked outside the set office hours for the location. They are constantly reviewing customer needs and adding to this functionality. The tax engine is also very robust. It automatically calculates state/local taxes based on the address of the worksite and the employee's primary residence, with very little interaction from us.,We're still exploring all that Dayforce is offering to us in this regard.,Paylocity Web Pay, ADP SmartCompliance and Paychex FlexCeridian Dayforce-you get out of it what you put in itDayforce is used organization-wide as our HRIS.,Paperless records and workforce management means no one can use the excuse "I submitted that weeks ago," because we can track all forms submitted in the system. Allowing different levels of access to each module instead of the same approval process for everything means faster processing of HR actions. Automating all functions and using reporting functions allows for quicker and more thorough follow up when needed.,Support-staff is often not fully trained in various modules. It can also take a long time to get resolutions to what seems like a fairly simple issue.,9,I feel that the capability is there, but our organization is not using Dayforce to its greatest potential.,When departments use the scheduling function, it definitely keeps us in compliance in many areas. Unfortunately, most departments don't use this function due to the last minute nature of our industry.,This was our goal - a fully integrated solution for all things HR and payroll. To that end, Dayforce has delivered. It's nice having timesheets and HR records all in one location.,,DPS Outlook OfficeCeridian Dayforce HCM with a Payroll FocusDayforce is used across our organization. It's our primary system for managing employee data, recruiting, scheduling, tracking time, completing required forms, and processing payroll.,Mobile app Recruiting Schedules,Messaging Shift-trading,9,Cost saving by eliminating other systems. Reduce paper use by implementing electronic on boarding forms.,Ceridian does a great job at supporting clients with remaining compliant. Often we receive notifications from Ceridian via email whenever there is a legislation change in an area where we operate a business. In addition, Ceridian forecasts changes in advance to ensure that any necessary adjustments to the system are addressed timely and the impact is fully understood.,Having real-time updates allows us to prepare proper forecasting reports so that we can be sure we're staying within budget in regards to labor costs. This helps us identify where we may be over or understaffed and also helps us be more strategic when considering succession plans and development of existing employees within the organization.,,HireRight, Smartsheet, ZoomHow to have Continuous Payroll Processing!We implemented Ceridian Dayforce July, 2017 as the HCM software for our entire company. We initially deployed Payroll, WFM, and Benefits. First quarter of 2018 we deployed Recruiting and Onboarding. First quarter of 2019, we plan to deploy Performance Management. These different modules have addressed an interfacing issue with our prior provider. We process payroll much more efficiently and faster. The Recruiting tool has helped address compliance with application tracking.,Continuous Payroll Processing - You have the option to run multiple pay cycles at one time. This assists with making last minute changes and recalculating to make sure the outcomes are correct New Hires have the ability to use the Pre-Start feature to handle all paperwork and elect benefits before Day one at the job Creating and modifying benefit plans is very easy.,We have not really had major issues with functionality. Ceridian Support Team has limited resources which could cause delay with any issues where you may need assistance.,9,Systems run more efficiently implementing other modules have incorporated additional efficiencies,One thing I found as a HUGE win was the PPACA feature in Ceridian Dayforce. This is the best tool because it does all of the tracking.,Upon implementation it took a minute to really grasp the full concept of one user experience, one employee record. It would be difficult to use a system without this feature.,,1500,5,Payroll Benefits Entitlement,Onboarding & Recruiting feature,Business analytics and Learning,10,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor,I don't think we would change our process at all.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was a big part of the implementation and was well-handled,Running the first pay took longer than anticipated Understanding Ceridian 'speak',7,Online training In-person training Self-taught,9,6,Some features are easy to pick up on your own, once you have a working knowledge of the system. I would not recommend self taught training only,8,Understand how your organization is structured and find out from leadership if they plan to change the structure prior to implementation,Some - we have done small customizations to the interface,Some - we have added small pieces of custom code,Not at this time,No,5,No,Right after implementation support was very responsive with all issues.,Self Service features,Not being able to delete a job/position when entered in error is cumbersome,Yes,8,Yes,Added features with modules Continued updates to HTML,Added features within modules,No,NoA 10 for Ceridian!We use Dayforce in all of our US locations and are currently implementing in Europe. We replaced multiple timekeeping systems with Dayforce along with our payroll and HR. This has made training from the executive level all the way to the line employee level much easier and consistent. The self-service is also a great addition and employees are able to view their records immediately without having to wait.,The integrated system between the time, payroll and HR functions makes so much more sense than having separate systems. The ability to view future payrolls and make future entries rather than waiting until immediately before processing is awesome. Ceridian is always looking at ways to improve and very open to customer suggestions.,The tax setup in HR is cumbersome and not user-friendly. Would love to be able to view only current active taxes in an employee's record with the option to view inactive. The Payroll feature (HTML version) runs very slow compared to the My Pay feature. Ceridian recently changed from a 3rd party vendor managing garnishment compliance to an in-house team and product. Although the reasoning was good the change over made a lot of problems in compliance. The calculations changed without the clients knowledge and the errors were discovered after a few months had passed. There should have been better communication concerning the change.,9,We have had a reduction in the use of paper due to the self service. Increased productivity in having the same product in all locations,The ability to have pay rules written in the system saves us time in having to verify the employee payments are correct. I love the feature enabling us to import bonuses that are FLSA eligible and allowing the system to calculate OT premium on the bonus rather than having to do manual calculations,How Dayforce WFM v6.44 has brought us into the 21st century!Dayforce WFM (one of the HCM modules) is being used across the whole organization. It is our primary workforce management (WFM) tool, encompassing time and attendance in all its aspects: hourly employees punch in using biometric clocks; salary non-exempt employees use the web-clock feature for recording their work time; all employees use the Time Away From Work (TAFW) feature to submit time off requests. It is also used by the HR/Payroll department for the processing of hours worked and paid time off. The Attendance Module has been especially helpful, as we have four different bargaining agreements, each with different rules and policies regarding attendance, absenteeism, and the various types of available premium pay. Not only have we been able to configure individual pay policies to reflect these requirements, but it has also enabled us to eliminate the use of old-fashioned paper calendars and spreadsheets for calculating available time off and the no-fault points system. It has increased the accuracy of our records as well as productivity of our HR representatives, leaving them with more time to better support their plant. We also went through a complete RFP process last year, and we will be moving the rest of our payroll/HR/benefits to the Dayforce platform in 2019. By far, it had the most functionality and best configurability for a reasonable price.,The Time Off Request system is fantastic! It has done away with all the old paper submission forms and employee calendars. It also streamlines the process. It is submitted, reviewed, approved all in the system and then automatically updates the employees' timesheets and attendance calendars. The Attendance Module has reduced the amount of additional manual record keeping such as spreadsheets, and also given the supervisors a tool to see the accumulation of points in real-time, versus waiting for a weekly or monthly report to be completed and distributed. We have six different payrolls, each with varying pay period end dates and pay frequencies. Dayforce is able to handle the variety without any issues. I attended the new Dayforce FIT session for WFM at this year's Insights conference. It has greatly increased my ability to make configuration changes to my product without having to open as many support tickets as in the past, which also translates into big savings. I attended a different Dayforce FIT session at Insights 2019 for Payroll. It was a great in-depth overview of how the payroll module works, and greatly enhanced our readiness for implementation of the payroll module later this year.,I would love it if Dayforce included an FMLA module. So much of the information needed for accurate tracking already exists right in the system. We are left with the decision to either continue our in-house manual process or to find a stand-alone software to assist us with the cumbersome administration. The TAFW module does not yet provide the ability to limit security access of non-exempt employees to be able to run reports for their own information. We are a union work environment, and as such have employees with multiple rates of pay for different jobs. Currently, premium pay such as "Team Lead" can only be calculated by the system when they work their primary job assignment. It does not automatically get picked up and included on the timesheet when the employee works an alternate job.,10,The overall record-keeping time has been reduced by 50%. And in locations that are now fully automated, using both the Attendance and TAFW modules for both hourly and salary employees, the overall record-keeping time has decreased by 66%. The ability to create the custom reports that are used every week, and save us countless hours of manual work.,Ceridian Dayforce has provided us the reporting tools necessary to audit and clean-up our database. In conjunction with Having the ability to further configure our pay policies in Dayforce, manual payroll entries have been reduced by 67% and off-cycle paychecks to correct payroll errors has been reduced by 50%. Additionally, it provided us the ability to fully automate payment of our separate vacation and alternate job rates, reducing the administration time by 100%. In return, this has greatly reduced the overall rate of grievances filed by union employees.,We currently only have the WFM module, so do not have the hands-on knowledge regarding the ease of use across all modules. We will be implementing Dayforce's full core-package later this year (2019).,ADP TotalSource, Kronos Workforce Central, AsureForce Time & Labor Management, Ascentis Payroll and Vista,EmpowerID,500,1,Attendance Module for tracking attendance and no-fault points system The ability to configure complicated pay policies and practices The real-time access to employee data for line management,We customized one of the rate fields to house the hourly employees' vacation rates (different from their base rate) The ability to develop and use customized rotation schedules, even if only applied to one employee,I am currently in the process of finding a way to use the application for FMLA tracking,9,Yes,Price Product Features Vendor Reputation Existing Relationship with the Vendor,I am not sure we would change anything. We made sure to approach the RFP process in a professional way - to ensure we weren't swayed by the many different "bells and whistles" that come with much of the vendor platforms out there. We asked to see the guts - each vendor had to prove their platform would be able to handle our very complex payroll. Knowing what we need and make sure a vendor could deliver on their promises seems the best way to go no matter what.,No,8,Yes,Generally, I save all tickets that were not able to be resolved in a separate folder. Once a year, I go through them and ask for updated feedback as to the platform's ability to handle that particular item. Many times, just over the course of one year, something that was not yet available a year ago can now be configured. They truly listen to their customers, and ask for their feedback and ideas concerning the platform.,Adding additional pay; ie. paid time off, retro pay, bonuses, etc. Once set up, Shift Rotations automatically populate the timesheets for all employees assigned to a Shift Rotation. Changes are very simple for the supervisor to make right in the application in Schedules. If company policy allows, shift trading is also an available feature which is easy for the employees to learn to use. The TAFW feature cuts the paper process requesting/approving/recording paid and unpaid time off into one easy step.,It takes some time to learn how to correctly configure the software on your own, but classes are available and have proven to be a very valuable resource. Well worth the time and effort. We still have a couple of items that the system is not able to handle (on Timesheets) - so we still have manual work-arounds for them. (i.e. when an employee works an alternate job on a paid holiday).,Yes,9,9,9,9,Ceridian develops and implements platform updates/new features twice a year. We have been using Dayforce WFM for 5 years, and will be moving our payroll and Core HR and Benefits to Dayforce in the next few months. It never ceases to amaze me at the progress Dayforce has made in just 5 years - how the ability to configure the software just how we need it (and to keep up with union bargaining agreement changes) continues to increase exponentially year after year. Inevitably, if I have something that can't yet be done and goes to R&D, it becomes a standard feature within 1-2 years.,10,10,Since we are already a Dayforce WFM customer, we don't need the standard WFM items that are included in the SOW. In exchange for the 'hours' that covers by the Ceridian implementation team, we were able to negotiate including a few projects that we had shelved last year due to billable cost. They will now be included as part of next year's implementation. Also, their standard for bringing over history for current customers was only 3 years - we were able to negotiate 7 years' worth of history that will be brought over from our legacy product.,I don't think there are any secrets. I found our account representative to be forthright with us during the entire evaluation/sales period. No hidden agendas. No hidden costs. My best advice is to know what you need, why you need it, and be willing to think outside the box.Ceridian DayforceWe currently use Ceridian Dayforce to process our bi-weekly payroll. It is also used to store employee information such as promotions, demotions, transfers, new hires, terminations, home address, mailing address, phone number, emergency contact information, etc. We recently launched the employee self-service option which enables employees to update their own personal information, update direct deposit accounts, and print their own pay statements. Previously, all of these changes had to be done through paper forms. By turning on the self-service feature it has eliminated a lot of paperwork and filing. Everything is not accessible online.,FLSA calculation Employee self-service,Depending on where you are trying to navigate/task you are trying to accomplish you may need to use two different internet browsers. In most cases, you can use google chrome, but in some, you must use internet explorer.,9,Compliance with FLSA calculations. Decreased the amount of time it takes to process payroll.,Garnishments are much easier to work with. The system knows how much it can take of disposable pay, especially when an employee has more than one. This helps eliminate the need for manual calculations.,Unfortunately, we are still using multiple systems. We recently went live with Dayforce at the start of 2019. In time we hope to reduce the number of systems we are using to just 1: Dayforce. At that time I feel the decision-making process will be much more streamlined because we won't have to check multiple systems for information.,Novatime and ADP Workforce Now,Novatime, SAP NetWeaver Application ServerGreat for Large BusinessWe are using Dayforce across the organization. We have implemented WFM, Payroll, Benefits, Reporting, Document Management and Dashboards. We have purchased Performance but have not started implementation with that module yet. We are retail and were previously using spreadsheets to write schedules with no comparison to the timeclock. The WFM module has completely changed the way our associates interact with their time.,WFM module has the potential to significantly decrease overtime if used properly by managers. Ability to see labor in real time. Accessibility to associate information across the organization has been greatly enhanced and allows for greater security.,Customer Support is lacking. Unless the issue is stopping payroll, your case may not get responded to for days or weeks. Also, customer support appears to be focused on a work around instead of finding the root of the problem. Very disappointing. Amount of time required of internal resources for implementation is exponentially more than the timeline provided by Dayforce. Implementation is a full time job for 2 people in the organization, one for payroll/benefits and the other for everything else. Sales team promises things that are not possible or require additional charges. Some implementation consultants are happy with "good enough". We want full functionality and felt like we needed to accept less than promised. We continued to push and received the end result we paid for but felt we should not need to push to get full functionality.,8,The time to process weekly payroll has decreased from a full week to 1 1/2 days. Greatly decreased overtime for managers that are using the Plan tools to manage labor. Completing onboarding forms prior to orientation has significantly decreased the time needed during orientation.,Automating compliance with labor laws, state taxes, OT policies, Wage and Hour laws, healthcare eligibility, etc has greatly improved with Ceridian Dayforce. There is no functionality to manage FMLA without internal tracking or paying a third party vendor. Adding this feature would be a huge win for our organization and Dayforce.Ceridian Dayforce Rocks!!!We use Ceridian as our only HR/Payroll Software. All employees and supervisors use Dayforce for Scheduling, Time and Attendance and Recruiting and Onboarding. We love the single software platform and are looking forward to expanding our features.,Excellent Support Team User-Friendly Platforms Fabulous Implementation Teams,Some features still rely on Silverlight Reporting could be expanded Need all features/fields to be able to be customized for company needs,8,We saw serious cost saving when we first converted to electronic schedules across our organization. Over/under scheduling to budget was a very big problem. We have no more paper forms, everything in Payroll/HR is electronic and retrievable immediately if needed.,All enrollments are electronic from Benefit to tax filings. It allows up to stay in compliance without keeping track of paper. The electronic scheduling allows for better tracking of schedules to budgets and where the Overtime is happening in live time. The auditing feature in Timesheets allows us to follow where changes are being made and managers can see payroll information in up to the minute calculations.,We have many shared employees across 33 centers. It allows us to effectively schedule, track and adjust these staff as they move from place to place all while keeping a close eye on potential overtime in our association. Reports can be run that allow a manager to see if an employee that is shared is going to end up being over in hours if they use them to fill a shift and can make better more informed decisions about who to schedule where and when.,,Daxko OperationsGreat toolCeridian is being used across the company in our retail locations, distribution centers, and corporate offices. It solves the problem of manual schedules and timesheets in corporate and DCs and solves for the various different solutions that we were using by being one platform.,Innovative - always seeking to improve and get user feedback Support - provides support as needed for any issues or questions,Communication - It can be lacking, especially from the implementation team. Role based functionality - puts some limits on what can be done.,9,Increased compliance Self-service is a big win for employees Mobile is a big solution for getting schedules particularly for PTE’s Reduced use of paper,Helps control scheduling compliance and meal breaks,Has made it much easier especially for our field district managers to see employee information that they would have to reach out to HR for,ADP Enterprise eTIMEDayforce HR reviewWe are using Ceridian Dayforce company-wide. We just started using Dayforce for our UK payroll. We are using the systems of time and attendance, benefits, payroll, recruiting, soon onboarding, hr, reporting, as well as many more areas.,The reporting tool is great. I am able to run and create reports and pull data in all areas of the system. Setting up benefit plans is very user-friendly. Also when creating the benefits forms it is very easy and user-friendly.,The customer support needs more improvement. When I put tickets in it takes a long time to get someone assigned.,8,Employees are very happy with self service,BY allowing employees to use self-service for their tax and direct deposit forms it helps us make fewer data entry errors.,Makes streamlining easy,Workday Human Capital Management and ADP GlobalView HCM,BrainsharkDayforce is easy to use!We are currently using Dayforce for payroll and HRIS capabilities. In the future as we grow we may consider using the compensation module. It is being used by payroll administrators and end users for self service portals. The biggest issue that it addresses is the reporting capabilities that we lacked in previous systems. I am able to report accurately and promptly for upper management.,The ability to customize reports based on your needs. Payroll auditing and reconciliation. Housing information in as a true source in one spot,The "forgot password" function. It says it will send an email but it's only if you have set up emails. It would be nice to have that setup initially.,10,Increased cost savings as we are able to accurately report to management on various items.,Tax withholdings are done on time. We are able to provide external auditors with the information that they are requesting at the tip of our fingertips.,We currently use the system for HRIS management and payroll. No other use.,ADP ResourceNew to Dayforce and Loving it!We are using Dayforce as our overall HCM platform including payroll, benefits, performance management, and recruiting. As new clients, the sales and implementation process was smooth. I was also lucky enough to attend Insights 2018 in Las Vegas which was a fantastic experience. It really spoke to the culture and overall exceptional organization that Ceridian is.,Customer Service. Technology. Ease of use.,I am excited to see the decision-making tool in the benefits portal.,10,Cost savings through productivity due to ease of use for employees and managers.,Compliance with employee mobile punching and GPS tracking.,Ease of reporting since all info is in one database.,ADP Enterprise eTIME,ADP Workforce Now, ADP Enterprise eTIMEDayforce Survey SatisfactionDayforce is being utilized by our company mainly for Human Resources for all aspects of Payroll Processing (functionality includes appropriate federal, state, and local tax withholdings, direct deposit information, performing pay calculations, Reporting, W-2's. etc.), Benefits, Recruiting and Onboarding. Dayforce addresses business issues our company experienced in that: 1) pay calculations are performed very quickly when updates are made to employee data. 2) from a payroll perspective, appropriate local taxes are applied to the employee timely and accurately based on location and/or residence. 3) easy access for generating reports from past and present 4) provides the capability to easily make future dated entries via "Quick Entry" for future payrolls if necessary. 5) provides an immediate explanation of warnings and errors. 6) provided functionality for our company to reflect 2 different pay period dates for our Salaried Non-Exempt and Salaried Exempt groups.,Performs quick and accurate pay calculations for employees pay based on real time. Provides an easy method of reactivating terminated employees as necessary when they need to be included for pay after termination. Allows you to easily generate "Pre" and "Post: payroll audit reports. Provides an easy view of payroll warnings and errors as you go.,Even though having pay groups separated into like groups is a plus; it also becomes very cumbersome when all employees are included on a spreadsheet you may receive and now the employees have to be separated into like groups before you can successfully utilize the import feature. Would like to be able to enter dollars OR hours if necessary on a "Regular" pay code without having the system convert the flat amount into a rate and hours.,9,Not implemented for a full year, so at this time all of the Return on Investment nor cost savings has been fully realized.,Dayforce has functionality which activates state and local tax withholdings at the time of hire or when an employee moves based on the employees' work and/or home location. Dayforce also provides functionality that allows the employer to build pay rules based on the state regulations as it relates to overtime requirements for each particular state.,I do not utilize nor a I impacted by this feature.,Getting more value from employees than having them key transactionsDayforce supports the time tracking, payroll, and benefits processing of our HR shared service center supporting 9,000+ employees. Dayforce was deployed to evolve the tools that shape the employee experience, reduce the transactional processing and meet United States compliance requirements.,The benefits administration within Dayforce has significantly reduced the transactional keying within our organization. The transactional time savings alone allowed us to reallocate .5 FTE to developing and deploying benefit educational material and training sessions for our employees. This time savings accounts for the manual entry of Health Savings Account changes, Life Events, and 401k election changes. The calculating of gross to net pay within the application and not utilizing a mainframe is a transformational change, eliminating the wait time that existed with a mainframe. Calculating payroll for a group of 1,200 employees went from 25-40 minutes on a mainframe down to 2-3 minutes in Dayforce. The attendance calendar that contains a snapshot of an employees time away from work for an entire year and the ability to drill down to see the hours is a great benefit to managers to see trends in time away throughout the year. The flexibility of the entitlement (PTO, Vacation, Sick, Volunteer Time Off, etc).,Would like to see a customizable home page, so when an employee logs in, a company message could be displayed along with quick links or documents that are frequently used. Access for an employee to report on their own personal information such as the time they have taken over a period of time or the ability to reporting on their compensation or job changes over the course of their employment. Would like to see the ability for employees to submit personal changes through forms available in the mobile app.,8,Saved approximately 1,000 hours of benefits transaction keying strictly related to live events, health savings account changes and 401k election changes.

Ceridian Dayforce HCM Review: "Dayforce HCM for Service Firms"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

We use Dayforce HCM to manage our payroll, time away from work, performance management and recruitment - in other words for almost every aspect of managing human resources. It has addressed issues with information sharing between management teams, engagement with employees, and has helped save time on HR processes.
  • Allows employees to see current balances for vacation time, and allows them to administer vacation requests directly within Dayforce HCM without the need of paper forms and processes.
  • Reporting on trends, allowing HR to gather data for use in forecasting trends in attendance, recruitment, salaries, etc., all the data is housed in one program and easily accessible.
  • The use of pay grids and categories for jobs allows ease of access to information for budgeting and for working with industry surveys.
  • Support on time sensitive issues such as resolving a payroll question can sometimes be slower than preferred.
  • While it accommodates salaried employees, there could be some improvements on the functionality of the timesheets and time recording for those groups who do not technically punch a time card.
Obviously Dayforce HCM would work well in a manufacturing or retail setting - scheduling is outstanding in those scenarios! However, even in a professional services organization, where most staff are salaried or on a standard work shift, this product works well and is very easily customized to meet the needs of a smaller scale organization.
We have a significant salary base and a few hourly workers. We have easily been able to create rules to run the Alberta Labour Standards for calculating overtime and statutory holiday pay. Once the rules are set - review of the pay is easily done.

Here at Orvis all of our departments use Ceridian Dayforce to clock in and out of shifts as well as in and out of breaks and lunch. Most of the employees use it for keeping up with their schedules as well as requesting time off. Ceridian Dayforce also allows us to transfer between departments so management can see when each employee was in which department.
  • Ceridian Dayforce does well at allowing us to clock in.
  • Ceridian Dayforce Is great for keeping up with your schedule and requesting time off.
  • Ceridian Dayforce is also great for tracking what employees are working in which department.
  • once you have finished typing in your employee number it automatically enters without confirmation so it's easy to clock someone else in or out if you press a wrong number.
  • On occasion, punches don't seem to register but this is rare but ongoing.
  • Ceridian Dayforce will freeze up occasionally but closing it and reopening it works to fix that.
Ceridian Dayforce is only used for scheduling, clocking in and out, tracking peoples on the clock times and locations. It also keeps track of your previous time worked so you can look back to see when you worked previously. It really has no function beyond the schedule and the time clock functions.
As an employee, I am not in charge of compliance so I do not know what features Ceridian Dayforce has to enable compliance. It tracks all employees time so management can at a glance see that employees are working hours within compliance but I do not know more than that.

We use this across the whole organization. It controls time and attendance, payroll, benefits, performance reviews, onboarding paperwork, and i9 details. It's the best solution for a paperless work environment. It allows an employee's complete history record to be visible without pulling a file.
  • Form data: it allows you to use system or custom made forms. Helps allow managers at store level submit paperless request.
  • Workflows: tied to a form, each workflow is custom with routing and notifications or conditions to ensure that what is submitted routes properly.
  • Onboarding: allows for quick visibility to where progress is and who has completed.
  • Forms to be mobile friendly
  • Guided processes that can be edited after being published.
  • Performance management to allow edits within qualifiers after posted.
The solution to better process and on-time viability to employee data is great in this system. Could it have some areas improved, yes! And they are always updating to improve processes. Coming from where all data was entered manually to using Dayforce now. So much time saved and fewer data errors.

Ceridian Dayforce HCM Review: "Dayforce from a Multi-state and International Perspective"

Score 8 out of 10

We use Dayforce for timekeeping, sick/vacation entitlement tracking, HR records, payroll, labor law compliance, and document management. In our US and Canada operations, we use Dayforce exclusively for our payroll processing, and we're working toward adding the UK and Australia to the list of our countries that process payroll through Dayforce. We currently use timekeeping, entitlement tracking, and HR records for all employees company-wide. We love the single platform approach since it nearly eliminates the need for dual entry we have to do between our HR/Payroll departments.
  • Single platform for HR and Payroll. When one thing changes, it cascades through the whole system, keeping us on track and reducing the likelihood of data entry errors.
  • Time Calculation flexibility. If there is something that can't be configured within the pay configuration, I've yet to discover it. Need your employees to get OT for hours after a certain time? Done. Need shift rates applied? Done. Need meal penalties assessed for shifts above a certain length (for you CA employers)? Done. I could go on and on- but the point is that the system can work for you, no matter your needs.
  • Real-time payroll calculations. Need to check if a garnishment is going to be correctly applied to an employee's pay? Need to see what impact a commission payment will have on employee taxes? Need to check to see what your to-date payroll liability for the pay period is? Any of these and many more are at your fingertips in just a few minutes with the ability to recalculate the pay file at any time during the pay cycle. You no longer have to wonder what your payroll will look like when processing day comes along- you can see it all along.
  • Configurability. Dayforce is still getting up to speed on how to manage the configuration abilities of the product. You can do pretty much anything, but this provides an issue when trying to get support from them - no one is an expert on your system since literally, no two clients have the same configuration.
  • Reporting. While constantly improving, the reporting feature is complicated to use for someone who needs specific information. You practically have to be a programmer (and some options require SQL knowledge to implement) in order to get the report you want. Also, the auto-formatting makes it tricky to manipulate the data after the report is run, if you are trying to use Excel or CSV to extract data points for complex analytics. Fortunately, you can turn this off - you just have to remember to update the settings before processing the request for the report.
  • Workflows. We've run into issues with certain things, like time off requests, being stuck in limbo when management changes. If the request was originally submitted to one manager, and then that manager makes a move or leaves the company, the new manager cannot view the request, so the SysAdmin has to intervene.
Dayforce is great if you have a varied workforce that requires complicated configuration, like multi-state jurisdictions with different labor laws applicable to each location. Just be prepared to designate an individual at your company to become a configuration expert in case anything needs updating.

Dayforce is less great if you use only one aspect of the program. As a whole, when you buy the whole enchilada and do all your HCM through Dayforce, the integration makes the minor annoyances worth it. If you are only looking to replace HR data, only time tracking, or only payroll processing, this is probably not the system for you. I'd go all or nothing.
The configuration abilities of the program are superb. They have many built-in configurable policies that allow you to tailor your time tracking to state labor laws, union contracts, or whatever else you need. We recently had to add a feature to a subset of employees that pays time and a half for hours worked outside the set office hours for the location. They are constantly reviewing customer needs and adding to this functionality.

The tax engine is also very robust. It automatically calculates state/local taxes based on the address of the worksite and the employee's primary residence, with very little interaction from us.

Dayforce is used organization-wide as our HRIS.
  • Paperless records and workforce management means no one can use the excuse "I submitted that weeks ago," because we can track all forms submitted in the system.
  • Allowing different levels of access to each module instead of the same approval process for everything means faster processing of HR actions.
  • Automating all functions and using reporting functions allows for quicker and more thorough follow up when needed.
  • Support-staff is often not fully trained in various modules. It can also take a long time to get resolutions to what seems like a fairly simple issue.
Great for larger organizations due to the price, or organizations with a one person HR team where this software can take the place of an additional HR staffer.
When departments use the scheduling function, it definitely keeps us in compliance in many areas. Unfortunately, most departments don't use this function due to the last minute nature of our industry.

Dayforce is used across our organization. It's our primary system for managing employee data, recruiting, scheduling, tracking time, completing required forms, and processing payroll.
  • Mobile app
  • Recruiting
  • Schedules
  • Messaging
  • Shift-trading
We implemented Dayforce in 2014 and have slowly been building our system out to have a one-stop shop for payroll, scheduling, timekeeping, onboarding, recruiting, and even team collaboration all in one place! So far, so good, and user adoption across our organization has improved, given Dayforce's user-friendly design.
Ceridian does a great job at supporting clients with remaining compliant. Often we receive notifications from Ceridian via email whenever there is a legislation change in an area where we operate a business. In addition, Ceridian forecasts changes in advance to ensure that any necessary adjustments to the system are addressed timely and the impact is fully understood.

Ceridian Dayforce HCM Review: "How to have Continuous Payroll Processing!"

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

We implemented Ceridian Dayforce July, 2017 as the HCM software for our entire company. We initially deployed Payroll, WFM, and Benefits. First quarter of 2018 we deployed Recruiting and Onboarding. First quarter of 2019, we plan to deploy Performance Management.

These different modules have addressed an interfacing issue with our prior provider. We process payroll much more efficiently and faster. The Recruiting tool has helped address compliance with application tracking.
  • Continuous Payroll Processing - You have the option to run multiple pay cycles at one time. This assists with making last minute changes and recalculating to make sure the outcomes are correct
  • New Hires have the ability to use the Pre-Start feature to handle all paperwork and elect benefits before Day one at the job
  • Creating and modifying benefit plans is very easy.
  • We have not really had major issues with functionality.
  • Ceridian Support Team has limited resources which could cause delay with any issues where you may need assistance.
We have not had an instance where Ceridian wasn't well suited for our needs. They are leader when it comes to HCM platforms.
One thing I found as a HUGE win was the PPACA feature in Ceridian Dayforce. This is the best tool because it does all of the tracking.

We use Dayforce in all of our US locations and are currently implementing in Europe. We replaced multiple timekeeping systems with Dayforce along with our payroll and HR. This has made training from the executive level all the way to the line employee level much easier and consistent. The self-service is also a great addition and employees are able to view their records immediately without having to wait.
  • The integrated system between the time, payroll and HR functions makes so much more sense than having separate systems.
  • The ability to view future payrolls and make future entries rather than waiting until immediately before processing is awesome.
  • Ceridian is always looking at ways to improve and very open to customer suggestions.
  • The tax setup in HR is cumbersome and not user-friendly. Would love to be able to view only current active taxes in an employee's record with the option to view inactive.
  • The Payroll feature (HTML version) runs very slow compared to the My Pay feature.
  • Ceridian recently changed from a 3rd party vendor managing garnishment compliance to an in-house team and product. Although the reasoning was good the change over made a lot of problems in compliance. The calculations changed without the clients knowledge and the errors were discovered after a few months had passed. There should have been better communication concerning the change.

Everything can be seen in real time and depending on the level of access employees can see their punches and what has been updated by the manager. This gives them the opportunity to review their hours and pay prior to the payroll processing. There are reports that admins can use to balance timesheet to payroll and with the real time updates can calculate a payroll as often as needed to confirm accurate payments.


The ability to have pay rules written in the system saves us time in having to verify the employee payments are correct. I love the feature enabling us to import bonuses that are FLSA eligible and allowing the system to calculate OT premium on the bonus rather than having to do manual calculations

Ceridian Dayforce HCM Review: "How Dayforce WFM v6.44 has brought us into the 21st century!"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source
Dayforce WFM (one of the HCM modules) is being used across the whole organization. It is our primary workforce management (WFM) tool, encompassing time and attendance in all its aspects: hourly employees punch in using biometric clocks; salary non-exempt employees use the web-clock feature for recording their work time; all employees use the Time Away From Work (TAFW) feature to submit time off requests. It is also used by the HR/Payroll department for the processing of hours worked and paid time off. The Attendance Module has been especially helpful, as we have four different bargaining agreements, each with different rules and policies regarding attendance, absenteeism, and the various types of available premium pay. Not only have we been able to configure individual pay policies to reflect these requirements, but it has also enabled us to eliminate the use of old-fashioned paper calendars and spreadsheets for calculating available time off and the no-fault points system. It has increased the accuracy of our records as well as productivity of our HR representatives, leaving them with more time to better support their plant.

We also went through a complete RFP process last year, and we will be moving the rest of our payroll/HR/benefits to the Dayforce platform in 2019. By far, it had the most functionality and best configurability for a reasonable price.
  • The Time Off Request system is fantastic! It has done away with all the old paper submission forms and employee calendars. It also streamlines the process. It is submitted, reviewed, approved all in the system and then automatically updates the employees' timesheets and attendance calendars.
  • The Attendance Module has reduced the amount of additional manual record keeping such as spreadsheets, and also given the supervisors a tool to see the accumulation of points in real-time, versus waiting for a weekly or monthly report to be completed and distributed.
  • We have six different payrolls, each with varying pay period end dates and pay frequencies. Dayforce is able to handle the variety without any issues.
  • I attended the new Dayforce FIT session for WFM at this year's Insights conference. It has greatly increased my ability to make configuration changes to my product without having to open as many support tickets as in the past, which also translates into big savings.
  • I attended a different Dayforce FIT session at Insights 2019 for Payroll. It was a great in-depth overview of how the payroll module works, and greatly enhanced our readiness for implementation of the payroll module later this year.
  • I would love it if Dayforce included an FMLA module. So much of the information needed for accurate tracking already exists right in the system. We are left with the decision to either continue our in-house manual process or to find a stand-alone software to assist us with the cumbersome administration.
  • The TAFW module does not yet provide the ability to limit security access of non-exempt employees to be able to run reports for their own information.
  • We are a union work environment, and as such have employees with multiple rates of pay for different jobs. Currently, premium pay such as "Team Lead" can only be calculated by the system when they work their primary job assignment. It does not automatically get picked up and included on the timesheet when the employee works an alternate job.
I would not recommend Ceridian Dayforce to small business or to anyone that does not have a real payroll professional on their HR team. While not the most user-friendly application available, it is definitely the most powerful and the most well equipped to handle more complicated payroll situations such as unions, rotating shifts, etc. Prospective customers should know exactly what they need to get out of their payroll system (such as history and reporting), as well as knowing all the payroll policies and practices that are unique to their industry and/or company. For example, one of our unions has a requirement that if an employee comes in early and works before their scheduled shift they should be paid overtime. We have a separate policy that says anything over 8 hours in a work day should be overtime. In this example, the hours worked before the scheduled shift (and any accompanying premium pay or shift differential) is paid at overtime - and the scheduled shift (which is being worked after already working 8 hours) is paid at straight time. This happens a lot. If the system could not handle this calculation, we would not have gone with the Ceridian Dayforce product.

Ceridian Dayforce has provided us the reporting tools necessary to audit
and clean-up our database. In conjunction with
Having the ability to further
configure our pay policies in Dayforce, manual payroll entries have
been reduced by 67% and off-cycle paychecks to correct payroll errors has been reduced by 50%. Additionally, it provided us the ability to
fully automate payment of our separate vacation and
alternate job rates, reducing the
administration time by 100%. In return, this has greatly reduced the overall rate of grievances filed by union employees.

We currently use Ceridian Dayforce to process our bi-weekly payroll. It is also used to store employee information such as promotions, demotions, transfers, new hires, terminations, home address, mailing address, phone number, emergency contact information, etc. We recently launched the employee self-service option which enables employees to update their own personal information, update direct deposit accounts, and print their own pay statements. Previously, all of these changes had to be done through paper forms. By turning on the self-service feature it has eliminated a lot of paperwork and filing. Everything is not accessible online.
  • FLSA calculation
  • Employee self-service
  • Depending on where you are trying to navigate/task you are trying to accomplish you may need to use two different internet browsers. In most cases, you can use google chrome, but in some, you must use internet explorer.
Ceridian has been one of the few HCM companies that have proven they can do the FLSA calculation. This is very important to us since we have various shifts that have different premiums, etc. We look forward to adding more capabilities in the future. We are hoping to add recruiting, onboarding and timekeeping. I am not aware of a scenario where Dayforce is less appropriate. It has many capabilities.
Garnishments are much easier to work with. The system knows how much it can take of disposable pay, especially when an employee has more than one. This helps eliminate the need for manual calculations.

Ceridian Dayforce HCM Review: "Great for Large Business"

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

We are using Dayforce across the organization. We have implemented WFM, Payroll, Benefits, Reporting, Document Management and Dashboards. We have purchased Performance but have not started implementation with that module yet. We are retail and were previously using spreadsheets to write schedules with no comparison to the timeclock. The WFM module has completely changed the way our associates interact with their time.
  • WFM module has the potential to significantly decrease overtime if used properly by managers.
  • Ability to see labor in real time.
  • Accessibility to associate information across the organization has been greatly enhanced and allows for greater security.
  • Customer Support is lacking. Unless the issue is stopping payroll, your case may not get responded to for days or weeks. Also, customer support appears to be focused on a work around instead of finding the root of the problem. Very disappointing.
  • Amount of time required of internal resources for implementation is exponentially more than the timeline provided by Dayforce. Implementation is a full time job for 2 people in the organization, one for payroll/benefits and the other for everything else. Sales team promises things that are not possible or require additional charges.
  • Some implementation consultants are happy with "good enough". We want full functionality and felt like we needed to accept less than promised. We continued to push and received the end result we paid for but felt we should not need to push to get full functionality.
Dayforce is more appropriate for large organizations. The amount of time needed for implementation is 4 to 5 times what is stated in the implementation plan. There are a large amount of canned reports which are great. If the need arises to create a custom report, the reporting module is not user-friendly. Uploading custom forms is complicated and requires someone who knows how to write XML code in order for it to work properly.
Automating compliance with labor laws, state taxes, OT policies, Wage and Hour laws, healthcare eligibility, etc has greatly improved with Ceridian Dayforce. There is no functionality to manage FMLA without internal tracking or paying a third party vendor. Adding this feature would be a huge win for our organization and Dayforce.

  • Reporting could be expanded
  • Need all features/fields to be able to be customized for company needs
Ceridian is fabulous at the Payroll/WFM and HR level. Recruiting and Onboarding being a newer feature of theirs is still working out the kinks. But their support is great and I never have issues getting any help needed. The ease of use in payroll took processing for 2800 employees from a whole week to just 2.5 days.
All enrollments are electronic from Benefit to tax filings. It allows up to stay in compliance without keeping track of paper. The electronic scheduling allows for better tracking of schedules to budgets and where the Overtime is happening in live time. The auditing feature in Timesheets allows us to follow where changes are being made and managers can see payroll information in up to the minute calculations.

Ceridian is being used across the company in our retail locations, distribution centers, and corporate offices. It solves the problem of manual schedules and timesheets in corporate and DCs and solves for the various different solutions that we were using by being one platform.
  • Innovative - always seeking to improve and get user feedback
  • Support - provides support as needed for any issues or questions
  • Communication - It can be lacking, especially from the implementation team.
  • Role based functionality - puts some limits on what can be done.
Well suited for scheduling and timesheets.
Helps control scheduling compliance and meal breaks

We are using Ceridian Dayforce company-wide. We just started using Dayforce for our UK payroll. We are using the systems of time and attendance, benefits, payroll, recruiting, soon onboarding, hr, reporting, as well as many more areas.
  • The reporting tool is great. I am able to run and create reports and pull data in all areas of the system.
  • Setting up benefit plans is very user-friendly. Also when creating the benefits forms it is very easy and user-friendly.
  • The customer support needs more improvement. When I put tickets in it takes a long time to get someone assigned.
The benefits set up is great
BY allowing employees to use self-service for their tax and direct deposit forms it helps us make fewer data entry errors.

We are currently using Dayforce for payroll and HRIS capabilities. In the future as we grow we may consider using the compensation module. It is being used by payroll administrators and end users for self service portals.

The biggest issue that it addresses is the reporting capabilities that we lacked in previous systems. I am able to report accurately and promptly for upper management.
  • The ability to customize reports based on your needs.
  • Payroll auditing and reconciliation.
  • Housing information in as a true source in one spot
  • The "forgot password" function. It says it will send an email but it's only if you have set up emails. It would be nice to have that setup initially.
It does an excellent job calculating payroll. The functionality to work in future pay periods makes it easy to be prepared for time off leaves.
Tax withholdings are done on time. We are able to provide external auditors with the information that they are requesting at the tip of our fingertips.

We are using Dayforce as our overall HCM platform including payroll, benefits, performance management, and recruiting. As new clients, the sales and implementation process was smooth. I was also lucky enough to attend Insights 2018 in Las Vegas which was a fantastic experience. It really spoke to the culture and overall exceptional organization that Ceridian is.
  • Customer Service.
  • Technology.
  • Ease of use.
  • I am excited to see the decision-making tool in the benefits portal.
Great company to be partnered with!
Compliance with employee mobile punching and GPS tracking.

Dayforce is being utilized by our company mainly for Human Resources for all aspects of Payroll Processing (functionality includes appropriate federal, state, and local tax withholdings, direct deposit information, performing pay calculations, Reporting, W-2's. etc.), Benefits, Recruiting and Onboarding.

Dayforce addresses business issues our company experienced in that: 1) pay calculations are performed very quickly when updates are made to employee data. 2) from a payroll perspective, appropriate local taxes are applied to the employee timely and accurately based on location and/or residence. 3) easy access for generating reports from past and present 4) provides the capability to easily make future dated entries via "Quick Entry" for future payrolls if necessary. 5) provides an immediate explanation of warnings and errors. 6) provided functionality for our company to reflect 2 different pay period dates for our Salaried Non-Exempt and Salaried Exempt groups.
  • Performs quick and accurate pay calculations for employees pay based on real time.
  • Provides an easy method of reactivating terminated employees as necessary when they need to be included for pay after termination.
  • Allows you to easily generate "Pre" and "Post: payroll audit reports.
  • Provides an easy view of payroll warnings and errors as you go.
  • Even though having pay groups separated into like groups is a plus; it also becomes very cumbersome when all employees are included on a spreadsheet you may receive and now the employees have to be separated into like groups before you can successfully utilize the import feature.
  • Would like to be able to enter dollars OR hours if necessary on a "Regular" pay code without having the system convert the flat amount into a rate and hours.
Dayforce is well suited as it relates to W-2 processing; at any given time employers can review employee's W-2's for accuracy. Dayforce allows the functionality to easily process Off-Cycle adjustments as necessary.

Dayforce provides functionality for the user to utilize various "Check Templates" necessary when needing to process various types of pay.
Dayforce has functionality which activates state and local tax withholdings at the time of hire or when an employee moves based on the employees' work and/or home location. Dayforce also provides functionality that allows the employer to build pay rules based on the state regulations as it relates to overtime requirements for each particular state.

Ceridian Dayforce HCM Review: "Getting more value from employees than having them key transactions"

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source
Dayforce supports the time tracking, payroll, and benefits processing of our HR shared service center supporting 9,000+ employees. Dayforce was deployed to evolve the tools that shape the employee experience, reduce the transactional processing and meet United States compliance requirements.
  • The benefits administration within Dayforce has significantly reduced the transactional keying within our organization. The transactional time savings alone allowed us to reallocate .5 FTE to developing and deploying benefit educational material and training sessions for our employees. This time savings accounts for the manual entry of Health Savings Account changes, Life Events, and 401k election changes.
  • The calculating of gross to net pay within the application and not utilizing a mainframe is a transformational change, eliminating the wait time that existed with a mainframe. Calculating payroll for a group of 1,200 employees went from 25-40 minutes on a mainframe down to 2-3 minutes in Dayforce.
  • The attendance calendar that contains a snapshot of an employees time away from work for an entire year and the ability to drill down to see the hours is a great benefit to managers to see trends in time away throughout the year.
  • The flexibility of the entitlement (PTO, Vacation, Sick, Volunteer Time Off, etc).
  • Would like to see a customizable home page, so when an employee logs in, a company message could be displayed along with quick links or documents that are frequently used.
  • Access for an employee to report on their own personal information such as the time they have taken over a period of time or the ability to reporting on their compensation or job changes over the course of their employment.
  • Would like to see the ability for employees to submit personal changes through forms available in the mobile app.
Ceridian does a great job with the benefits administration component, including the triggering of enrollments based on life events. Ceridian handles the administration of multiple vacation, sick, PTO, etc plans. There's flexibility to build as many security roles as needed and develop customized workflow. The product excels at the core of payroll, time tracking and payroll processing and is growing in other areas such as performance, compensation and succession. The time product is geared towards shift trading and works well for industries like retail, manufacturing and healthcare.
Local taxes are automated through the Ceridian payroll processing creating efficiencies in the payroll process across multiple states. Ceridian also provides great resource articles on compliance updates.

We use Dayforce company-wide to help with recruiting, employee engagement, and payroll and HR. It helps us give our users (employees) access to a wide range of information in one place as well as contains the data we need in day to day operations.
  • Ease of finding information.
  • Keeping a database of past applicants in the talent community.
  • Frequent updates to add new features.
  • Some changes in updates are hard to adjust to.
  • Configuring reports can be tricky.
  • Implementing new modules can take longer than necessary.
Dayforce is great to access employee information and have data at the tip of your fingertips. It is sometimes hard to navigate between different areas that aren't well-integrated, but it isn't a huge challenge.
Dayforce allows us to have state tax forms completed in the system to ensure accuracy. It also tracks time and applies overtime as needed.

Dayforce is used across our whole organization. It helps us with payroll, scheduling, time and attendance, and HR along with a host of other benefits. We have used it to address the labor costs in many of our locations.
  • The ability for employees to log in and see their personal information on their own phones has been very well received.
  • To see the employee and company costs of benefits is beneficial for the company and well as employees.
  • The Scheduling has provided ways for savings in labor costs.
  • Their support takes a long time to respond.
  • Support isn't always able to answer questions.
  • Takes a long time to load using Internet Explorer.
The versatility of Dayforce has offered many solutions to managers' requests by accessibility outside of store locations. Support's response to tickets submitted can take many days for a response. However, they are not always able to provide a solution when responding to a ticket. The mobile feature has pleased many employees.
Due to difficulty with carrier feeds, we have not progressed with improvements in automation of benefits. However, compliance with PPACA rules has never been easier. The system has allowed for us to set up the look back period for the PPACA benefits as well as producing our annual tax forms for the employees and company.

Ceridian Dayforce is used across our entire organization as the primary system of records for HR, Payroll, and Benefits. It allows us to provide a one system experience for the 9,000 employees who we support.

At a prior employer, I also used Dayforce for document management, recruiting, and performance management and we made it fit our business needs.
  • Being a single point for employees to access.
  • Weekly hotfixes and semi-annual upgrades.
  • Leader in the industry for WFM.
  • Often hotfixes and upgrades cause issues.
  • Extremely customizable, need to have the headcount to keep the system under control.
  • Still growing and implementing international features.
Processing payroll, interface files, and using their support team have all been great experiences.

As with any system, the implementation is crucial. If processes are not scoped properly during implementation, it will come back later as an issue within the system. At my prior company, the benefits manager who completed the implementation missed key processes, so we were always having benefit issues. At my current company, benefits are one of the smoothest running processes.

Just be extremely careful during implementation, and if you are thorough things will work great!
Payroll policies allow for easier and consistent payment practices, as well as the updates Dayforce provides to ensure compliance - for example, new California laws came out regarding allowing more gender options, and Dayforce released new features to add custom fields in this area without impacting our current vendor files for benefits.

When we were in the discovery mode of Dayforce to replace a competitor that doesn't fit our growing companies need. We attended the 2018 Ceridian INSIGHTS conference and could not have been more pleased to network with Ceridian employees as well as other prospects, new and long term customers that have been with Ceridian as it grew. Every employee we spoke to was with the company for more than 5 years. Their ability to be easily accessible when needed. The owner, David Ossip even spent the time to let us know we can contact him at any time. When we demo'd Ceridian we had a great experience with the user friendliness, ease of use and the ability to customize it for our business. We have been fortunate enough to have been assigned a great team to work with. Our primary problem is that we are scattered in 14 states. Our HR department has roughly 5 members that utilize various, HCM, HRIS, etc platforms. Cutting costs but not features.
  • Customer Service has been positive thus far. Any questions we've had they've been able to answer right away.
  • Listening to its customers, always asking questions and watching feed boards on what they can do to provide better user experience.
  • Innovation is always changing. They utilize ideas from their clients in different ways to streamline functions.
  • Workflows are a large project.
  • Strategy before marketing a new product, On Demand Pay. While discussing this at the INSIGHTS 2018, there were a lot of unanswered questions. At this stage we are uncertain if they are answered or rectified yet.
Ceridian is great for large employee populations. Especially those that are spread out, that require additional assistance. Great one system platform for those looking to eliminate multiple systems, this is a great opportunity. They assigned a CSM to follow the project from start to live. They are great at answering questions along the way.
It allows the employees the ability to track, change or update as necessary. It keeps documents in one system.

Dayforce was implemented company-wide to address time tracking, payroll, benefits, HRIS, recruiting, HR workflow management and performance reviews. It is used by all levels of employees.
  • Real time updates to payroll
  • Latest updates always included in costs
  • Able to track time independently when an employee has more than one position.
  • Report creation tool takes effort to learn
Dayforce is a great all-in-one product. It works best in companies that are able to use the technology. It is not well suited for companies that prefer paper processes.
ACA module easily creates 1095c and tracks part-time hours.

We use the HR functionality but not all modules currently. We may adapt some later. It is used across our whole US organization. We use the Payroll module also to pay our employees. This includes using Tax Services and Payment Solutions. We are not using the WFM currently but may in the future.
  • Dayforce is quite an intuitive system. We find that it cuts down on paperwork due to the Self Service features. It helped enormously during Open Enrollment.
  • Ceridian keeps their systems up to date. They are always sending me emails for hot-fixes to address problems that were brought up by the user community.
  • I am especially please on the compliance side. They keep the system up to date.
  • Reporting is lacking somewhat. The canned reports aren't as helpful as they should be. You are constantly making additions and changes to their reports to fit your needs.

It works well for our organization so far. We haven't been with it too long but we have been with Ceridian for a long time as a customer.

1. Self Service is a great tool.

2. Payroll is easy to enter and get results quickly.

3. I personally don't like the Benefits module. It requires a lot of learning.

We administer our own policies as far as overtime but do use the Dayforce system for Benefit eligibility. We don't have a union. Ceridian keeps Dayforce up to date for State withholdings so we don't have to worry about that. I have access to the Tax Service and send them updates for Unemployment rate changes. That is the only manual thing I would have to do.
