Customer Service has been horrible for Dayforce and Powerpay. They have some knowledgeable staff but an equal amount that will steer your wrong. They ignore cancellation requests so they can charge you more, they ignore verbal confirmations where you request 1 month of a particular service then charge you more because you didn't send in a formal cancellation. Overall the best experience I've had with Ceridian has been mediocre but for the most part I'm happy to have moved over to ADP.

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.

Ceridian Powerpay is useful for an organization with either a small or large workforce, with a reasonably simple payroll setup. Our organization does not have any complicated commission schema, so Ceridian Powerpay works excellent for standard payroll that doesn’t change too much from week to week, often with salaried employees that have predictable compensation. I would hesitate to recommend Ceridian Powerpay to an organization with more complication pay systems, especially if they are larger as Ceridian Powerpay seems better suited to standard payroll without anything outside of the norm. While not feature-rich overall, Ceridian Powerpay gets the job done, and it is easy to use, so you can rely on multiple users in the organization being trained to use the software without requiring a significant investment on your part.
