Overall Satisfaction with Ceridian Dayforce

Dayforce HCM is our HRIS system used for HR, Payroll, Recruiting, Benefits and Learning and Development. Our entire organization uses this system. It resolves the issue of having to use multiple systems to manage our employees. We utilize the Dayforce system so that our employee information crosses multiple platforms making the management of staff much simpler than using multiple systems.
  • It is a cloud-based application. Being able to use the cloud prevents bogging down our own servers when all employees are accessing the system.
  • Dayforce simplifies payroll by calculating daily as we go.
  • Dayforce provides multiple modules that meet several business needs, including payroll, Recruiting, Benefits, and Learning and development.
  • They still utilize Silverlight. This causes some browser compatibility issues.
  • Hotfixes seem to occur frequently. These should not occur so often.
  • System upgrades happen too often. This should be limited to maybe twice a year.
  • Ceridian Dayforce has had a positive ROI because the overall cost is less than half of what we paid for our former HRIS provider.
  • Ceridian Dayforce offers additional modules which are less expensive than purchasing an entirely new software package.
  • Reducing the annual cost of our HRIS allowed us to purchase additional modules for compensation, as well as an LMS for our Learning and Development Department.
Ceridian Dayforce assists with compliance in multiple ways. The first and most important is by tracking the mandatory meal periods in the State of California. Configuration allowed us to build in a failsafe so that we are aware if an employee works more than six hours without taking a mandatory meal break, or if they work over ten hours they must waive or take a second meal period.
The single application with cloud-based access has simplified numerous HR and managerial functions. We are able to jump from module to module and view all of the necessary information for processing promotions, terminations, merit increases and any other functionality that is needed to perform the day to day operations of HR or any other department.
The old system was not as user-friendly, we had difficulty getting reports that were needed. Dayforce allows us to configure the system ourselves, whereas with ADP we had to contact them to request any changes made to the system. Also, reports were not available without submitting a request via email.
Ceridian is well suited for a company who is looking to handle all of their employee needs in one system. It is very convenient for managers to have access to their employees via any computer or any cell phone as long as the app is loaded. This is very convenient. Approving timecards and time off requests can all be done remotely.
