Overall Satisfaction with Ceridian Dayforce

It is used by the whole organization and it addresses payroll and HR administration. We use the employee self service module and one positive thing is that employees are able to view their paychecks online now. We used to use UltiPro before and while it was more powerful it was more expensive.
  • Payroll processing
  • Easier reporting
  • Employee Self service
  • Slow loading bar
  • Mobile limitations
  • Implementation team does everything for you so you don’t really know how to fix something later.
  • Reduced reliance on paper
  • Different processes for different departments because one is more complicated.
It helps with state tax withholding, healthcare eligibility, and overtime policies.
Our organization has not fully grasped the reporting tool so it is hard to get access to real-time information. We are learning during this conference.
HR was using UltiPro in the past and payroll was using a different system we had to have files sent daily between the systems and now with one system we no longer have to transmit the files daily.
Ceridian Dayforce is good for payroll processing but in terms of HR we had to buy other systems to do what UltiPro used to do before such as I-9 management onboarding performance reviews disciplinary actions. We were able to get rid of our ACA management software but more was promised to us during the sales meeting than the product really can perform.
