Overall Satisfaction with Ceridian Dayforce

The entire organization uses Dayforce. The “one stop shop” saves so much time! We have a pretty complex set up and love that it simplifies it. This product will help stop mistakes from manual entry into multiple softwares. Our company is made up of 10 EINs and our employees work across 5-6 EINs in any given pay period. To have a system with 1 employee ID that can calculate OT across all companies, allocating correctly to each company and reporting correctly on the W2s was a lifesaver. For all managers to see the same employee scheduled at all of the different locations in central place provides a great communication tool without having to track down the other manager. For Payroll and HR to see the same employee in one area and not have to reenter them three times is invaluable.

Pros

  • One ID for an employee.
  • You can customize the set up to meet your needs.
  • Truly EVERYTHING can be customized within Dayforce. You can have layers upon layers of seniority, company structure, timesheet rules, etc.
  • Everything you do is real time. This makes it so easy to see where your labor costs are at any moment. The second an employees shift closes by them clocking out for the day, the hours are loaded into their time sheets and the system knows how much the employee needs to be paid. Even better, the minute Payroll opens the pay cycle, the employee can ALSO see how much their pay check is going to be. This puts the responsibility back on the employee to verify that their timesheets are correct.

Cons

  • Support has improved, but it is still in need of improvement. The response time could be faster. Although on pay day they are spot on and help immediately.
  • To be able to log in as an employee and only see what they see would be unbelievable! Dayforce has an unbelievably great self service portal, but when an employee has an issue, it is difficult to help them because you aren't able to log in and see what the employee is seeing due to the fact that you have more powers within the system.
  • Report writing has gotten much easier, but it still needs a little bit of work. In order to write reports in the system, you still need to know quite a bit about the system.
  • So much time saved on not doing duplicate work in multiple systems. With one employee record, the system has saved us hours. We used to have to input the same employee into the time clock system, the payroll system AND the HR system. Now it is one entry for each employee no matter how many companies they work for.
  • So much paper movement has stopped. We used to have paperwork for promotions, raises, tax documents, etc. It is now all within Dayforce. It saves time (eliminates the interoffice mail), paper costs, and filing cabinet space (let alone the labor cost of the person doing the filing.
  • The speed has improved due to it processed in the system. There is no lag time because the system is integrated. With one integrated system, you only pay for the input one time, not three.
We use FLSA blended OT rates, as well as dynamic allocation across many EINs and the system handles it with no problems. It is able to blend the multiple weekly rates and apply it to the correct position that should have incurred the overtime.
This is the greatest part of Dayforce!! When we are hiring, there is never a duplicate hire because the system knows if that employee already exists in the database. We have 4 different HR hiring departments across our companies (3 within the same city) and the system automatically provides a notification if the person being hired is already in the system. It saves so much time. Once the employee is hired, you are able to see all of their scheduled times in one place, so you can schedule them for multiple jobs for different managers. It is seamless and transparent to all managers.
The system is in constant contact with itself so there are no duplicate entries, time is saved and manual mistakes are avoided.
Dayforce is amazing for organizations that are currently using separate systems for time/HR/payroll. To be able to put all our your systems into one is invaluable. To be able to make the system your own is invaluable.
