Overall Satisfaction with Ceridian Dayforce

We are presently wrapping up implementation for Core HCM. We had a phased approach to our implementation which has been both a blessing and a curse. Dayforce has given us the best insight in to operational concerns that need both immediate and long-term attention.
  • Providing employees with the best visibility to their records.
  • Allows for a company to house the entire employee life-cycle electronically.
  • The reporting feature is very robust though can be challenging if one does not know the back-end for advanced purposes.
  • Effective dating can cause an issue when mass importing data.
  • Retro functionality when importing time during a prior pay period.
  • Working on streamlining our business practices.
  • Hopefully will see a reduction in the reliance of paper processes.
  • Hope to see a reduction in manual processes.
Dayforce as a whole is giving us a better eye of operational concerns.
The HCM is giving a 360 degree view that our company has never truly had.
Though there have been headaches, the application is giving us and our employees a greater mode of data integrity.
Dayforce allows for a high level of customization though it does require the company to be "brave" and think outside the box at times. No issue is too small but proper mind-mapping should occur.
