Overall Satisfaction with Ceridian Dayforce

Orvis utilizes Dayforce for HR, Benefits, Payroll, Time & Attendance, Scheduling and Recruiting. We employee 1750 employees in the United States and 215 employees in the United Kingdom. Dayforce is a cloud-based single application which eliminated the need for the multiple interfaces we used with our old systems. It has greatly approved our employee and manager self-service experience with the use of mobile technology and data readily available through its robust reporting capabilities.
  • Dayforce is easy to learn and easy to operate. It gives employees control of their data with anytime access, and helps us make sure our employee information is accurate and up to date.
  • With data stored in a single, central location, we get data-driven insights across all HR and Payroll functions so we can make better decisions for the entire employee lifecycle.
  • Payroll is calculated continuously throughout the pay period, giving my payroll team the time they need to produce accurate and timely pay.
  • One specific area of improvement would be with WFM (Time and Attendance) where we could get a snapshot of weekly/biweekly timecard totals without having to scroll through the detailed "Pay" totals.
  • Because our company pays different hourly amounts to employees for holiday pay based on their FT/PT status, we would like to see the hours appear in the time card totals without having to go to the "Pay" tab to confirm.
  • System Security settings should include the ability to grant access to hourly and/or salaried employees. This would eliminate the need for unneeded configuration to prohibit some manager level employees from seeing salaried associates.
  • Increased productivity through more robust employee and manager self-service.
  • Introduction of mobile technology for HR and Payroll data.
  • Elimination of multiple interfaces in place for older systems.
Dayforce has enabled compliance for state tax withholding, reciprocity rules, state wage and hour rules, overtime policies, company PTO tracking, benefit enrollments, etc.
The single application has greatly improved our ability to make decisions regarding hiring, scheduling, compliance and compensation more timely and much more efficiently
The impact of having a single application versus creating and maintaining multiple interfaces has made work life much less complicated!
Dayforce is a single application with robust capabilities that empowers our workforce with access to their personal information including schedules, timesheets, pay statements, benefit elections, etc with most available through mobile technology.

Evaluating Ceridian Dayforce HCM and Competitors

Yes - Cerdian Dayforce was an upgrade to an existing Ceridian product, and it replaced our Kronos timekeeping system as well as a third-party recruiting system. It made sense to utilize the benefits of a single fully integrated solution and avoid the need for multiple interfaces
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Vendor Reputation
  • Existing Relationship with the Vendor
  • Analyst Reports
Ceridian continues to be an important business partner and with the introduction of Dayforce, we were able to take advantage of many new features offered in a single application
We would not change anything with our evaluation or selection process. It was the right choice after looking at many other options.
