Overall Satisfaction with Ceridian Powerpay

Ceridian Powerpay is currently being used by our organization for payroll processing. While we have a small team, especially during the pandemic, it is still the best payroll software I have experience with regardless of team size.

Ceridian helps ensure payroll is processed quickly, accurately, and on time every time. The interface is extremely user friendly, you can customize payroll settings accordingly.

Being in the hospitality industry we are able to apply tips to payroll if needed. Ceridian makes it easy to add and remove employees easily - which is extremely beneficial in an industry with high turnover rate and during this pandemic.

Issuing automatic ROEs and T4s is also a huge bonus. It really helps take the stress off of the individual who processes payroll.


  • Very intuitive and user friendly interface.
  • Automatic ROEs and T4s.
  • Customizing your payroll needs whether that be tips, commission, extra deductions, dual pay rates, etc.
  • Their support is extremely helpful, although rarely needed.


  • Would be great if you could search for specific ROEs in the system rather than having to go into each individual pay period package to locate - especially when there may be 10+ ROEs.
  • Being able to customize our payroll - having customized deductions, dual pay rates, option to add tips.
  • Ease of creating ROEs & T4s.
  • Accurate reporting and ability to review previous payrolls going back years.
  • User friendly interface which allows other users to learn for “just in case” scenarios.
  • The return on investment has been substantial for our company. Having a payroll system that calculates everything for you, processes important documents, and only takes minimal time and effort allows us to focus more time on running the business and generating revenue.
  • Instead of having a user spend half a day (or potentially a full day) processing payroll, it only takes a couple hours (obviously depending on how many employees need to be processed).
Have not used any other payroll software in my experience.

In all honestly I don’t know a situation where Ceridian Powerpay would not be appropriate to use. I have used it at a company with 12 employees, and at a company with 100 employees. The system works great regardless of company size and the benefits significantly outweigh any (if any) negatives.

I only have experience with the system in the hospitality industry but it covered all our needs and more that I can only imagine that would apply to other industries as well.
