"Our experience with Day force has been great from Implementation on. We never felt alone."

Comments: Before Dayfore, we were using three different systems. One for payroll, one for time and attendance, and another for HR. We had to import data from one system to another so there was the potential of data dropping off. We were able to combine three systems into one with Dayforce. Since Ceridian uses one solution, once an employee is hired they are visible in all parts of the system immediately. No more waiting for overnight updates. Ceridian cut my payroll processing time by 40%, which allows me more time to audit my work. There are some great audit reports built into the system, which I run every payroll. They point to problems with can be corrected before we finalize for the week. The ability to run wage and tax registers, and W2's anytime of the year, allows me to fix any potential problems, which in turn make year end a breeze. My employees now are able to manage some of their own data, which alleviates the burden off HR and Payroll and allows the employee to update their records when it is convenient for them.

Pros: I love that it is one solution. No more imports, no more worries about data dropping off. The test portal allows us to set up new deductions and earnings, and test them before putting them into production. The future dating feature works really well. It allows us to enter increase early and test them in a future payroll to see how the employees pay check will look, and gives us more time to audit our changes thus relieving some of the stress that comes with year end. The education portal is a big plus. It allows us to learn at our own pace, and to schedule that classes that are helpful for each administrative role.

"Dayforce User"

Comments: Dayforce allows our organization to house all of our employee records and performance reviews. Previously we had ADP and we had issues with retaining employee records with accurate information.

Pros: Very easy to maneuver through screens once you get the hang of what you want to see.

Cons: Terminated employees were not included in the search feature but this has recently changed and a box has been added to show those employees.

"Dayforce - HR and Payroll software"

Comments: It is a good product. It is cloud based which makes is highly desirable during the pandemic. Customer support is also very helpful.

Pros: A lot of features are easy to adapt and there is less of a learning curve. The software can be used for a host of HR functions from payroll to recruitment, LMS, performance management and more.

Cons: The system has a vast number of features and one needs to rely on a consultant for customization. Advanced knowledge of software engineering is necessary while creating reports or XML forms.

"Dayforce - Implementation Beware"

Comments: Bumpy at best. Some days I actually say I miss ADP.

Pros: I like the 'one' database aspect the best.

Cons: Implementation was very lacking. Nearly a disaster. I am over 2 years in and still have not been able to get everything we originally intended to do up and running.

"Dayforce Review"

Comments: Overall I am happy with the product. We used ADP prior to switching to Dayforce and this platform is much more user friendly than the ADP platform. I only had to do one roll out training on this new system and my employees have been able to figure out the rest! Very user friendly.

Pros: This platform is so easy and intuitive! I love the scheduling feature. You employees can enter blocked days which makes it even easier! Approving time off and employee shift exchanging is so easy on this platform!

Cons: My least favorite feature of this platform is the messaging! It seems so simple to include this feature, but we have trouble getting another employees information to populate so the message can be sent to them. We are able to send large messages to everyone, but individuals seems to have an issue.
