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

5.0 5 years ago

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.

One solution for HR, payroll and scheduling needs

4.0 last year

Comments: My overall experience has been wonderful. I and the company have been able to achieve many tasks conveniently with the software and it has increased our growth.

Pros:

The most beneficial feature is that it solves many problems together which has helped my company from importing data or worrying about data dropping off when using different softwares.

Cons:

The implementation process was difficult for us to navigate at some point. That's something they can work on in order to make the software easy to use even for beginners.

A day with Dayforce

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: I will continue using this program as long as I’m a practice manager

Pros:

This software makes it easy to calculate hours and submit payroll. Imputing schedules with ease. Showing associate availability and pto requests.

Cons:

I honestly didn’t have much to complain about. I feel like every software can be improved but nothing bad to say about this one

Dayforce HCM

3.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

It is well laid out and clearly formatted. The scheduling section is very easy to use and very quick - being able to drag and copy/paste employee shifts is very convenient.

Cons:

Editing or updating employee details is long winded and the hierarchy section never seems to work first time when setting up new users - it is difficult to have multiple managers over the same employees etc

Easy to use!

4.0 3 months ago

Pros:

It's intuitive and takes almost no explanation to show new employees how it works. Easy to see your hours, confirm your punch times and check your vacation and sick time balance.

Cons:

It can take a minute or so to boot up the first time it is started for the day.
