Modernizing with Dayforce HCM!

2017-01-18

I can't wait to finalize the implementation of Performance Management with Team Relate.

Allow more time than you anticipate for pre-implementation, especially if your company has policies, processes and workflows which can be documented, evaluated, and revised to make a smoother transition. The sooner you can iron out your inefficiencies, the better!

Preparation is Key

2018-02-14

Single database, tax processing and management, ease of updating employee information, even backdated changes

Pros

We love the SourceTax and single database approach, and reporting has been very flexible.

Cons

We've had some issues because we didn't start our training until we were already in implementation, and we made a few mistakes that we're stuck with at this point. They frequently release updates, many based on customer suggestions, which is good, but sometimes the new releases (two per year are mandatory) cause unanticipated issues in previously functional areas.

Dayforce - Straighforward & Helpful

2018-07-03

Automated HR functions such as performance management, payroll management, benefits, employee communications.

Pros

We utilize this system for employee alerts, employee accured time, timesheets, manager approvals, payroll, benefits, requests for time off and performance reviews.

Cons

The timesheet option is a bit complicated. It takes many steps to find your weekly timesheet with the totals added for each week, need to click on the calendar option which is confusing. Not very user friendly during the navigation process.

Spend more time on strategic decisions and less time worrying about your software application.

2016-12-01

Employees can view their time card in real-time and it's easy to view task progress across devices.

Pros

- Intuitive user interface that is easy to use for people with various technical abilities - Employees can view their time card in real-time on many different devices - Easily view task progress across devices and with downward visibility throughout the organization

Cons

- Dayforce could use more robust reporting within the application but have recently released a new Business Intelligence tool to fill the need

When choosing Dayforce compared to the competition: Dayforce's user interface blew away the competition. When we reached the final stage of our RFP process, we brought in future end-users to demo the products (without vendor intervention). After giving the end-users time to play with different products, 9 out of 10 chose Dayforce and the top reason was ease of use. While other products demonstrated better competencies in other areas such as analysis/reporting, the area which mattered most to the future users of the products won out. We even had future users showing us the products before the demo was even over.

Ceridian Dayforce provides the flexibility that we need to be successful!

2017-06-21

We can now customize our own system, we can run reports, and we have total control over our employee database.

Pros

We like the freedom to do our own configuration. The interface is very user friendly.

Cons

Initial set up and implementation is a little challenging because when converting, you don't know what you don't know. Some of the hidden features and functionality don't become apparent until you make a mistake and have to seek assistance.
