We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The fact that the time and attendance system is built into the HRIS is very valuable because, in the past, we had to use two different systems.Our employee benefits enrollment is managed through Ceridian Dayforce, which makes for a limited manual process.It provides real-time information with great reports.We have been able to automate many of our manual processes.The implementation was through a team assigned to us by Ceridian. They were extremely knowledgeable and it made the implementation go very smoothly.The time capture from time cards to charging to projects has greatly improved because it is now all automated and flows into the GL very easily.We like being able to hire from the Dayforce recruiting module straight into Dayforce and having the file feeds go to our benefits vendor.Dayforce has transformed how we operate by saving us time, paper, accuracy, money, and the employee/supervisor experience.

Cons
Many things are presented as though they will be included with the system but then require costly upgrades.Our current software program offers a home page with important company documents and a place for company announcements. Unfortunately, Ceridian Dayfoce does not offer this.I would like to see more built-in forms. This would save a lot of time during the year-end process.An area for improvement could be a little more testing before implementing hotfixes to make sure they do not interfere with any active customized products.I would also like to see some improvement in standard reports. A standard report should be available to pull the required information for Affirmative Action Plans. I do not think I should have to build or create one.I would like to continue to see improvements in the Recruiting module. I would like to see this module interact with Calendars, such as Outlook, etc.It would be nice if retro pay calculations were made automatically for salaried payroll, so a calculation and manual entry do not have to be done.

They have some problems with it.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We found the setup costs and pricing to be very reasonable.The XOXO program associated with Dayforce allows you to earn credits towards registration and accommodations at their annual Insight Conferences, which can be a real savings to the company when sending employees to the conference.We paid for the implementation costs in the first year with the money that we saved by switching to Dayforce HCM.Negotiate for everything you want.Ceridian continually enhances Dayforce HCM. Some of these enhancements they charge for and some are just straight enhancements with no extra charge.
