Key benefits of Dayforce HCM

Continuous pay calculation: Traditionally, payroll admins have been unable to access their data until after the pay period had ended, and consistently ran out of time for audits. Dayforce has a single, flexible rules engine for time and pay. This means that pay is calculated continuously throughout the pay period, giving administrators the time they need to produce high-quality pay.

One application: With data stored in a single, central location, you get data-driven insights across all HR functions so you can make better decisions for the entire employee lifecycle. Dayforce eliminates the need for complicated integrations to simplify workflows, increase accuracy, and enhance compliance.

Actionable insights: Get the right data to the right people at the right time. Dayforce provides critical data-driven insights to help you make fast, informed decisions. Sophisticated predictive technologies help align business strategy with daily operations.

Anytime, anywhere access: Access Dayforce using the device of your choice on web or mobile. Dayforce is easy to learn and easy to operate. It gives employees control of their data with anytime access and helps organizations ensure their employee information is accurate and up to date.

Dayforce HCM: Customize to Modernize

Reviewed on 19/06/2023

Dayforce has allowed us to streamline our processes in a better way while continuing to improve.

Dayforce has allowed us to streamline our processes in a better way while continuing to improve.

Pros

The ability to customize with relative ease. We are a highly complex company with several different union and non-union employee populations. The pay and time processing requirements are different by employee group, and Dayforce makes policy assignment simple.

Cons

Schedules are a bit cumbersome for non-traditional schedule types. We have employees whom work split shifts and the current scheduling capabilities do not allow us to create rotations.

Dayforce is an excellent option for any enterprise-level business. If you're looking to fix a problem with the system's mainstay functionality—namely, payroll and related "pay logic”—I think Dayforce is your best bet. After making that call, you'll also see increased productivity from the other modules I mentioned.

Pros

Ceridian Dayforce is used for many different purposes, including payroll, benefits, and attendance tracking. The payroll is run every other week. Dayforce is used for benefits enrollment, and the data is then sent to our supplier via an export. Dayforce is used to record and analyze attendance data, whereas DF is used to record and analyze vacation, sick, and personal time.

Cons

While progress has been made in the area of learning, its usefulness is limited by the fact that it is integrated from the outside. The scheduling module requires more human intervention than is ideal.

Dayforce is a fine system to use, with various issues hidden throughout. While my least favourite is the customer support, Dayforce also has a multitude of ways to find solutions on your own to avoid contacting customer support and spending large amounts of the company's money.I find Dayforce great and frustrating; there are so many good features with Dayforce that I'm looking forward to using, but I do find the system to be pretty convoluted. In order to fix ONE thing, I have to go through two to three different outlets within the system to make sure those work before this one thing is fixed.I do wish I had more positive things to say about Dayforce, but it's not the worst system I've used.

Pros

Easy to use features for both manager and employee. It's sleek-looking and doesn't require a lot of effort to learn how to use Dayforce. We are currently implementing document management and it seems simple, but effective.

Cons

Customer support has been both helpful and lacking. Helpful because of the forums, but it's very hit and miss with a rep. Sometimes I am given someone who is very helpful, provides guides, or reasonable answers within a good amount of time.Then there are times when I receive a rep who takes too long to answer or find out what the issue is, doesn't communicate, or doesn't initially fix the issue, causing more time and money (for the business).

Dayforce HCM

Reviewed on 06/03/2024

Pros

Dayforce is easy to use when it is set up to meet your organization's policies. They walk you through the whole process and their customer service is quick to respond when you have problems.

Cons

They frequently do updates which is a good thing and they also notify you on upcoming updates. I don't think this is bad though.

Our entire organization has been using Dayforce now for several years. It is user friendly and can be learned quickly even by our employees who are not very tech savvy.

Pros

Dayforce is a "one for all" program that handles all of our workforce time tracking and scheduling needs.

Cons

I have found that management approvals through the app are not quite as easy as they are online.
