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, get data-driven insights across all HR functions so you can make better decisions for the entire employee lifecycle. Dayforce HCM software 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's HCM software 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 make sure their employee information is accurate and up to date.

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

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.

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.

Best software for HR tasks - Dayforce

Reviewed on 2022-09-23

Pros

Dayforce is a great software to use for any kind of HR tasks for your organization. In my role, I was able to edit my team members timesheet, keep track of PTO, submit job postings, and more. All of the above were easy to do with the UI of Dayforce and getting around the website. The mobile app is a great addition to have to make changes on the go.

Cons

No major cons with Dayforce with the purpose of my use in my role.

I believe that dayforce is helping companies be more productive by taking care of all the employees needs from one app without making the employee having to always ask for the mangers time to answer all the questions dayforce can answer for you .

Pros

I like that you are able to see which employees are in the roster and what position they are in . I like the feature where you can check all your days and when you work and when your off . I also like that you can check your vacation/sick pay easily by pressing one button instead of having to go ask the manager. You are able to easily edit your availability .

Cons

The hardest thing about the app is that you can’t edit you availability the same week of it locks it .
