Offers seamless integration and talent management feature supports frequent equipment drives, facilitating smooth operations
The GUI interface should be more user-friendly. Because, when I first started working on these modules, I was guided step-by-step by my senior colleagues. But for someone new to the system, there should be a better, more user-interactive interface that makes it easier for users to understand. When I first saw it, it felt like a human-understandable version of Linux, because a simple Linux system is not user-friendly for most people. While programmers may understand it, the GUI interfaces on current Linux systems are still not user-friendly enough. That's the point. When I first saw these modules, I had that initial impression. But, as I started working with them, things started to make sense. So, it was just an initial response, and with time, it was fine. My suggestion is that the user interface needs to be more user-friendly, especially for new users.

"Configuring your HR policies and rules is straightforward."
"It provides real-time information with great reports."

"Our employee benefits enrollment is managed through Ceridian Dayforce, which makes for a limited manual process."
"Employees like being able to see what entitlements/balances that they have for their time away."
"Dayforce has transformed how we operate by saving us time, paper, accuracy, money, and the employee/supervisor experience."
"We have been able to automate many of our manual processes."
"It is a configurable, scalable solution."
"Oracle HCM Cloud is essential for security needs and especially for payroll. The payroll feature is very good."
"Our overall evaluation of Oracle HCM Cloud as a general ledger tool is mixed. It is a comprehensive and versatile piece of software."
"We have 35,000 employees in our organization, so we consider the solution to be scalable."
"The most valuable features of the solution are the core HR, absence, payroll, and recruitment modules."
"Oracle HCM Cloud adds the latest features on a quarterly basis to the cloud, which makes it very easy for customers to adapt to the new features."
"It's highly stable because the system is totally managed by Oracle, Oracle provides 99.9% availability for the system uptime."
"Oracle HCM has a great reporting platform, OTPI, with drag-and-drop functionality. I can design my own reports without relying on the technical team. This empowers HR users to create reports based on their needs, which is a huge advantage."


"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 continue to see improvements in the Recruiting module. I would like to see this module interact with Calendars, such as Outlook, etc."
"The solution's initial setup was difficult. Also, the solution's initial deployment took around six months."
"Many things are presented as though they will be included with the system but then require costly upgrades."
"The solution's dashboards and geofencing could be improved."
"One area to be improved is the solution's reporting function, which can be cumbersome."
"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 the solution to improve its customer service communication."
"The interface could be more user friendly."
"The features available in EBS should be available on the cloud as well. When these features are not available on the cloud, it's hard to convince customers to migrate."
"It's not so easy to customize as it's cloud-based."
"It is a cloud solution, so we cannot do much customization. However, if you have a past license, you can do the customization, but unfortunately, we don't have a past license. If we had that, we would have been 100% happy."
"It would be very nice if we were able to roll back transactions from data that was loaded with the data loader."
"I would focus on making high volume recruitment more bulky."
"Oracle should have different bundles to provide access to courses. Then, we would be able to increase our knowledge on how to use Oracle applications."
"Although the performance management is good, it could be improved as its functionality is quite basic."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"We found the setup costs and pricing to be very reasonable."
"I rate the solution's pricing a seven on a scale where one is the lowest and ten is the most expensive."

"We paid for the implementation costs in the first year with the money that we saved by switching to Dayforce HCM."
"Earlier, the price of the product was reasonable. Under present circumstances, the price or cost of the product has been increased."
"Ceridian continually enhances Dayforce HCM. Some of these enhancements they charge for and some are just straight enhancements with no extra charge."
"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."
"There is a license required for the use of this solution and we are on an annual license."
