What does Dayforce HCM do well? Dayforce is the best full suite of HR services I've used as far as the breadth of features and the ease of use. One thing I think they do particularly well is making the time off process very refreshing - everything from submitting requests to viewing time off request statuses and balances, it allows employees to know exactly where they stand with their time off which is awesome.
What does Dayforce HCM not do well? A caveat would be that Dayforce is probably not an ideal solution for smaller companies. I wouldn't recommend using this unless your company has 100+ employees. Additionally, while they do a great job, Dayforce is still an HR software suite and is a little clunky in some areas.
What do you wish you had known about Dayforce HCM before using? There is definitely onboarding time and a period where you have to get used to the software, especially if you're familiar with another HR software suite. With that said, it's still very user friendly and they have plenty of resources to familiarize yourself quickly. Great product!
Have you used a competitor to Dayforce HCM? If so, how does it compare? Yes, I've used Paylocity before and I would say Dayforce is definitely a superior product.
