Darwinbox

Darwinbox in undoubtedly a great human capital management system. It is easy to configure and can be flexibly integrated with the organization's ERP solution. There is little to no training required for employees to use the software - both the desktop version as well as the mobile application. Moreover, it allows employees to connect to each other better on the organization's social network that this software provides. It is best suited for large and mid-sized organizations that have reasonably complex workflows and reporting structures. Darwinbox is less appropriate for relatively flat organizations that have simple workflows and the work involves frequent interaction among employees. In such a case, the use of such an expensive HR tool can be avoided.

If you understand the pitfalls of Eddy, such as needing to manually track what has been signed--vs still pending--then it is a well utilized system. Being able to send documents for signature via HelloSign is useful. At one point we had used HelloSign for onboarding but made it made it difficult to transition and track new hires.

Cons

Darwinbox

  • A small improvement in the UX could be to automate the process of informing the entire organization about an employee's birthday. Presently, the HR manager has to manually send such an email. Sometimes misunderstandings happen when important greetings are missed when the HR manager is on leave.
  • There is just too much data on the Attendance screen. Perhaps, from a UI perspective, this screen could be improved. Also, there should be a feature to recall the leave application if the employee changes his plan and the leave is yet to be approved.

  • An employee needs to accept the invitation to populate in the onboarding tab
  • Documents do not show which documents are pending signature
  • As an HR software, it should have a place with labor law updates based on region

Alternatives Considered

Darwinbox

Darwinbox is a very powerful tool for managing the HR processes of a large organization. It offers a number of unique facilities like the social network module, mobile application version etc. As compared to other software, it offers more utility in the sense that one integrated tool can be used for multiple purposes. It is easy to configure and requires no prior experience from a user's perspective. It provides sharp insights for effective decision making to manage talent in the organization.

ADP HR did not have the tracking portion and allowance of signatures that Eddy does. ADP had an electronic filing system but no ability to send out documents for signature. ADP HR has up-to-date labor laws for our location, so we had to sign up for both products--one to mitigate our legal liability and the other to easily track HR docs that have been signed.

Return on Investment

Darwinbox

  • The ability to view the organization structure and functional structure for the entire company.
  • One-stop solution for talent acquisition, payroll, leaves, reimbursements, attendance (time-sheet), holidays, etc. So I don't have to open a lot of different apps.

  • Managing labor law requirements
  • Somewhat time consuming initially
  • Positive address book
