    Employees that come into work are needed to clock in to get paid for the amount of time they are working per day. They will log on to Darwinbox and clock in as soon as they can. Some will use the PTO they have available to use. HR will be able to make payroll in a timely manner for employees.

    It's definitely well suited for all organizations with knowledge workers who use computers to do their work and are able to log in and enter their time on a regular basis. I've always had access to it as part of my job and love using SpringAhead. It may be less appropriate in a role where the worker does not have regular access to a computer to enter their hours digitally.

    Pros

    • Workforce planning, recruitment, tracking the recruitment drives and interview statuses and updates for the potential hires at one place
    • Integrated Rewards and Recognition, Performance management systems, and project and resourcing management
    • Great analytics dashboard allowing the more holistic and drill down visualization as per the need

    • Allows for tracking of time very easily. Users can add all their project's time in one place instead of drilling into each project.
    • Managers can approve their team's time all in one place. We do not need to drill down to find the info and approve. Users who don't report to the manager but are part of the project can still be approved by the project manager.
    • Reports are easy to read when looking at historical information. Reports can be run with multiple parameters that the user needs.

    Cons

    Darwinbox

    • The app version is a bit lankier than the pc version.
    • Interface customization would be great for individuals wanting to change style.
    • No other real issue to improve, possibly lower the price but that's not too bad.

    • Automated reminders to employees would be great
    • A more modern and up-to-date user interface
    • The approvals system for projects vs. users could use some work

        Darwinbox is up there with ADP in terms of quality for employers to use in such an open-level style. I personally would support the use of Darwinbox against the competition.

        We selected SpringAhead because of price and usability. This tool is easy to set up and configure. It is a cloud application allowing access from anywhere. There were no training requirements. When you have a small use case this tool is the way to go. We moved off SpringAhead to get more functionality and it has required a lot more training and effort to maintain and utilize

        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.
