Darwinbox

I would recommend Darwinbox to anyone who is looking for a modern Human Resource Management System (HRMS) for a small to medium size organization, it is power-packed with quite a lot of feature sets that'll help to eradicate and bring down the spending and efforts of managing multiple platforms. But Darwinbox is not that suitable for a larger organization with more than 500 people since there are several other enterprise-grade HRMS solutions that are more robust, scalable and well architected for the larger organization.

FinancialForce HCM (Discontinued)

FinancialForce HCM is well suited when it comes to any of our workers.[They] can request time off, and immediately their manager gets an email notification to approve or reject their request - this saves paper and saves time while still having a paper trail for the request.
The fact that it's a managed packaged - we've requested a lot of customization that couldn't be done which makes it hard to meet our needs.

Cons

Darwinbox

  • The user interface and navigation seems a little outdated - it has got tones of features and capabilities but that is let down by the poor UX
  • Migration from the legacy HRMS takes a bit of time and effort, not a super smooth transition given that Darwinbox has limited types/methods available for importing the data from other HRMS while migrating
  • Poor Customer support - Logging in the ticket is easy but getting it done within the SLA is a dream for their team and us as well. The support team is not that responsive and communicative.

FinancialForce HCM (Discontinued)

  • When we add a new position and requisition, we were under the impression, that the posting would pull automatically from the position. This is true, but it jumbles all the information into one long paragraph.

FinancialForce HCM (Discontinued)

After discussing several HCM vendors, it was decided that Financial Force HCM was the best fit for this client because it had the right balance between features and price. Considering the modules they required, and their current software setup (mainly Salesforce) Financial Force HCM made the most sense for this client

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.
