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.

I've heard that if set up correctly, for a small company, the software works. Cloud functionality is greatly appreciated.

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.

The sectionality of the support structure causes unnecessary delays, lots of confusion, and even misinformation. I miss the old days where you had one person to call, they pulled in any other required resources, and you got a solid and timely answer. Each ticket submitted is a gamble, as the service varies widely from consultant to consultant, and issues are often passed back and forth between support and professional services, with no one taking responsibility for solving the issue. Tickets are ignored for days or weeks at a time, and often the answer is "this is the way the system is designed" and the ticket is closed.

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: Enterprise EV5. Old hosted product, but configurable with full reporting and auditing capabilities and full rights to your own data at all times. I did not make this choice.

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.

  • It was set up poorly and we're still suffering.
  • Without full auditing capabilities, I'm not able to mitigate all risks.
  • The support structure is severely lacking.
