Likelihood to Recommend

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.

JobAdder

I've already answered this question. JobAdder is easy to use, easy to configure, has great support, has a strong product roadmap, good partner integrations...really a top-notch platform.

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  • The user interface and navigation seems a little outdated - it has got tones of features and capabilities but that is let down by the poor UX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.

JobAdder

  • Hard to get in touch with technical support
  • Has a price to it
  • Hard to clear alerts

Many of the products we have evaluated are not available on the list. We've looked at Mindscope Cura, we've used Mindscope (before Cura), we were long-time users of Sendouts (before Bullhorn acquisition), and we were on a product called Compas for a few years before moving to JobAdder. JobAdder excels in product features/capabilities, ease of use, and incredible support. We have been very pleased with our selection!

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.
