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.

OnShift

Well suited: managing schedules, filling open shifts, printing schedules, PBJ, integration with payroll software (ADP).Less appropriate: Text2HIre software, ability to change schedule format for employees to easily understand/read.

Pros

Darwinbox

  • Easy to use and navigate.
  • Simple and intuitive interface.
  • Covers all HR needs in one software.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

OnShift

  • Scheduling - ease of creating, managing, modifying schedules.
  • PBJ (Payroll-Based Journal) - easy to enter numbers, download CVS file and upload to CMS.
  • Communicate to employees regarding open shifts, share open shifts with staff.
  • Send mass texts to employees as needed.
Stephanie Swap | TrustRadius Reviewer

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  • The user interface and navigation seems a little outdated - it has got tones of features and capabilities but that is let down by the poor UX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

OnShift

  • OnShift's Text2Hire software for texting current applicants is not as flexible as other platforms and too pricey for the quality of the product.
  • Downloading schedules to an Excel file or spreadsheet that is easy for employees to read and understand is an issue.

OnShift account managers consistently respond to emails in less than one business day and are able to address issues very quickly when they occur. Very responsive. This is critical considering integration with the payroll system (ADP).

OnShift

SmartLinx has payroll platform which integrates nicely with scheduling platform, reducing redundant pay code entry. Analytics ties in both payroll and scheduling. However, SmartLinx is not as user-friendly or intuitive as OnShift; PBJ platform not as good as OnShift, communication with employees more difficult than with OnShift.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

OnShift

  • Easily filling shifts - reduced OT usage.
  • Easily communicating with employees regarding open shifts - reduce OT, better care provided to patients/residents.
  • PBJ reporting - easily performed, reports easy to read, ensure maintaining CMS 5-Star Staffing rating.
