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.

PageUp

I think it can be very helpful and generate great ROI if you are a big company with a lot of recruitment processes running. It provides a centralized management view and a lot of resources/features. It can be too much and become hard to manage if you have spot and urgent demands, since it takes time to start getting results from the system, considering its learning curve.

Pros

Darwinbox

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

PageUp

  • It has the ability to be easy to use and has multiple components that make it easy to quickly find employees.
  • I really enjoy using PageUp because once you're trained in it, it's very easy to use.
  • It's especially strong in being able to organize manage positions and you're able to put as much information as you need on the job descriptions.

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  • The user interface and navigation seems a little outdated - it has got tones of features and capabilities but that is let down by the poor UX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

PageUp

  • At first reporting and analytics were a bit confusing, but then we got used to it.
  • It would be great to have tools to make easier the deployment of simple and quick recruitment process, reducing the learning curve to use the product.
  • A version in Portuguese would make everything easier for us.

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.

PageUp

  • Positive: centralized and more efficient management process
  • Positive: cost saving when compared to other traditional recruitment processes
  • Negative: learning curve and time to deploy, especially if users are not very experienced with recruitment processes
