    Employees that come into work are needed to clock in to get paid for the amount of time they are working per day. They will log on to Darwinbox and clock in as soon as they can. Some will use the PTO they have available to use. HR will be able to make payroll in a timely manner for employees.

    Resource Guru

    It is very well suited when different branches of the company reside in different countries or time zones. It allows the project manager to efficiently keep track of the progress of their team members. It reduces the need for intensive calls where the manager asks for an extensive check in and update from each individual person. It also allows the project manager to update tasks and timelines as needed.

    Pros

    Darwinbox

    • Employee Management - including personal details and other core HR and resourcing features e.g. time tracking, expense, payroll etc
    • Workforce planning, recruitment, tracking the recruitment drives and interview statuses and updates for the potential hires at one place
    • Integrated Rewards and Recognition, Performance management systems, and project and resourcing management
    • Great analytics dashboard allowing the more holistic and drill down visualization as per the need
    Himanshu Shah | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Resource Guru

    • Task tracking: allows user to input tasks which may be marked off as finished by other members of the team.
    • Time tracking: allows users to log the amount of time spent on particular tasks.
    • Cross team management: allows users from different locations and time zones to view the same page and relevant tasks.
    Shannon Hartzell | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Darwinbox

    • The app version is a bit lankier than the pc version.
    • Interface customization would be great for individuals wanting to change style.
    • No other real issue to improve, possibly lower the price but that's not too bad.
    Mario Alvarez | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Resource Guru

    • It isn't quite as user-friendly as I would like. Once you are accustomed to it, it is very useful, but the initial use could be facilitated.
    • One user-friendly calendar interface that displays tasks and deadlines would be nice.
    • A real-time time logging button would be nice, rather than entering hours retroactively.

    Darwinbox is up there with ADP in terms of quality for employers to use in such an open-level style. I personally would support the use of Darwinbox against the competition.
    Mario Alvarez | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Resource Guru

    Resource Guru is the only product of it's kind that I have used regularly. Slack is comparable in allowing communication between teams, but doesn't have nearly the functionality of Resource Guru. Resource Guru is the only product that I am aware of that manages tasks and deadlines between various team members, and can be accessed by all members.

    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

    Resource Guru

    • It has made our cross functional team much more productive and efficient.
    • The only negative feature is the slightly complicated user interface. Before a manager was fully introduced to the product, it was not utilized as much as should be.
    • It allowed all details of timelines to be updated easily (automatically), if the deadline is pushed forward or back.
