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.

Sapling HR

It's a good space to have a high level overview of the organization (especially Org view).Places for improvement include extra levels of complexity when you need to click on the person and you are navigated to the pop-up that is hard to use and only one pop up can be used at a time. I wish there wasn't so much of clicking in and clicking out.

Pros

Darwinbox

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

Sapling HR

  • Very customizable. Very easy to create new workflows and tasks to meet the unique needs of your organization.
  • The system is easy to navigate, so minimal training is needed for users.
Aldo Gomez | 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  • The user interface and navigation seems a little outdated - it has got tones of features and capabilities but that is let down by the poor UX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

Sapling HR

  • Deeper data management/review - dashboard experience could be better and deeper
  • Ability to drill into reports within the tool- right now it takes you out to a sheet to view
  • Org planning/org chart sharing

To use this system you need to buy several add-ons. If add-ons do not fit your business model you will have to access platforms from different companies. The system is not easy to use for onboarding. Candidates cannot change and update settings. To use the system a person must click in the correct spots. If not it leads you someplace else. Then you have to start clicking all over again.

Sapling HR helps my HR team keep track of our personal information like contact information or t-shirt sizes (who doesn't like free shirts), as well as helping new hires onboard. I think it's super simple to use and keeps everything pretty nicely organized.

Sapling [HR] was our first and only HR automation platform. We ran a trial campaign with them and did not compare them to other vendors.

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

Sapling HR

  • We were able to get the system implemented very quickly, which was of great importance to us as we were undergoing rapid growth.
  • The system has helped us keep and stay organized and allowed team members to work collaboratively to get tasks done. Many of these tasks were previously managed with various spreadsheets and other trackers that were quickly becoming unmanageable.
  • Sapling has greatly decreased the time we needed to onboard and employee and has prevented many errors.
