    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.

    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.

    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.

    Sapling

    • 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.

        Alternatives Considered

        Darwinbox

        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.

        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.

        • 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.
