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.

Shoeboxed

I'm not sure how Shoeboxed can be used in a large organization, but for our small business, it is perfect. I'm the only one who deals with our finances and works with our accountant and for that Shoeboxed is simply my lifesaver and worth so much more for not just all the time it saves me but all the worries and headaches too.

Pros

Darwinbox

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

Shoeboxed

  • Hassle free ways to submit (mobile, snail mail, etc.) with virtually no workload for us
  • Digitalizing business cards to facilitate contact management
  • Categorizing of receipts to make them searchable

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  • The user interface and navigation seems a little outdated - it has got tones of features and capabilities but that is let down by the poor UX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

Shoeboxed

  • I had some issues with the mobile app in the past - where it crashes or gets stuck uploading. I think they fixed most of that, however, I transitioned to simply mailing my documents off to them.

We felt we got more customized support through Shoeboxed and pricing was competitive.

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.

Shoeboxed

  • It saves me, I would say, at least 2-3 hours each week
  • We probably generate 'better' tax returns - more deductions and save on our accountant in the process, since they have everything perfectly prepped
