    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.

    Shortlist

    We haven't found another system that can do all that Shortlist can do (payments, tax paperwork, profile management, project management, on-boarding, etc...) but it doesn't mean we always love using Shortlist. Shortlist is cumbersome to work in and requires LOTS of redundant clicking. Something as simple as being able to right-click to open on any profile/page/account/link would save hours in a week where as now to get to two side-by-side items on some lists, you have to click back a page, re-load, and scroll down to select the next option. I appreciate that Shortlist manages all the tax paperwork and has created for us a on-boarding system that flows nicely and allows multiple team members to manage their piece of the process.

    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

    Shortlist

    • Shortlist allows us to pay our freelancers without having to personally manage the back end paperwork of payroll
    • Shortlist handles all the year end tax paperwork creation and distribution

    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

    Shortlist

    • Shortlist only allows for minor customizations to their platform. It would be great if each company could create their own view/usage set for the system.
    • The help chat box needs some work for sure. It takes days for someone to respond if they ever respond and often there is nothing they can do to remedy the issue at hand.
    • Payments should be able to be made every day, not just on Fridays.

    Based on 4 answers
    30-40% of the time there is no response when you contact the chat/help feature.30-40% of the time if they do respond, it is to say they can't do anything about the issue.Maybe 20% of the time the chat is actually helpful, but that seems like a high estimate when I think about my experience asking for support.

    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.
    Mario Alvarez | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Shortlist

    We've never found another platform that does exactly what Shortlist does in terms of payments, taxes, project management, and on-boarding. We use other sites to source our new vendors (like Indeed, craigslist, etc...) but ultimately we direct all those applicants to our onboarding in Shortlist. I wish some of the more "minor" platform issues we've had over the last year were fixed sooner (or fixed at all) but it does the job!

    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

    Shortlist

    • Shortlist allows us to pay people and provide tax information which is a positive.
    • Shortlist doesn't integrate with many other platforms which causes us huge delays in employee work time which is a negative.
