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.

No, we just had a bad experience unfortunately.

  • Unfortunately our experience was very poor, so I don't have anything for what they do "particularly" well.

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.

SilkRoad

  • Transparency about the capabilities of their system. We would have never chosen WingSpan had we had a clear picture of the limitations of their system.
  • Ease of use - as an administrator we found it to be difficult to work with. Of course, improvements may have been made in this area since we used it last.
  • The user interface could use some updating.

      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.

      We used Cvent following our WingSpan experience. It worked out much better and had more capability than WingSpan.

      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.

      • I feel it set us back a bit, and also caused us to lose credibility with our management team after it turned out to be a "failed experiment."
      • We have gone back to a manual system of doing goal setting that works better for us.
