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.

Skyward HRMS

For a medium sized company I believe Skyward is an acceptable and not too complicated system. I do not work with the back end so I am not aware of the reporting capabilities which would be a deciding factor for some companies. For K12 Education it seems to check all the boxes

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

Skyward HRMS

  • Skyward is superior in tracking and submitting PTO
  • Skyward is accessible in the cloud so 24/7 access
  • Menus and screens are fairly easy for non-technical users to navigate

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

Skyward HRMS

  • The Captcha screen can be needlessly complex or hard to guess due to letters overlapping
  • Then time off screen defaults to 0 hours when creating a new entry and the zero does not get replaced... turning 8 hours into 80 hours unintentionally

Alternatives Considered

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.

Skyward HRMS

Not part of the selection process, but the new Skyward system is fr easier, user friendly and full featured than previous systems I have used

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.

  • Previously we had multiple systems for licensed and unlicensed staff, Skyward brings it all together creating a same experience for all users
