Darwinbox

Darwinbox in undoubtedly a great human capital management system. It is easy to configure and can be flexibly integrated with the organization's ERP solution. There is little to no training required for employees to use the software - both the desktop version as well as the mobile application. Moreover, it allows employees to connect to each other better on the organization's social network that this software provides. It is best suited for large and mid-sized organizations that have reasonably complex workflows and reporting structures. Darwinbox is less appropriate for relatively flat organizations that have simple workflows and the work involves frequent interaction among employees. In such a case, the use of such an expensive HR tool can be avoided.

SmartRecruiters

I highly recommend SmartRecruiters for all organizations to make job searches and applications smoother and easier. This application is currently well suited for this. I find it easy to search and review the job posting, job description, and criteria. It even shows the direct hiring manager and hiring recruiter. This allows me to send a separate email to either one if I had questions that were not answered directly on the posting.

Pros

Darwinbox

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

SmartRecruiters

  • Organization - SmartRecruiters is not so busy that I cannot easily tell what I am looking at. Everything is easy to navigate and follow intuitively.
  • Workflow - SmartRecruiters allows me to set up logical connections to automate subsequent fields in job creation. This aids in accuracy of job creation to match our payroll system, plus makes the process of creating a new requisition/ad faster.
  • Approvals - Approvals of job requisitions and offers could not be simpler.
  • Customization - There is very little that cannot be customized and/or branded to fit my organization's needs, including connecting to my other business platforms.

Cons

Darwinbox

  • A small improvement in the UX could be to automate the process of informing the entire organization about an employee's birthday. Presently, the HR manager has to manually send such an email. Sometimes misunderstandings happen when important greetings are missed when the HR manager is on leave.
  • There is just too much data on the Attendance screen. Perhaps, from a UI perspective, this screen could be improved. Also, there should be a feature to recall the leave application if the employee changes his plan and the leave is yet to be approved.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SmartRecruiters

  • Not having feature of referral data, who has referred
  • Another problem is that in [the] emails section it shows 'company name' field will show as Smartrecruiters vs. the name of our agency that will make confuse to [candidates]
  • Major problem of this is that it does not support api in the free version

Our team is currently on a free tier as we only hire a handful of people per year. With that said, I would not switch if the low usage tier was paid. We have several years of data and candidates in the system and they have continued to make the product better. I discovered SR years ago from their community management and customer services efforts, which were outstanding. They care about their users, and they're passionate about making them successful. They've definitely evolved to become more enterprise focused, but the free SmartStart versions still blows away competitors. Plus, they've got some kickass t-shirts

Its very intuitive in nature and also the amount of steps required to fill a New Hire form up to the point of position closure is very seamless and so I think it makes it more robust as compared to the other players in the market. So yes it deserves a 9 rating.

We haven't had to use SmartRecruiters support very often because the product works quite well. We did have a few issues with some customizations and it took us a long time to talk to someone who could understand what we were trying to do and help us troubleshoot the issue.

Alternatives Considered

Darwinbox

Darwinbox is a very powerful tool for managing the HR processes of a large organization. It offers a number of unique facilities like the social network module, mobile application version etc. As compared to other software, it offers more utility in the sense that one integrated tool can be used for multiple purposes. It is easy to configure and requires no prior experience from a user's perspective. It provides sharp insights for effective decision making to manage talent in the organization.

SmartRecruiters

I've really enjoyed using SmartRecruiters, but these other ATSs that we've checked out offer better reporting features and price points. Over time, we may be transitioning off of SmartRecruiters to one of these ATSs because the price is a set price where SmartRecruiters has employee-based pricing model. Also, these other software products offer better reporting features that would eliminate some of our manual tracking process that we're currently doing.

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.

  • In terms of ROI, SR helped our business greatly in returning precious time to my productivity in business management, as well as my team's, so that we could get back to the main work we were hired for. The SR process did most of the heavy lifting.
