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.

WinSearch

WinSearch works for a small recruiting company with low amounts of emails. Companies, where recruiters rely on heavy email, should avoid this due to delays and slow tech support fixes. Security and data breaches have occurred, and would negatively impact any company.

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.

WinSearch

  • Winsearch provides email which is easily overwhelmed resulting in hangups and painfully slow searches. This is fixable with workarounds, but still not worth the wait if you seek a reliable software.
  • Winsearch is susceptible to hacks, and security issues. The system can go down for as long as a week as a result of a hack. The resulting interruption of business makes this software package not a good buy.

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.

JobDiva has more functionality, and costs a bit more. I have done a demo of JobDiva, but haven't been an active user.

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.

WinSearch

  • WinSearch database CRM is reliable and works well. Their email system negatively impacts my business. Security breaches and hacks could last 1 week and are very harmful to customers.
