    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.

    EmpCenter is really well suited for companies with minimal variety in time keeping needs. Certainly somewhere that has fairly regular work schedules and operational needs the system would be programmed for and meet those needs quite well. I think they assert themselves as a product specifically for those more complex companies, and I believe it is one of a few products available for companies with many employee types and complex work schedule and pay needs, but because of those complexities each have their own specific customizations I feel it is difficult for the company to then manage the different products that end up existing. Each ends up being unique so applying large scale changes doesn't work well as something we may request and need if applied over EmpCenter in general may cause problems for another company. Therefore everything has to be done on an individual basis and is more time consuming and costly.

    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

    WorkForce Suite

    • A lot flexibility in configuration of the system
    • works well with other systems. We were able to collect data from another time system, Avaya phone systems and even a point of sale system with not a lot of difficulty.
    • They know their product and integration points. They were able to troubleshoot problems with hardware time collection devices quite quickly. We found the devices they sold to be quite durable.
    • Out of the box they have more reports than I would have anticipated. Creating new reports was sometimes a task if it was complex but there were usually similar reports you could use as a starter template

    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

    WorkForce Suite

    • One feature I would like to see on EmpCenter is a vacation calendar that monitors all vacation requests for all employees within a group.
    • EmpCenter is not wholly compatible with other softwares and there are occasions when time data does not properly translate.
    • Moreover, I would like EmpCenter to automatically provide timekeepers with delegations from managers. This way if a manger does not want to grant the timekeeper authority it is easier to rescind, rather than tracking down all managers to grant timekeeping privileges.

    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

    WorkForce Suite

    Deputy was a LOT easier to use, and I personally liked it more. It did not make approving payroll at the end of the week as easy as WorkForce, and Deputy did not show any PTO balances. Deputy seemed like a simpler, less in-depth version of WorkForce. Personally, I would prefer Deputy, but a lot of my colleagues disagree

    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.

    • EmpCenter has reduced the amount of time administrators are spending on payroll. Certainly it has made our entry to our pay system more efficient since we can simply load the data from the time keeping system and we are not collecting actual physical signatures and paper timesheets that must be reviewed for accuracy and completeness. The system does this for us and some automatic calculating of certain pay due that we were hand adding. However the feedback I am getting is that the supervisors feel their work has been increased greatly. They are spending more time correcting and approving time. Essentially the work we were doing in our central offices to review and correct time the supervisor must now do as they approve the time. We have now asked them to be more responsible for proper reporting and use which requires they know more about the rules and many different aspects of pay than they had before. We have employees who are union represented and get some benefits from the contract others do not receive, contract employees who have certain pay aspects in their contracts that must be known, as well as temporary employees and students who get very different pay from the other employees. While some things have been programmed for the system to know and handle, some things must be added to the time sheet to pay properly or the way time is reported is different (some clock out for lunch some don't) supervisors must now know these differences while that used to be a role that was more mine as an administrator. Now I just help them and audit and review.
