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.

Workstream

Workstream has been great for new restaurant openings by using the QR code on business cards and using the QR code on our marketing material as well. We had one restaurant have 17 applicant's via the QR code. The biggest opportunity was cost during the pandemic. Our franchisees wanted a guaranteed number of applicants for being charged what they were getting charged. This was not something Workstream can accommodate but this is also not guaranteed on any job board.

Pros

Workstream

  • Functionality
  • Texting feature
  • A variety of job boards to post to.

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.

  • I truly cannot think of a single aspect I'd like changed.

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.

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.
