Darwinbox

I would recommend Darwinbox to anyone who is looking for a modern Human Resource Management System (HRMS) for a small to medium size organization, it is power-packed with quite a lot of feature sets that'll help to eradicate and bring down the spending and efforts of managing multiple platforms. But Darwinbox is not that suitable for a larger organization with more than 500 people since there are several other enterprise-grade HRMS solutions that are more robust, scalable and well architected for the larger organization.

Zoho Expense

Honestly probably works well for almost any company. I have used Expensify before and while Expensify may be a bit more polished, Zoho Expense is wonderful. Plus it integrates with all my other Zoho products including Books and CRM.

Pros

Darwinbox

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

Zoho Expense

  • The program will notify users if they have entered a duplicate charge.
  • Once the end-users understood that receipts were mandatory, attaching those receipts has become second-nature. The app makes it very easy to do so.
Margaret Wood | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Darwinbox

  • The user interface and navigation seems a little outdated - it has got tones of features and capabilities but that is let down by the poor UX
  • Migration from the legacy HRMS takes a bit of time and effort, not a super smooth transition given that Darwinbox has limited types/methods available for importing the data from other HRMS while migrating
  • Poor Customer support - Logging in the ticket is easy but getting it done within the SLA is a dream for their team and us as well. The support team is not that responsive and communicative.

Zoho Expense

I've used Concur in the past for managing and submitting expenses. When comparing what I know about Zoho to Concur, Zoho seems to be a more simplified tool focused on simply managing expenses, inputting, tracking, submitting and getting reimbursed. Based on what I know, Zoho gets the job done with no frills.

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.

Zoho Expense

  • Expense reporting was a nightmare during the first year in our office. I was looking for a program that was user-friendly, affordable, accurate, and most of all -- integrated with QuickBooks Desktop. Zoho does all that. They also have a full suite of other apps that are able to be integrated.
