We solve different problems like we don't need to maintain the records of employees like attendance and employee salary-related data stored on the cloud and it is easy for the managers to maintain and user friendly. We also maintain all the tax and salary related information into the Darwinbox. Darwinbox also helps us for the leave related activity which we can easily sync with the third-party application.
  • Attendance related activity
  • Recruitment realted things
  • Salary and Tax related things
  • Professional Dashboard
Darwinbox provides multiple functions and features related to Human resources and I Like the best where it maintains Attendance records and employees smartly. Darwinbox helps us to brings all the organization level activity on one platform which helps the management to take the crucial decisions. Sometimes it hangs and does not function properly due to an internet connectivity issue.

Mostly attendance and leave management. Updating attendance and applying/tracking leaves have become a lot simpler.
  • Easy to use and navigate.
  • Simple and intuitive interface.
  • Covers all HR needs in one software.
  • While the desktop version looks great, the mobile app needs a lot of improvement in terms of speed and UI design.
  • The payroll modules also need some work.

I am able to see all the HR details about my employment through this app:

  • Manage my organization profile.
  • Add my certificates and details.
  • Process my performance evaluation.
  • Apply leaves and fill the timesheet.
  • Search any employee of the organization and find their role, team, hierarchy.
  • View any tax letters, HR letters, etc.

  • 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.

Since October, we needed to switch to a different HR Processor since the previous product we were using was expiring. We came across Darwinbox from recommendations. Darwinbox has been integrated with our payroll system to provide the best automated process. At times we use this feature for all of our employees.
  • Maintaining Attendance from payroll with HR.
  • Employees self portal to ask for PTO or to check hours.
  • User Interface is user friendly for our employees.
  • 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.
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.
  • The interface is very easy to manage.
  • The payroll system is fast and efficient for HR.
  • The commodity of a very well packaged system is helpful for our employer.

  • Since we did switch from another program Darwinbox has been very easier for our employer.
  • The price is a bit high for a mid size company level but its not the end of the world.
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.
