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.

We use Darwinbox as a primary Human Resourcing solution at our organization. Darwinbox allows us to manage all out HR-related items including managing our employee data, benefits, reimbursements, Identity proofs, special allowances, timesheet management, payroll and expense-related data all in one place. There's hardly an HRMS that can do so many things more other than Darwinbox. Post the implementation of Darwinbox at our organization we have been able to centralize employee management all in one place which has helped our human resourcing team and our employees to get everything they want all in one place.
  • 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
  • The user interface and navigation seems a little outdated - it has got tones of features and capabilities but that is let down by the poor UX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.
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.

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.
