Darwinbox Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators
Darwinbox is an HR platform that takes care of all HR needs across the employee life-cycle, from recruitment, onboarding, employee management, payroll, leave & attendance, transfer, and performance management to exit management. It acts as one platform to streamline the recruitment and on-boarding process and has an evolutionary talent management system catering to every performance philosophy. Darwinbox Open APIs integrate with G Suite, Microsoft AD, and recruitment platforms.
In March 2020, Darwinbox launched its new lighter Android mobile app, which was as low as 7 MB. With apps occupying more the ~70% of device memory, it is challenging app developers to be more efficient. These staggering usage patterns are what drove Darwinbox to push out the lighter app with dynamic delivery to generate and serve personalized feature delivery for each user's profile configurations. These features were specifically focused on addressing the unique needs of its users, and to help client organizations ramp up adoption for all employees, ranging from the ground-level workforce to executives.
Darwinbox Recent Developments
