Out of the many systems available in the market (and having used many of them in the past) Darwin for me stood way above their competitors for a number of reasons.


The system is user friendly and uncomplicated even if you are used to other systems, and you get outstanding value with so called market leaders offering an inferior product for considerably more as well as charging for extras this beats them hands down.


On top of all this the support and guidance you receive from your account manager is informative and helpful without being too pushy and sales focused. The support team and product is fantastic and I would recommend it to any business of any size.

Hewitts, UK

DARWIN has been extremely impressive and very user friendly. The features are relevant and easy to use which makes life much easier than other products we have trialled. Changes to the layout and any additional fields which are specific to our business are easily created and altered making it bespoke to our business.

Along with a great product, the staff have been helpful, polite and professional throughout the process – all in all, a pleasure to work with. The system has added great value to us so far, so a big thank you to the Team.

DiamondOs, UK & Europe

We decided to go with DARWIN over Microdec and the other software suppliers we had spoken to because our consultants found that your products were easily understandable, incorporated everything they require and enabled them to work much more efficiently.

The demonstration of your software quickly convinced our consultants of the benefits it would bring to our company, and how it would streamline our business and services.

When I read through the section on their partnership with Microsoft and access to MS’s labs to continue research and development of the software, I decided to download the trial version. The interaction with the software was excellent, and exactly what I was looking for – very user-friendly, and the appearance is similar to  Outlook, so you feel as if you are on familiar territory. Navigation through the software was very easy to learn on my own because of the clarity and thoroughness of the KnowledgeBase.

The integration with Outlook is fantastic – so simple and I don’t have to go through any other steps to update my records – it does so automatically. Plus, I didn't have to download or purchase any other software to enable the email solution, like the other recruitment software I tried.

I was happy to discover that the forms could be customized to suit our needs as well. That
is really what sealed our decision to purchase DARWIN. Plus of course, the fact that the software is web-based so we can work from any location, and we can store an unlimited amount of candidates or clients.

After sales support was also very good, considering the time difference. In summary, I am very pleased with the purchase and comfortable that the support is there should anything go awry.

Darwin has provided us with an efficient, easy to use recruitment database which completely fits
our business needs.


We were very impressed with the level of service we received during the trial, installation and going live stages of the process, as well as the superb after care service. It was simple to make changes to the layout and add additional fields to make it more suitable for our agency.


The staff have been extremely helpful throughout the whole process and are always very prompt at coming back with any additional requests we’ve had. I would certainly recommend the database to other recruitment businesses.

Associates Group

After looking at various solutions for our software, DARWIN seemed a clear winner. The time they spent with us before we committed to buy was impressive. Their sales people were keen to understand exactly how we worked.


The care given by team in ensuring we were able to use the system to its fullest potential once we had it was equally impressive. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys.


The interface seemed instantly familiar and feels a lot like an extension of our MS Office suite. They offer an affordable, valuable service.


Well done DARWIN !


Darwin software review

Kaye Phillips, Director
Archway Personnel, UK

After some searching around for a CRM system, we talked to several companies, Darwin being one of them. They were professional, on time, expert in their knowledge and their system functionality was second to none.


Our sales person was the most proficient advisor we have experienced - she was knowledgeable, friendly, warm and natural with a great talent for her system and a great way about bringing us on board she 'listened to the customer' !


The biggest USP for us, apart from the cost, was the totally free SMS service, no other provider we talked to offers this or links in to 'Linkedin' the way that this CRM system does, another great 'USP'.
We are very excited to be in partnership with
such a good provider.

Debbie Eustace & Lucy Smith
The Fresh Start Group, UK

The Outlook integration is superb
while its ‘recruitment friendly’ features help save time. After testing and using the software it became obvious that the thought and process that has gone into its creation, is truly aimed towards making recruitment consultants more efficient.  


DARWIN is so quick and easy, that when looking back on using previous CRM systems I suddenly realised just how much time and energy was wasted.

Mike Chatha and his team are continually extending the software with useful features, and as a company they are clearly committed to building long term relationships.


We hope to stay with DARWIN for a long time to come.

Neil Daly, Managing Director
Hamilton Consultants, UK

We have now had 2 solid weeks of using many of the tools in DARWIN and are finding it a pleasure to use and very strong asset to our business.


Thank you for your patience and continued support, we have used many systems in our careers to support our recruiting needs and have to say the system has been the easiest to grasp just by using the training videos and training tools supplied. Great job on developing a tool for our industry that can be managed quickly and easily.

DARWIN’s software is amazing. It is going to save our recruitment department a lot of headaches and time. We needed something user friendly that would work quickly and efficiently with maximum features for storing and recovering data.


I am convinced that their software is the solution for us and it will be a complete success. In addition the company is professional, prompt, extremely helpful and very supportive.


Darwin recruitment software reviews

Marcy Murdoch, Recruitment Manager
Training Express, Spain

The team of Directors at Connect HR & Recruitment Ltd reviewed multiple software solutions with various companies before agreeing to go ahead with the system.

Our decision was not only based on price, which is key to a small business like ours, but also on the flexibility of the system and how we see it working for us. We go live with the system next week & fully envisage it to make us much more efficient.

Our dealings with the team so far, from the initial point of sale contact, the IT team and the MD, have all been very helpful and professional.

I have recently completed a global search and evaluation process to select a Recruitment CRM for our IT consultancy here in New Zealand. We have selected to use DARWIN over its competitors because of its superior ease of use, functionality and flexibility to meet our specific requirements.

With 15+ years experience in the industry, I think this is the best technology advance since e-mail replaced the fax.

Having worked for two leading Recruitment Software Providers and having been a recruitment consultant end user of others, I feel that DARWIN is one of the most innovative pieces of Recruitment Software that I have either used, sold or seen.

Having worked in recruitment for over ten years using a variety of systems, I have been blown away with the functionality of DARWIN and the fact that you can actually design your own front end.


I would highly recommend the system, especially to start ups like myself, and all of their support staff have been excellent as they delivered the system exactly how I wanted it to look and work.
