HR Software Overview

What is HR Software (HRMS)?

A Human Resources Management System (HRMS), sometimes called a HR Information System (HRIS), is a type of information and reporting system that helps a business to automate and manage human resource processes.

A HRMS is used to perform business processes and HR functions, from managing employee data and payroll to attendance management, performance evaluations and the monitoring of training, as well as supporting strategic business decisions. A HR Management System automates a lot of the traditionally time-consuming HR administrative tasks.

Who uses HR Software?

Any company with employees will have a HR Management System in some form or another, ranging from manual documents and spreadsheets to comprehensive cloud-based HR Management Systems designed to handle all HR processes.

A HR Management System is used by HR professionals, managers and employees.

Does a small business need HR software?

As soon as you have a single employee, your business will need to manage HR processes. As your team grows, the problem of managing them and keeping records up to date can become a struggle. It’s not ideal to have sensitive information stored in multiple folders or systems.

The more employees you have to manage with a manual HR system, the less efficient it becomes. The sooner you put your HR processes in one place, the easier it is to manage, giving you more time to focus on growing your business.
