A HRMS (Human Resource Management System) or HRIS (Human Resource Information System) is a combination of systems and processes that connect human resource management and information technology through HR software.

Many HR professionals are choosing a HRMS to handle all their HR activities electronically. Having a great HRMS has numerous benefits. In the end, productively levels tend to increase as a result of choosing the right HRMS.

Functions of HRMS Systems

The function of the human resources department involves tracking employee histories, skills, abilities, salary and their accomplishments. When an organization takes care to reduce the manual workload an organization performs, they choose to replace those processes with various levels of HRMS systems. Executives within a HR department either rely on internal IT experts or third-party vendors to develop and implement an integrated system. Each module performs a separate function within the HRMS. The functions current HRMS systems can perform include:

1. Payroll
2. Database for employee information
3. Attendance records
4. Performance evaluation
5. Benefits administration
6. Learning and recruiting management
7. Employee self-service
8. Employee scheduling
9. Tracking of employee absenteeism
10. Analytics


Developing and implementing the right HRMS for your company is important. While it is certainly possible to take care of these functions manually, an automated system ensures there is plenty of time available for the human resources staff to develop and maintain the data that goes into those systems. The most important thing to remember is that HRMS systems are not “one size fits all”. Just as each company is different, so are the systems available on the market to choose from.
