A HRMS (Human Resource Management System) is a combination of systems and processes that connect human resource management and information technology through HR software. A HRMS may help to revolutionize a workplace. The automation of repetitive and time consuming tasks associated with human resources management frees up some of the companies most valuable employees and allows the focus to shift to culture, retention, and other highly impactful areas.
HRMS or HRIS?
The term HRMS is sometimes used synonymously with HRIS (Human Resource Information System), but an HRIS is really a type of HRMS. Functionally, however, there is no real difference in the type of systems offered going by one title or the other. At one time, a HRMS was a more complete automated solution to human resources management than software labeled as HRIS or even HCM, but rebranding by many companies has worked to make the different software titles generally indistinguishable.
