What is an HRM System?

HRM Systems

HRM systems provide a single, centralized view of a company’s workforce by integrating a wide array of applications such as talent acquisition, benefits administration, compensation management, performance management, succession planning, and career development.

HRM is often used interchangeably with HCM, human capital management. The latter term refers to the administrative management of an organization’s people.

Why do Companies Use HRM Systems?

Where does the talent of your workforce meet with advanced technology? The answer is in a Human Resource Management (HRM) System. An HRM system, or HRM software, is designed to automate human resource business processes, transactions, payroll, and compliance.

HRM systems allow companies to focus on people management by streamlining all workforce software into one business intelligent solution.
