What is a HRMS?

A Human Resource Management System or a HRMS is a Cloud-based HR suite used to automate and manage all Human Resource (HR) processes. The HRMS manages the entire lifecycle of each employee. These processes may range from recruiting the right staff to performance appraisals, payroll, vacation leave and sick-leave, announcements and so on.

Who uses a HRM system?

The primary users of a HRMS are the HR team. However, it benefits every member of a company. Employees are given some autonomy with the self-service option to book their holidays, take sick-leave and log their attendance. Having access to the amount of used and available sick days and vacation days comes in handy for employees who do not have to contact HR for such information. Managers benefit from the performance evaluation, reporting as well as monitoring attendance amongst other things.

HR professionals have a lot of load taken off them with the recruitment and applicant tracking functions, payroll, employee onboarding, expenses management and the list goes on. This in turn gives them a lot of free time to focus on other important tasks.
