What Is HRMS?

“HRMS” stands for Human Resources Management System. It refers to a suite of software that organizations use to manage internal HR functions. From employee data management to payroll, recruitment, benefits, training, talent management, employee engagement, and employee attendance, HRMS software helps HR professionals manage the modern workforce. Also called a human resources information system (HRIS), HRMS systems put information about a company’s most valuable assets in front of the people who need them. Yesterday’s HR software and HRIS systems have become today’s human capital management cloud solutions.

HRMS Cloud Transformation

Given the importance of HR to keeping the organization running efficiently and effectively both now and in the future—and with tools and data to help them make the right decisions and demonstrate value—HR professionals have become some of the most vital people in the C-suite. With a deeper understanding of cloud and digital technology, they can make significant contributions today to create and maintain a productive workplace tomorrow using human resources management systems in the cloud.

To align with the business, HR must modernize and transform. To be an agent of change, HR needs to choose the right HRMS in the cloud to manage the entire employee lifecycle. With disparate, on-premises solutions, core HR functions such as payroll and benefits are processed in separate HRM systems that aren’t integrated with those used for talent management, workforce optimization, and learning. This disconnect hinders ease of use, diminishes the user experience, and makes data difficult to analyze to obtain valuable insights.

Vital talent management efforts are hampered by a lack of integrated information across all HRMS systems. And HR activities are carried out less efficiently and with less insight than they could be if a single system of record and a cloud-based deployment model were in place.

Therefore, HR organizations that are still using disparate solutions are missing out on the very benefits that could prove their strategic worth to the enterprise, including the following:

Reduced HR costs

While HR has traditionally relied on IT to maintain their on-premises HR systems, mature, cloud-based HR solutions are changing that. Cloud-based HRM solutions are easy to configure and adapt over time, giving control back to HR while significantly reducing the number of employees needed to deploy, manage, and support them.

Rapid HR innovation

For an on-premises HRMS, any upgrade is a major upgrade—one that requires significant time and expense to implement across multiple machines. In contrast, the cloud offers huge reductions in deployment times and easy, instant access to updates and innovation. As a result, your organization reaps the benefits much more quickly

Engaged employees

The best HR solutions are the ones that employees, managers, and HR staff use in equal number and with equal success. That means cloud-based human capital management (HCM) systems. HCM is revolutionizing workforce management processes with unified employee experiences, connect-anywhere capabilities, and role-based functionality for the entire team.
