Human Resources Management System (HRMS)

Definition - What does Human Resources Management System (HRMS) mean?

A Human Resources Management System (HRMS) is a type of information system (IS) that is designed to manage an organization's computerized and automated human resource (HR) processes. It is a combination of hardware and software resources that hosts and provides most, if not all, of a HR department's business logic.

A HRMS is also known as a Human Resources Information System (HRIS).

Techopedia explains Human Resources Management System (HRMS)

A HRMS is deployed on an application server that provides in-house and/or remote access to all authorized personnel. As part of a standalone or enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, a HRMS depends on HR management software, which is integrated with HR-specific business processes and features that give HR staff members the ability to perform routine operations, such as employee records management, payroll, attendance management, and performance evaluations. Each feature may be available as part of the primary HRMS or added as software modules/components.

In most environments, a HRMS is integrated and connected with other supporting systems, such as time tracking, attendance, finance/accounts and administration.
