Techopedia explains Human Capital Management Software (HCM Software)

Human capital management software is essentially a combination of different software. Instead of having payroll software, time-sheet software, productivity analytics software and so on, human capital management software integrates all those functions into one platform. Moreover, HCM software claims to be able to help an organization plan future staffing needs by sharing information with other enterprise software such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. HCM software may be sold as a stand-alone application or as part of a larger enterprise solution.
