A system which seeks to merge the activities associated with human resource management (HRM) and information technology

(IT) into one common database through the use of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. The goal of HRIS is to merge the different parts of human resources, including payroll, labor productivity, and benefit management into a less capitalintensive system than the mainframes used to manage activities in the past. Also called Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) NEEDS OF HRIS:

1. Easy Access to Employee Records ± From a user-friendly dashboard, the HRIS lets you see recent employees added, monitor their work, check files uploaded and reports created. You can also get alerts on special dates such as birthdays and anniversaries 2. Attendance and PTO Tracking ± Your HRMS tool will allow you to keep track of employee attendance and paid time off. With just a click, employees can request time off, and managers can approve or decline requests. The system also keeps track of accruals and balances 3. Employee Self Service ± Most HRIS have a feature that allows employees to access the information they need. They can also fire requests from virtually anywhere, view time off balances, better understand their benefits, and anything else you decide to share with them. By helping themselves, they free time for managers and HR personnel to focus on other matters 4. Email Alerts ± You don¶t have to remember a thing! Your HRIS will do it for you and send alerts to managers when birthdays are coming up or when an employee is close to becoming eligible for a certain benefit 5. Easily Create Reports ± You can create customizable reports by creating simple queries with just a few clicks. You can also easily export these reports to common formats such as Excel, PDF, or CSV 6. Track Training Progress ± Closely monitor employee¶s training progress and allow employees to check their training status and set up their goals and work towards their training completion 7. Reduce Employee Management Costs ± One simple solution is the payroll process. The HRMS integrates with payroll systems and other accounting systems to ensure that your payroll functions will be completed on time and without errors
