What is HR software?

HR software brings together and automates disparate and often time-consuming, manual HR processes in one simple system called Human Capital Management (HCM). These different HR processes include payroll, time, attendance, recruiting and onboarding. Confusingly, HCM can also be known as a Human Resource Management System (HRMS) or a Human Resources Information System (HRIS), although there is no difference between them.

Think of this online HR software as a new set of intuitive tools, giving you and your team more control over all of your HR functions - so that you can help maximise the potential of your employees.
