Human Resource Management Systems are typically integrated with other applications within the organization such as Enterprise Resource Planning systems (ERP) and finance systems. The software application enables the human resource department to perform its functions through an electronic platform. These functions include recruitment, learning management, analytics, employee self-service, performance management, payroll and maintaining of employee and attendance records.
