Human resource management software: A buyer's guide

Introduction

Human resource management software helps a company improve and streamline the management of its most valuable asset: its people. In addition to core functions such as payroll, benefits, and time and attendance, today's HR tools address a myriad of workforce management needs ranging from developing employees' skill sets to capitalizing on the use of social media and mobile technology for cross-company collaboration.

The choices of different types of HR software can be overwhelming, but this buyer's guide has simplified the process to help you make a well-informed decision when buying human resource management software. Here you will learn about the three categories of human resource management tools and how these products are sold. In addition, since no two companies have the same requirements, we will help you determine your specific needs and objectives and the features that will factor into your request for proposal. Once you have a list of your must-have features and functions, you can examine some of the leading vendors and the products they offer.
