What is HCM (human capital management) software?

HCM (human capital management) software, sometimes called an HRIS (human resources information system) or an HRMS (human resources management system), is a technology application that can help employers manage and look after their employees, usually supporting a range of HR functions, from payroll and benefits administration to recruitment and performance management.

With a modular system, you can include whichever functions your organization needs. HCM software records and stores data about employees in a database. Leading solutions like Sage People offer advanced analytics, helping employers to gain insight into the best way to recruit and retain talented employees, as well as handling HR admin and giving employees access to their own data and tools, for example, to request holiday using a mobile app.
