HRM software simplifies HR tasks such as recruiting, onboarding, self-service portals, employee benefits, compensation, training, and data management.

Employee data is traceable and manageable by HR software. There are features of HRMS that everybody prefers to use:

1. Cloud-based vs. on-premises

HRMS platforms are cloud-based. The software is sold by a vendor and access is through an application and data is available through a web browser or smartphone.

Vendors provide the IT department with HRMS software and it is managed by the HR team in the office.

2. Core HR

The HR modules maintain the data of employees, and it is a network of functionality by reporting and security in the HR system.

The functionality can rate by:

All employee data such as name, address, and age is maintained;
Access rights to employees;
The time marking of future-dated and past-dated files;
The system is configured by the laws and regulations of the Middle East;

3. Time and Attendance

The HR team tracks absentees and counts the number of working hours on a timesheet. Make sure that system adheres to policies and practices.

The system should be capable of these: 

Able to configure Time management, time data recording, absences, and absence catalogs;
Prepare timesheets and schedules in minutes;
Provision of timekeeping for employees through mobile phones;
Reporting of missed shifts missed clock-outs, and overtime;

4. Recruiting

HRMS helps in finding and recruiting new employees in a short time. Many think hiring is an easy process. But it is not.

HRMS software has the following features: 

Job description library for specific job positions;
Posting to job sites;
reports, tags, and custom groups to track candidates;
support advanced digital signatures;
ability to add attachments to offers; and

5. Onboarding

An onboarding module eases the onboarding process and captures the first impression of a new hire. Beyond that, new hires fill out the forms and read the policies.

Here is the checklist of Onboarding requirements by managers:

The direct process from an applicant to new hires to onboarding;
Landing pages that feature company information, videos, and organizational charts;
Employees can complete and sign forms and policies;
New hires can complete the paperwork before their first day;

6. Performance Management

Report making for all needs;
Dashboards display charts and graphs for actions;
Reports are mailed to employees;
Restricted access to top-tier management;
