Best HR Management Suites Software from G2Crowd

G2 Crowd, a peer-to-peer business solutions review platform, recently released its G2 Crowd Grid for HR Management Suites. G2 Crowd scores products and vendors based on reviews gathered from their user community, as well as data aggregated from online sources and social networks. To be included in the Grid report, products must have received a minimum of 10 reviews/ratings. Products are then ranked by customer satisfaction (based on verified user reviews) and market presence.

What is HRMS?

HR management suites, also referred to as Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) are software systems that offer functionality across multiple HR software categories through a variety of software modules. According to G2 Crowd, HR management suites are used to manage all HR information within an integrated, modular system. Companies use HR management suites to manage high-value HR functions, such as recruiting, performance reviews, and employee training, within a centralized system that streamlines HR management and reporting. HR management suites are most commonly implemented by HR departments within enterprise companies.

“Due to their modular design, HR management suites can be customized and organized according to organizational needs. HR management suites may be purchased as a fully integrated suite or as individual modules that may be paired with one or more best-of-breed HR software products. HR management suites commonly offer a combination of core HR software, recruiting software, performance management software, and corporate LMS software,” G2 Crowd added.

Similar to Talent Management Suites, HR management software can also smooth the flow of information across HR, payroll, and benefits administration. This sharing of data can enable your business to better innovate and your employees to better perform. It doesn’t only help HR administrative needs however, talent management is a business strategy, so the software simplifies business processes and allows room for improvement in the top talent in the company.

According to the Grid report, to qualify for inclusion in the HR Management Suites category, a product must:

  • Offer a series of modules that can be purchased separately
  • Include multiple modules that can integrate together to form a unified system for HR management
  • Provide functionalities across more than one HR software category distinction
