Human Capital Management ERP
ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems serve as the backbone that enables the management of staff, equipment, and budget to facilitate business operations. Depending on the type of industry and the specific needs of an organization, there are a variety of ERP solutions to enable the following functions:
- Human Resources
- Manufacturing Management
- Inventory Management
- Purchasing Management
- Quality Management
- Sales Management
- Supply Chain Management
The trend recently has been towards more modular ERP systems that allow organizations to only purchase and leverage the functions that they require. The HCM module allows companies to manage and track one of its most important resources: the workforce. From recruitment through payroll and staff development, an integrated HCM module can help companies find, recruit, and manage the best talent. Example functions managed by HCM systems include:
- Time and Attendance
- Benefits Administration
- Performance Management
- Organization Design Enablement
- Employee Self Service
Ever since the emergence of automated payroll and workforce management processes in the 1970s, there have been an increasing number of software providers in the HCM space. Today, many of the top providers offer web-based and mobile-based solutions that can be accessed anywhere at any time. Major players in the HCM ERP space include: Oracle HCM, Infor CloudSuite HCM, Workday Human Capital, Kronos, Dayforce HCM, and SAP SuccessFactors HR. Many of these solutions are built to be configurable and flexible to meet the needs of most organizations. There are also several HCM ERP vendors that have developed platforms that target specific functions within the spectrum of HR, such as training or recruiting.
