The use of HCM and payroll applications helps extensively in decision-making and offers a clear picture of the overall resources of an organization. Human Capital Management (HCM) is defined as the process of acquiring, training, managing, retaining employees for them to contribute effectively in the processes of the organization. Some features of human capital management systems include performance reviews, goal management and compensation planning, as well as the automation of time collection and absence management. The human capital management software along with information technology makes the task easy and more efficient to manage workforce acquisition, management, and optimization of people in the organizations.
The term “payroll” actually refers to the list of employees that receive compensation from a company. However, most companies generally use the term to refer to the money that is paid to the employees or the records that detail how much each employee has made. Payroll may also refer to the company, department, or software that is used to process paychecks and taxes or to the process of calculating and distributing employee paychecks. Payroll software is being installed by companies as it is economical and improves the efficiency of the compensation and review processes.
