What is HR software?

HR software is a human resources software solution that combines several systems and processes. Designed to help small and large businesses manage their employees and data.

You may have heard it called an HR system, an HRIS system, or HR management software. Some people even get techy and call it a Human Resources Information System (HRIS) or Human Capital Management (HCM) software.

At BrightHR, we keep it simple. Our cloud-based HR software lets you manage employee data, absence, staff holidays, shifts and rotas, expenses, and training—all in one secure and user-friendly digital platform.
