Generally, the terms HRMS & HCM are used synonymously, but slight differences exist between the two owing to technological advancements. The journey from HRMS and human resources (HR) solutions, with a focus on database management, to the modern, strategic, and employee-centered HCM has been gradual. Let’s deep dive into HRMS Vs HCM.


  • An evolution from the previous HRMS systems provides a comprehensive software suite used by enterprises to oversee internal HR proceedings.
  • Analysts favored HRMS as it described the HR software suites during the early 2000s, the era of on-premises solutions.
  • From handling employee data to administering payroll, recruitment process, benefits, training, talent management, employee engagement, and employee attendance, HRMS has helped HR professionals adeptly manage the contemporary workforce. It makes crucial data about a company’s valuable assets readily available to those who require it.
  • The term HRMS is still in use for cloud-hosted systems but, it is not prevalently used for applications built natively for the cloud. Even if HRMS and HCM are used interchangeably, a web search will give information regarding both.
