Just like seemingly every aspect of business, human resources departments can benefit from the latest technological advancements. Updated and modernized human resource information systems (HRIS) can provide back office support, make entities more efficient and cut costs, according to the Society for Human Resource Management.

"HRIS vendors have evolved offerings to keep pace with shifting workplace trends and technologies, giving HR technology leaders new deployment options as well as new functionality for mobile users and social media applications," explains the organization.

For many businesses, investing in payroll services and related technology upgrades in a time of economic hardship and uncertainty may seem unnecessary, but these systems can streamline an entity's workforce and financial needs as they aid in recruitment, payroll management and other employment issues.

The newest HRIS incarnations also come with aspects relating to mobile devices and social networks as a means of reaching new and potential workers.

According to Jim Torrence of Human Resources IQ, one of the top advantages of HR software is that these systems help automate several functions for HR professionals. These include monitoring important dates for employees and managers such as performance reviews and sending thank you notes when resumes are submitted.
