Philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates made this case for automation years ago, when he said: “The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.”

His view has reflected conversations with HR decision-makers, who are in various stages of implementing HR management systems (HRMS).

In fact, many companies prefer the consistency and centralised control offered by all-encompassing end-to-end HR management systems which include all HR technology modules, as evidenced by the Best HR Management Systems category winners and finalists at the HR Vendors of the Year 2018 awards in Singapore and Malaysia.
