Question: My organization uses payroll and HR from one of the big payroll processing firms. We also use specialized performance management software. Now we are thinking about applicant tracking and maybe a learning management system as well, and we would like to have employees and managers access the data. We are looking at specialized systems but it has been suggested we should get one comprehensive system. Are there advantages to one integrated HR system?

Answer: An organization’s needs for information management systems evolve, usually in a delayed parallel with the growth of the organization; growth in size, complexity and over time.
