What is the definition of HRIS?

Human Resources Information System (HRIS) is a set of software and processes designed to automate and optimize human resources management within an organization. It is an integrated platform that centralizes, processes, and analyzes personnel data. As a Canadian HRIS provider, SIGMA-RH offers comprehensive solutions that place HR professionals at the core of the company, providing them with a comprehensive and detailed view of human resources.


What is the purpose of an HRIS?

Operational Efficiency and Task Automation

By automating repetitive tasks, an HRIS frees up time to focus on value-added activities, thereby increasing operational efficiency within companies.

Data-Driven Decision-Making

With an HRIS, access to reliable and up-to-date data becomes a reality for leaders. This availability enables informed and strategic decision-making regarding personnel management, reinforcing the organizational structure of the company.

Improvement of Employee Experience

An HRIS significantly improves the employee experience. This system facilitates access to HR information and services, making processes smoother and enhancing employee engagement and satisfaction at work.

Compliance and Security: Managing Sensitive Data

In a world where data security is essential, the HRIS proves to be an indispensable tool. It helps companies stay compliant with laws, such as Law 25 and PIPEDA in Canada or GDPR in Europe and ensures secure management of sensitive data.

What are the types of HRIS?

There are primarily two main types of HRIS. SIGMA-RH's solution is deployed in SaaS mode, but we offer the option of on-premise deployment.

Cloud-based HRIS (SaaS)

  • Hosted on the provider's servers and accessible online.
  • Less maintenance concerns, automatic updates.
  • Subscription model typically based on the number of users.

On-Premise HRIS

  • Hosted locally on the company's servers.
  • Total control over security and customization.
  • Often requires a dedicated IT team for maintenance and updates.
