Human resources management system (HRMS) is one of the core components in any major enterprise resource planning (ERP) application suite since its earliest development. As information communications technologies progress, ERP vendors are able to incorporate more sophisticated HR functions into their products in an increasingly user-friendly manner. HRM modules in ERP suites cover a full spectrum of conventional HR functions ranging from recruitment, selection, compensation, and so on. Meanwhile, there is also an explosion of growth in the number of specialized HR software products and application service providers in the market place. The goal of this article is to provide a current, non-technical review and comparison of major compensation software products and services developed using Internet technology, and to offer some insights on understanding emerging HRIS trends and new strategic roles compensation professionals play. To do this, I will start with an overview of key features of a good Web-based compensation program and main benefits of such program. I compare common and unique features in performing compensation functions offered by both major ERP vendors. Implications for HR professionals and researchers will be discussed in the concluding section.
