Author(s): Dr. Punam Ahlawat
Abstract: Implementing a new Human Resource system is usually a little less painful than other business software systems. This is because the change is mostly confined to HR staff. The change no matter how little or big, is stressful and prone to resistance. Management should not downplay the importance of training and possibly process and procedure changes. These strategies can help companies select the best fit solution to meet their needs and ensure a successful HR system implementation. Finding a good HR system is as critical as selecting any other business software system that supports and enables the company’s business goals and strategy. A successfully adopted and implemented Information system does not automatically guarantee full benefits. Information systems integrate and automate all business processes of an organization with the aim of increasing operational efficiency and improving the accessibility and flow of information across all departments. It is important that IT is operated as planned and thus provides the real-time information with a desired level of process integration. Any IT system pushes an organization toward full process integration and solves the fragmentation of information. Employees should be made aware of the benefits of new HR software, how it affects them personally as well as how the company can benefit. An ERP (Enterprise resource planning) software consists of many modules with each module is integrated with the major functional area of an organization.

The core aspect of the paper is an over view on the selecting an HR module of ERP software considering all aspects affecting the ERP system selection process.
