Question: "We’re in the process of looking for human resource information systems (HRIS) software. We need to track training, salary increases, EEOC data and performance evaluations among other things. Any suggestions on what to look for? What type of HRIS software do you use? Would you recommend it? What about cost? Is off-the-shelf software adequate, or is it better to have it customized?"—Hilda, Florida


The HR Serve system is the best tool we've ever seen for HR, regulatory compliance, training (all types), testing and performance tracking. Very easy yet extremely powerful. There is a number on the site that you can call for a free demo.

Many accounting packages offer a type of system that you are looking for. One of the best that I have worked with is through Sage Accpac. Their HRMS software package offers many of the functions you are looking for, and interacts directly with Accpac's accounting package.

I would also highly recommend Sage Software. Their tech support is one of the best, if not THE best.
