Project proposal
ABC Plc is a leading retailing company in the global market. It aims at providing best quality
products to the customers, which ranges from necessity to luxury products. To remain
competitive in the market the company has to maintain a large base of customers and take care of
their needs. It focuses on increasing its productivity by emphasizing on the performance of
employees and whether they are capable enough to meet the requirements of the customers. Both
customer and employee related information is vital for successful operation of the company.
Thus, it maintains a Human Resource Information System (HRIS) to store, manipulate and
extract information pertaining to the employees. With the help of the software, the company
takes care of number of activities that are related to financing, human resource, payroll and
management. It helps ABC Plc to plan an effective HR cost structure as well as control them.
The effectiveness of the HRIS can be measured with the help of a rigorous research examining
the information system of the company. The main aim of the project is to decipher the
effectiveness of HRIS in the company with the help of primary data analysis. However,
secondary data are also used in order to understand the importance of HRIS in the contemporary
world of management (Kovach and Cathcart, 1999). This specific area of research is very
important and interesting, as it highlights the performance of the company based on its human
resource. Presently, HRIS has become an essential part of management of every company as it
gives easy access to data pertaining to performance and productivity of employees. The main
issue that is highlighted in the research is related to the ineffectiveness of the HRIS due to lack of
dedicated resources, poor quality of data, unrealistic time frame and complexities pertaining to
management of the software.

Theory and Practices
According to Tannenbaum (1990), HRIS is defined as the technology based system that is
employed to store, acquire, analyze, manipulate, distribute and retrieve relevant information
pertaining to human resource of a company. He has highlighted that in hyper-competitive era,
organizations have felt the need of employing information system to control human resources.
Companies have used information system and human resource as the two main strategic weapons
for becoming competitive in the market.
According to Hall, Mark and Moritz (2003), HRIS aims at providing opportunities to the human
resource professionals to improve their performance strategically so that it can increase the
productivity of the company. HRIS automates and devolves the routines prepared for human
resource jobs aligned for the line managers. It provides with the time needed by human resource
professionals for directing their attention towards the strategic level tasks such as talent
management and leadership development (Kavanagh, Thite and Johnson, 2011). According to
my understanding, HRIS not only helps in determining the performance and productivity level of
the employees, but it also identifies the areas of improvement. Infor
