Benefits of Integrating Human Resources Management (HRM) and the Payroll Databases.
The Human Resources Management and Payroll are completely different business processes; however, they depend on each other for accurate and timely flow of information for their business operations.

Therefore, any changes made to any aspect of the database are entered only once. There will be no need to make a duplicate entry of the changes.
