The market for human resources software is expanding quickly, as companies produce more solutions and employers buy them up in an attempt to keep pace with the competition.

Regardless of size, all companies should centralize HR workflows to maintain efficiency. The proper HR software can help companies address issues like regulatory compliance through automation, record-keeping, and talent-sourcing tools. Currently, most solutions are emphasizing mobile access, talent-management and internal collaboration functions.

Below are some of the best HR software solutions, including cloud-based systems and those with a very affordable price point.


Namely is an internet-centered platform devoted to core HR and talent management for expanding businesses. This solution handles payroll and benefits management, as well as tracks the hours that employees work, performance reviews and other documentation. Namely also provides an integrated social news feed and customizable reports for individual and team analytics.

The system is built to be versatile and user-friendly. Furthermore, clients receive round-the-clock customer support through a committed account manager.


JazzHR is made for a specialized use, specifically candidate tracking and interview management. This software solution helps businesses post jobs, review applications and handle the interview process by way of a centralized, real-time solution. Supervisors can develop custom recruiting stages with automated actions and include various stakeholders in the process with differing levels of access.

JazzHR can also post directly to job boards like Indeed and leverage built-in SEO tools to write the optimal title and job description. The software solution also provides social recruiting, worker referral systems, candidate screening, background checks, resume assessment, interview outlines and staffing calendars.

While it doesn’t have a dedicated mobile app, platform interfaces are automatically optimized for the device used to access them.


Cezanne provides thorough HR administration tools that work effectively for smaller businesses, but are also intended to scale up with future growth. The system is cloud-based and available as a monthly subscription.

The main module, “People,” delivers features for coaching and development, disciplinary decisions, regulatory compliance and document tracking. Clients can decide to include on any or all additional modules, including attendance management, performance management and candidate tracking. Not like bigger vendors, Cezanne provides each module for the same fee per user, reducing budgetary concerns.

Beyond its principal features sets, Cezanne also supplies analytics tools and supporting solutions for payroll. The platform is available to workers and supervisors via mobile app for Android and iOS devices.


This system covers employee management and time tracking, and also features a worker self-service portal. Candidate tracking is accessible as an add-on.

While EffortlessHR isn’t one of the more dynamic systems out there, it is one of the more affordable, with a flat monthly rate derived from the number of administrators, as opposed to the quantity of workers. This means the solution is flexible and can grow with your team without progressing up through pricing tiers.
