The GEMS Payroll & HR modules comprise a fully integrated system designed to help you manage important aspects of human resources, such as applicant and resource tracking, risk management, and teacher certification; as well as flexible pay processing options.

Information is shared between the two modules, reducing duplicate data entry and the number of repeat entries within the database. In addition, payroll information is shared with the GEMS General Ledger Suite.

“Shelby County’s first use of HRMS was very successful… The success was due to the extensive time commitment and dedication of our staff in Human Resources, the Payroll office and Information Technology along with support from the Harris ERP staff.”
