Product Overview

EPAY Systems offers both a workforce management solution and a human capital management (HCM) solution. We’ve reviewed its EPAY Time and Labor Management solution in our Time Clock market. This review is on its human capital management solution.

EPAY HCM is a unified solution that incorporates all essential HR functions. It specifically focuses on medium-to-large-sized businesses that employ hourly workers.

There are several benefits:

  • Reduces costs and administrative burden (no need to maintain separate HR solutions)
  • Reduces repetitive data entry across all modules (employee record only needs to be created once)
  • Streamlines various administrative tasks, which allows HR to focus on more important functions
  • Easy-to-use interface
  • Full-service payroll, tax and Affordable Care Act (ACA) reporting options for companies with a need to outsource these functions

EPAY HCM also integrates with different solutions, such as financial and accounting systems, and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.


In addition to workforce management capabilities (please refer to our review on EPAY Time and Labor), here are some of the key features within each EPAY HCM module:
