HRMatrix At A Glance

Good: Project-management functionality, ability to manage and track employee expense reports, fostering of employee collaboration.
Bad: No payroll functionality offered (only available as third-party integration), does not integrate with time clock devices.
Bottom Line: An online HRMS that does more than just manage day-to-day HR tasks: Companies can also manage their own projects and assets.
