ERP/HRIS
Enterprise Resource Planning is an industry term for large, often multi-module software applications that manage many facets of a company's operations, including product planning, parts purchasing, maintaining inventories, interacting with suppliers, providing customer service, tracking orders, and managing resources and financials. SAP, PeopleSoft, and J.D. Edwards are some well-known ERP providers. Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) are similar to ERP applications but are aimed specifically at the management of a company's human resources.
