Applications like Employee Life Cycle management, Leave & Attendance, Payroll, Performance appraisals, Training or Recruitment integrated into one integrated HRMS system combined with a Employee Self Service Application enabled online access to employee services.
This resulted in huge improvements in productivity, Speed, accuracy and employee motivation.

Employee and HR productivity go up significantly with the use of such systems ensuring quick ROI for the effort put in.
