Today's human resources departments are increasingly acting as business partners, which calls for a closer alignment of HR and technology. In light of this, it's clear that the use of manual processes to carry out HR tasks like performance appraisal, remuneration, recruitment etc. can have a negative impact on the efficiency with which businesses operate. Human resource information systems (HRIS) have been implemented by several companies to help their HR divisions function more effectively. In light of HRIS's growing importance and Pakistan's education sector's rapid expansion, this study investigates the factors driving its adoption by universities, HRIS's effect on boosting university output, and the difficulties inherent to implementing the system. This study uses a qualitative methodology to investigate the perspectives of human resources (HR) professionals at three fully automated, one moderately automated, and three manually operated higher education institutions in Pakistan. It is clear from the study's findings that HRIS is widely regarded as a game-changer in terms of streamlining operations in the human resources departments of universities. Existing higher education institutions' positive attitudes and desires to adopt HRIS reflect the widespread belief that the system is essential.
