MHR partner with iSAMS

iSAMS integration

Our partnership with iSAMS Management Information System (MIS) delivers an integration that saves HR teams time with automated data exchange across the iTrent and iSAMS systems.

This significantly removes the need for data duplication and improves accuracy and expenses, ensuring data transparency.
