"E-HR is a function of HR that is concerned with the use, management, and regulation of electronic information and processes within an organization.
E-HR is different from E-HRM (Electronic Human Resource Management) and HRIS (Human Resource Information System) which are uses of technology. More specifically, E-HRM is a system that allows management and employees access to human resource related information and services through an organization's intranet or web portal. HRIS refers to enterprise resource planning software that streamlines human resource functions such as payroll.
In contrast, E-HR is a function of human resources that requires cross-functional knowledge and collaboration between multiple departments, most notably human resources and information technology." [Electronic human resources. Wikipedia]
