To greatly oversimplify things, companies adopt HRIS solutions because it makes their jobs easier and more efficient. From what I've seen, most companies reach a tipping point where a payroll system by itself no longer cuts it. Typically, smaller companies are not the ones purchasing a full-blown HRIS--it is the mid to larger-size companies that are looking at HRIS. Companies adopt these systems because they are looking for ways to improve efficiency and accuracy. Sure, there can be drawbacks if you don't select the right system for your organization or don't implement it correctly. However, if you perform the right amount of due diligence through vendor comparison, reference checks, etc., then that shouldn't be an issue.
