What is iCE HRM

iCE Hrm is a Human resource management system for small and medium sized organizations. It has a rich UI built with PHP and Java Script. The system is implemented with a modular architecture which makes it extendable and customizable easily. With a smaller code base and highly readable object oriented Java Script and PHP implementation, it won't take much time for a smart developer to understand and start making changes to iCE Hrm core and support modules.
