About ELMO Software

ELMO Software is a cloud-based solution that helps thousands of organisations across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom to effectively manage their people, process and pay.

ELMO offers a comprehensive suite of cloud HR & payroll software solutions that can be configured to whatever your organisation requires, and are available within a single dashboard and single user interface. We help organisations automate and streamline operations across the following areas: HR Core, Payroll, Recruitment, Onboarding, Performance Management and Learning Management. ELMO is also ISO 27001:2013 certified, meaning that information security is prioritised at all levels of the business and is a core ongoing and evolving aspect of our operations and services.

With a mission to create best-in-class technology accessible to all workplaces, ELMO is constantly evolving. Our innovative solutions are at the forefront of a disruptive technology industry, driven by the transition of organisations towards online systems which automate processes and aggregate information in new and intelligent ways.

ELMO’s software applications are multi-tenant, multi-user, on-demand application providing true SaaS delivery. Our applications require no special hardware, no software maintenance, and no network administration. This removes many of the costs and headaches associated with large-scale software implementations, provides seamless integration with legacy HRIS, and provides the added benefit of rapid, painless upgrades as new features are released.

ELMO’s modular solution approach also enables organisations to begin their talent management journey according to business priorities, comfortable with the knowledge they can seamlessly integrate additional modules as their HR needs mature. Existing ELMO solutions can connect to many popular third-party applications so that you can automate tasks, streamline processes and be more productive.

Very happy with the software and the service offered by ELMO

Reviewed on 3/24/2022


The implementation was seamless and the staff at ELMO go over and above to ensure you get the most out of the system. We have gained the most benefits out of the Onboarding, Learning & Performance modules.


Some limitations in the rostering software but ELMO are very proactive in continuously developing and improving the software

Elmo LMS

Reviewed on 9/20/2022


Easy for users to use when selecting and completing modules


Difficult & time consuming to set up
Requires prior knowledge & skills of HTML coding
Build platform confusing
Desktop and Mobile must be built separately - duplication
Mobile has no working flash, plain text only so user experience not engaging
Restrictive on videos, pictures and file attachment size

Response from ELMO Software

Thanks so much for your review, Jen. We are glad that you find ELMO's Learning Management System easy to use. If you ever need any more help, your system administrator can reach out to your Account Manager for support and additional training to ensure you get the most out of the platform. Kind regards, ELMO Team
