Abstract: All institutions today use Information system (IS) tools for their effective functioning of the system. Be it branded or customized tools, the institutions use them for their daily activities to be automated and to run the system error free, and to provide quality data, reports and decisions. The success of the application of the Human Resource Information System (HRIS) depends on the knowledge level, skill sets, motivation level, and the deployment of human resources responsible for effective usage of the system. Howbeit, from the study, it is implicit that there is an influence of demographic features on the application of Information Technology and usage of Information System tools. The study was carried out to show that the efficacy and effectiveness of the usage of the IS tool in any institution not only cater to the need of the operational level and middle level managers, but also the strategic needs of the institution. However, awareness about the effectiveness of the tool has to be strengthened for the maximized usage of the tool. This paper vividly shows the impact or the influence of demographic features on usage of IS tools.
