Abstract: The fast growth in communication and information systems around the world generally and in East Africa in particular, has made it easier for major institutions to better organize their databases. In the case study of the Rift Valley Railways, the objective was to develop a cost effective computerized human resource management system. The researchers developed a system which was user-friendly and could be readily adopted by other organizations. A database was developed to store the user’s information. It had the capacity to improve on its services and to attract more clients who use the service. It also had a database storage system which could act as a backup and support the preliminary system. It would be capable of storing the user’s information separate form daily reports of the organization hence keeping information from the human resource department separate from that of the public, a key security measure which is crucial in information technology in the present time. These were achieved by the use of informatory research tools in combination with the research methodology, with tools such as system development life cycle (SDLC), prototyping and Joint Application Development (JAD) consequently software for instance PHP in hand with MYSQL server it was possible to accomplish the task. This was expected to increase efficiency and ease the work for the human resource department of the Rift Valley Railways. The project was deemed to be feasible and was expected to improve customer goodwill and employee motivation if implemented. The company was expected to have a greatly enhanced competitiveness among international business enterprises and hence be in a position to provide better services to its clients and employees.
