For the most part, HR software is wonderful. Every day, applicant tracking systems (ATS), Core HRIS, and payroll systems make recruiting talent, managing employees, and payroll much easier for HR professionals.
But all HR apps have one glaring weakness. Data in each app is in disconnected silos in the cloud. This forces HR teams to re-enter data between HR apps manually. For example, it’s not unusual for companies to re-enter new hire data from an ATS into Core HR and then again into payroll. The problem quickly magnifies depending on how many people a business hires each month and how complex the HR onboarding process is to accommodate the many best of breed apps used by HR departments.
Manually re-entering data between HR apps is among the biggest time and money-wasting drudgeries facing HR professionals each day. Manual data re-entry is inefficient, vulnerable to manual errors, and with data integration—no longer necessary. But the bigger question is what kind of data integration should you pursue?
As companies discover the benefits of data integration between HR apps, they are also learning how challenging integrations can be. To begin with, no two businesses are alike. Companies often have custom fields and specific things that they would like to track between apps that make standard integrations impossible.
Further, no two HR apps’ APIs are the same. Data mapping transformations are often needed—as well as specialized scripting language to pull and push data between apps. In too many cases, internal HRIS teams don’t have the bandwidth or expertise to integrate HR data between apps. No wonder so many businesses continue to juggle paper and manually re-enter data, no matter how soul-crushing it is to HR professionals. That is, until now.
Modulus Data has created a suite of prebuilt connectors for the most popular HR apps that makes data integration easy. In fact, these data connectors require no internal IT resources to create an integration. Modulus Data goes beyond traditional integration scripting that involves scheduled file transfers to provide next-generation integration that shares HR data in real-time. Further, prebuilt connectors reduce integration time to approximately four weeks—even when including custom data mapping.
Modulus Data, a Canadian company with additional offices in the U.S., only focuses on HR data integration. It’s all they do. And HR professionals are taking notice. This year Modulus Data won ADP’s best customer testimonial at the ADP Marketplace Partnership Summit.
As Matthew Korn, Human Resources Manager at UNOde50, explains: “If you are looking to seamlessly modernize your HR processes, and you have ADP Workforce Now®, you must get the Modulus Data Connector for your ATS. The tools are inseparable. The team at Modulus Data was extremely knowledgeable and made the integration effortless. And they will work to meet your needs.”
A Director of HR applications at a regional bank clearly expressed the time-savings that HR teams can experience from data integration. “Modulus Data’s integration is saving us 20-40 hours per week—essentially a full-time employee. We’re getting great and very positive feedback from recruiters and from operations. They don’t have to touch the records anymore or juggle forms for manual re-entry. Folks are happy to give up the drudge work. There’s a feeling that this integration really makes a difference here.”
