The ADP payroll platform is an incredibly robust platform, offering tech” that many other mom and pop payroll companies simply cannot compete withMany businesses have a local town favorite for performing payroll services, but the likes of ADP, Surepayroll, and upstarts like Gusto have made it challenging to compete. Added to that are the ADP Payroll integrations setup for allowing an API connection from payroll to business management platform, PSA, CRMs, and ERPs; it is simply hard to compete with that. 

What exactly is this API integrations lingo and what will it do for me? 

Every organization has platforms that simply do not communicate with one another. This could mean double, triple, even quadruple entry by staff members with no guarantee that the data manually typed over was typed the same or at all. API integrations connect platforms in a way that allows users to see and input information that can then be seen across multiple platforms. 

Establishing a native API for each platform to connect and conduct those data entry activities is ideal, but many platforms do not have native API integrations. A team like ours is required to develop an API integrations between the two platforms if both platforms allow for it.

Do ADP Payroll integration services create all setups equally? 

Whether it’s ADP API integration or integration with other platforms, projects like these can be incredibly challenging to manage.  There are several players involved and sometimes very unsatisfied clients if the expectations are not set correctly from the get-go.  

Fortunately, API integrations are very routine for our ADP payroll integration services team, but we also perform a lot of API and software development work for all sorts of platforms in need of a conduit between the two independent platforms.  

Sometimes, we receive requests that require more development time due to the organization’s additional requirements, but we always strive to work with our clients to ensure that all expectations are met on both sides.  Here’s what to expect: 

Design of the solution

– Client is using a business management platform

– The business management platform or ERP has an API that allows you to get user data that provides timekeeping information

– Client would like to update ADP with time-keeping information obtained from their business management platform.

– ADP has a documented API

Proposed Solution

– We will write a small console application that runs and periodically checks for changes.

– A timestamp will be saved in a log file that will be used to check the last update.

– If the user timestamp is higher than the timestamp recorded, relevant information will be posted to the ADP API.

– Success and failure logs will be recorded

– Option to trigger and alert, possibly via email or post to a monitoring API on failure

– Option to send a daily mail to summarize updates

– Service can be run via Cron or Windows Scheduler depending on OS

 

ADP Payroll Challenges

ADP Payroll integration services can run into some problems if time tracking is performed differently on the business management platform or ERP than on the payroll platform. Below is how we design the console application to meet the challenge. 

By design, it was requested that we join any two time periods together that have a less-than-10-minute period between the end of the previous time and the start of the next time. Here is an example below: 

 

John Doe: 

Check In  Check out 
08:00  10:00 
10:05  12:00 

The business management platform report would read this as 3 hours and 55 minutes, but by design the system would submit this to ADP Payroll as 4 hours. Therefore, the times, by design of the customer, would rarely match the Business Management platform (Karmak in this example) report and cannot be used as a base point. This submission of times and the discrepancies were based on the design or human error on the client side when this situation occurs.

Valuable ADP Payroll Integration Services: How to Integrate ADP with Other Business Platforms Summary 

The purpose of technology is to make things easier for ourselves, but that goal is lost when technology only complicates workflow. Using API integration for tedious tasks like payroll helps simplify processes that make even the most laborious responsibilities a breeze.  

For programs such as ADP Payroll, integrations are important, but so are clear conversations with the developer setting up the solution. It is crucial to communicate these challenges up front to avoid unnecessary headaches later.
