Time Bank data integration applicationAre you offering partial solutions to your customers?

Every pay cycle, your customers manually enter employee data from multiple disconnected systems. They use complex spreadsheets to make calculations and adjustments for payroll, compliance and financials. This not only takes up valuable time, it poses the risk of human error. When your system requires customers to do time-consuming and tedious work, it feels like only a partial solution. Time Bank helps make your solution complete.

What Is Time Bank?

Time Bank is a data integration application that extends your product by connecting your system(s) to other employee data applications and automating client-specific pay policies. Time Bank integrates multiple human capital management systems such as payroll, HR, accounting packages, or time and attendance. On a scheduled basis or with a single click, the application collects data from the source system; automatically applies a client’s business rules, mappings or other logic; and transfers the results to the target system. Time Bank integrates with more than 250 different systems and accommodates data exchange with web services, APIs, database integration, XML and ASCII-based files. Time Bank can be deployed as a hosted or premise-installed application.
