People-Trak limits the task of double data entry between HR and payroll with our custom interfacing services. Whether you choose to move data from People-Trak into a payroll application or move data from your payroll system into People-Trak, we have simple import/https://www.people-trak.com/files/export routines and the capability to connect directly to the payroll system's databases using an ODBC connection. Our programmers have successfully created hundreds of interfaces between People-Trak and other systems. (Interfaces are not limited to payroll software only.)
Interfaces are built based on your individual specifications. The specification can cover a variety of features, functions and fields. You determine everything from the direction of the data, the method used to exchange the data, the fields to be interfaced and their translations.
In the event you purchase an interface, a People-Trak support representative will contact you to assist you in identifying the direction of the interface, the data transfer process, and any other special considerations with the interface. Then a People-Trak representative will review the field mapping with you.
After the field mapping has been approved and signed it is sent to the People-Trak Technical Services department to develop, test and release the interface. The interface programming and release process typically can take between two to three weeks from the approval of the field mapping. Contact your Support Representative today for further questions about the process, or to chat about your company’s needs.
Q. What’s the difference between using People-Trak’s import feature, and purchasing a custom interface?
A. The custom interfaces provide one-click synchronization between your systems. The interface can be scheduled to run at intervals you choose.
Imports are convenient when you have a simple file to load. The main value of an interface is that they can handle more complex files, and may be designed to perform translations, calculations and data comparisons during the import process. A simple import, on the other hand, makes no decisions. You design an import yourself, and it writes exactly what it finds in the file to destination fields in People-Trak. The import tool can handle several file types, but custom interface can handle more, can traverse database tables with queries, can handle multiple files, and can even connect with web services. With an import, you are responsible for the data. With a custom interface, you gain our insights when designing it, and we are responsible for verifying it works well, and for supporting it in the future.
