APIs (application program interfaces) allow different systems to communicate with each other. APIs are an alternative to using files such as .txt or .csv, XML or database connections for data transfer. Many HCM vendors are opening up APIs or web services to allow clients or vendors to exchange information with their modules. APIs either expose information to be retrieved or provide standards for inserting data.
We work with APIs/web services and are constantly expanding API connections with our partners.
Our applications can do a lot more than just transfer files. We use APIs to exchange data for many of our solutions, and as our partner’s products open up more options to transfer data in/out of their platforms, we are ready to deliver even tighter integration.
