So now you’ve determined you could benefit from automated data transfer:
Ask your self the Easy Question: Can We Develop the Data Integration Ourselves?
While your internal IT staff may be able to produce a workable interface, production time, learning curves, programming, testing, documentation, and debugging are very time-consuming; tying up your business-critical resources for an extended period.
Now ask your self the more strategic Questions: Should We Devote Critical Resources to Building Data Integration?
Our proven Time Bank has 25+ years and 25000 installations behind it. Our technical staff is dedicated to continuous investment in keeping current on system version changes in the industry and focused on application integration — period. Having internal resources become subject matter experts on your connecting systems vs. focusing on business-critical tasks can prove to be very expensive.
And Who will Support the Data Flows when Vendor’s Systems Change?
Software upgrades to accommodate system version changes can pull your IT staff from existing projects and strain resources when a simple modification turns into a project.Our dedicated and experienced staff of professionals has established processes to deliver the necessary Time Bank updates when your version changes to avoid interruption of critical payroll or other data transfer.
How Time Bank works
For many data flows, Time Bank can run as an automated scheduled event. For others, Time Bank works with a few clicks of your mouse to transfer your critical data and business rules from one system to another.
At its most basic level, Time Bank works in a three-step process:
- Reads data from source system
- Applies your specific business rules and other data translations
- Sends the results to the destination system
What makes Time Bank unique is its flexibility to send and receive data directly from web services, database tables, standard flat files (ASCII), XML and other formats, and power to reliably apply complex calculations and data translations based on your company’s policies (e.g. seniority rates of pay, FLSA compliance, multiple site processing, etc.).
