Integrations 101

In the last decade there has been much change in the tech world. One of those changes is the increase in popularity for systems with a robust API (API is the acronym for Application Programming Interface, which is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other).

Many customers are looking for the perfect tech stack, and rightly so, there are many benefits that come from having a wholesome tech solution where the symbiosis between systems gives you a seamless solution.

So, what is an integration?

This is the process of linking together different computing systems and software applications physically or functionally, to act as a coordinated whole. Essentially, building your own ecosystem of solutions and platforms to meet the needs of your business. This is also commonly referred to as your “tech stack”

Many software providers have seen the opportunity to build a community or ecosystem for its users – commonly known as a ‘Marketplace’. Here you can choose which solutions you need and build them into your own ecosystem.   

What are the 4 reasons you should consider using integrations?

  1. It makes things easy– one system for everything. The user experience is much simpler with what appears like one system with all the functionality you need. This removes the need to manage multiple sites/logins for the different solutions that form part of one business process.
  2. Automation will save you time and increase productivity and remove manual errors. Your team will no longer need to manually copy and paste data from one system to another. An integration allows for data to automatically flow and be shared across systems. For example, pay and charge rates flowing from your job card straight into your payroll and finance systems, removing the need to data entry.   
  3. Standardise your processes– with a system integration you have oversight over the complete process, allowing you to implement best practice methodology, especially when your team is spread across multiple offices.
  4. Have more fun– by eliminating administrative tasks, which are now completed through the integration. Your team will have more time for value adding tasks. Doesn’t that sound fun?  

RatesCalc’s API, allows you to integrate RatesCalc into any operational system. Payroll systems’ integrations are a little more complex however we can already integrate with some of the most well-known payroll systems with more integrations currently under development.

RatesCalc can, quite simply, integrate with any system!

RatesCalc connects your front and middle/back-office systems, working as a bridge between the two and sharing/transferring data that is 100% accurate and will keep you compliant!
