to Avoid Double
Data Entry

BambooHR customers can connect directly to ADP Workforce Now to send new hire data automatically to payroll in real-time.

HR professionals want to avoid double data entry between systems so they can focus on more strategic things for their company. Double data entry is inefficient, vulnerable to manual errors, and with data integration—no longer necessary.

To streamline recruiting processes, BambooHR leverages Modulus Data’s prebuilt connectors for integration with ADP. These prebuilt connectors are the cheapest, fastest, and most reliable way to connect BambooHR to ADP.


What data gets integrated?

BambooHR customers have two main requests: They want data pushed from BambooHR into ADP Workforce Now and data pulled from ADP into BambooHR.

Here are types of data that are integrated.

New Hire Data

As soon as a customer presses the hire button in BambooHR, this creates a new employee record in ADP Workforce Now with the relevant data mapped for name, address, social security number, and salary—the main fields necessary to process payroll.

Foundational Data

This means that company locations, departments, legal entities, employees, job codes, and job titles from ADP Workforce Now are automatically replicated in their BambooHR. This way when recruiters and hiring managers log into BambooHR, they see company structures they recognize and can go to work immediately on a particular job in a particular office location.

How is BambooHR data integrated into ADP?

Through the APIs. An API to API connection allows for real-time data integration. As soon as the hire button is pressed in BambooHR, data required for payroll shows up in ADP Workforce Now.

Who benefits most from data integration?

Any company that wants to improve HR efficiency by avoiding double data entry benefits from Modulus Data’s solution. Typically, customers who hire more than 8 employees a month find that they experience return on investment from time savings in the first year.

This integration solution works for businesses that hire in the U.S. as well as internationally.

Who is Modulus Data and how do we handle integration?

Modulus Data is a recognized expert in data integration for HR applications. We are the leading sellers of ATS and Core HR connectors for ADP.

Modulus Data’s prebuilt connectors run on their Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) solution, Modulus Connect. This cloud integration platform solves the problem inherent in all HR SaaS apps: the data is currently in disconnected silos in the cloud. With the Modulus Connect platform and prebuilt connectors, data is automatically shared between apps.

Modulus Data creates, hosts, monitors, and maintains the data integration bridge between BambooHR and ADP customers so that a company does not have to dedicate internal IT resources to integration.

How does an ADP client get a BambooHR prebuilt connector?

Through the ADP marketplace. As soon as a customer buys the connector, ADP sends a key with the customer’s unique API to Modulus Data to handle the integration. Clients can ask Modulus Data questions about integration before the sale, but the ADP marketplace generates the necessary API key.

How fast is integration between BambooHR and ADP?

Total integration time is usually 4 weeks including testing in a trial environment, and a go-live launch, which is handled by Modulus Data.
