OpenEmployee Masterfiles and Codes Synchronization to other payrolls or systems

Keep separate systems up-to-date by sharing common information like names and addresses, benefits, pay rates, and job information. Synchronization of personnel master files and other tables transfer common information electronically from an originating system to a receiving system.  When possible, we use a three-stage interface process that reads information from the originating system, validates the data, translating as necessary, and then transfers the information to the receiving system via upload or via file(s) suitable for import.
Examples: Abra HR/benefits interfaces for Timberline, MAS, and other payrolls; Abra, Timberline, or MAS Payroll to time clock or other data entry systems; Timberline (or other non-Abra payroll) checks to Abra ESS
