Data integration is a crucial component of any automated solution and should include the capability to integrate information from both the Microsoft Payroll/Human Resources software and the time and attendance software. The TimeMaster solution includes a seamless bi-directional interface into Microsoft's Great Plains system. The bi-directional interface eliminates duplicate data entry along with costly errors while reducing administrative costs. Sierra Workforce Solutions has over ten years experience in developing and supporting integration with Microsoft's Great Plains payroll and human resource systems.
Employee Transfer takes data from the Microsoft Great Plains Employee Maintenance screen and writes directly into TimeMaster. Information that is transferred includes Employee ID, name, address, birth date, and employment history.
Time card Transfer directly writes all employee time data into the Microsoft Great Plains Payroll Data entry screen.
Sierra does not utilize the Integration Manager or any import/export process when transferring timecard data or employee information. Import/export is a labor-intensive and inefficient process due to additional steps increasing the possibility for errors and complications. When you use an Integration Manager, data does not transfer both ways, therefore requiring redundant and costly data entry in one of two systems.
With the TimeMaster Interface, data is transferred directly into Payroll and Human Resources with a push of a button, eliminating wasted time, resources and money.
