FinancialForce and ADP team up on new HCM integration
Over the past couple of years, FinancialForce has been moving further upmarket into the enterprise – a group of companies with more stringent requirements when it comes to people and payroll processes. We noticed many of our customers were also ADP customers who use the market leading payroll platform, and ADP’s additional HCM capabilities, to manage large global workforces.
Today, at FinancialForce Community Live in Las Vegas, we announced a partnership with ADP that will make it easy for customers to integrate the company’s leading HCM solutions into FinancialForce. The integration will further strengthen our overall offering and help customers gain more value from their technology investments.
With this new partnership, we’ll continue to invest in the things we do best in HCM – talent management and skills management – while ADP does the heavy lifting on broader HCM capabilities, tax credit services, benefits administration, and more.
ADP payroll will be integrated into FinancialForce Accounting in the coming months, and we’re going to begin collaborating with ADP on critical product roadmap decisions – including introducing new capabilities that will enhance employee and resource management and absence tracking. The end result will be a comprehensive enterprise-grade HCM offering that enables customers to blend best-in-class HCM will the leading cloud ERP platform for the new services economy.
This is a big deal for both companies; we’re confident that our customers will be very pleased with the new capabilities they’ll be gaining in the coming months.
Holger Mueller at Constellation Research was equally supportive of the news when we told him about it.
“Businesses welcome it when software vendors partner, as long as the end result is a mutually-stronger portfolio. Enterprises prefer vendor-based integrations that are maintained by both sides across the joint solution, eliminating the need for in-house integrations and the risk of key pieces of software not working together. These strategic partnerships allow customers to focus more on what matters most for their business.” – Holger Mueller, VP and Principal Analyst at Constellation Research
We’re already in talks with customers and will be offering a seamless migration service to make it quick and easy to get up to speed on the new ADP HCM offering.
