We can help!

The LINK® manages all your integrations with a single software standard. This means standardized methodologies, standardized capabilities, and standardized support for your customers.  

The LINK is the best choice for all of your customer’s Time & Attendance and Payroll integration needs!


Piece Rate Calculations

 A thorny issue for integration because they:

– Are Often Stored In Separate Systems; 
– Can Be Updated Frequently; 
– Have Custom Rules Per System;
– Have Custom Rules Per Customer.

The LINK handles these issues gracefully by maintaining a connection between the piece rate repository and your software. Whether piece rate is stored in the ERP system, another system, or even the Controller’s Excel spreadsheet, The LINK will handle it.  
The LINK’s .NET extensibility allows for custom rules to be applied per transaction, ensuring you will meet the piece rate calculation needs of the system and the customer. 

Cross Reference Data

Which can be difficult to include because:

– Data is stored in separate systems; 
– Data may require calculations or transformations to be utilized; 
– Accessing the cross-reference data in the other systems may require API, DLL, or other advanced access methodologies. 

The LINK has broad support for API’s, DLL’s, web services, REST services, Azure/AWS cloud services, and more.
It allows you to access the related data and roll it up into your product offerings through a graceful integration. 

Alerts

Based on user-defined criteria:

– Employee just crossed over to overtime hours;
– Employee did not clock-in/out according to schedule (requires schedules);
– Production milestones;
– Machine maintenance milestones; 
– Your event here.  Event criteria is user-definable. 

The LINK has support for custom criteria – so no matter what the alert criteria is, if they can describe it, then The LINK can probably support it. 
Alerts can be stored in the database (for reporting) and/or go out as emails or text messages.  Alerts are in real-time – just like your customer expects them to be.

Fringe Benefit Calculations

Extra benefits, supplements to salary 

Prevailing wage in government contracts (as determined by the contract and the locality);
Calculations for perks such as use of a company car, subsidized meals, memberships, etc. 

The rules governing how fringe benefits are calculated can be quite complex and based on many factors.  
The LINK can:  cross-reference, join data, lookup data, and apply the necessary formulas to make fringe benefit calculations.
Whether required because of a government contract, or simply offered as a perk from your company, TheLINK has your calculations covered. 

Customization

Fields, Reports, Rules, Reformatting

Reformat data for import or for targeting your Time & Attendance/payroll system, or other systems.
Link disparate systems together: labor data collection, time and attendance, payroll, ERP, reporting, home-grown, etc. 

Stand out from the competition by answering “Yes” to customization questions.  For some prospects your software looks wonderful and would be a great fit if only it could handle a few custom features.  (Custom features that your competition is not accommodating).

Compatibility

Real-time integration with systems and the ability to maintain the integration even if the customer switches to a new ERP or other system.
