I was living in a spreadsheet nightmare and it was made all the more complex because the majority of our Principal Investigators are self-employed. It was like managing 80 different companies at once - all without the requisite technology to support me. To say it was arduous and work-intensive would be an understatement - Nora Thomas, Human Resources Manager PAVIR

How the integration works

PeopleGoal utilizes ADP's Workers v2 API to retrieve information from ADP Workforce Now to PeopleGoal. The Workers APIs support the management of workers in an organization. A worker is a person who performs duties and responsibilities for an organization. In that capacity, a worker fills one or more positions via a work assignment. For a given work assignment, a worker is related to the organization as an employee or contractor. The Workers APIs can be used to obtain a list of all workers in an organization and to get information about work assignments.

PeopleGoal ADP Workforce Now integration

To set up the connection with your account's API you will have to share an API credential with us which usually can be generated by your Account IT admin, if you have APIs activated in your account. Most likely you will have to engage an integration specialist from ADP to generate the APIs in your account.

Our Development team will trigger a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) with PEX certificate, in order for the ADP integration specialist to generate the API credentials:

  • Client ID
  • Client Certificate

The API credentials will give us access to your workers data and we will be in position to establish an automated connection between PeopleGoal and your ADP Workforce Now Account.
