How the ADP Workforce Now Integration for Sage Intacct Works

ADP and Intacct are not only the top names in human resource management and financial management software, respectively, but they both are also born in the cloud. This means that they come equipped with a native SaaS (Software as a Service) architecture that is easier to build off of and modify for additional functionality. This includes powerful and flexible APIs (application programming interfaces) that let you bridge the gap between separate databases and workflows, allowing information to synchronize seamlessly between apps.

Leveraging a Middleware File Transfer in ADP, the Workforce Now connector for Sage Intacct passes General Ledger, timesheet and various employee data points between your HR and payroll software and your accounting system, including:

  • Employee ID
  • Employee Title
  • Pay Rate
  • Department
  • Original Hire Date
  • Termination Date & Type
  • Home & Mobile Phone Numbers
  • Work Email
  • Office Location
  • Manager/Reports to

This includes any changes made to their personal and work-related data fields made in the latter, as well as when you create a New Hire profile from scratch. With the push of a button, all of this information can be updated in real-time and reflected in both systems simultaneously.

General Ledger

The ADP General Ledger Interface (G/L Interface, or GLI) allows you to create journal entries directly in Workforce Now, while the integration with Intacct allows you to seamlessly transfer this data to your accounting software’s GL journals. Even user-defined fields (UDF) will be formatted and transmitted to Sage Intacct, and you will receive an email notification once the sync has been completed successfully.

Outbound Time

Employee Hours from individual Timecards in ADP Time & Attendance can be pushed to Intacct along with any related Project and Tasks variables. Any combination Regular, Overtime and Doubletime hours can be transferred over without having to manually reenter any data – users simply have to select a Pay Period and designate which dates to use in Sage Intacct.
