Appraisd has an API that is available to all customers at no extra fee. An API is a way for another system such as your HRIS to communicate with Appraisd over the internet.
If your HRIS has an API or has the capability of interacting with an API, then it's highly likely that you can sync data from your HRIS to Appraisd.
In practice this typically means whenever you add a new employee or make a change to an employee on your HRIS, the same employee will be added or modified on Appraisd almost instantly. This saves you the admin time of making the changes twice and helps to ensure your Appraisd account is always up to date.
Please note that integration is not the same as Single Sign On, which allows users to log in to Appraisd without needing a separate password .
In some cases, you may need to write a small programme to connect your HRIS with Appraisd. Thanks to our API documentation this should be straightforward.
