Businesses typically use several systems to manage their data. However, this multi-system approach can make it challenging to synthesize data in a way that provides business intelligence. Therefore, many organizations use a platform that aggregates data from many sources into actionable insights for better decision-making.
Our Application Programming Interface (API) makes this possible by enabling data transfer between payroll/HR and other systems that can aggregate multiple data points. APS is excited to announce the release of our Developer API to automate the exchange of data for a more seamless, efficient flow of information and more detailed metrics.
The goal of APS’ Developer API is to give organizations easier access to their data for internal reporting needs. With the ability to sync payroll and HR data into other platforms, our customers can make more confident decisions.

Power BI Connector
Power BI users now have an easy way to connect their data in reports without the time-consuming task of loading it into a data warehouse or having developers on staff. The only limit to creating reports using APS data is a user’s imagination and Power BI skills.
For example, HR wants to automate reports with employees and their wages across multiple EINs in a specific format, with visibility limited to certain managers. HR can accomplish this using the Power BI connector and row-level security.
Power BI users can:
