Axiomatic has significant experience integrating with other systems using API’s including the development and set-up of appropriate middleware. Previous interface projects have ranged from rather simple interfaces to custom-built solutions with a complete staging area with two bridges between various systems to ensure the data was “cleansed” and coupled with update logging, data quality validation, and consistency.

Why Integrate?

    • A tailored solution is precisely aligned with the client’s specific business needs, ensuring that the solution fits perfectly into their existing workflows and processes.
    • Customization allows for the optimization of the API to handle the unique demands of the client’s operations, leading to more efficient and streamlined processes. This reduces the time and effort required for integration and ongoing operations.
    • Custom APIs can be designed to scale with the client’s business. As the client grows or their needs change, the API can be adjusted accordingly, ensuring that it continues to meet their requirements without requiring significant overhauls.
    • Scalability can enhance performance by ensuring that the API is neither over-engineered nor underpowered, leading to faster response times and more reliable data exchange.
    • By delivering precisely what the client needs without unnecessary features or complexity, customized APIs can be more cost-effective, reducing both initial implementation costs and ongoing maintenance expenses.


Integrating various systems with payroll software is not just a trend but a necessity for modern businesses aiming for operational efficiency and accuracy. By creating a seamless flow of information between payroll and other essential business functions, companies can reduce administrative burdens, enhance accuracy, and ultimately, improve employee and client satisfaction.
