tenfold Import Plugin


Having to enter user data is usually a redundant task for IT departments, as the information regarding new or existing employees will commonly already be available in the human resources department; they record it into a personnel management system, followed by complex and unreliable processes, until the information is finally passed to the IT department, who then update the changes in the IT systems.

This means that the process of updating data is conducted twice each time a person joins or leaves the company; this inevitably leads to unnecessary manual and financial expenses (which could actually be avoided) and holds a very high potential for errors.

The tenfold Import Plugin eliminates these issues entirely: It automatically uses the data from the personnel management system to recognize all changes made by the personnel department and responds to them appropriately.
