The manual input of user data is not just a tedious and time-consuming task for IT departments, it is also redundant. The usual process is as follows: The Human Resources department collects all information about new or existing employees in some kind of HR management system and then, as part of a complex and somewhat unreliable process, relays the data to the IT department, who then proceeds to update the IT systems with the new or modified data.
Basically, what this means is that the process of updating data is done twice every time a person joins or leaves the company. Sounds like a waste of time and resources? That’s because it is. It is an unnecessary expense in terms of labor and finances that could very well be avoided – and nevermind the risk of errors that rises significantly when there are many people involved in conducting each process twice!
Benefits of the Plugin
The tenfold Import Plugin eliminates all of these issues entirely. It uses the data from the HR system to recognize changes and responds to them appropriately and, best of all, automatically.
