When businesses expand their operations, managing an increase in staff can often make or break their success. Eliminating manual data entry streamlines HR workflow to lessen growing pains. How do these departments gain such relief? Through Core HR automation with data integration. To illustrate the power of Oracle HCM integration, let’s examine how an international non-profit company automated its Core HR to payroll workflow with hands-free data integration, resulting in massive time savings for the company.

The Challenge: Automating Employee Data

To alleviate demands the HR department faced as the company expanded, the international non-profit knew they needed a solution that removed the need to manually reenter employee data across multiple apps. Manual reentry cost the company valuable time and resources and created the risk of human error associated with entering the same set of data into both Oracle HCM and their payroll app. The company realized the necessity for employee data automation, and the busy IT team knew they required specialized knowledge to implement these integrations quickly and efficiently.

The Solution: Integrating Oracle HCM with a Payroll App

In the pursuit of a resolution, the company sought the expertise of Flexspring – experts in data integration. Flexspring provides integration between Oracle HCM and any payroll app with data connectors custom-tailored to fit unique business needs. The goal was to forge a cohesive ecosystem where Oracle HCM data effortlessly integrates into their preferred payroll app, ADP Workforce Now, eradicating the necessity for manual data entry and mitigating the risk of errors.

The international non-profit company collaborated closely with Flexspring’s specialists. Together, they devised a customized integration solution tailored to the company’s distinct requirements. Automation liberated the HR team, allowing them to concentrate on business expansion. The implementation of custom-fit data integration eradicated the need for duplicate manual entry across apps, ensuring the streamlined flow of accurate, up-to-date data.

The integration included:

  • New Hires from Oracle HCM to ADP: As soon as the hiring manager presses the hired button in Oracle HCM, new hire data automatically syncs in ADP with essential information needed to process payroll in real-time, eliminating manual double-data entry.
  • Employee Updates from Oracle HCM to ADP: As soon as current employee data changes in Oracle HCM, the data automatically updates in ADP. Data integration ensures up-to-date employee data needed to process payroll for all current employees.

“With new hires,” said the company’s Chief Information Officer, “integration saves us at least 30 minutes for each new employee we bring on board by automating the data from Oracle HCM to ADP. No more double-data entry! We also converted third-party contractors to bring them on as full-time employees, and data integration made the process easy. Also, the Flexspring monitoring tool is great. I know exactly what’s going on every day. The integration is perfect, and we couldn’t ask for anything more!”

The Outcome: An Impact of Heroic Magnitude

Thanks to the forward-thinking decision company and the expertise of Flexspring, the company underwent a transformative impact:

Time Efficiency: Automation saved 30 minutes per new hire for the HR department, by eliminating manual, double-data entry.

Enhanced Precision: The seamless transfer of data between Oracle HCM and ADP Workforce Now virtually eradicated the risk of errors associated with manual input.

Informed Decision-Making: Management acquired a comprehensive overview of operations, empowering them to make well-informed decisions based on accurate and up-to-date insights.


The collaboration between the international non-profit company and Flexspring showcases the transformative impact of Oracle HCM integration. Data integration reduced manual data entry time by 30 minutes per new hire, enhancing precision, and mitigating the risk of errors. Seamless, accurate, and up-to-date data empowers management and the entire HR department to focus on strategic choices that grow the business.
