IBM has begun to partner with key customers to offer immediate value from one of its recent acquisitions, Cast Iron software.
In a collaboration with ADP, a leading provider of HR, payroll, and benefits administration services, IBM Cast Iron will help ADP expand its tax filing offerings to new markets and serve employers of all sizes.
This will allow ADP clients to realize efficiencies through a simplified tax filing process.
“Our clients’ use of IBM Cast Iron integration software will help to ensure those clients can take advantage of ADP Tax Services’ payroll tax filing system, while also expanding the integration of our on-demand Tax Services with more on-premise payroll software and ERP payroll systems,” said Lori Schreiber, General Manager, Division Vice President, Tax Services, ADP Tax and Financial Services.
“Moving forward, we will continue to use our tax filing and compliance expertise to expand our suite of product and service offerings across our beyond-payroll business lines.”
Together, IBM and ADP will offer customers greater simplicity and cost efficiency through combined online payroll processing and tax filing capabilities.
For example, ready-to-use connectors automatically unite different payroll applications with ADP Tax Services. Drag-and-drop mapping between company payroll applications and ADP Tax Services enable the translation of alphanumeric and numeric data in different applications.
Advanced business logic can detect corrupted data in a payroll system and notify the system administrator for correction before the data is transferred to ADP. Further, one console provides the ability to see and manage all cloud and on-premise data and processes being integrated.
Cast Iron has been the leading leading cloud integration provider with thousand of cloud deployments and well-established relationships with major cloud vendors.
It provides solutions that rapidly integrate SaaS and cloud applications, such as Salesforce.com, Oracle CRM, Taleo and ADP, with on-premise enterprise applications from SAP, Oracle, Microsoft and others.
IBM Cast Iron technologies provide pre-packaged integration solutions for dozens of leading enterprise and cloud applications, as well as a single, integrated platform that bridges cloud and on-premise applications in just days.
Further, IBM Cast Iron technologies can deliver these solutions as a physical appliance, virtual appliance or as a cloud service.
