Overview and capabilities

15Five's HRIS Connector is a software integration that connects a company's HRIS (Human Resources Information System) to 15Five. The purpose of an HRIS connector is to allow employee data to flow from your HRIS provider to 15Five, enabling real-time employee data synchronization and automatic updates. This eliminates the need for manual data entry and reduces the risk of errors that can occur when data is entered multiple times into different systems.
