Integrating multiple systems can provide organizations with valuable data insights, improved efficiency, and a better user experience. However, not all integrations are created equal.

Workplaze offers both an open API environment and an interface management tool to meet diverse needs efficiently. Organizations can configure their own interfaces using our API environment, while our interface management tool enables custom configuration of interfaces supporting API, xDBC, and batch file integration, with pre/post-processing and data translation.

  1. More integration options beyond attendance machines and journals
  2. Improved API architecture for easier third-party integration
  3. Support for various interface types (web, mobile, chatbot, API, etc.)
  4. Custom API creation for third-party integration
  5. Unified architecture/code for web and mobile interfaces
  6. Standardization of SSO for easier authentication
  7. Continued use of file integration
  8. API integration planning included in project management.

SunFish offers two API interface methods that balance ease of configuration with flexibility to meet advanced requirements:

1. Standard open APIs provide interfaces for commonly used functions according to our documented standards.
2. The SunFish API builder enables configuration of any API interface to comply with third-party standards or to support unique API requirements.

If direct database connections are allowed, applications can be integrated using this method. One application establishes a database connection to another application’s database using ODBC or JDBC drivers and supplied credentials.

To retrieve or write data, the connected application needs to know the relevant tables or views. This method is commonly used for one-way interfaces where only one application needs to read data from the other. Access to the database can be limited to read-only, ensuring data security.

One method of integrating applications involves exporting data from one application into a flat file, such as a delimited text file or spreadsheet, which is then uploaded to another application. This approach can be automated by storing the file in a repository accessible by both applications, with scheduled tasks for exporting and importing data at specific intervals.

In SunFish, this method is commonly used to retrieve attendance data from fingerprint devices. The fingerprint application periodically generates raw attendance data files and stores them in a designated folder. SunFish periodically checks the folder for new files and imports the data.
