What is it?
With the Fourth UK Employee API, you can create, update and retrieve employee data in Fourth. It is intended for customers using Fourth in the United Kingdom as their employee master record and payroll system.
The API allows other software, like ERP, HR or applicant tracking systems, to update Fourth with a comprehensive set of employee details. This provides Fourth with the most up-to-date data available about new and existing employees.
Meanwhile, the data you can retrieve using the API is extensive, such as nationality and residency status, education, next of kin, bank account and payroll details, absences and more.
The UK Employee API is an HTTP REST API, making integration easy.
Why use it?
Because the data retrievable with this API is extensive, you can use Fourth as your master employee record, updating payment, HR, ERP, and even training systems as required. There’s no need for your staff to manually enter data across systems, removing keying mistakes and freeing up their time.
When onboarding employees, integrating with this API means that your recruitment or applicant tracking systems can automatically update Fourth with the new employee data. This makes the data immediately available in Fourth for workforce management activities, like scheduling or creating employee accounts.
