If the in-house HR system you are using is custom-built for your organization, in this case the chances are that Staffbase does not provide a ready-to-use integration with it. Even in such cases, where there are no ready-to-use solutions available, Staffbase enables you to build your custom integrations to meet your specific integration needs. These are integrations that you can build on your own or with the help of vendors or our technical implementation partners to solve a specific business case. Once you have the custom-built integration, you can use it with the Staffbase platform for your organization’s requirements.
The custom-built integrations depend upon how you envision the solution for your users. These can be embedding the solution for your users in the platform or directly modifying data in an external system with the help of APIs. The custom-built integrations are Embedding and Connecting.
Embedding content provides a new user interface for the external content to be displayed so that the content appears as a part of the employee platform to its users. You need to use this method only when the solution you envisioned to embed into the platform cannot be achieved by ready-to-use integrations.
You can custom-build embedded content via the following methods in the platform:
Embedding via Custom Plugin
- Develop your own web application to solve a very specific business case. You can either build such a solution in-house or get help from vendors or our technical implementation partners. You can then embed this web application as a custom plugin in the Staffbase platform. It will function in the same seamless manner as standard plugins offered by Staffbase. Learn more about custom plugins here.
Embedding via Custom Widgets
- Develop your own web component to solve a specific business case using custom widgets. Once you have developed a custom widget, you can install it to the Staffbase platform. After you have installed the custom widget, it will be available to editors in News and Pages like the standard widgets offered by Staffbase. Learn more bout custom widgets here.
You can establish a connection via API to the Staffbase platform. Using the APIs, you can add, modify, extract, or delete data and content in the Staffbase or an external platform.
Connecting via Staffbase APIs
- Staffbase provides APIs for common scenarios with which you can easily interact with content in the Staffbase or an external platform.
Connecting via Staffbase Web Services
- You can also build API connectors using our web service specification which can act as a connector between the Staffbase platform and your HR system. Learn more about it here.
