Easy Access to Leading HR and Financial Cloud Services from One Platform; Marketplace Capabilities Showcased at Today’s HR Technology Conference

LAS VEGAS, Nev, and SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. October 8, 2014 – AppDirect, the cloud service commerce company, announced today its collaboration with ADP — a leading global provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions— to launch the first cloud-based marketplace for HR and workforce management.  Companies of all business types now have one destination to use and manage the applications they need for their workforce operations, and to find complementary applications, providing new automation and integration efficiencies.  Demos of the marketplace features and capabilities will be provided at today’s HR Technology Conference at the ADP booth.

“Today, we’re showcasing the results of a shared vision with ADP to make HR and workforce management services easily accessible and help companies effectively manage their operations,” said Daniel Saks, co-CEO, AppDirect. “ADP is a trusted global industry leader and cloud innovator, and our joint collaboration is truly driving market-changing transformation. We’re enabling a one-stop cloud destination for employers to discover  best-of-breed applications that complement their use of ADP’s core services while providing a rich and unique ecosystem that software developers and service providers can also leverage to promote and sell their services.”

Through AppDirect’s monetization and management platform, the ADP Marketplace will provide easy access to a customized catalog of services and solutions for ADP’s customers to find, buy, use and manage through a single sign-on and integrated billing.  For ADP customers, this will reduce time spent working across multiple platforms to access the services they need and provide the ability to improve workflow processes and efficiencies.  Companies can now execute and manage tasks in one work stream from the services they access and integrate in the ADP Marketplace. AppDirect’s API-addressable platform also offers advantages, enabling wider access to ADP’s APIs for data-sharing capabilities of applications from one platform. Partners and developers can access the APIs to enable access to their innovative applications for the ADP Marketplace.

“By collaborating with AppDirect, we’re making it easier than ever for our customers to use ADP solutions to simplify their work as well as discover new services from other providers of complementary services, all from one central location, ” said Don Weinstein, senior vice president, product management, ADP. “The ADP Marketplace will help clients simplify data-sharing by providing real-time integration with other key enterprise applications and reducing deployment times with pre-built integrations.” 

Through AppDirect’s technology, ADP is able to streamline adding new services to the ADP Marketplace and continue to grow its HCM ecosystem. AppDirect’s expertise onboarding and provisioning applications on a wide scale enables these efficiencies.  A range of ADP solutions is available now and several partners are working with ADP to offer services employers will be able to access and use.
