Integrations: How Kazoo Does More for You

They say it takes a village, and we agree. That’s why Kazoo has partnered with top HR tech companies on integrations that help you do more. Today, we’ll talk about what integrations are, what integrations do for you, and how Kazoo’s integrations help you do more.

Building an HR tech stack can be daunting, to say the least. Daunting and not exactly cheap. You’ve got recruiting and onboarding tools, HRIS and human capital management (HCM), performance management, recognition and rewards, learning and development, engagement surveys, communication and messaging tools… oh my!

Then, once you’re implemented and customized your technologies and tools, you then have to manage them. Easy peasy, right? 

Enter integrations. 

Types of integrations

There are two primary methods for connecting your systems and data: API and SFTP. Put simply:

  • Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) allow different applications and systems to have a chat. When two systems are connected via API, they can request to send and/or receive data to or from one another.
  • Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) allows you to safely transport files between systems.


What integrations do for you

Through this software engineering wizardry, the right integrations can help you do more with your HR tool set, like:

  • Streamline your people, your processes, and your technology
  • Keep all your employee data clean and tidy across your various technologies
  • Make it easier for your tech stack to adapt and grow with your business
  • Extend the functionality of your systems
  • Get a lot more bang for your buck
