Sierra’s Bi-Directional TIA Interface
The Sierra Workforce Solutions interface provides a bi-directional bridge between a given timekeeping package and a given accounting / payroll package.
Sierra Workforce Solutions developed TIA to interface timecard systems with accounting/payroll systems. The program transfers data in two directions – it passes timecard data from the time card system to the accounting/payroll system, and populates the timecard system database with employee and organizational information from the accounting/payroll system. Transfer of employee data has been limited in accordance with the national HIPAA privacy directives.
The Sierra interface combines a number of different interface behaviors in a single program. In many ways, the program can be visualized as a “Swiss Army knife” with several blades available to open in two different directions – one set of blades representing variations in the input of time card data (e.g. TimeMaster™, TimeMaster™ Pro (Foxpro (VFP)), TimeMaster™ (SQL), TimeMaster™ Web, TimeMaster™ Ascend and TimeMaster™ Summit) and one set representing the various target accounting systems (Dynamics GP, AX, NAV, SL, Sage ERP 300, SagePro, BusinessWorks, Sage ERP 100/500, Darwin, KEY2ACT and many more).

The combination of “blades” can be selected via a user interface during installation. After the blades are selected, there is often another opportunity to adjust the behavior of the interface, depending on which “blades” have been configured. This fine tuning is enabled by the use of specially designed “custom codes” that are entered into the setup form of the installed program. These codes trigger specific custom behaviors which have been provided for the configurations.
With the click of a mouse imagine having all of your time entries sent to your payroll service AND all of your accounting systems updated at the same time. The Sierra interface was built to save a broad range of businesses time and money.
