Integrate JazzHR with ADP

You've recruited successfully and made the right hire. But now what? Thanks to JazzHR's integration with ADP, you can now seamlessly move candidates into the next stage of their lifecycle as an employee.

Customers with an existing JazzHR account, along with a Run Powered by ADPADP Workforce Now or ADP TotalSource account can connect the two using JazzHR's Data Connector. The data connector is an extra purchase done through the ADP Marketplace. Specific pricing can be seen inside the Marketplace!


Don't have a JazzHR account yet? No problem. Subscribe and connect to JazzHR directly through the ADP Marketplace. (Note: Some TotalSource customers may need to reach out to their ADP Account Manager to enable permissions through ADP in order to use this integration).

Once linked, these integrations allow you to export candidates, manage users and enable single sign-on between the accounts. (Note: You will need to set up an Applicant Onboard New Hire template for the integration to work properly).
