It’s a flexible, cost-effective and intuitive solution for companies doing strategic workforce planning.

“We are delighted to be a partner in the ADP marketplace to extend the value and benefits delivered by ADP’s workforce solution,” said Linda Ginac, President and CEO of TalentGuard. Integrating our innovative talent management solution with ADP’s industry-leading offerings helps employers build a globally-integrated enterprise that consistently develops, deploys and engages talent.

ADP Marketplace is a new cloud-based app store designed to help employers dynamically manage an ecosystem of enterprise applications from ADP and world-class partners. This enables companies of all sizes to extend the value of their workforce solutions seamlessly across their entire organizations via a secure, single-sign-on process.

According to the ADP Research Institute®, the typical large company operates more than 31 separate HR applications and 33 payroll systems*. Many HR systems currently lack the ability to share workforce data with each other – and other core business systems. Today’s constantly evolving business environment requires a digital enterprise application shopping experience and seamless data integration capabilities across solutions to drive meaningful business productivity.

“Many companies struggle to integrate core HCM and business applications. ADP Marketplace empowers employers to overcome that challenge so they can focus on boosting their business agility and their employees’ success,” said Don Weinstein, Senior Vice President, Product Management, ADP. TalentGuard’s clients can access pre-integrated workforce data in real-time through one intuitive platform while tapping into a growing ecosystem of trusted HCM apps to meet their evolving business needs.”
ADP Marketplace continues to add new HCM applications to meet the business community’s current and future needs. To learn more about ADP Marketplace, visit  the ADP Marketplace.
