Deluxe announced a relationship with Codat, the universal API for small business data that provides connectivity to mid- and large-sized clients to build integrated products for SMBs. Through this effort, Deluxe Payroll + HR Solutions customers will now be able to reconcile their accounting data back into their accounting software automatically. The first accounting software immediately available for set-up is QuickBooks Online (QBO). Seamless in-platform integration to a business’s accounting software is not common with payroll providers today. Historically, owners of small- and medium-sized businesses using accounting software, such as QuickBooks, had to export their payroll data from their current payroll provider’s platform, and then manually import it into their accounting software. Using Codat’s API, Deluxe is providing a white-labeled solution, connecting a QBO account directly to the Deluxe Payroll + HR Solutions account, enabling automatic data reconciliation. Through this relationship, business owners will connect once on the Deluxe platform and, using Codat's technology, the ongoing synchronization is managed seamlessly in the background. The automation of this manual process will save business owners time, reduce errors, and ultimately ensure payroll data accuracy.
