VMS Integration

IQN can quickly integrate your VMS platform with your existing systems, like your financial, HR and security systems. That means accelerated ROI―and a true end-to-end contingent workforce management solution.

How Do We Do It?

We start with IQN’s award-winning architecture. As a true software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, IQN Compass ensures that our customers are always on the newest software version and infrastructure. Whether integrating for the first time or the thousandth time, customers are guaranteed the best VMS integration experience possible. You also benefit from the highest possible data security, performance, scalability and system availability.

Rapid Integrations

IQN provides you two ways to integrate with our vendor management system (VMS), depending on what works best for you. Both are fast and flexible, and virtually eliminate the pain points often associated with integrations. Either way, IQN automates the vms integration process and dramatically cuts development time from weeks to a matter of days.

Incoming integrations always go through the application tier (rather than writing to the database directly) to apply all business rules, data validation and linkages for your configuration. This ensures complete data integrity and consistency for all of your data within the IQN platform.


Simple SaaS integrations have become a top priority for IQN’s enterprise customers around the world, and Developer.IQN.com was purpose-built to meet the needs of fast integrations. With Developer.IQN.com, our customers, partners and suppliers have:

  • IQN APIs (data warehouse, generate payroll, reconcile invoices, accounting codes, etc.)
  • Increased speed and accuracy of integrations
  • Decreased time and errors when implementing custom interfaces and simplified support of interfaces
  • Access to documentation for automated integrations with IQN software (standardized RESTful APIs)

The Developer.IQN.com portal enables developers to quickly and easily access available APIs. Documentation for both Web Services and Batch File APIs is also housed on the site, providing all of the information a developer needs to begin integrations independent of IQN’s technical staff.

IQN partners and suppliers benefit from the fast integration, process efficiency, process speed, and reduced errors made possible by the HR-XML compliant Web Services on this integration portal. APIs seamlessly automate customer and supplier systems, providing clearer visibility into costs and head count.

Developer.IQN.com is the VMS industry’s first certification with HR Open Standards and is validated by the HR Open Standards Consortium.


The IQNtegrator integration platform accelerates VMS deployments and dramatically cuts development time from weeks, to a matter of days, and even hours in many cases. IQNtegrator provides a smooth and seamless integration experience that gets customers up and running fast―up to 85% faster.

Typical system integrations include:

  • User
  • CAC
  • Location
  • Hierarchy (people and cost object)
  • Worker extract

IQNtegrator helps you recognize cost savings during and long after implementation is complete. An intuitive, visual design interface enables drag-and-drop process and data mapping, provides immediate response to changing requirements, and simplifies QA testing―resulting in a reduction of the amount of time and rework required to build and support integrations. Post-implementation, integrations are easily maintained to reflect changing business or technical requirements at no cost and with minimal client effort.
