Data tasks done faster, smarter, together

Set, share, and automate your team data workflows.

Dealing with data from HR or Workforce Management software isn’t always easy, which is why it often ends up siloed away from all the other critical info within your business. But it doesn’t have to be that way! In this 5-minute tutorial 👇 you’ll see how you can use Parabola to pull hourly employee shift and pay data out of an API - no engineers required - and turn it into an actionable sales report.

🙃  Problems with Labor Cost Data

If you’ve ever worked with labor cost data, you’ve probably run into one of these problems:

  • Zenefits, Gusto or etc doesn't usually talk to other data within your business
  • You need to mess with it in Excel before it’s useful
  • Labor and wage data needs to be matched with up-to-date sales data

And if you don’t go through this whole process often enough, you end up with bad visibility on your team’s performance. (We know what happens when we assume, right?)
