The term “integration” describes a tool that allows two software systems to automatically exchange data. The Predictive Index (PI) is most frequently integrated with Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS), or other business software systems to enhance a hiring process or to allow employees to work together better.
For example, a typical automated ATS integration includes assessing applicants when they reach a certain stage by sending an email invitation or linking them directly to an assessment, and then using an automated process to place PI results directly into the ATS system. The goal of any integration is to make the use of PI more convenient, efficient, and consistent.
Goals for the integration
Integrations often add many of the following functional features to your ATS/HRIS

Include assessments directly within the job application process as a link or inside an inline frame.
Generate email messages inviting people to take PI assessments.
Associate a job opening in the ATS/HRIS with a specific job target defined within PI software.

Display assessment results (e.g. cognitive score or behavioral pattern image or behavioral reference pattern name).
Store PDF report files directly in a candidate or employee record (e.g. Behavioral Report, Interview Guide).
Display a link to the PI software person detail page.
