Q: Do SFTP syncs take longer than API syncs?
A: No, there is no fundamental difference in the amount of time it takes an SFTP sync vs an API sync to run.
Q: What is the average time for a sync to run for a customer, say ~2k employees? How often does a typical sync run?
A: For a customer with around 2k employees, syncing user information from the customer's HRIS system would take less than 10 minutes. The frequency of the sync really depends on customers' needs but hourly, every 8 hours, and daily syncs are common frequencies.
