About the Integration

Fountain is an onboarding software that allows companies to build and manage their network of workers. The Fountain <> Northpass integration enables the automation of workflows between the two platforms. Therefore, removing the need to manually provide course access to users and align completion data with the application process.


Value of the Integration

After the integration is set up, you will be able to add a Northpass course to a Learning stage in Fountain.


Applicants are enrolled in Northpass courses and once these courses are complete, the applicants are automatically moved to the next stage within the applicant funnel.


📣 Pro Tip! 📣

We advise using the First Name, Last Name, Email Address authentication type.
