A Chatbot is an AI software that interacts with users in a natural conversation through messaging applications, websites, mobile apps, or through telephone.​

Below are the core tasks behind a Chatbot:​

  • User request analysis : Analyses the user’s  request to identify the user intent and to extract relevant entities. ​
  • Returning the response : Once user’s intent has been identified, chatbot provides appropriate response. The responses may be text, data stored, graphics etc.​

HCM Chatbot Use Cases

Chatbot app can offer below services if implemented:​

  • Enable quick way for employees to review their benefits, timesheets, vacation, holidays, payroll, and other HR Information anytime. This would alleviate HR staff from having to respond, retrieve and communicate the information, making them more efficient.​

Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Robotic Process Automation is the automation software or a robot to emulate and integrate the actions of human interacting with digital systems to execute business processes.​

RPA bots can be designed so that they can interact with different systems through integrations and screen scraping like replicating employee actions.​

Key features are as below:​

  • Integrating with enterprise tools by connecting to system APIs, reading and writing databases.​
  • Scraping data from the web.​
  • Data processing like making calculations, extracting data from documents, inputting data to forms, extracting and reformatting data into reports and dashboards etc.​
  • Launching and using various applications including opening emails and attachments, logging to applications, moving files and folders.​

HCM RPA Example

We have used UiPath for RPA.

Machine Learning (ML)

Machine learning is a method of data analysis that automates analytical model building. It is the part of AI where system can learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions.​

Machine Learning can handle a large amount of the repetitive and time consuming HR functions, and thus free up HRs to allocate more times and resources on other HR activities.
