Welcome to the HRD Tech Roundup – your one-stop update of everything happening in the world of HR Technology.
A host of top tech operators join forces to improve communications and bring benefits to employees this week. Salesforce has announced a collaboration with Red Box to harness the power of AI, Yammer can now be used with Microsoft Teams to help user engagement, and more.
Key Players Announcements:
- Salesforce has announced an integration with AI-powered voice platform Red Box in order to bring AI-powered insights to businesses to help
drive sales performance improvements. This will enable organizations not using a Salesforce embedded communication platform to capture high-quality call and metadata from their existing telephony or contact center platform (via My Tech Decisions).
- Crew has announced a deep integration with Slack. This move is the first to unify communications between the enterprise communication platform that many corporate offices depend on with the mobile-friendly tools preferred by their distributed, frontline teams. With the Crew and Slack integration, headquarters personnel using Slack for work communication can seamlessly establish top-down and bi-directional lines of communication directly with their frontline teams using Crew (via Business Wire).
- Yammer has been integrated by Microsoft Teams after a redesign. The new features give IT admins more tools to boost user engagement. They can also pin posts to the top of their newsfeed and add polls to announcements (via Search Unified Communications).
More HRD Tech News:
- TriNet has announced the acquisition of privately held firm Little Bird HR. Little Bird HR specialises in PEO ad human resource solutions for the educational institution industry. The terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed yet (via Seeking Alpha).
- Indeed has announced an integration with employer review site Glassdoor in order to develop combined recruiting solutions. The partnership will involve re-aligning sales and service models, including a cobranded employment branding bundle. The two organizations are both owned by Recruit Holdings, a public corporation from Japan (via HR Dive).
