Xander: It’s People-First AI
by Armen Berjikly
Technological innovation is compounding rapidly, with emerging technologies reinventing everything from how we drive to the way we diagnose disease. Advancements in human capital management (HCM) are happening just as quickly, and the impact on human resources—and the workplace as a whole—is considerable.
Artificial intelligence (AI) holds profound promise. Earlier this year, Ultimate Software unveiled Xander™, our own AI platform, which is powering an increasing number of UltiPro®’s solutions.
Uniquely, Xander can understand practically any type of HCM data – be it numbers like tenure, or free text from survey responses, to help leaders predict their team members’ behavior, including performance potential and flight risk. These predictive and prescriptive analytics also encourage continuous development, helping leaders become better managers by providing personalized suggestions at key decision points.
Using advanced natural language processing (NLP) and machine-learning algorithms, Xander is also capable of sophisticated sentiment analysis. By regularly soliciting feedback from employees and deciphering their true emotions, leaders learn how their employees actually feel and can take steps to facilitate proactive change.
A breakthrough technology that is as sensitive to emotions as it is to statistics, Xander helps our customers better understand their people and ultimately drive organizational results.
It’s people-first AI.
