Philadelphia, PA – December 6, 2018 – SharedXpertise, publisher of HRO Today Magazine, and Alexander Mann Solutions, one of the world’s leading providers of talent acquisition and management services, have partnered to release the Human Resources New Technology Quarterly Summary: Q3 2018.
As the rate of advancement in the human capital management (HCM) technology sector increases, these quarterly reports track and summarize trends, funding initiatives and other activities related product innovation in HR. The reports provide critical insights into new technology, its applications and the companies leading the HCM technology industry.
During the third quarter of 2018, 49 major announcements in HR technologies were made, down slightly from the 57 documented in the second quarter. Mobile capabilities, artificial intelligence (AI), and platforms that facilitate communication between employers and employees/candidates continued to have high levels of development. Interest in AI has remained strong all year, which has many companies exploring how to prepare for the inevitable digital transformation.
“Technology is revolutionizing HR as we know it—and the demand for solutions that are both increasingly complex and agile will continue to grow,” said Erica Titchener, Global Head of Technology at Alexander Mann Solutions. “Before jumping into the race to innovate, HR leaders should take the time identify pain points and opportunities to integrate technology and implement strategies that address their business needs.”
New HR technology platforms were prominent among the third quarter announcements. The 17 platforms brought to market during this quarter addressed needs such as predictive hiring and talent management, employee engagement, and communication.
“The opportunities to capitalize on new HR technology platforms seem limitless, but there are a number of considerations to take when evaluating new options,” said Larry Basinait, Vice President of Market Research at SharedXpertise. “HR leaders need to look at the big picture first to determine what kind of data is needed and how they are going to use it to impact the way they do business.”
In addition to exploring key areas of technology development, the report provides a monthly breakdown of major product development initiatives, funding transactions, and mergers and acquisitions.
