Traditional human capital management systems treat people like inventory. Talent information is usually badly organised, often held in multiple systems, and usually presented in spreadsheets or one-dimensional graphics. As a result, human resources professionals are limited in their capacity to be commercially relevant.
Our software is designed for people who waste too much time in spreadsheets, and burn too much energy creating slides for management.
Talent Lab is an interactive business intelligence and analytics solution that helps you discover and share the stories behind your human capital data in real time.
The software unifies people information from multiple sources and converts into stunning visualisation, making analytics easy for everyone.
Identify talent blind spots, isolate performance outliers and create intuitive dashboards in minutes, allowing you to make accurate talent decisions that save money and build stronger more inclusive teams.
Talent Lab is available as a hosted or on-premise solution.
Data Visualization is at the heart of everything we do. Our software designers joined us from the international press, the video gaming industry and NASA to create new ways to understand people information.
Our work has been recognised and endowed by numerous design awards, including a Webby Award nomination in 2014. Also in 2014, the company was awarded ‘Awesome Startup in HR’ at leading HR conference HR Tech in Las Vegas. Our flagship product is Talent Lab.
