Infor has acquired PeopleAnswers, a leader in predictive talent analytics that uses big data to drive advanced human capital management.
PeopleAnswers' cloud-based talent science platform adds analytical rigor to human capital management. Developed by a team of PhDs in behavioral science, this unique service analyzes 39 behavioral traits for job candidates and produces a fit rating.
Leading companies, including Audi, Foot Locker, Gold's Gym, Hertz, Neiman Marcus, and The Cheesecake Factory, can measure significantly reduced turnover, improved customer service, and increased revenue by qualifying applicants more thoroughly and analytically using PeopleAnswers.
The acquisition of PeopleAnswers will make the Infor HCM suite, already recognized as a leader, one of the first HCM suites to deliver a real-world use case for big data that produces measureable results.
"Evaluating talent is one of the most important decisions for a manager, but these decisions are hindered by uncertainty and a lack of data. PeopleAnswers has pioneered the concept of HCM big data and behavioral science that delivers a patented, cloud-based product available in 16 languages that has become the gold standard for hiring best practices," said Infor CEO Charles Phillips. "Through this acquisition, we will not only expand our HR offering, but we will add a cadre of scientists to move beyond simply automating processes to push the envelope on big data and HCM innovation."
