In a rapidly evolving digital landscape, we believe innovation isn’t just about staying ahead but about reshaping the game. At APS, we’re not simply following the artificial intelligence (AI) bandwagon. We’re steering it toward a more powerful, productive, and proactive HR experience.
While our competitors stop at AI-powered search functions, we’ve taken a leap forward. APS is pleased to announce our plan to launch a robust suite of generative AI capabilities embedded seamlessly throughout our application, elevating how HR admins and managers work and thrive. The goal of our AI technology is to provide data insights that allow smaller HR departments to be more efficient and strategic in their decision-making.
What is Generative AI?
Generative AI is a type of artificial intelligence capable of generating new and original data based on various inputs. This type of AI uses learning algorithms and large language models (LLM) to analyze data patterns and generate new insights based on those patterns. Generative AI has a wide range of applications, especially in HR. Overall, generative AI has the potential to revolutionize the way HR interacts with technology, not as a replacement for people but to create new opportunities for efficiency gains.
AI That Works For You, Not Just With You
During the initial phases of development, APS met with our Product Advisory Group, consisting of customers from different industries and company sizes. At first, their reaction toward AI for HR was uncertain. However, the feedback became overwhelmingly positive after we showcased its benefits in the APS platform.
Our generative AI model isn’t just another tool; it’s an intelligent assistant embedded throughout our application. We identified areas of the APS platform to strategically embed our AI technology that delivers meaningful insights and automation for HR and managers alike. This proactive approach simplifies complex tasks that would take leaders and HR professionals hours, if not days, to perform. By saving time, managers and HR teams can enhance efficiency and become more strategic in handling specific tasks.
Closing The Loop - Streamlined Processes, Streamlined Success
The embedded AI brings transformative functions to users, going beyond delivering the right answer or pulling a help document. An example of this is the ability to conduct enhanced performance review analysis. By diving deeper into feedback, the AI tool can extract insights, identify patterns, and offer actionable recommendations for employee growth and organizational improvement.
APS will build AI into Workforce Planning, Scheduling, Performance Management, Manager Self Serve and Benefits Administration, with future plans to embed this technology in other areas of the platform. Managers can leverage AI to make decisions confidently and quickly, playing a more strategic role.
Our AI’s unique ability to “close the loop” is what truly sets APS apart. It’s more than just delivering the right answer or pulling up a help document; it’s about creating a smooth, frictionless HR process from start to finish. Our AI is there, from onboarding to benefits administration to talent development, ensuring nothing slips through the cracks.
“Getting an answer to a question more quickly is great, but that is not the true power of AI,” said APS President Aaron Johnson. “The purpose of our AI for HR solution is to empower the human touch with actionable insights, not replace it.”
HR managers can improve efficiency and strategic operations by implementing more streamlined workflows with AI technology.
Join The HR Revolution
At APS, we believe in creating technology that enriches the human experience, not one that overtakes it. With our revolutionary AI insights, we’re putting the “human” back into “human resources,” equipping HR admins with the smart, intuitive, and comprehensive tools they need to succeed.
Embedding AI functionality in our payroll and HR technology is part of our continued dedication to helping smaller HR departments operate more efficiently and strategically with leaner resources.
We will provide another update on our generative AI for human resources technology when we release it into Early Access for existing customers.
