Major talent assessment technology company, Talview, has recently collaborated with Microsoft and launched an AI-powered Talent Assistant Chatbot Qton. This Talview-Microsoft collaboration aims to promote the use of AI technology and Machine Learning within the recruitment industry.
Chatbot Qton has been developed with the objective of making automation widespread in the field of recruitment, in the hope of benefiting both recruiters and candidates. Microsoft hopes that Qton, built based on the company’s Bot Framework and Luis NLP aims, will have a resounding impact in the recruitment industry.
According to Sanjoe Jose, Chief Executive Officer of Talview, the company is very happy with the partnership that focuses on incorporating digital expertise into basic human interaction. It aims to improve the recruitment industry which has previously largely relied on traditional approaches. He added that Qton adds great value to the recruitment process, and at the same time strengthens the company’s foothold as leaders in the industry.
A key benefit of applying Qton to the recruitment process is a massive reduction in the level of manpower normally required in the initial stages of the hiring process. The chatbot automatically detects and filters the most suitable candidates for the role, and proceeds them to the next stage of the hiring process. A more holistic approach in evaluating potential candidates is also allowed thanks to Qton, which greatly increases the probability of hiring the best personnel. The significantly more efficient hiring process also reduces the total cost of recruitment activities. Furthermore, Qton enhances the effectiveness of employer marketing by helping to quickly connect a potential candidate to a company’s brand.
In terms of making the recruitment process better for candidates, the new platform removes the hassle of them having to travel long distances for a preliminary interview. This will remove the need for the candidate to take a day off their current job to visit the recruiter’s office.
To improve recruitment turnaround time for clients, the AI and cloud-based chatbot harnesses the power of machine learning and advanced data science. The chatbot features intelligent speech recognition and social media and video analyses. These features allow companies to be more competitive and also build better teams.
According to Rajiv Sodhi, General Manager of Microsoft India partner Ecosystem, the company is dedicated to creating technology for helping people and organisations achieve better success. He added that the Qton, which leverages the technology of Azure and the Microsoft bot platform, will be able to assist clients in all stages including seeking, engaging, screening, and choosing the best candidates for the job - this will bring productivity to new levels in the world of human resources.
In another Microsoft - Talview collaboration, an intelligent remote proctoring tool, Proview, was developed to automatically conduct 18 different automated checks of candidates based on inputs such as audio, video, and screen. The main objective of the smart tool is to benefit e-learning, higher education, and recruitment experiences.
Following their collaboration with some of the best talents in the AI and cloud industry, Microsoft has proven its dedication in developing intelligent solutions for a wide range of industries.
