Indeavor Significantly Improves Workforce Planning for Enterprises

Indeavor, industry leader in People Operations & Workforce Management, today announced the launch of its Labor Demand Planning software, which enables large enterprises with a 24-hour shift-driven workforce to integrate their ERP and Workforce Management systems at a global scale.

This is a first-of-its-kind solution that has the ability to address very complex labor and demand planning situations at scale. By reducing the time spent by demand planners in the system and eliminating the need for manual demands through automation, Indeavor's Labor Demand Planning solution directly aligns organizations' ERP systems, leaving no room for human error, and improving labor alignment for the production scheduled to the labor that is required.

One of the key features of Indeavor's new solution is its integration with ERP systems. The ability for ERP systems to send raw data directly to Indeavor, and for Indeavor's functionality to translate that information into the correct labor requirements significantly improves the end-to-end operational experience.

"We're thrilled to bring our Labor Demand Planning solution to organizations with complex production planning processes who need real-time workforce alignment and communication," said Brandon Schwarz, CEO of Indeavor. "This is a solution that has been researched and built over years of first hand experience and partnership with our customer base and allows these same organizations to seamlessly address complex labor and demand planning situations at scale. By integrating workforce management with ERP systems, we can significantly reduce the need for manual labor planning, improve productivity and create a delightful user experience for our partners and customers."

The Labor Demand Planning software is part of Indeavor's comprehensive suite of workforce management software solutions, designed to help organizations streamline their operations and optimize their workforce. The software is currently being leveraged by enterprise customers, and will be generally available May 23, 2023.

Workstream Launches First Multilingual AI Chatbot Built for Hourly Workforce Management

Newswire | July 20, 2023

Workstream, the smart people management platform for the hourly workforce, announced today its new, groundbreaking multilingual and customizable AI chatbot, Workstream Assistant. As the flagship product in the company's move to a fully AI-powered workforce management solution, Workstream Assistant empowers businesses to connect with and retain hourly workers across diverse markets nationwide. With artificial intelligence experience from MIT, Google, Cornell and Stanford, Workstream built the first multilingual AI chatbot platform to broaden accessibility to AI to the over 80 million hourly workers in the U.S. According to research by the Urban Institute, 14% of all workers in the U.S. and 20% of low-wage workers are immigrants who use English as a second language. These numbers are projected to continue growing. Workstream Assistant can understand a wide range of languages to accommodate the diversifying workforce and will use machine learning to provide applicants with more information about the company while gathering applicant information. By enabling workers to communicate in any language they're comfortable in, Workstream Assistant empowers applicants to ask more questions about the position and company — from what career progression they can expect to what the company culture is like. Giving hourly workers the opportunity to vet jobs through a natural conversation before they apply encourages a better applicant-to-job fit, resulting in stronger hires and better employee retention for businesses. "I am thrilled to embrace the power of AI in our recruiting and retention efforts. With the ability to personalize Workstream Assistant to embody our brand, we expect to attract more applicants excited to join the Eegee's family, resulting in stronger hires," according to Jason Kornosky, director of operations for Eegee's. "The chat-apply experience is so natural and authentic that it makes it easy for applicants to ask questions and vet us as much as we vet them. I see this having a big impact on how we build a loyal, happy workforce, and I can't wait to see what more we can accomplish with Workstream AI." Paired with funding from Peter Thiel's Founders Fund, GGV Capital, Mark Cuban, Will Smith, Jay Z, The Chainsmokers, and Dropbox co-founder Arash Ferdowsi, Workstream has helped franchisees and businesses like Burger King, UPS, and Marriott hire and retain several million hourly employees since 2017. Workstream's new AI technology, through integration with OpenAI, builds on this expertise while using previously acquired data points to create an AI platform to serve the hourly workforce. "Workstream Assistant represents a crucial breakthrough for the hourly workforce and is an indispensable tool for hiring managers and HR professionals in this domain," said Desmond Lim, CEO and co-founder of Workstream. "Its ability to bridge communication gaps and provide a seamless hiring experience makes it an essential resource for organizations seeking to attract and retain top talent in the competitive hourly workforce landscape." About Workstream Workstream is the smarter way to hire and retain hourly workers. Its smart technology automates and accelerates HR tasks — like sourcing, screening, scheduling, and onboarding — so businesses can focus on providing a great experience to applicants and workers throughout their employee journey. More than 20,000 businesses trust Workstream to hire faster and retain their teams. Learn more at
