Hyperlab, who previously work along brands like Zurich Insurance and Hong Leong Bank, also won the Gold for the Best Tech Developer during the awards night.
Leading ASEAN bank, Hong Leong Bank (HLB), planned to build a large Helpdesk Team that needed to support their existing over 8,500 employees and process recruitment for new hires.
So, in 2018, HLB worked with Everise to hire HALI as an Intelligent Assistant that would deliver outstanding employee experience while also improving HR productivity. HALI was integrated into HLB’s Human Resource Management system and trained to understand over 10,000 questions, HALI successfully provided substantial answers to employee enquiries about policy, benefit and other HR-related questions. HALI also automated core processes like creating employment letters.
Later in the year, HALI was also equipped with psycho linguistics and machine learning capabilities to empower it as a screening assistant and support talent acquisition. Built based on HLB’s central requirements, it easily detects the skills of the candidates and categorize them whether they are digitally literate, analytical or has the right personality for the job.
HALI and Everise innovative solution won three awards in Mobile, Data and Platform categories.
Everise and Start Media group also won an award for their sex education chatbot that educated Malaysians on this sensitive but timely topic.
