Kim’s award-winning automation platform leverages Artificial Intelligence capabilities (including neural networks, machine learning and deep learning) to allow HR professionals to configure complex applications in hours, replacing the work that used to require a team of developers many months to complete. This fully integrated case, document, workflow and knowledge management system puts automation control back into the hands of the knowledge workers who own and best understand the process.


Kim solves the dilemma typically faced by HR software buyers forced to choose between the cost and complexity of implementing large, complex systems that require a significant level of custom development, or cobbling together a series of point solutions that are narrow with little-to- no flexibility. Now HR professionals can automate their own processes, workflows and documents for any stage of the employee lifecycle – from onboarding, through day-to- day employee relations and performance management activities, all the way to exit interviews.


Everything your team creates sits on a unified adaptive platform with multi-tenant and multi-language scalability. Whether you automate one process or a thousand, all the data is captured in one place and held in a neural network that loosely models the way the human brain works. One inside, that data can be searched as a single source of truth or presented in our build-your- own dashboards and reports, offering almost one hundred different chart types. Welcome to the future of HR software!
