Let’s make job-filling more fulfilling

The prospect of adding new team members is exciting. Getting there is lot less fun — from gathering job description details and chasing sponsor feedback, to working across multiple tools and nurturing candidates. What if you had fewer manual tasks and more meaningful work?

An IBM Watson Orchestrate™ digital employee (digey) can break the cycle of tedious work. All you have to do is ask. Your digey takes your chat and a catalog of skills to quickly deliver results. And it learns as it goes, so you multiply solutions, not tasks.

What are digital workers?

Digital workers (digeys) are automated assistants designed to support individuals or teams in getting tasks done faster and more efficiently. They work seamlessly across the apps and tools you use most to handle many repetitive tasks, using one or more skills to deliver results. Using a digey to accomplish tasks, from the mundane to mission-critical, frees you to focus on work that matters.

Do I need a technical background to use digey?

No coding or special training is required. You use an elegantly designed dashboard to access your personal digey, and natural language to make requests digey understands and executes using automated skills. It’s all self-service, so IT doesn’t have to get involved in everyday actions. It’s ready out-of-the-box for you to use in minutes.

Do I have to start from the beginning every time I have a similar request?

By using groundbreaking technology, digey understands requests in context, “grows” with you, and remembers more as you continue to engage. For example, once you provide the folder for job templates, digey knows how to reference it each time.

What if we use different systems so our data is all over the place, across multiple apps and tools?

That’s no problem for digey. Your digey can get data from one system and seamlessly store it in another with our out-of-the-box integrations so you can quickly get the specific results you ask for. Explore integrations.

What pricing packages are available for HR?

We think everyone should have access to a digey, so we’re offering a free launch edition for six months when you sign up for the waitlist. You’ll get to try the personal digey with specialized HR skills. As we roll out the roadmap, there will be new releases and editions you can move to before your preview expires. But there will always be an option for a limited free edition.
