  • Knowing is awesome. Say hello to Socrates.ai.

Is your content repository or knowledge management system prepared to meet your employees’ needs in the moments that matter?

With the Digital Conversation Hub, your employees go to one place to get all these questions answered. Period. No more frustrating experiences searching multiple data, content, and knowledge sites for information, or waiting on the line for the help desk to answer and then get back to them. The Digital Conversation Hub acts just like their own private virtual assistant. It is the one place for your employees to ask questions and get the latest HR/benefits-related answers and perform important tasks.

  • Ask questions via text, collaboration tools, or voice and get a fast response—all from one single, user-friendly interface.
  • Take actions proactively—the Digital Conversation Hub walks your employees through the specific steps to perform tasks and reaches out to other HR/benefits/payroll solutions and systems to gather data—even notifies a manager for approval if needed.
  • Allow your employees to complete a wide range of tasks—on/off/crossboarding, get information on payroll and taxes, modify deductions, review 401K, PTO, maternity leave, policy updates, and enroll in special programs and more.

A natural, personalized conversation.

When your employees and their families interact with the Digital Conversation Hub, the experience is like the one they have chatting with family and friends or with solutions like Siri® or Alexa™. Free of legalese and HR speak. And best of all, the Digital Conversation Hub knows who the employee is and how to best help.

Employee states: “Someone at work is harassing me, and I don’t know what to do about it.”

Socrates.ai answers: “Okay, let me help you. Don’t worry, everything here is completely confidential. I can provide you with contact information or have an expert contact you. Which do you prefer?”
