SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (September 29, 2023) — ExakTime by Arcoro customers now have a powerful new feature at their fingertips. The construction HR software company has introduced a generative AI tool to its ExakTime platform to assist users in efficiently composing clear, professional company alerts and notifications.
“We’re excited to be bringing the power of AI into our ExakTime platform,” said Jennifer Dungan, Director of Product Management at Arcoro. “This feature is designed to help improve communication and save people time. Our goal is to reduce the amount of effort and time HR and other staff have to spend writing custom messages, whether to individuals, groups or company-wide.”
Arcoro has integrated the OpenAI GPT-4 language model through its partnership with Microsoft Azure.
How does it work?
When customers using the system’s custom alerts and notifications feature open ExakTime to create and send a communication to employees, they’ll find a new button that allows them to “Ask AI to create a message.”
Clicking the button opens a pop-up window where customers can input simple or complex prompts that the AI will use to generate recommendations for the message. Users also have the option to “Regenerate message” for more text recommendations that they can then edit to fit their needs.
The AI tool can assist ExakTime customers in quickly and easily finding the right language for common topics, including:
- Time approval
- Holiday reminders
- Storm watch
- Weekly schedule
- Safety meetings
Employers can send AI-generated messages to individuals, employee groups, or the entire company via email, SMS text or push notification. The AI can also translate English messages to Spanish or French.
The data used to generate AI messages will not be sent or accessible to Microsoft Azure or other third parties. Only the customer and Arcoro will be able to see the data, as outlined in existing customer agreements.
