Discover how intelliHR works—what problems it can help you solve and who uses it, along with a tour of its features, pricing, and integrations. 

I’ll also explain how intelliHR compares to similar tools.

What Is intelliHR?

intelliHR is a strategic people management platform that helps you enhance performance, culture, engagement, and retention. With built-in analytics and AI, leaders can get actionable insights in real-time about their people and organization.

Founded in Australia in 2014 with the goal to become the No.1 people technology platform in the world, intelliHR is well on the way to achieving this ambition. Currently operating in North America, United Kingdom and the Asia Pacific, intelliHR has been recognized multiple times by G2 for ease-of-use and customer service—a result of customers’ rave reviews of their product and customer support (reflected in their NPS of 61). 

In addition to providing intuitive, easy-to-use tools and automation that help ease the administrative burdens traditionally associated with HR, intelliHR facilitates strategic decision making by helping HR and leaders to better visualize, understand and explore their people data.

3. intelliHR for Leaders

Human capital metrics help leaders to visualize people's data. Everything from performance, to sentiment, to training investment, to how many people they have and where they’re located, is available at the click of a button. With this information at your fingertips, you’re able to make strategic, people-centric decisions that impact people and the bottom line. 

4. intelliHR for Employees 

intelliHR helps create a great place to work, characterised by exceptional employee experiences. Employees are empowered by intelliHR’s self-service tools to manage their personal information, set and track goals, provide feedback, keep their qualifications up to date, and manage learning and development. What they love even more is knowing that the organization is not only listening to them, but when they see the resulting actions they feel heard.

What Challenges Does IntelliHR Help Solve?

1. Streamline manual HR processes with automated workflows

One of the biggest bug-bears of HR is manual, tedious processes. Chasing paper, sending email after email, following up with managers, all this unnecessary admin can be reduced to only a few clicks. 

With intelliHR’s easy-to-use workflows, you can 1) automate, and, then 2) celebrate(!). Workflows allow you to streamline and automate a range of HR processes including employee experience, employee engagement, performance, and compliance. 

Take onboarding new hires from different teams, for example. Automating their welcome messages, documentation requests, and policy sign-offs ensure consistency across your organization and that nothing slips through the cracks.

intelliHR’s new staff member onboarding workflows can be built to start before a new employee steps foot in the door, collecting key information and ensuring they receive a warm welcome.

What customers love about intelliHR’s workflows:

  • Workflows and forms are fully customizable.
  • They can choose from intelliHR’s best-practice templates or create their own.
  • Workflows can be role, team or department-based.
  • Scheduling allows automatic distribution and rules can trigger follow-ups (so HR doesn’t have to!).

“Before intelliHR, our HR team was spending a lot of time on admin tasks - creating, sending, saving forms or information and double handling work. We now have so much more time to focus on our staff and company processes. Helene G - Education Personnel

2. Ditch distributed data with intelliHR’s centralized employee database 

Another major issue faced by HR professionals is distributed people data. Some employee information might live in your payroll system or HRIS, you might have an organizational chart in a PDF form, and other data like headcount and diversity are accessible only in spreadsheet reports. When you add survey and engagement tools to the mix, things start to get pretty complex! 

intelliHR helps unify your HR and employee records in one location. Your people's data is secure, safe, and centralized, so you can spend more time looking after your people than looking for their information. 

Here’s what that looks like:

  • Searchable employee directory with automated org chart.
  • Single self-service employee file with personal details, job information, qualifications, performance, and feedback attached (that also has a manager view).
  • Powerful, real-time analytics for performance, culture, engagement, financials and more that provide instant reporting and a full picture of your workforce.

3. Analytics - get insights in seconds, not hours (or days!)

Do you want to truly understand your people and make people-centric decisions that are based on data, not guesswork, gut feeling, or hours of data analysis? intelliHR’s advanced AI-powered analytics provide insights into your people in real-time. 

Through analytics, you can understand, explore and report on every stage of the employee lifecycle, from attraction to employee engagement and development, to retention and attrition.

intelliHR’s analytics are intuitive and easy to use, letting you:

  • Bring your people data to life with dynamic, interactive graphs, charts and dashboards.
  • Drill down and cross-filter any data by business unit, pay grade, tenure, supervisor, gender, work type and more to get to the source of issues.
  • Identify problems and opportunities and act on them quickly.
  • Monitor sentiment and track changes and trends over time.
  • Receive insights and recommendations that provide deeper insight into your people data.
