PeopleStrong celebrated its Annual Product Launch Event ‘AltifyHR’ on 15 February 2019, at ITC Maratha, Mumbai with over 240+ CXO’s including leading luminaries of Tech & Talent from Indian enterprises, customers, prospects, International analysts & the ‘Strong’ team came together for an evening to witness the launch of India’s biggest #HRTech products. With 4 product launches in under 60 minutes, PeopleStrong, wrote #TheNewCodeofWork by becoming Asia’s first open and connected HR product company.
The event began with a Pre-launch workshop conducted by HR Tech Maestro Mr. Abhijit Bhaduri who led the discussions along-with Mr. Prakash Rao and selected group of HR and Technology leaders who had pre-registered for the same. The workshop through a “kaleidoscope on workforce data” and creation of “Storyboard” for Employee experience Products generated enough curiosity amongst audience and it was further amplified with next session which was on HRTech” Buzzwords”. Here is a photo summary of the same.
The #HRTech community was awaiting with full fervor about the most exciting part of the evening i.e. our products launch but before this they were treated to a spectacle of what went by in 2018 and before.
Quoting from Adrian’s Blog Here is a quick recap of 2018.
And over that year, much has been accomplished:
• 300+ new ideas were delivered across all products. Some of the highlights include major UX revamps for Worklife and Learning, AI enabled contextual conversations for Recruit and Jinie API as a service. (What is Jinie?)
• 50+ integrations across all domains such as Monster.com, Outlook and Microsoft Teams.
• 700,000 users over 10 million transactions via 500,000 devices.
• One customer added every week across 14+ industries.
• And -20+ partners across domains. These are not flimsy reseller partnerships, but deep integrations that allow Alt WorkLife to act as a single login for users to access any partners solutions.
“We have always believed that any technology which adds complexities to the user’s life is not worth it. The new world of work needs products which are open to connect and integrate with other apps and can provide a unified view to the users, be it in the form of data or experience,” said co-founder and CEO Pankaj Bansal.
What’s coming next in #HRTech?
Under the umbrella of “open, connected and intelligent”, four new products were launched over at Altify 2019.
1. Alt Builder – Business users can create their apps on the go without developers
More than 25% of the work people do in Organizations are still manual in spite of using ERPs and now cloud-based apps.
There are many reasons to that and one of them is created a third-party app is complicated and costly.
With Alt Builder, one doesn’t need to figure out how to fix MS Excel over all the problems that HR has.
With a drag-and-drop interface, you simply assign rules and workflows to create new app after piecing them together just like a jig-saw.
Without any developers’ involvement, one can easily create apps for new use cases and easily interface with existing data/fields that are residing on Alt Worklife.
2. Alt Analytics – Provides a comprehensive view of business data from multiple sources and actionable insights

Every time we have come across HR Analytics, there is a famous anecdote shared by a senior HR leader.
“In her previous board meetings, she has the Sales Director coming in with sales projection reports. The Finance Director would arrive with P&L, etc and IT might come with uptime report whereas HR would arrive with an attendance sheet”
That says a lot about how deprived HR is of useful data and, with that, often viewed as important as an admin jockey.
Alt Analytics aims to change all that and provide HR departments with useful data to make time-sensitive decisions.
To make that possible, it enables the convergence of data across all Alt products and modules and capability to import non-alt data like business/sales/ops as well
With predictive models built using Machine Learning algorithms, one can get the benefit of hindsight, insight and foresight surrounding their HR.

3. Alt Messenger 2.0 – Connecting workspaces securely
An organisation can only truly optimise their performance if they can achieve 1+1=3. That means work generated by meaningful collaboration should outweigh the sum of individual output.
That drove the creation of Alt Messenger, an enterprise-grade secure platform but intuitive to use like a WhatsApp or Telegram.
You may be asking why to re-invent the wheel?
The thing is any work-related communications might be highly confidential. Imagine if a group member is no longer with the company yet he or she remains in the group.
Even if that individual is removed from the group, access to prior information is still available.
With a secure and enterprise level app like Alt Messenger, that won’t happen as information and access are immediately cut off once the outgoing user is removed from the system.
The app is also inclusive in a way as it welcomes your supplier, customer, gig workforce, etc to be part of the platform as it isn’t corporate email address dependent.
And from the get-go, you can launch poll in seconds, set goals for your team members and even set up a wall of fame to provide limelight to achievers.
4. PeopleStrong Developer Community – Plug and play into our products
With an open and connected philosophy, the walk-the-talk moment is truly epitomised in our new developer community.
With this, one can access 50+APIs across Alt Product Suite over two main categories: Transactional APIs and Data APIs.
Developers can even create custom API with the fields and labels you want to give via our API Builder. Each one these products aims to remove the complexities and rigidities which are currently synonymous with traditional enterprise technologies used at work.
The event was concluded with a musical performance by Annu Kapoor, (Bollywood film actor and television presenter) and his team followed by a Gala Dinner.
