Nature of Disruption: Quinyx addresses business issues like demand forecasting, strategic planning, labor optimization, time and attendance, scheduling and engagement with the new AI-driven updated software. The solution facilitates with fully integrated time reporting to allow employees submit their applications even in a cell phone. Supporting scheduling function, the software generates intelligent and reliable staff management systems in accordance with the business practices of a company. The solution also drives employee engagement with real-time communication, mood check-in and rewards. Demand forecasting can provide with hyperlocal forecasts, event tracking and required headcount calculation features.

Notably, Quinyx acquired AI workforce optimization company Widget Brain in 2020 to expand its operations.
