Microsoft and Darwinbox said they’ll collaborate to help global organizations leverage “the right tools to succeed in the evolving world of work.” The companies said the collaboration will include integrations between Darwinbox and the Microsoft product ecosystem, and co-innovation on solutions to enhance employee experience.
The relationship will also accelerate joint go-to-market activities in all markets that the companies operate in.
The companies said Microsoft’s cloud, AI, business apps and Microsoft 365 solution areas, along with Darwinbox’s HR technology, will enable organizations to leverage their workforce to the extent possible. Darwinbox’s cloud-based HCM platform serves HR across the entire employee lifecycle with new employee experiences and AI -powered technology.
“Our collaboration with Darwinbox builds on our focus of co-innovating with our customers to empower organizations across India to do more with less,” said Microsoft India President Anant Maheshwari.
Integrations, Wide and Deep
Deep integrations and multiple lines of co-innovation between the companies will allow Darwinbox to deliver a “unique and differentiated value proposition” to customers worldwide. As part of the collaboration, Darwinbox will adopt Microsoft Azure in order to enhance its Human Capital Management SaaS platform.
Darwinbox said its mobile-first platform will enhance and personalize employee experience by bringing HR transactions and experiences into the flow of work with Dynamics 365 and Microsoft 365 platforms like Teams, Viva and Azure Active Directory. The company has taken advantage of Microsoft’s Power BI to augment its AI-based predictive analytics engine so it can build visual analytics dashboards to help employees use data more effectively and enable faster business decisions.
In addition, strategic product and engineering collaborations between the two companies will improve innovation around workforce management, payroll management, benefits, talent management and acquisition, they said.
Meanwhile, Microsoft made an equity investment in Darwinbox to facilitate their joint mission of helping organizations unify their employee lifecycle, according to media reports.
