@ApplaudHR, the leading workforce experience layer, has today announced a new partnership with automation platform @Workato, to bring seamless personalised employee experiences into the workplace.

The new partnership, one of Workato’s first in the EMEA region, will enable Applaud’s customers, including employers and HR teams, to tap into the platform’s ‘recipe library’ of over 400,000 automations. This will mean Applaud customers, who use the platform to streamline their HR and employee wellbeing offerings, can deliver even greater personalised experiences.

Embedded directly into the Applaud platform, customers will now be able to tap into thousands of additional automations ranging from onboarding & offboarding documentation, admin, payroll, employee gifting, employer & employee feedback.

Traditionally, it takes anywhere between 18-24 months to build automations from scratch. By onboarding Workato, Applaud and its customers will cut this time down significantly, gaining immediate access to secure integrations and pre-built automations, in a quick-to-scale solution.

The platform requires no coding experience and comes equipped with automated error handling. Deployment is instant, meaning HR teams and organisations of all maturity levels will benefit and end customers will be able to further personalise their employee experiences – essential during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The full suite of automations will be accessible via the Applaud digital experience layer, meaning end customers do not have to waste time and energy searching cross-platform to create the employee experience they want. Workato’s solution is best-in-class, secure, scalable and cost effective.

Commenting on the news Duncan Casemore, Co-founder and CTO, Applaud said: “Organisations are going through a period of unprecedented change, with workers operating remotely and HR having to move the majority of its operations online. 

“Applaud provides customers with a centralised experience layer that is easy to use and manage. Our platform enables HR teams and employers to pick and choose the automations best fit for their organisation and employees; offering great personalisation.

“By partnering with Workato – one of the best names in the business – we can  further expand the number of automations available, giving customers all of the support they require during these testing times & enabling them to request additional automations ad-hoc.”

Gautham Viswanathan, Chief Product Officer at Workato said: ‘With Applaud, HR professionals can easily automate business processes that span departments and systems by leveraging Workato’s low-code/no-code automation platform that features hundreds of pre-built integrations. 

“With no coding required, anyone in HR can automate and create compelling employee experiences.”
