    【美国】HR的AI助手Paradox公司获得4000万美元B轮融资 Paradox是总部位于亚利桑那州斯科茨代尔的对话式AI平台,使人力资源和人才团队能够自动化管理任务并提供实时的候选人和员工沟通,已筹集了4,000万美元的B轮融资。   对话式AI平台,帮助人力资源和人才团队自动化管理任务并提供实时候选人和员工沟通的对话式AI平台今天宣布获得由Brighton Park Capital牵头的4000万美元B轮融资。这家位于亚利桑那州的初创公司拥有200多家全球企业客户,其中包括麦当劳,CVS Health和联合利华,将利用这笔资金来加快其对AI解放的力量的愿景,即人工智能将帮助人们做好最好的工作。 Paradox创始人兼首席执行官Aaron Matos说:“没人喜欢招聘或HR,因为他们喜欢筛选简历,安排面试或管理文书工作。” “我们的客户喜欢我们的AI助手Olivia,因为她帮助他们恢复了战略人员的工作,从而使他们首先进入了招聘和人力资源领域。” 领导布莱顿公园资本(Brighton Park Capital)交易的合伙人Mike Gregoire说,投资Paradox的决定植根于对未来的明确看法。 Gregoire表示:“ Paradox从根本上与世界发展方向保持一致。” Gregoire在2005年至2012年期间担任基于云的人才管理先驱Taleo的首席执行官,当时该公司被甲骨文以19亿美元的价格收购。“随着数字化转型对于组织弹性和长期成功变得越来越重要,该公司正在采用越来越多的软件。Paradox是同类产品中的佼佼者,我们很高兴与他们的团队合作以实现对工作未来的愿景。” 借助辅助智能塑造工作的未来 在2019年,Paradox受到SAP.iO Foundries的欢迎,这是SAP全球顶级无股权启动加速器的全球网络,并且是SAP AppCenter的合作伙伴。Paradox还与许多世界领先的招聘和人才管理系统进行了协作集成;包括Workday,ADP,Cornerstone,iCims,SmartRecruiters,HiredScore,Beamery,TMP,Avature,SmashFly / Symphony Talent和TalentReef。 Paradox的AI助手Olivia通过自动化常见的招聘,人力资源和人才管理任务(例如回答候选人和员工的问题,筛选潜在客户和申请人,自动安排面试,收集反馈,简化入职和主持虚拟活动)来增强这些解决方案,所有这些都通过简单的对话实现经验。Olivia会说100多种语言,并且可以在任何地方进行对话-通过网络,短信,主要消息收发应用(例如Facebook Messenger,WhatsApp和WeChat)以及语音助手(例如Alexa和Google Assistant)进行交流。 在亚利桑那州建立下一家伟大的科技公司 自2016年成立以来,Paradox已发展成为全球140多名员工,不仅有助于塑造其行业格局,而且还有助于塑造亚利桑那州的经济。Paradox被评为2017年亚利桑那州创新挑战赛的获胜者,最近还获得了大凤凰城商会的杰出创新者IMPACT奖。 “我们致力于建立下一个伟大的亚利桑那州软件公司,”亚利桑那州本地人Matos说。“在这个州,我们拥有不可思议的人才,我们已经建立了一支充满热情的团队,致力于帮助我们的行业解决地球上最大的人才挑战。我们将继续在美国和全球范围内扩展业务,但亚利桑那州是我们的故乡,我们为在这里不断壮大团队而感到自豪。” 受客户痴迷启发的文化 Matos表示对以客户为中心的指导价值的坚定承诺是公司成功的关键动力。这些价值观影响着公司做出的每个决定-从制造哪种产品到员工如何优先安排时间。在全球COVID-19大流行期间,这一承诺尤为突出。 “令人鼓舞的是,我们的团队和技术如何帮助我们的许多客户适应从未见过的招聘和人才管理挑战,” Matos说。“我对辅助技术和对话式AI可以为人才团队,候选人和员工带来的影响从未充满信心,因为我们已经看到了结果。我很高兴与布莱顿公园资本(Brighton Park Capital)合作,并借助迈克不可思议的行业经验来帮助我们的客户继续创新。” Gregoire将担任Paradox董事长,为Paradox董事会带来20多年的行政领导经验。在Taleo,他带领公司从早期的SaaS创新者和申请人跟踪系统的创建者转变为拥有2000万用户的HCM强大企业。离开Taleo后,Gregoire加入CA Technologies,担任董事长兼首席执行官,带领公司在不到六年的时间里市值增加了105亿美元。 Gregoire表示,他看到了巨大的潜力,可以将Paradox的路线图加倍,并继续与领先的HCM提供商合作,以增强从招聘和雇员到招聘人员,人力资源负责人和招聘经理的每个人的体验。格雷戈尔说:“亚伦组建了一支世界级的团队,对这个市场的需求有清晰的了解。” “我们很高兴能继续前进,并支持我从根本上相信将改变世界改善世界的方式的愿景。” 关于Brighton Park Capital Brighton Park Capital是位于康涅狄格州格林威治的投资公司,专门从事软件,信息服务,技术支持的服务和医疗保健。该公司寻求对提供高度创新解决方案的公司进行投资,与强大的管理团队合作,并带来符合其公司独特要求的专用增值功能。有关布莱顿公园首都的更多信息,请访问https://www.brightonparkcap.com。 在创始人兼首席执行官亚伦·马托斯(Aaron Matos)的带领下,Paradox提供了一个对话式AI平台,使人力资源和人才团队能够自动执行管理任务,并提供实时的候选人和员工沟通。Paradox与许多世界领先的招聘和人才管理系统进行了协作集成,包括Workday,ADP,Cornerstone,iCims,SmartRecruiters,HiredScore,Beamery,TMP,Avature,SmashFly / Symphony Talent和TalentReef。其AI助手Olivia通过自动化常见的招聘,人力资源和人才管理任务(例如回答候选人和员工问题,筛选潜在客户和申请人,自动安排面试,收集反馈,简化入职和主持虚拟事件)来增强这些解决方案,所有这些都通过对话体验来完成。 该初创公司为麦当劳,CVS Health和联合利华等200多家全球企业客户提供服务。 自2016年成立以来,Paradox已发展成为全球140多名员工。 以上由AI翻译完成,仅供参考,来自官网。 以下为官网英文原文: https://www.paradox.ai/news/paradox-raises-40m-series-b-to-help-companies-embrace-the-future-of-work-with-conversational-ai SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- May 11, 2020 -- Paradox, the conversational AI platform helping HR and talent teams automate administrative tasks and deliver real-time candidate and employee communications, announced today $40M in Series B funding, led by Brighton Park Capital. The Arizona-based startup, whose 200+ global enterprise clients include McDonald’s, CVS Health, and Unilever, will leverage the funding to expedite its vision of a future where AI is a liberating force to help people do their best work. “No one goes into recruiting or HR because they like screening resumes, scheduling interviews, or managing paperwork,” said Paradox founder and CEO Aaron Matos, who started his career as an HR practitioner. “Our clients love our AI assistant Olivia because she helps them get back to doing the strategic people work that got them into recruiting and HR in the first place.” Mike Gregoire, the Partner who led the deal for Brighton Park Capital, said the decision to invest in Paradox was rooted in a clear view toward the future. “Paradox is fundamentally aligned with where the world is going,” said Gregoire, who served as CEO of cloud-based talent management pioneer Taleo from 2005 through 2012, when the company was acquired by Oracle for $1.9 billion. “The company is seeing increased adoption as digital transformation becomes more critical to organizational resiliency and long-term success. Paradox is the clear leader in its category and we’re thrilled to partner with their team to execute a vision for the future of work.” Shaping the Future of Work with Assistive Intelligence In 2019, Paradox was welcomed into the elite SAP.iO Foundries, SAP’s global network of top-tier no-equity startup accelerators, and is an SAP AppCenter Partner. Paradox is also collaboratively integrated with many of the world’s leading recruiting and talent management systems; including Workday, ADP, Cornerstone, iCims, SmartRecruiters, HiredScore, Beamery, TMP, Avature, SmashFly/Symphony Talent, and TalentReef. Paradox’s AI assistant Olivia augments those solutions by automating common recruiting, HR, and talent management tasks — like answering candidate and employee questions, screening leads and applicants, automatically scheduling interviews, collecting feedback, streamlining onboarding, and hosting virtual events — all through simple conversational experiences. Olivia speaks more than 100 languages and engages anywhere conversations happen — via the web, text message, major messaging apps like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and WeChat, and through voice assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant. Among Paradox’s accomplishments in the past year: Recognized as one of the best HR products of 2019 by Human Resource Executive Selected as the 2019 Talent Solutions Impact Award winner by Recruiting Trends & Talent Tech Named HCM Solution of the Year at the 17th Annual American Business Awards Identified by Forbes as one of America’s Best Startup Employers Building the Next Great Tech Company in Arizona Since its founding in 2016, Paradox has grown to more than 140 global employees and not only helped shape the landscape of its industry, but also Arizona’s economy. Paradox was named a winner of the 2017 Arizona Innovation Challenge, and more recently won the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce’s IMPACT Award for Exceptional Innovator. “We’re committed to building the next great Arizona software company,” said Matos, an Arizona native. “We’re blessed with incredible talent in this state and we’ve built a team that’s passionate about helping our industry solve some of the biggest talent challenges on the planet. We’ll continue to expand across the US and internationally, but Arizona is home and we’re proud to keep growing our team here.” A Culture Inspired by Client Obsession Matos points to a deep commitment to client-centric guiding values as a key driver of the company’s success. Those values influence every decision the company makes — from which products to build to how employees prioritize their time. And that commitment has been particularly acute during the global COVID-19 pandemic. “It’s inspiring to see how quickly our team and our technology has helped many of our clients adapt to hiring and talent management challenges they’ve never seen,” Matos said. “I’ve never been more confident about the impact assistive technology and conversational AI can deliver for talent teams, candidates, and employees, because we’ve seen the results. I’m excited to partner with Brighton Park Capital and lean into Mike’s incredible industry experience to help our clients continue to innovate.” Gregoire will serve as Chairman for Paradox, bringing more than 20 years of executive leadership experience to Paradox’s board of directors. At Taleo, he led the company during its transformation from an early SaaS innovator — and creator of the applicant tracking system — into an HCM powerhouse with 20 million users. After leaving Taleo, Gregoire joined CA Technologies as Chairman and CEO, leading the company to a $10.5 billion increase in market capitalization in less than six years. Gregoire says he sees enormous potential to double down on Paradox’s roadmap and continue partnering with leading HCM providers to enhance experiences for everyone in the hiring process — from candidates and employees, to recruiters, HR leaders, and hiring managers. “Aaron has assembled a world-class team with a clear understanding of what this market needs,” Gregoire said. “We’re excited to be along for the ride and to support a vision that I fundamentally believe will change the way the world works for the better.” About Brighton Park Capital Brighton Park Capital is a Greenwich, Conn.-based investment firm that specializes in software, information services, technology-enabled services, and healthcare.
