Explorance Wins Gold in 2021 Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology Awards

Montreal, Quebec – December 10, 2021 – Explorance, a provider of People Insights, won a coveted Brandon Hall Group gold award for excellence in the “Best Advance in AI and Machine Learning” category.

Explorance’s win was announced on December 9, 2021, during an online ceremony hosted by Brandon Hall Group. A complete list of all winners can be viewed on the Brandon Hall Group website.

The gold award comes shortly after Explorance introduced its breakthrough solution for employee comment analysis. BlueML is the only machine learning tool of its kind trained on real employee responses and scenarios to deliver useful and actionable insights in seconds. Until BlueML, comment analysis tools on the market leveraged machine learning models trained to analyze generic text-based data that lacked the specialization necessary to turn employee responses into decision-grade intelligence.

BlueML is an integral part of Explorance’s full suite of solutions, helping accelerate the insight-to-action cycle for organizations. The BlueML dashboard automatically scans and categorizes employee comments, providing polarity sentiment analysis and forward-looking recommendations that leaders can use to drive timely and meaningful action.

“This recognition by Brandon Hall Group reinforces the feedback we have been receiving from our customers,” said Explorance CEO Samer Saab. “BlueML is the fruit of our relentless commitment to providing useful solutions that help transform data into insights to support organizations, at scale, in taking meaningful actions when it comes to their most important asset: their people.”

A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives evaluated the entries based upon the following criteria:

  • Product: What was the product’s breakthrough innovation?
  • Unique differentiators: What makes the product unique, and how does it differ from any competing products?
  • Value proposition: What problem does the product solve and/or what need does this product address?
  • Measurable results: What are the benefits customers can expect to experience as a result of using this product
