Have you found it difficult to apply for a leave over your company’s mobile app, filling up the several columns? Or, found it cumbersome leaving a feedback on a presentation by a colleague? Try the talking app, to complete the tasks much faster.

Darwinbox voice chat bot recognises the context of an employee’s query and takes the input accordingly. “For instance, if an employee says he is applying for leave as he is not well. The solution recognises it as a sick leave,” Chaitanya Peddi, Co-Founder of Darwinbox, told BusinessLine.

“The voice bot allows employees to give audio feedback on lectures, performances or a presentation. And it is automatically fed into the HR system with minimal effort,” he said.

The two-and-half-year-old start-up has about 80 enterprise customers, with over 500 employees each, covering a total of 2.50 lakh employees. “We cover all the HR needs including recruitment, employee onboarding, payroll, performance and exit management,” he said.

Serial investor Mohandas Pai, Sateesh Andra’s Endiya Partners, US-based investor Lightspeed Ventures have invested $5 million in the company in two rounds. The firm, which as 120 employees, plans to add 80 more by the end of March 2019.

Though it is focussing on enterprises with over 500 employees, Darwinbox is planning to introduce a lighter version, Darwin Lite, in the next six months to address companies with less than 500 employees.

The company, which offers the solution on a pay-per-employee basis, plans to sell the solution abroad as well. “We are already present in Singapore. We are looking at expanding to Indonesia and Malaysia in the next few months,” Chaitanya said.
