In its latest move to help businesses improve employee productivity, Microsoft has agreed to acquire Seattle-based people analytics software developer VoloMetrix.
VoloMetrix’s service is capable of extracting and analysing anonymised, aggregated data from a company’s corporate communication systems. According to the company, this helps to create “measurable behavioural profiles around your company’s everyday processes, providing unparalleled understanding into the real costs and ROI of sales calls, customer service operations, brainstorming sessions, weekly update meetings, and more.”
Microsoft has confirmed that it will be integrating the VoloMetrix solution with Office 365 and its soon-to-be-launched Delve Organizational Analytics feature.
“We expect to launch an early preview program for Delve Organizational Analytics within the next month, and general availability of the initial release of the integrated Office 365 service by the end of this calendar year,” said Rajesh Jha, corporate vice president of Outlook and Office 365.
