For fast organizations who thrive on growth and building cultures of human achievement, SenseiOS is a family of work apps designed to engage your people while helping them to communicate, orchestrate work, and make better decisions.

The SenseiOS apps operate with a shared data layer that make them wise beyond their parts and allows work and learning to happen faster for individuals, teams, and companies. Some of the apps in SenseiOS are core. These apps are essential for organizations to successfully have connectivity and collaboration, and are included in every SenseiOS instance. Others are add-ons, available to better match the platform to the needs of each business.

ConnectConnect
ConnectSenseiOS’ Connect app is a complete social hub, integrated throughout the entire workflow, providing social recognition and validation to bolster morale and reinforce each team member’s desire to do their best work. Connect acts as an amplifier of a company’s culture, unifying and growing the best aspects of the organization and connecting team members to their work and to each other. Team members can post updates, news, links, photos, and videos for people to like and comment on. Connect also automatically generates posts to highlight birthdays, work anniversaries, when a donation is made through the Giving app, or when a peer recognition Kudo is given. Connect Posts By creating a central place for peer recognition and reward, Connect exposes the successes of an organization, team, or individual, creating awareness around success stories, collecting further support from the rest of the company, and building on desirable cultural elements. Recognition shared socially on Connect also ties back to One-on-Ones, building a case for each team member’s contribution toward the success of the organization.

GivingGiving
GivingGiving is SenseiOS’ unique take on corporate social responsibility. The program rewards team members on positive performance with donation dollars, which can be applied to charitable organizations of a team member’s choice. The entire program is managed through SenseiOS, from allocating donation dollars to the team member’s selection of charity and donation amount. SenseiOS even calculates top performers and displays them in the Giving Leaderboard, visible to all users. Giving Options By integrating with Connect, Giving donations can be celebrated across the company.
GroupsGroups
GroupsAs companies grow, getting the right information to the right people, setting permissions, and granting access controls become more complex. With SenseiOS' Groups, you can combine people together into static and dynamic groups, facilitating access and restriction issues, giving you the freedom to work without process getting in the way.   New groups can be added at any time to streamline communication.

NewsNews
NewsNews is a comprehensive view on the updates from the company and other team members, giving your people a single unified view of all communications. Divided into three sections, People, Social & Events, and Company news, team members can see and interact with events, announcements, and news posted by anyone at the company. They can RSVP to events, and like and comment on posts in the social feed directly from the News page. News App Important news items can be pinned to the top of the page as a feature to draw attention to the article. News items are easily created by anyone at the company to share news, updates, events, and announcements. Featured images can be added to any news item, driving engagement.
NotificationsNotifications
NotificationsEvery feature in SenseiOS is integrated into the Notifications engine, which provides multiple channels and formats for delivery of notifications. The Notifications API provides easy integration for third party systems to unify notification delivery.  
PeoplePeople
PeopleAs companies grow, especially as they surpass 150 people, it becomes more and more difficult to get to know everyone. SenseiOS’ People app helps team members get to know each other, find people with the skills they need, get in touch with them, and create connections across the organization. People App Each profile page includes a photo, contact details, links to social media accounts, bio information, work history, and social data such as Connect posts, Kudos sent and received, Academy badges, and Giving items. Each team member can also answer a set of customizable question about themselves to give their colleagues insights into who they are - making it easier to create connections and find colleagues with common interests. The SenseiOS seating map leverages swipe card data to help team members locate each other in the office, saving time searching for people. Swipe data also lets people easily find out whether someone is not in yet, in but away at the moment, travelling, or on vacation (since travel and vacation are both booked through the platform).Team members can also easily access the company’s organizational chart to see reporting structure and help find direct reports and supervisors. Phone Dialer allows team members to dial their colleagues desk phone or mobile directly from within SenseiOS. This feature also works for other frequently dialed phone numbers.
Add-Ons
AcademyAcademy
AcademyWith the expectations of personalized learning and development and the time pressures that today’s work teams routinely come up against, leaders of growing organizations face a range of challenges in creating and delivering high caliber training content in an on-demand world. It doesn’t stop at curating and supplying the needed materials – progress, results, and participation need to be tracked and organized. SenseiOS’ Academy app is a content curation and delivery tool for all training initiatives, knowledge sharing, and professional development. Academy presents social learning and teachable moments throughout the day-to-day experience of your teams, including support for learning modules, content management, and Quick Talks video answers to FAQs. Academy Activity Academy supports a wide variety of content types, such as traditional learning modules videos, document uploads, and links. Items can be tagged to job types, task templates, and inline help modules so they can be surfaced as teachable moments. Users can comment on or ‘like’ any item as a way to provide feedback to administrators and to socialize learnings to other team members. That social element, the feedback and engagement with the learning content, whether it is a quick video that someone made of a colleague making coffee in a cool device, or a learning module on a key skill in their craft - the fact that as team members "like" or engage with that content that interaction is not merely contained within the LMS, but forms part of the social landscape encouraging others to engage with the content. Academy Catalogue Different learning styles and content types were designed into Academy from the beginning, providing unparalleled flexibility in how you structure and deliver your learning content.
Candidate360Candidate360
Candidate360To solve the challenges around hiring, fast growing organizations must move away from traditional siloed solutions that not only create disconnection between your recruiting team and the rest of your company but also diminish the hiring experience. SenseiOS' Candidate360 app helps connect the dots as it supports your hiring teams and tracks prospective team members from their first interaction, through the onboarding process, and throughout their career at your organization. It helps empower new team members with integrated onboarding and training infrastructure to help them become fully productive faster and shorten the learning curve. Candida360 Candidate360 helps to create a seamless candidate experience with templates to create consistent, on-brand communications, automated scheduling of meetings and interviews, and complete coordination of tasks to prep the interview teams beforehand, schedule interviews, and collect post-interview feedback to create a seamless candidate experience. By establishing a set of custom criteria for each role, Candidate360 strengthens your company’s culture by helping you identify the candidates that are an ideal fit for your company. Its framework streamlines what your people look for in potential hires and allows for full visibility between recruiters and hiring managers, thereby eliminating friction and improving speed to hire by focusing the hiring decisions on common core values. Candidate360_HiringDimensions Candidate360 arms your hiring teams with the data they need to take interviewing to the next level. Pre-interview briefs give your hiring managers all the information need, delivered in a format they will actually use that’s easy enough to ensure high utilization. Interviewers receive the candidate’s resume, the job details, culture and skills dimensions to gauge the candidate against, and notes from previous rounds of interviews. The brief also includes links to training hosted on the platform, tailored to the needs of the interviewer: for instance, best practices for a first-time interviewer or updates on position requirements for experienced team members. Candidate360_InterviewBrief At the end of each round, interviewers are asked to rate the candidate. Rather than relying on a subjective numeric score, Candidate360 prompts interviewers to rate the candidate relative to the current team on several custom attributes. This is based on the idea that every new hire should make the team they are joining incrementally better - at least on some attributes - otherwise the team will remain stagnant or decline over time. Candidate36-_interviewRatings With SenseiOS' Candidate360, your team is supported with the information they need to make data-driven hiring decisions. Post-interview surveys are mobile-friendly and optimized for convenience with users seeing average completion rates of 80-90%. Each successive interviewer receives the previous post-interview notes, questions, watchouts, and praise, setting up interviewers in later rounds to delve deeper into each candidate’s experience and personality. This gives a more complete view of candidates’ fit for the role and for the company and helps to push them away from their rehearsed interview script into true answers. Candidate360_InterviewWatchouts Data from within SenseiOS allows you to easily identify trends, like which interviewers have the highest success rate based on the subsequent actual performance of hiring cohorts they interviewed. These top performers can then be recognized publicly across the organization with badges or kudos and can be called upon to share their knowledge with others in the organization, spreading best practices and improving your entire hiring practice. Take full advantage of your team members’ existing personal networks to access a pool of highly relevant candidates. Candidate360 makes it quick and easy for team members to view open positions and refer candidates. Through SenseiOS, you can then promote incentives to gain more referrals and publicly recognize team members who refer successful candidates. From within the platform, your hiring team can identify people who may have crossed career paths with potential candidates and solicit feedback on them. Candidate360_Referral SenseiOS’ reporting suite gives you access to view and share your recruiting best practices. Through the shared wisdom layer, Candidate360 deeply integrates your hiring practices with work and performance apps that touch your entire company, ensuring that hiring-related tasks, including interview surveys, remain front of mind and highly prioritized to drive you growth.
