June 27, 2019

Alexander Mann Solutions, a UK-based supplier of RPO and MSP services, announced today the acquisition of Toronto-based HR technology company Karen HR Inc.

Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Alexander Mann said the acquisition is a strategic move to accelerate the launch of new digital products.

“The acquisition also extends Alexander Mann Solutions’ global engineering capabilities with teams now based in both Canada and Poland, and further supports the company’s aggressive growth plans and commitment to extending its footprint in the Americas,” the company stated.

Karen HR uses Karen AI, a “cognitive recruiting assistant.” Karen AI integrates with existing applicant tracking systems to enhance recruitment processes and boost candidate engagement.

Karen AI is able to rank hundreds of resumes against jobs per second and can be deployed to engage with job seekers via chat or SMS, while the platform’s “shortlisting and conversion” capability provides hirers a deeper insight into a candidate’s personality and team fit. The Karen Frontier digital assistant answers employees’ common HR-related queries to an enterprise’s workforce.

“Whilst we have previously built and successfully deployed Robotic Process Automation and AI capabilities into our existing client solutions it is crucial that we are continually innovating and investing in technical expertise,” said Rosaleen Blair, founder and CEO of Alexander Mann Solutions.
