BOSTON, MA – November 28, 2017 –Scout Exchange, a platform for marketplace recruiting, has been declared as a “revolutionary” example of intelligent software in the latest research from leading industry analyst John Sumser of HRExaminer. The 91-page report, entitled “2018 Index of Predictive Tools in HRTech: The Emergence of Intelligent Software,” presents the first ever comprehensive look at the impact of Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Big Data and Neural Nets on the HR Technology Industry.
