The snippets of the conversation with Srinivasa Bharathy, MD & CEO, Adrenalin Esystems.

Could you briefly describe Adrenalin Esystems’ experience as a provider of solutions across the spectrum of human resources processes?
For over two decades, Adrenalin has pioneered HR tech. Adrenalin created a full HRMS with employee self-service (ESS), manager self-service (MSS), and payroll automation in 2002 to isolate HR tech from ERP systems. Also, Adrenalin launched Adrenalin Max on the cloud in 2008, keeping up with the tech world. In 2012, Adrenalin debuted its mobile HCM to provide uniform experiences

across platforms. Since then, it has evolved to satisfy employee needs. In 2018, we introduced Sara, an AI copilot to automate and speed up redundant chores to free up HR and employee capacity for strategic projects. We were one of the first HR software suppliers to use AI. New features including generative AI integration, talent scan, and AI-based resume evaluation have eased talent acquisition and management.

We create and redefine HR technology to increase employee experience and engagement. We shape HR technology and improve employee experiences worldwide through pioneering developments and a global footprint in South Asia, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia.
