In morning trade the ELMO Software Ltd (ASX: ELO) share price has pushed higher following the release of an announcement.

At the time of writing the cloud-based HR and payroll solutions provider's shares are up 1.5% to $6.88.

What did ELMO announce?

This morning ELMO announced that it is joining forces with UTS, Australia's leading technology university, on an innovative product development project.

According to the release, the project will place predictive analytic tools that leverage artificial intelligence for the benefit of ELMO's customers across Australia and New Zealand.

Management believes that by drawing upon the combined strengths of both entities, ELMO will be able to provide HR and payroll professionals with a deeper understanding of their workforce and ultimately allow them to make more informed business decisions at a faster pace.

The company's CEO, Danny Lessem explained: "From day one, ELMO's primary focus has been to help employers automate processes, streamline workflows, and provide a seamless employee experience. Through this partnership, ELMO will be able to build solutions that will bring to light the right information at the right time, so the smartest decisions can be made."

"Through predictive analytic tools that leverage workforce data, our customers will gain better insights into their people and ascertain probable employee behaviour. These insights could then be used to refine strategies around recruitment, workforce planning, professional development, succession management, benefits and remuneration," Mr Lessem added.

The partnership gives ELMO access to UTS' state-of-the-art Data Arena. The release explains that this interactive data visualisation facility was developed to help researchers and data scientists intuitively explore large and complex data in great detail. It features a 360-degree screen, 6 projectors and 3D modelling capability.
