Why Mintor

Chat-based solutions

for HR support &

community impact

 

Our vision is to impact billions globally – leaving no-one behind. We believe in radically enhancing HR performance, while empowering millions of digitally disconnected communities and employees, wherever they may be.

With Mintor born and raised in Cape Town, the team was driven by a particular mission to make a marked difference to South Africa’s youth unemployment crisis, which is currently at an astounding 64% (2021). More than a third of South Africans still lack adequate access to computers, phone data or the human support required to get and keep the jobs they need – yet 5 billion people globally use mobile messaging.

Since 2015, our team has focused on devising tech-driven innovations that solve employability issues for underserved communities globally. Over time, we have evolved into the world’s first WhatsApp-based solution to HR support and community impact, designed to empower both employers and their current and future employees – one chat at a time.

The Mintor solution

We develop, customise and deploy chatbot and AI tools that streamline HR processes and community-impact programmes, freeing up managers from repetitive paperwork and helping them to focus more on people.

Accessible any time, anywhere

With 85% of job seekers and workers already using WhatsApp, our intuitive AI-enabled tools allow organisations to reach and support anyone, anywhere, at any time, in a radically more efficient manner.

Intuitive interaction

Our world-first chat-based approach to supporting job seekers and workers from marginalised communities has allowed us to develop outstanding expertise in conversational AI, as well as the know-how required to engage people intuitively.

Easy integration and adoption

Our chat-based platform integrates with existing organisational systems (such as ATS, LMS, CRM and Payroll) and plugs into the mobile chat apps job seekers and workers already use (such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Telegram). 

No additional system or app is required, making integration into business processes and adoption by end users simple and super-easy.
