Hypercontext originally focused on aiding managers in running effective one-on-one meetings. As demand for performance review management grew, the tool expanded to include performance review generation. 

The AI model behind the tool, based on GPT-4, uses qualitative and quantitative data from one-on-one meetings, making the process more efficient. The tool is designed to provide a starting point for managers to refine reviews rather than generate complete drafts.

While the tool’s AI capabilities have potential, it relies on the quality of input data and the skills of the manager.
