The innovative service was awarded under the category Personnel Development, for services and products that contribute to the employee personal and professional growth.
PEOPLECERT received an award at the Business I.T. Excellence (BITE) 2012 ceremony that was held in Athens, in recognition of the innovation of its web proctoring service which allows candidates to book and take their exam online, wherever they are.
The BITE awards are designed to identify exemplary achievements within the IT industry that demonstrate innovation and contribute to the overall business growth. Through three different categories, the awards recognize best practice by organizations products, processes, and professionals who have achieved world-class performance.
The organization’s web proctoring service offers a complete online exam experience for professionals, who, through a simple click on the PEOPLECERT website can search for a globally recognized certification such as ITIL, IASSC Lean Six Sigma and ISO 20000, book and take their exam online as soon as in 4 hours and get their instant results and e-certificate. The service offers candidates a suite of online tools that help them go through the total exam experience without having to travel to an exam location.
To take the exam, candidates don’t need to download any software and the exam session is monitored by a real proctor, who ensures security and integrity throughout. The proctor guides the candidate throughout the exam process, from start to finish. At the end of the exam, candidates can view their results and once their official results are out, they can download their e-certificate and upload any documents or prerequisites needed for their exam, while an online certificate verification service allows third parties to verify the validity of the certificate online.
The organization’s web proctoring service is being used by large corporations, training organizations and individuals worldwide, who prefer the ease and flexibility it offers. So far, 97% of those candidates who have taken a web proctored exam say they would choose it again.
The overall service is being developed by PEOPLECERT’s R&D department which allows for ongoing enhancements and customised features, meeting different customer demands.
‘We are delighted to receive this award, as it proves that our commitment to offering innovative solutions that really make a difference to corporations and professionals pays off. Our web proctoring service is truly an effort to provide simple and quick services through which professionals can further enhance and prove their skills and know how, and therefore, further increase their employability and career prospects’, says Panagiotis Fiampolis, R&D Director.
