Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) March 31, 2006
MacKay Edge Assessment Group (http://www.mackayedge.com), an emerging leader in employee hiring, selection and development solutions, announced an agreement to provide skills testing solutions to Career Match Solutions, Inc. (http://www.careermatch.cn). Career/Match™ provides China's first fully integrated e-Recruitment solution offering video resumes, first-to-last applicant qualification reporting, psychometric assessment and skills testing, as well as other unique features not available on any other job board or e-Recruitment site.
MacKay Edge will utilize its newly developed web-based testing platform, Edgeforce™ to provide skills testing ranging from office and clerical tests to industrial and manufacturing. Edgeforce™ is the new on-demand testing engine developed by MacKay Edge to provide plug-in free and platform independent assessments across the globe. Bryan Wempen, President of MacKay Edge Assessment Group, is enthusiastic about this market expansion. “We have translated our skills assessments into six languages, including Traditional and Simplified Chinese, in order to support our global expansion.”
Don Carter, CEO of Career Match Solutions, says, “We are extremely pleased to partner with MacKay Edge to offer the Edgeforce™ solution in China. This unique skills testing platform together, with our e-Recruitment solution, will provide a complete screening mechanism for finding the right talent for employers in China faster and more cost effectively.”
MacKay Edge has also signed a contract with a large European staffing agency to provide skills testing to their offices in France, Belgium and Germany. Wempen explains, “We have developed Edgeforce™ with ultimate flexibility in mind so that we can adapt our technology to the emerging markets around the world. Flexibility and fairness are very important to us. Edgeforce™ allows our testing to be accessed over a low bandwidth connection, and doesn’t require any special browser plug-ins to function correctly.”
With a workforce of over 700 million, China is a virtual untapped source as an employment skills testing market. “The idea of being first in China is amazing. We are confident that this expansion will fuel our expansion globally.”
