TestReach is an enterprise SaaS solution used to run online tests and examinations. It is transforming how examinations are used in financial services by providing innovative and easy-to-use functionality to create, run, mark and report on tests.

TestReach also includes the option to run exams using remote invigilation. This is where the exam-hall environment is recreated online, and a candidate sitting an important exam or test is monitored over-the-web by a trained TestReach supervisor in real-time. This can be used on a ‘spot-check’ basis to enhance compliance with test rules.

TestReach takes corporate assessment to a new level in terms of depth of functionality, flexibility and ease of use, and ensures you have the robust data to prove regulatory compliance is understood and adhered to in your organisation.
