Manage and Run Certification Programmes

TestReach is an enterprise SaaS solution used by life science companies to manage assessment processes, to ensure compliance, run certification programmes and track employee skills and competencies.

TestReach is transforming how examinations are used in the life sciences industry by providing innovative and easy-to-use functionality to create, deliver, mark and report on tests. We work with leading pharmaceutical companies worldwide who rely on the TestReach application to facilitate the management of their assessments in a secure and robust way, and with an open API, TestReach integrates easily with existing systems.

TestReach can deliver tests in multiple different ways on any type of device. TestReach also includes the option to run exams using remote invigilation. This is where the exam-hall environment is recreated online, and an employee sitting an important exam 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 and to ensure fairness if exam results affect company recognition and rewards.

Life Sciences Companies use TestReach for All Assessment Requirements

Run Compliance Tests and Exams

TestReach enables organisations to verify that the correct person presented to complete a knowledge test and that there was no cheating, meaning that the result of the exam is an accurate reflection on what the person knows. Using TestReach ensures you have the robust data to prove regulatory compliance is understood and adhered to in your organisation. You can respond quickly when compliance reports are required.

Increase Validity and Security of Tests

The use of randomised papers and questions, test timers and secure computer lockdown enable organisations to run tests that are an accurate reflection of actual knowledge levels. With TestReach you can automatically generate test papers according to certain rules applied to questions, so that each person sitting a test gets a unique paper but at the same difficulty level. This reduces the chance of conferring and again gives a better reflection on the actual knowledge of an employee.

Monitor Sales Force Competencies for Product Launches

By running tests before, during and after training and events, including monitoring confidence levels as well as knowledge, TestReach gives clear insights into the effectiveness of training. If there are any worrying gaps in understanding or if, for example, medical representatives are not confident in their knowledge before a new product launch, then TestReach will give you that information via clear charts and analytics.

Running Certification Programmes

If you are running certification programmes, this can be provided in a streamlined way with TestReach. Our end-to-end exam management system enables you to author and create tests easily and deliver them on any device. Our detailed marking module will auto-score questions and issue detailed reports and analytics. You can use the option of remote invigilation to authenticate and monitor the candidate, which increases the validity and security of the exam, and the value of your certification.
