“Great Product. eSkill is easy to set up, easy to adjust for specific needs, and has all the assessment exams we need to examine our associate qualifications in an efficient and timely manner. They have done an excellent job with the product role out, initial training, and ongoing support (although ongoing support is not really necessary due to the intuitive nature of the product). Having used 2 other testing software, this product is light-years ahead in every way.”

“eSkill Superior Testing at a fraction of the Cost. Like the variety of tests and ability to create testing matched for a specific position. Excellent options of testing to use for a variety of candidates. So glad that we are able to use this program.
