Revelian Partnership

Accendo Expands “Assessment Marketplace” With Revelian

Revelian’s award-winning assessment products now available on Accendo’s TalentPulse Platform

Press release: Kuala Lumpur, Apr 14, 2020: Accendo Technologies, a leading provider of talent assessments and career pathing solutions, announced that it had entered into a partnership with Revelian, an Australian-based company specialising in data-driven human behaviour insights, and now part of Criteria Corp, an LA-based leader in psychometric assessments for recruitment.

A core objective of Accendo’s TalentPulse solution is to make it easy for clients to deal with multiple assessment solutions. Many clients face challenges of working with multiple vendors, who provide their assessment reports in their own unique formats. Internal talent management teams then have to manually collate data from all the sources, and then create a unified report that can then be used for meaningful decision making. The Accendo “assessment marketplace” offers clients the flexibility of choosing solutions that meet their needs, with the benefit of dealing only with one vendor – Accendo – who also combines data from all vendors to provide a single report. Accendo’s platform also includes dashboards to help take decisions around succession planning, employee development and talent acquisition.

Speaking about the partnership, Sharma Lachu CEO & Founder, Accendo Technologies, said that “Revelian’s products are a fantastic addition to our portfolio. Revelian’s interactive, reliable and flexible solutions are trusted by top employers around the world to deliver powerful HR insights. We especially see an increased demand for game-based solutions, and Revelian’s world-class products will not only deliver rich insights to HR teams, but also provide a high degree of engagement for the candidates. We look forward to working with them and delivering even greater value to our customers.”

Cherie Curtis, CEO Revelian shared that “As Revelian continues to expand globally we were eager to identify partners interested in and who actively promote psychometric assessments in their region. Accendo is innovative in their approach to find, engage and retain top performers, so our game-based assessment Cognify, was a natural addition to their suite, offering their clients powerful candidate insights.”
