Support levels
Support is included as standard for the organisations using our testing software. This includes end-user support for managing the tests, analysing the results, etc. We do not directly support the end-users who are taking the tests.

All customers have access to a technical account manager.

Additional support is available to assist customers creating their own content. This is quoted for on a case-by-case basis depending on the customer's requirements. This is also the case for any support around creating an integration using our API that's above clarfying any items in our API documentation.
Support available to third parties

Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
It's a very intuitive system. For a standalone implementation we provide access to a recorded 1h training/introduction video which is typically enough to get customers started and successfully using the system.
Service documentation
Documentation formats
End-of-contract data extraction
Data can be exported from the system by users with appropriate permissions or we can provide an exported copy.
End-of-contract process
At the end of a contract the service access will be revoked. Customers are able to export their data at any time up to this point. We can also provide a copy of the data for a one-off fee if required.

Differences between the mobile and desktop service
We recommend desktop usage wherever possible. We have a huge range of tests and whilst they do work on mobile devices, the user experience of some of our tests, particularly the more in-depth tests, is not as intuitive or even as usable as the desktop user experience.
Service interface
Description of service interface
It's a web page login that allows customers to manage their users, their locations, run reports, create candidates for testing, assign tests to candidates, see results, run reports, etc. All of this functionality is available via our API and hence if preferred, this interface can be bypassed.
Accessibility standards
None or don’t know
Description of accessibility
SuperUsers can create additional users, offices, create test candidates, manage tests, run reports, analyse results, etc.
Accessibility testing
None. It has not been raised as an issue by customers up to this point. Also note the point about this functionality being available through our API and hence it could have a different interface created if required.
What users can and can't do using the API
Once API access has been enabled, we will provide access to a sandbox for customers to work on their integration. Once complete, we will review the implementation and approve it to be moved to the production platform.
All features are available through the API.
API documentation
API documentation formats
Open API (also known as Swagger)

Customisation available
Description of customisation
