LOS ANGELES, CA March 31, 2009 Criteria Corp, a leading provider of pre-employment testing services, today announced the conclusion of a reciprocal distribution partnership with U.K.-based Skillsarena. Under the terms of the partnership, Criteria will incorporate Skillsarena's Microsoft skills tests into its HireSelect® service and Skillsarena would market selected Criteria test titles in the U.K.
"We're very excited about working with Skillsarena. This partnership provides us with a proven distribution partner in the U.K. and we believe that incorporating Skillsarena's computer skills testing titles into HireSelect® will enhance the value of our service," said David Sherman, Criteria's COO. "This is truly a win-win arrangement for both companies: Skillsarena needed psychometric tests, and many of our customers have been asking about Microsoft skills and computer literacy tests. Our partnership with Skillsarena allows both companies to address their respective needs."
Criteria expects the integration of Skillsarena's tests into HireSelect will be completed by late May.
