The Knowledge Process Outsourcing or KPO Industry is young and growing. With business execution directly correlated to talent quality and its deployment, both the quality of talent and efficiency of sourcing the same is very important.

AMCAT – ITeS is Aspiring Minds assessment suite for the KPO industry. Combined with our sourcing solutions it offers a complete solution of sourcing, evaluating and engaging talent.
The KPO industry has varied talent requirements. While language communication and analytical skills are considered a must, multiple processes require specific domain skills. The industry has a unique challenge of not only acquiring the right aptitude but also either finding domain knowledge and ensuring trainability in the domain.
The addressable supply of candidates for KPOs includes the 4+ million graduates every year, finding employable candidates remains a challenge. Less than 10% of all graduates are employable or trainable for the sector. Thus, not only finding employable graduates possessing the relevant KSAs (knowledge, skills and attitude) but even finding trainable candidates is challenging. The latter is more daunting since trainability is hard to predict.
AMCAT-ITeS has been designed such that while evaluating employability for roles in the KPO industry, it is capable of predicting trainability in soft skills and domain ensuring job success in knowledge processing roles. Today AMCAT-ITeS has been successfully deployed by several of the largest KPOs working across analytics, market research, finance, credit analysis, etc. Success in these roles depends on both analytical ability, domain knowledge and soft skills.
AMCAT-ITeS® is a comprehensive assessment suite which evaluates candidates across competencies required to succeed in the KPO and ITeS industry. Cognitive skills including analytical reasoning and number skills together with domain knowledge are automatic choices for pre-hiring assessment at KPOs.
AMCAT-ITeS includes the following modules relevant for KPOs:
We recommend a combination of these plug and play modules depending on the job role and targeted supply. AMCAT ITeS has been used successfully to hire talent for all kinds of roles including voice, finance and accounting, customer support, technical support, collections, out bound sales, data entry, transaction, etc.
AMCAT-ITeS® modules have been benchmarked against actual performance of KPO workers. Specific modules and sub traits show strong correlation to performance ensuring effective prediction of performance across profiles. For e.g. AMCAT Logical Ability and AMCAT English are strong predictors of success across roles. In addition, Performance in finance and number crunching roles show significant correlation to AMCAT Quantitative Ability. Implementing AMCAT ITeS can help improve talent performance by over 40%.
The capability to pick trainable candidates i.e. pick raw talent and craft them into successful ITeS professionals is the key to success. Deployment of AMCAT ITeS has at repeated instances dramatically improved training efficiency. Using benchmarked assessment cut-offs, training success stands at over 99%.
