Small firms, startups and medium sized enterprises often find recruiting quality talent a challenge. Typically not a large brand, limited marketing resources and restricted reach make it hard to locate and acquire high quality talent. On the other hand, the need for quality and trained talent is all the more important due to the lack of training and mentoring infrastructure available in larger setups.
The smaller scale makes it harder for SMEs to either develop or employ statistically accurate evaluation tools or maintain relationships with 100s of campuses and sourcing partners.
AMCAT has been developed based on statistics collected over thousands of assessments across the country. This allows the platform to evaluate candidates on a national norm. The tool becomes very relevant for SMEs where you can take advantage of the same on the limited sample of people you evaluate.
With limited in house training capabilities, AMCAT’s domain modules allow evaluation of specific skills required for the job ensuring a better match.
AMCAT helps significantly save interview time, eliminating not so good candidates and allowing you to invest interview time and effort on the right set of people.

A recent study with a boutique software development firm established the efficacy of AMCAT for SMEs. The company was able to successfully predict high performing individuals using AMCAT IT. Not only were they able to use the tool as an elimination of not so good candidates, they were able to use the AMCAT IT scores as a selection criterion.
In absence of standard parameters for comparison, companies today rely on proxy parameters like college scores, class XII scores, college name, college city, home city and many such other factors that in reality have no or very low correlation with a candidate's actual potential. Read more
