Everblue Doubles Year-Over-Year Virtually Proctored Exam Volume
The trend of digital transformation continues and grows following the COVID-19 pandemic.
Everblue, a technology company that digitizes and administers online certification and licensure exams, offered twice as many remote exams in 2021 than it did the previous year.
"The majority of online exams administered were for our state government clients," said Chris Boggiano, president of Everblue. "I think this speaks to the desire to innovate and modernize in the public sector. Digitizing state contractor exams ended up not only being necessary during the pandemic, but the preferred route afterward because a well-built, customized online testing process is more efficient for both the state staff and the individual test-taker. Online testing removes the hassle of scheduling an appointment, taking time away from work, traveling to a testing center, and appearing in person – all of which can be done from home now."
At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was no surprise that many organizations scrambled to digitize their content in order to continue operating under stay-at-home quarantine rules. Organizations offering in-person training, exams, and certifications quickly pursued online alternatives to help candidates reach their goals.
Although the pandemic forced these organizations to modernize, the benefits of digital transformation suddenly became apparent: greater efficiency, more convenience, and reduced frustrations, to name a few. As the world has largely returned to "normal," these organizations have not only kept their virtual offerings but added onto them.
State government agencies in Florida, Massachusetts, and Arkansas digitized a handful of exams at first, to determine whether it made sense to move away from legacy paper-based testing. After successful soft launches, they digitized additional exams.
"We always knew that online test delivery and remote proctoring would be game-changers,"
