Cirrus Assessment and Creatio Ltd sign strategic partnership
Cirrus Assessment, international provider of cloud-based e-Assessment solutions based in Utrecht, Holland have announced the signing of a strategic partnership with Creatio Ltd, UK qualification and learner management solution provider for Awarding Organisations (AOs) and End Point Assessment Organisations (EPAOs).
Together they will implement new integrations between the Creatio creatiogreen solution and the Cirrus e-assessment platform. Creatio will provide Cirrus Assessment with a permanent UK presence and lead on customer engagements in the UK on behalf of both companies through Creatio’s sector specialist staff to ensure AOs and EPAOs have a single point of contact for configuration, implementation and training, to support the integration process and reduce set-up time and costs.
Vegard Siverten, CEO of Cirrus Assessment says about the partnership:
“At Cirrus it’s always been about providing technology to make life easier and more efficient for our users. Creatio’s ethos is very similar to that of Cirrus; customer-driven and innovative. We are therefore extremely excited to be working with a highly regarded organisation such as Creatio, matching our ambitions and drive to improve educational and professional testing.”
Alan Long, CEO of Creatio added:
“This partnership was very natural in the way it came about over the past few months, from initial discussions around integration for some new joint clients it quickly evolved. We immediately warmed to Vegard and the team at Cirrus. Their approach, customer focus, history, proactive developments and frequency and scale of their software updates, along with future plans were incredibly similar to us and helped us to quickly develop a rapport and trust.
“Once we saw their e-assessment platform we were truly blown away. It is a natural fit with creatiogreen. It makes sense for us to come together to pool our expertise and offering to help AOs and EPAOs as they grapple with the current impact on their delivery models and consider how they will transition to a new future and a new norm.
“The interest we have already received from existing clients to this new offering is incredible and I am confident that once others see the infrastructure, service and support we can provide – along with our ability and track record to continually evolve and improve – they will be as impressed and take the decision to upgrade their current arrangements to our joint Cirrus and Creatio offering. “We are truly excited by the potential this partnership provides and know together we will continue to make a real difference to AOs and EPAOs, their customers and learners as they navigate a radically different education landscape.”
