Reed in Partnership and Eintech partner to form testing powerhouse
The deal, which sees Reed in Partnership making a strategic investment in Eintech, brings together Eintech’s flexible, configurable assessment and e-learning technology with the scale, infrastructure and reputation of Reed’s Test Centre network.
This partnership establishes a new proposition for awarding organisations and large corporate and government clients for which Reed is known. The new proposition covers the spectrum of organisations’ assessment needs, from online testing with remote proctoring, to in-person Test Centres for high stakes examinations, to e-portfolio for evidence-based qualifications, and tailored e-learning for course delivery.
Rhodri Thomas, Managing Director of Reed in Partnership, joins his Reed colleague Louise Edwards in seats on the Eintech board to support future growth. He comments:
“We are delighted to be part of Eintech’s next stage of growth and development. The Eintech team have developed innovative and scalable solutions for the assessment market. Our partnership with Eintech enables Reed Assessment to provide test owners with flexible test delivery either through our Test Centres or via Eintech’s secure remote proctoring technology.”
James Carter, CEO of Eintech, adds:
“This partnership is a natural fit that brings benefits to all. Our remote learning and testing technology is already proven in over 180 countries, and thanks to the reach and dependability of Reed we can now deploy it at an even larger scale, in new testing environments and to a growing client base.”
Reed Assessment provides assessment solutions to certify people’s skills and expertise.
Reed Assessment delivers secure, compliant and inclusive testing over a Test Centre network of 135 centres nationwide, and delivers over two million tests annually for clients including UK Government.
The business is part of the Reed Group, which encompasses 11 companies all created with the purpose of “improving lives through work”. Founded in 1960 by Sir Alec Reed, the group of companies remains a UK family business today, with annual revenues in excess of £1billion.
