Now that the first quarter of the new Professional Experience Tool that we developed with and for the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) has passed, it is time to reflect on a successful implementation.
The tool is used by 600,000 trainee accountants located across the world who capture evidence of their professional experience alongside the passing of examinations. Consequently our NOW.net platform was subject to rigorous testing in advance of the site being launched in February. It flew through these tests and once it became live it has maintained an enviable high performance in relation to up time and speeds. Only the great firewall of China caused us a temporary headache.
This makes it one of the largest scale projects anywhere in the world where the e-assessment of skills is carried out by one organisation fully online.
