The cloud-based, data-driven, standardised assessment test, evaluates over 200 skills, spanning language, cognitive and functional competencies, personality traits and situation handling.

Aspiring Minds has partnered with Ringier to launch AMCAT in Sub-Saharan Africa. With its twelve platforms on the continent, Ringier will provide wide reach through its different channels.

AMCAT is a cloud-based, data-driven, standardised assessment test, which evaluates over 200 skills, spanning language, cognitive and functional competencies, personality traits and situation handling.

Himanshu Aggarwal, co-founder and CEO, Aspiring Minds, says, “Often times, recruitment can’t be based on diplomas or grades, because degrees are in plenty and lack quality assurance. Also, with today’s changing corporate requirements, the relevance of a degree itself is in question. In addition, many candidates might apply for a position that they are not really qualified for, making it hard for HR departments to identify suitable candidates from amongst all the applications.”

Julian Artopé, director, Ringier Africa, says, “AMCAT offers a perfect solution for the recruitment problem in Africa. The platform fits perfectly well with ZoomTanzania’s massive reach. Recruiters finally get a great assessment tool, immediately showing them the best candidates for a position. Job seekers get a chance to differentiate themselves from other candidates and stand out of the crowd. This partnership establishes ZoomTanzania as the number one recruiting tool in Tanzania.”

With this new platform, Ringier follows its strategy of a market-leading portfolio all over Africa. The company first set foot in Tanzania a year ago, with the majority stake at Tanzania’s largest classifieds platform, ZoomTanzania.com.
