ProctorU and SmarterServices Partner to Offer Flexible Proctoring Solutions
Birmingham, AL – ProctorU, the world’s largest provider of online proctoring and identity management services, is partnering with SmarterServices, a full-spectrum assessment services company. The ProctorU integration with SmarterServices’ SmarterProctoring platform allows organizations to use a single interface for scheduling, administration and reporting of proctored exams regardless of how they are delivered.
“This integration between two powerhouses in the exam proctoring industry gives online faculty and exam administrators one of the most streamlined experiences available in today’s market,” said ProctorU founder Jarrod Morgan.
