TesTrac.com Launches Version 11
Burnsville, Minn. – TesTrac.com, Ltd, a world leader in online testing, announces a major software revision that expands its already robust network capabilities even further. The new software, Version 11, is part of a large-scale capital investment that enhances TesTrac.com's test delivery system. The nearly half-million-dollar project cements TesTrac.com's position as a leader in online testing.
“The software upgrade is part of
a larger network investment,” said TesTrac.com president Doug Odell. “With
all of the new hardware we acquired, we wanted to improve our software to
make the user experience even better.” One of the most noticeable changes
is a new user interface with an exceptionally clean dashboard, which shows
test-takers just what they need to see, when they need to see it.
Another improvement can be seen in response time and load balancing. “In the past,” said Odell, “everything was based on the IP address. So if 1,000 users from one testing center all logged on at once, they'd all hit one server at the same time. With our new hardware and software, that load is balanced across the entire network.” This means that TesTrac.com is able to deploy a fast, consistent service regardless of the number of concurrent connections. “This will improve the percentage of completed test attempts,” said Odell, “Right now we have a 99%-plus completion rate; our new engine will go even higher.”
Overall, the changes add up to a
tremendous user experience. “I believe we're the only testing company in
the world that has this technology,” said Odell. These benefits let
TesTrac.com's customers leverage the highly scalable architecture of the
new network while providing their test-takers with a user experience that
includes a simpler interface, easy site navigation, and an extremely high
rate of completed tests. “We're making testing fast, easy and reliable,”
