What Our Clients Say

“BTL is very responsive to inquiries and always willing to discuss alternatives and possible solutions to ensure each Client is provided the necessary features to drive a satisfactory Candidate experience. ”

Prometric

“When we saw Surpass we were really excited about it! It was a fully web-based solution. It didn’t require that users install anything on their machines, so that made it much easier to use and all the features were designed to be intuitive. Without any formal training, an item author could go in and start using Surpass to create items. That was really a key reason why we selected BTL. ”

The National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME)

“BTL are flexible and sensitive to end user needs; they have developed a unique assessment tool in the Advanced Question Type, combining the functionality of word-processing and computational aspects of spread sheeting. BTL works hard to meet the customer's suggested improvements and changes and can be relied upon to work with both customer and end-user feedback to improve the product.”

The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW)

“Our external members benefit by having a tool that gives them the ability to see the item online, to be able to get real-time updates on how that item is progressing through the life cycle, along with being able to see how the item would be rendered and seen by the examinee when they would take that particular exam. So, it’s extremely important for them to be able to see how that item that they are creating would be seen. ”

The National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME)

“The system itself looks good and is intuitive to use, especially in comparison to other systems I have seen.”

The Royal College of Pediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH)

“Always available by call or email and genuinely provide quick support which was particularly helpful when I first moved into my current role.”

SkillsFirst

“We collaborate on many levels, whether that be them providing us with information to help train our users, or adding new features to Surpass to support the unique requirements of new clients that want to work NBME. That collaboration is ongoing and we’re constantly feeding more information back to BTL, so they can improve our products to better meet our current and future client needs.”

The National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME)

“Offers a coherent one-stop-shop provision for assessment purposes allowing for a manageable interface for both center needs and system users. ”

Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA)

“Good product - the best on the market, innovative - willing and able to try new things and push the envelope of what the product can do, customer focussed developments - responsive to customer needs.”

Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA)

“The APIs are vital for us to be able to integrate with our downstream legacy systems. It provides a high-level of security, it reduces the manual work needed to get information in and out of the systems, and we wouldn’t be able to do all of our processes and administer an exam without having an API integration with our systems. ”
