SkillView Technologies, Inc., an innovator of products that support Skills Management, announces a new strategic partnership with Question Mark Corporation, the leading provider of testing and assessment software since 1988. As part of the partnership, the two companies have created an integrated solution that combines the online testing abilities of Question Mark Perception™ with the employee skills assessment capabilities of SkillView Enterprise 3.0, an enterprise solution for skills management.

SkillView Enterprise 3.0 is an enterprise-class skills assessment and inventory application which serves as a powerful decision support system for all of an organization's skills-based corporate functions. SkillView Enterprise 3.0 features Skill Assessment and Gap Analysis, as well as powerful management reporting capabilities that provide strategic views of organizational competencies. SkillView's software includes a skills database that compares the skills of individual employees against an objective "standard" set of skills for their current (or future) job responsibilities.

Question Mark Perception is a widely used Web-based testing and assessment tool with complete multimedia capabilities. The software features security functions calculated to make testing in online environments safer than ever before. A comprehensive reporting system provides human resource executives with powerful information to improve their assessments, training, and opinion surveys.

SkillView CEO Marny Peabody says, "It's important for us to be able to offer state-of-the-art skills assessment and gap analysis tools to our customers. Together, SkillView and Question Mark are working to (develop) customer-designed tests to enable employees to record and track their competencies."

Says Eric Shepherd, president of Question Mark Corporation, "Establishing a link with SkillView enables both of our organizations, and our mutual customers, to yield even more benefits from the testing, assessment, and competency analysis process."

About SkillView Technologies
SkillView Technologies Inc., headquartered in Plaistow, NH, was founded in 1994 to provide products that support Skills Management. Skills Management is based on the identification of skill gaps, derived by cataloging an organization's strategic skills, modeling desired proficiency levels in those skills and comparing employees' actual proficiencies to desired levels. Until 1998, all products were based on a Client/Server architecture (implemented using various versions of PowerBuilder) and running on Local Area Networks (LANs) or Wide Area Networks (WANs).

In 1998, SkillView implemented SkillViewWeb, an Intranet application written in Java, which is installed on a client's Web Server and serves as a "front-end" to the same skills database built with and accessed through SkillView Enterprise.
