Adaface helps you identify the top candidates for all your tech roles and save crucial engineering time by screening candidates with 750+ custom assessments for on-the-job skills (all programming languages, frameworks, aptitude). Top candidates prefer Adaface because our bot, Ada has a friendly chat involving relevant code challenges with them as opposed to asking trick questions on a test.

IKM provides knowledge measurement solutions and services including assessments, certifications, software applications and consulting services.

USP of Adaface: Custom assessments for each role

Every job description is different and requires a personalized test to identify top candidates efficiently. Adaface subject matter experts understand your job description and create a technical assessment from our questions library of 5000+ questions to help you shortlist the most qualified candidates for any particular role. IKM does not offer this feature.

IKM provides assessments for all industries, including IT, Sales, Project Management, Computer Literacy, MS Office, Clerical, Legal, Accounting, Retail Sales, Call Center etc. They offer over 1000 off-the-shelf assessments solutions for both pre and post hire.

Why some of our recent customers have moved from IKM to Adaface:

We noticed that some candidates who we expected would be really good engineers were failing IKM's assessments, and we got negative feedback from our clients about some of the candidates who had done really well on IKM's assessments. We feel that we cannot rely on the scores on the assessments to decide which candidate profiles to share with our clients. So we're exploring other solutions in the market, and the results we are seeing with Adaface's pilot seem promising.
- Recruitment Manager (IT) @ Fortune 500 staffing company (Singapore office)

We feel that IKM's assessments are not reflective of the day to day work of a developer. It is good to check their knowledge of theoretical concepts, but we want to see more synergy between the test and what they are going to be doing day-to-day.
