Scott Abbott, Talevation Managing Partner noted, “Because we now have such an expansive portfolio of talent assessments – and that traditional keyword search offers limited results – we anticipated that users may have difficulty landing on the perfect assessment(s) or know exactly which assessments to take. In response, we built a chatbot named TAPbot™, that utilizes IBM Watson Services to deliver a guided experience. For example, TAPbot might suggest taking the ‘data mining concepts’ assessment, when the user searches for ‘artificial intelligence’. Or for a specific skills assessment, TAPbot might also recommend certain behavioral assessments, to complement their skills. These related but different assessments might be ones our user did not originally consider. Such self-discovery and support, is at the heart of the TAP experience.”

In addition to IBM Kenexa Assess on Cloud™ and IBM Watson, TAP leverages other products and services from the IBM Cloud™, including: Alert Notification, API Connect, Assistant, Availability MonitoringCertificate Manager,CloudantCloud FoundryCloud FunctionsCloud Object Storage, Continuous Delivery, DiscoveryNatural Language Understanding.

Added Abbott, “TAP provides the most extensive and comprehensive portfolio of self-service talent assessments available in the market today. And with the recent addition of TAP U!, our Career Services Program for schools, students and recent or soon-to-be graduates – we are excited that TAP can help millions of people earn, develop and retain rewarding employment.”
