What We Have Accomplished So Far
The idea for this company was created in May 2018; in a short period of time we have accomplished a lot. The founders of the company have worked in the proctored testing field for many years; by running/working at testing centers for 8 years we were able to see the direction proctored testing is going as well as establish the required contacts. The connections made through the years have aided in expediting the process and allowed us to get in contact with big players.
So far we have designed a final version of the headset. We have gone through multiple iterations and currently have working prototypes. We have applied for a patent and the device is patent pending. The founders of the company currently own the patent and plan to transfer it over to Proctor360 Inc. We have tested our device with the software platform and show that they work together. We are in pre-production but expect to be ready soon.
We have talked to various companies and colleges who work in the testing field and do online testing. They see the value in our service and are interested in utilizing it once we have grown and scaled.
Our executive board and advisory board have been established, it includes people extremely experienced in testing and business.
Currently, we are in the negotiation process with ProV to license the headset for their testing needs.
The next step for Proctor360 is to scale up and hire people who can assist in growing our business.
