As a multinational company servicing clients in over 20 languages, Computacenter’s top priority is finding high-quality, certified language speakers and communicators that can work in omnichannel roles. Before using Emmersion, Computacenter tried screening through interviews, written tests, and a third party service, but none of these solutions delivered the outcomes Computacenter needed to see.

Here’s where other solutions were falling short:

  • Language screening wasn’t accurate or objective enough to deliver reliable results because it was done through human-led interviews, exams, and phone calls.
  • Misplaced hires were creating escalations and issues for Computacenter, its clients, and their customers.
  • They had no way to prove a new hire’s true language ability and justify hiring decisions when language-related issues arose.


Language fluency is a top priority skill for Computacenter and its clients. The right level of language skill is something that hires either have or they don’t, and can’t be learned on the job in a few weeks or months. To avoid turnover and poor service interactions with customers, Computacenter knew they needed to know definitively, and right away, whether or not their candidates had the right skills for the job.

Emmersion’s assessments were a perfect fit for Computacenter because:

  • They’re built with Artificial Intelligence to deliver accurate results every time, free of bias.
  • Emmersion’s tests take 30 minutes or less for writing skills and 15 minutes or less for speaking skills, much faster than traditional interviews or third-party evaluations.
  • All assessments can be taken on candidates’ own time, virtually eliminating screening time from Computacenter’s hiring process.
  • There’s no limit to the number of tests candidates can take at once, making all volume screening needs painless for Computacenter hiring teams.
