I want to let you know how much I appreciated the assistance of Howie Pearsol (CritiCall Client Relations Manager). I just installed CritiCall 5.2 late this afternoon and we had an issue with our computers.We need to use the software starting at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow!
I left Howie an urgent email at 4:53 this afternoon and he called me from his home…I have never experienced this type of customer service before and it is amazing!
It’s so easy to complain but most of us never recognize those who go beyond their “normal” routine. I hope you will let Howie know how much his willingness to help us after-hours really means to me. He definitely deserves the “atta boy” for service over and beyond tonight.

I have been involved with test writing and development in the public sector since 1992, and CritiCall is one of the best testing tools for public safety dispatching I have ever seen. Not only does it allow for customization to the individual organizational needs, it provides a built-in validation module which is extremely easy for subject matter experts and HR analysts to use and understand. Candidates frequently tell me they have never taken a test which is so closely relates to what they do on the job. After I demonstrated this product to another agency in our valley, they purchased it immediately!I’d recommend this product to any public sector organization that wants a valid and reliable tool for their public dispatching recruitment process.

We receive a lot of great feedback from employers who use our pre-employment testing software. It’s not everyday, though, that we hear from a job applicant about our pre-employment testing. Today we received this wonderful email from a dispatcher applicant who took the CritiCall exam. The e-mail address, agency, and name have been removed for confidentiality.

Subject: Thank you
To whom it may concern,
I just participated in a testing session with the ****** Police for a position as a Dispatcher. I have 6 1/2 years experience in this field. I have been actively looking for a new job in this same field. In the process, I have taken numerous different tests. For the first time I tested with the Criticall software system. I have never been impressed with testing….until yesterday! I believe that you have hit the nail on the head with this testing system. It covered ALL of the areas that are necessary for a successful Dispatcher. I was thrilled to see a spelling section (one of my pet peeves). Thank you for providing a program that should be used by ALL agencies in their hiring process for Dispatchers.
I normally don’t take the time to write to a company, but felt this time it was warranted. My husband told me I should be a representative for your company since I came home so excited about the program. I wish you success and hope to see this type of testing at the remainder of the positions I apply for.
Thank you, HP! We truly appreciate your taking time to share your feedback with us.
We wish you all the best in your career!
