INPO Moves to Testcraft, Engages Provaré Technology for Testing and Data Validation


Alpharetta, GA, April 11, 2012 – Provaré Technology is pleased to announce that the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) National Academy for Nuclear Training eLearning (NANTeL) division has engaged Provaré to perform all of the testing and data validation associated with its transition to the Ingenious Group’s Testcraft for online exam administration and scoring. The testing to be done will include complete test project planning and management, validation of Testcraft against existing INPO processes (both automated and manual), complete acceptance testing, verification of integration with the newly deployed Saba Learning Management System (LMS), complete validation of the migration of data from Vision to Testcraft, and capacity and performance testing.

“Provaré was so critical to our successful Transition to the Saba LMS and did such a great job,” says Bob Coovert of INPO, “that I can’t imagine undertaking this transition to Testcraft without knowing that I have Provaré paying attention to the quality. One thing that we have learned at INPO is that Provaré doesn’t miss much. If they’re doing the testing, I know that the deployment will be much smoother.”

“We’re very grateful and humbled by the faith that INPO places in us,” says Bill Tepper, CEO of Provaré Technology. “Knowing that they place that level of trust in us really inspires us to do our best work. We never want to let a customer like INPO down.”


The actual transition to TestCraft will be a relatively long project, with a target go-live date of June 15, 2013, over a year from the start of the project. “There is a ton to do. I’ve got my work cut out for me, no doubt about it,” says Warren Prince, INPO project manager for the Testcraft migration project. “There will be a lot of moving parts. I have never personally worked with any of the Provaré folks before, but everyone here at NANTeL talks about them as if they hung the moon, so I’m definitely looking forward to getting to know them myself. And I can’t tell you how nice it is to know that a team as reliable as Provaré will have my back.”
