Merreo is a pre-hiring assessment platform currently developed in partnership with the Nikitha web Development Company - it is an ongoing project that has been in the works for over 12 months. Merreo is a proper SAAS platform with multiple-level stakeholders having access and several complex features to deliver a strong and unique value proposition. In this article, we will discuss our process & technology for developing a SAAS platform like Merreo.
What is Merreo?
Merreo is a pre-hiring test platform where employers and HR Agencies can create and deploy Role-Specific & Multi-Measure Assessments for assessing potential job candidates - targeted for the untapped and underserved market of Small to Medium scale start-ups. Ultimately wanting to make better and more objective hiring practices accessible for all companies.
Inside the product, a recruiter can create different assessments for the different roles that he/she will be hiring for. And for each assessment, one can add up to 5 tests from our skill test library- hence the term “multi-measure assessments.” As of now, Merreo has over 45 expert-developed pre-employment tests that include cognitive tests, hard skill tests, language tests, coding language tests, and personality tests. Our test repertoire includes Critical Thinking, Spatial Visualization, Math thinking, MATLAB, C Programming, HTML, PHP, Solidworks, FIGMA, Finance, Marketing, & much more. In addition to that, the recruiter can create his/her own questions to be appended to the assessment.
Merreo also does not have a subscription plan - which is currently the norm for the industry, but also a big turn-off for the target market. So, we work with a Pay as you Go model. Companies/HR Agencies can purchase assessment credits for as low as 60 Rs/credit, with one credit getting consumed only if a candidate takes all the sections of the assessment.
How Merreo works?
Step 1 - Create an account
Step 2 - Start creating the assessment by naming the assessment and choosing the relevant streams and details.
Step 3 - Add tests. You can choose up to 5 tests per assessment. You can accept our role-specific pre-set assessment or you can configure it for your needs.
Step 4 - Add custom questions. Create a bespoke experience for your candidates by adding your questions.
That’s it. An assessment is now created and you can send the Assessment link to the candidates.
As soon as candidates start taking the tests, results start popping up in your dashboard, which you can use to make more informed decisions about candidates.
The Product Development Process
Merreo is one of the most complex projects we ever worked on. Merreo is supposed to be a bootstrapped, low-budget product that should be comparable with the VC-funded mammoths in terms of features and usability. So the process becomes ever important.
Despite the product being fully functional now, we will always view the product as a work in progress. We are constantly working on adding new features and systems and ultimately adding value to the customers.
Design - FIGMA, Adobe Xd, FIGJAM
Front End Development - React & Bootstrap
Backend Development - Laravel PHP
Database - MySQL
Merreo has a constantly growing pre-employment test library. At the moment, the platform has 45 tests. Some of them are listed below.
Merreo is a grueling but ultimately rewarding project. The Nikitha team has been working on this product for months and to see that the customers and the candidates are enjoying the product is a phenomenal achievement for the team. Merreo is also one of the most complex SAAS platforms we developed. And with that, not only did we increase our technology and design capability, but we also achieved a good sense of pride and achievement.
