OutMatch acquired the assessment company FurstPerson, which specializes in pre-hire simulations. The company said FurstPerson’s simulation tools complement its video interviewing capabilities, as well as OutMatch’s broader assessments, which measure communication skills, motivation and other traits.

In addition, OutMatch said a new talent-decision management platform uses technology such as FurstPerson’s to provide end-to-end hiring solutions. The platform ties candidate screening, assessments, video interviewing and artificial intelligence into a single integrated experience, which the company said will drive speed, efficiency and engagement while removing bias.

The company also launched a gamified culture assessment for OutMatch Assess. After candidates complete two brief assessments, clients can determine how each individual aligns with both their current and ideal organization culture.  

OutMatch CEO Greg Moran said integrating technologies such as FurstPerson’s will help the company “meet customers where the market is heading—toward an automated, candidate-driven experience.”

In January, OutMatch introduced enhancements to tailor its experience to users’ local language and cultural needs.

Those changes included:

  • Automatic detection of local languages including English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, simplified Chinese and Italian.
  • A WCAG-compliant experience with high-contrast mode and screen-reader optimization.
  • Regional cultural norms for Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific.
