“When hiring Business Analysts, I had to assess the applicants on their logical reasoning & aptitude. However, assessing a large pool of candidates & acquiring unbiased results without any human hustle is difficult without an automated solution. With iMocha, I was able to filter more than 500 candidates within a short span of time.”
