Pearson TalentLens, a leading assessment solution provider, has launched the Versant English Test for India (VETI).

VETI is the India version of VersantTests which is already the country's most widely used test of spoken and written English.

Designed for businesses that cater to Indian customers, the VETI has been developed exclusively with Indian test takers in mind and to fulfil the need to achieve accurate results from automated testing of spoken English.

The VETI is set to change the way industries such as retail, hospitality, BFSI and IT recruit and train employees for English language proficiency and communication skills.

Eric Lane,Sr. Manager, Pearson Knowledge Technologies, Menlo Park, California, stated, "We noticed that a huge segment of domestic Indian business required to standardize the proficiency in spoken English to effectively run operations across the country and to ensure that the staff have adequate communication skills to succeed at their jobs."
