A company headquartered in Riverchase is partnering with Google in a venture to provide testing and certification for digital workers using cloud-based technology.
ProctorU, which recently celebrated its 10th year in business, rolled out its work on Monday with Google’s G Suite Certification.
Though the terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, the two companies have inked a multi-million dollar deal over several years. The collaboration also has the potential to spur more activity between big tech companies and home-grown ventures in Alabama, Jarrod Morgan, ProctorU’s founder and chief strategy officer, said.
“This was the culmination of a lot of hard work,” Morgan said. “We’ve built a stellar reputation in higher education, and that served us until we moved into professional testing for corporate clients. This is an Alabama company, with Alabama technology and Alabama venture backing. To have Google vet the whole market and then choose us validates that great things can happen in Alabama and in Birmingham. This is not the last story like this.”
