VirtualAC™ simulates an online desktop environment, enabling you to deliver highly immersive and interactive business simulation exercises to select and develop your staff. Using VirtualAC, candidates will be asked to respond to information and issues presented in a variety of formats, such as emails, video messages, voicemails, calendar items, documents and organisation charts. Using the simulated online desktop, participants can be asked to respond to emails, write documents or reports and schedule meetings in their calendar.
Why use VirtualAC?
Saving you time and money – You can administer and mark exercises quickly and easily online using our streamlined marking system, which incorporates our SmartScoring formula which can cut assessor marking time by a third compared to paper-based marking.
Convenient and flexible – We have a range of exercises that don’t require roleplayers, meaning the assessments can take place at the candidate’s convenience and in any location where an internet connection is available, giving you a fast process with global consistency. Candidates and assessors can be in different locations or even a different country, saving on travel costs.
Helping you make high quality decisions – Virtual simulations present realistic working challenges and require the participants to demonstrate key behaviours important for success in the job. They let you see the participant in action and provide powerful evidence of an individual’s capabilities, ensuring you identify the right people.
Giving you choice – You can deliver a range of business simulations through our highly flexible platform. Ask the participant to complete an inbox exercise, an analysis report or a full virtual Assessment Centre that incorporates several different activities.
Host your own exercises – The platform has been built as a Software as a Service (SaaS) application, so if you have your own exercises, these can be uploaded onto VirtualAC.
Promoting your employer brand – Virtual simulations provide an engaging and immersive assessment experience for the participant as well as a realistic job preview, presenting a positive image of your employer brand.
We have a wide choice of ready-to-use exercises covering a range of levels and competencies, including analysis, day in the life and inbox exercises. VirtualAC is a completely flexible Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, so alternatively we can work with you to develop and upload a customised or completely bespoke exercise tailored to your needs. Or if you have your own exercises, VirtualAC can host those too!
Virtual day-in-the-life exercises
Virtual day-in-the-life exercises enable a comprehensive assessment of a candidate across multiple exercises and competencies, including inbox exercises, an analysis exercises and roleplay.

Using PSI’s VirtualAC™, we were able to put each candidate through an immersive and intense day-long behavioural simulation to aid their ongoing development planning.”
