Features

The Ecordia system is much more than just e-assessment and e-portfolio. Although this is our speciality and the nucleus of Ecordia, the system has developed many extra facets that help training centres streamline and manage more of their processes through a single, comprehensive application.

The system can be used by any type of organisation and can be customised to individual requirements.
