Criteria Acquires Australian-based Alcami Interactive

Criteria, a market-leading SaaS people analytics platform, has acquired Australian-based Alcami Interactive, an on-demand video interviewing platform.

A substantial increase in demand for advanced video interviewing has occurred since the beginning of 2020, and Criteria will offer its more than 4,000 customers Alcami’s video interviewing service through its platform.

Alcami also will offer Criteria’s portfolio of assessments to its APAC customers. Criteria plans to fully integrate the companies in 2022.

“It’s no secret that the rise of remote work has created an increased demand for video interviewing tools,” said Josh Millet, founder and CEO of Criteria. “Our own benchmark report identified a 159 percent increase in video interviewing after COVID-19 hit, and many of our customers have asked us for a video interviewing solution.

“After an extensive market review, we are confident that we’ve selected the best video interviewing solution in the market today. What we love about Alcami is that they built their technology with priorities that mirror ours: creating a user-friendly interface that caters to an outstanding candidate experience and building advanced functionality around diversity and inclusion,” Millet added.

Alcami has a unique technology that drives an outstanding customer and candidate user experience, advanced functionality around diversity and inclusion, and the ability to cater for pre-recorded and live structured video interviews.
