The information generated by SkillScan Express is presented in an attractive, tight, readable, logically flowing and meaningful way. I feel it's easy for both the counselor and client to grasp the results and apply the information. The results can be seen in almost one glance and can easily refer back to other parts of the report. I believe for the digital generation, SkillScan Express may be more to their liking.
