In the era of digital transformation, the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) has become as a must in order to achieve more people with affordable prices. Hence, in the delivery of psychological testing, the psychologists, counselors, and other experts become more and more integrated into the use of the ICT. Such integration would not only help to achieve more people, particularly those who are under privilege, but would also improve the quality, flexibility, and the rapidness of the services.

However, the accessing more people and preparing the reports for those people are expensive and need more time.
