Dear HR or Operations Manager,

Once upon a time, your Excel matrices used to be so simple. But now you can’t see the wood for the trees with the piles of operations, certifications, workplace instructions and job requirement descriptions you’ve since accumulated!

Managers are breathing down your neck for reports and you’re breaking out in a sweat about the impending audits. Stressing about having the right info in the right place at the right time. Feeling the heat for the errors and delays accumulating in unwieldy Excel spreadsheets, while you actually need to be dealing with other matters.

We’ve got the solution! Using AG5, simply replace all the Excel spreadsheets floating around your organization with a single, centralized, cloud‑based repository containing all the information about your personnel’s skills. Then just authorize individual employees, teams or departments to determine what they can or cannot view and/or edit.

And the best news of all is that you can transfer all your Excel skills matrices to the only plug‑and‑play skills management system in less than 1 day.

See how it works
And discover twelve practical examples where skills management software can save you a whole stack of time!

Real results

We’ve finally got one version of each matrix

We’ve made a lot of progress, having migrated our unwieldy spreadsheets to AG5 where users can access our matrices quickly and easily.

What used to take an entire day only takes 1 minute now!

AG5 is clear and concise and saves us a huge amount of time. We get a complete picture with just a few clicks of the mouse or taps on a screen.

It saves me fifty or so discussions a year!

It was a pretty daunting task working out who among my fifty or so sales executives had which certification and who didn’t.

Six occasions on which you'd be better off with Skills Matrix Software

Verdrietige smiley

Your Excel whiz kid's leaving, and no one knows how he or she programmed their skills matrices. You have to start over!

Vrolijke smiley

A new AG5 skills management software user can be up and running in less than 30 minutes. He or she doesn't even have to touch Excel and certainly doesn't have to do any programming.

Verdrietige smiley

You can't retool your production line for a new component because the person who usually does this is off sick and you're not certain who else can do this.

Vrolijke smiley

Enter the name of the person who's off sick into AG5, hit 'Search' and instantly get a list of his or her most suitable replacements.

Verdrietige smiley

An auditor is running random checks on the work floor and two of the three employees don't seem to have the proper skills required.

Vrolijke smiley

Enter their three names into AG5, hit 'Search' and the auditor can see each employee's certifications, performance reviews and workplace instructions at a glance.

Verdrietige smiley

Stress! A component's faulty and you don't know which service engineer can fix this the fastest. Another day lost making phone calls!

Vrolijke smiley

Enter the faulty component into AG5, hit 'Search' and instantly get a list of all the service engineers qualified to fix it. Solved!

Verdrietige smiley

Yikes! Three staff members missed their mandatory refresher courses again. The Excel skills matrices simply don't alert me about any expiry dates.

Vrolijke smiley

Perfect! HR and employees automatically receive email reminders about refresher courses or certification renewals before they lapse (advance warning is self‑configurable).

Verdrietige smiley

A production line worker loses a finger in an accident. Health & Safety discovers he didn't have sufficient training and shuts down the production line.

Vrolijke smiley

This employee should never have been manning this piece of machinery in the first place and would probably still have his finger. Check AG5 and verify in a single glance that the whole production team is qualified.

If it’s secure enough for the Dutch Ministry of Defense, surely it’s secure enough for your organization?

We were the first‑ever company in the Netherlands to whom the Dutch Ministry of Defense entrusted its personnel’s data.

Only after a thorough and extensive investigation lasting six months, however.

But we understand that you’re not going to be able to convince your ICT manager and Privacy Officer based merely on this example. Which is why you’ll receive a Service Level Agreement (SLA) and Data Processing Agreement (GDPR DPA) with full details about the measures we take to protect your data.

We’re also ISO 27001 certified by Lloyd’s Register, which means they audit AG5 and its software every year.

Why the Dutch Fire Brigade turned to AG5
twelve years ago

Chainsaws, burning buildings, car wrecks, fire trucks, people drowning …

Firefighters have to be able to perform over 600 operations flawlessly before they can ever go out on their first call.

The Dutch fire brigade turned to AG5 twelve years ago and in doing so became our first customer. At the time, each fire department was recording details of its personnel’s skills in Excel. We discovered a total hotchpotch of spreadsheets.

Unraveling this knot was the start of AG5.
