About us

Our mission is simple: Visualizing and closing your skills gaps

But how? By clearly mapping your team’s current skills, tracking progress toward learning new skills, and identifying the missing skills you still need to get your organization ready for the future and stay compliant.

How it all began

The Dutch fire brigade discovered a company that had started developing the skills management software it so desperately needed. And this is how our company, AG5, won its first-ever client.

But it wasn’t only the fire brigade that was struggling with skills management. To our astonishment, we soon discovered that many manufacturing companies, too, were still using Excel spreadsheets to manage their skills matrices. And not particularly successfully …

Operations and HR managers throughout the industry were struggling to keep control. In fact, they’d already lost control to overly complex and error-prone spreadsheets that were hampering more than they were helping. We knew we could help them escape the ‘cells’ they’d built for themselves in Excel.

Early adopters, Johma Salades and Jacobs Douwe Egberts, wanted to break free and eagerly participated in a series of AG5’s pilot tests. A year of continuous development later and together we’d co-created a simple user interface that met not only their needs but also those of any company looking to get to grips with its skills management and close its skills gaps.

The rest – as they say – is history!
