Our story


 

This is how we started

The original inspiration for AG5 was a newspaper article about Dutch firefighters. The article detailed the frustrations of many local fire departments. Many of these fire departments were overwhelmed by the time consuming processes and paperwork. Keeping track of which firefighters needed training certificates and diplomas was very time consuming.

Three friends active in software development knew they could do better. Realizing that many of the fire department tasks could be automated, they created AG5 Skills in 2005. Today, AG5 Skills is being used by more than 10,000 users in firefighting, pharmaceuticals and heavy industry.
