PointGuard – Management of skills and certificates

Analyze and build a web application on which employees can manage their skills and certificates. Both the ones they already achieved as the ones they aspire, with the goal of helping the managers to provide necessary training.

Description of the assignment

  • Our ToThePoint colleagues are on a path of continuous self-improvement. This translates to a mind-set of continuous self-study but also the possibility to participate in external workshops, receive extra education but also the hosting of internal training sessions and possible attendance at important conferences and fairs.
  • We’d like to digitally map the skill-sets of our colleagues, and additionally follow up on their needs to participate in extra trainings and provide this where needed.
  • Using the application you’ll be building: we can follow up on the certificates, examinations and registrations thereof.
  • Interest in- and participation of certain job fairs and conferences should also be followed up upon digitally.
