AG5, an Amsterdam, Netherlands-based SaaS platform used to map and track employees' skills and qualifications, raised €6 million in a funding round from Headline, Acadian Ventures, and Peak.
The new funds will be used to expand the platform's international reach, starting with Germany, Europe's manufacturing powerhouse.
AG5’s SaaS solution offers the first interface organizations can use to map and track employees' skills that are directly linked to production lines. It delivers scalable capacity planning and insights for audits and training programs to industries that still rely on Excel or pen and paper.
Its plug-and-play software solution simplifies skills management with intuitive, appealing, and sharable skill matrices.
AG5's platform targets factories with 200 to 40,000+ employees, is available in 14 languages, and offers technical integrations with HRM and e-learning platforms, planning systems, and training management systems, including SAP (as a certified partner), Moodle, and Cornerstone.
