Cincom® VisualWorks® helps AG5’s development team be very productive in an ever-changing environment.
With offices in Amsterdam and Berlin, AG5 has been developing software for managing professional skills for 13 years and have been working with data in the cloud since 2005, including for Defense. Because AG5 places great importance on the safety of the data of their customers, they are ISO 27001 certified, meeting the highest standard for information security.
AG5 helps safety and rescue-related organizations (e.g., fire fighters and ambulance personnel), as well as several Dutch Ministries and large international corporations with their own fire departments (e.g. Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Energy and Food industry) to understand and support the experiences, roles and skills of their work forces.
The solution covers daily scheduling of all personnel and their financial compensation, as well as administrative processes of education, training and deployment for both individual experts and multi-disciplinary teams. It is unique because of its ability to share organizational data and support inter-organizational processes; this being particularly important for ensuring an adequate response to major incidents.
Cincom VisualWorks helps AG5’s development team to be very productive in an ever-changing environment. AG5 is constantly gaining a clear competitive advantage over other vendors as they can instantly adopt any new training methodology, increased legislation requirements or changed organizational structures and thus be able to quickly respond to new demand.
We use Smalltalk because its design principles are outstanding.
