Progression monitoring from SkillsForge….

SkillsForge is the product of over 20 years research and development at the University of York.  The solution had its origins in researching competence development and performance management.  SkillsForge was created out of this research in order to commercialise the learning.  During the commercialisation process SkillsForge was developed as a skills assessment and development solution within the context of Postgraduate researcher progression monitoring.

Over the past 14 years the SkillsForge software as a service solution has developed into a comprehensive tool for universities and other organisations.  The solution is highly configurable from a workflow, form template, notifications, look and feel (branding) and reporting perspective .  SkillsForge integrates easily with existing organisational systems such as student records systems, human resources systems and research management systems.

The solution encapsulates progression monitoring, supervision, course booking, training needs analysis, performance management and management reporting.  Given the commonality of requirements with a traditional student records system SkillsForge can be utilised as a university’s student records system.  Based on modern technologies this provides a considerable advantage versus the older technologies the traditional records systems are based on.

SkillsForge is hosted at the University of York, supports various authentication/security strategies and is upgraded regularly based on feedback from our client base.

The adoption of SkillsForge provides significant benefits for our clients.  These include cost savings and improved outcomes from improved business processes.  We have listed some of these successes on our testimonials page.
