Petrofac SkillsVX is a highly flexible software based solution that provides a transparent overview of competence compliance within a business.
Clients can use the software to assure internal and external stakeholders that workforce capabilities comply with operational and regulatory requirements. SkillsVX can analyse the workforce of an individual business unit, a specific asset or the organisation as a whole.
The software tool has become part of our stable of services following our acquisition of the SkillsVX business. Prior to this, we had worked in partnership with the company for more than two years.
