BVSC selects InfoBasis skills management system

The Birmingham Voluntary Sector Centre (BVSC) is to use technology from InfoBasis to help it assess the skills of IT professionals in the not-for-profit sector within the Midlands.

Under the auspices of Midlands Open Source Technology (MOST), a government-funded initiative that aims to improve the IT infrastructure of the voluntary sector, BVSC will be using InfoBasis Enterprise Skills Management to conduct skills gap analyses among delegates of its ICT management courses.

The courses are aimed at those responsible for IT within voluntary and community organisations (VCOs), and the BVSC says it will use the analyses to help attendees identify areas for training and map their career paths.

Richard Coubry, ICT training specialist at MOST, said: "The voluntary sector is often criticised for having a piecemeal approach to people, processes and technology. We aim to change that by making sure that voluntary sector IT can compete with the private and public sectors. By using InfoBasis technology, we can give VCOs the visibility of staff and skills to allow them to make the strategic decisions to achieve this."

"Assessing staff skills is a critical component in order for any organisation to achieve success, irrespective of the sector," said Ashley Wheaton, InfoBasis CEO. "With the often limited resources available to the voluntary sector, it's important these organisations are equipped with the tools to ensure staff achieve their full potential."
