Abstract: The MapComp Platform was designed to centralize employees’ knowledge and to obtain an up-to-date status of their skills, abilities and certifications. This application is an extensive tool for examining and monitoring competences, which contributes to the efficient allocation of employees to ongoing projects within the Institute, taking into account their abilities. In the case of organisations where the activity is carried out on several projects, employees can be distributed and allocated according to their knowledge and to the needs of the ongoing projects. Competences are entered into the application by the user and are divided into several categories. For each employee, documents attesting the knowledge acquisition can be attached, in order to verify that the information provided is real. The platform offers a transparent way to quickly evaluate the employees’ status and to identify, with few clicks, the suitable candidates for various ongoing projects within the Institute. Moreover, MapComp contributes to the employees’ development, in accordance with the needs of the Institute, as well as to the identification of talents.

Keywords: Web development, Python, Django, competency mapping, natural language processing.
