Business Overview

Vexus is exclusively retained to find a buyer for this workforce skills assessment business. Our client has developed a unique software-based system to provide online staff assessment and analysis for strategic, customer facing executives.  For over 10 years our client has provided a solution that supports the hiring and assessment of corporate workforce skills.

Highlighting these key areas and skills helps the business drive performance, optimise customer interaction and ultimately increase revenue.

Our client’s solution is ‘sector agnostic’ and can be implemented into most businesses with a large workforce. The business has a long standing and loyal base of international blue-chip clients and has recently launched a product suitable for smaller businesses.
