A SCOTTISH developer of teambuilding software has secured a trial with Royal Bank of Scotland, building on its successful test run with OTP Bank’s Budapest HQ earlier this year.

SymbaSync’s Project Team Builder is a tool for project managers to match employees to the most suitable roles. The software presents colleagues’ skillsets in an anonymous, non-sector-specific manner, allowing project managers to make informed, non-biased choices. The business was created by Joseph McElmeel in 2017 following his previous success building a 160-employee business and growing-up around his father’s recruitment company.

He realised as organisations grow, workers’ skill history is often lost or forgotten, leaving internal resources underutilised.

SymbaSync has also been part of the Royal Bank of Scotland’s Entrepreneur Accelerator, the UK’s largest free business accelerator network, which offers mentoring and bespoke coaching to entrepreneurs who want to grow their businesses.

McElmeel said: “Organisations are changing structures meaning new skillsets are required and unlocking that intellectual capital internally, relying on transferable skills, and removing any bias from age or gender will reduce the costs born with external hires or consultants to fill vacant roles on new or existing project teams. Project Team Builder is designed to remove bias and simplify the internal resourcing and deployment process.”
