Background on Reference Point and CourseSight


About Reference Point Ltd

Founded over 20 years ago, Reference Point delivers a range of powerful, user-friendly technology solutions that help manage workforces, ensuring that people are trained, qualified and can work safely and effectively together.


SkillGuard is the company’s market-leading mobile workforce management system, utilising smartcard technology and sophisticated mobile apps to provide critical, portable, up-to-date information that can be checked wherever and whenever it’s needed, 24 hours a day, every day.  Designed for major organisations – as clients or principal contractors - SkillGuard is internationally recognised as the gold standard solution for providing real-time authority to work whilst keeping workforces safe and effective at all times. It is widely used with particular market presence in safety-critical sectors including rail, roads, utilities, construction and transport.


For smaller companies, looking to manage their own data with the ability to issue and manage both virtual and/or physical smartcards, there is Gencarda – a simple, off the shelf, web-based solution.
