The NCPC’s Protool is the first of its kind in the region

The National Competitiveness and Productivity Council (NCPC) is forging ahead with the online version of its productivity measuring tool called the ‘Protool.’  

The Protool developed by the National Competitiveness and Productivity Council (NCPC) is a dynamic productivity measuring tool which assesses productivity levels and provides feedback on weak identifiable areas within a firm.  Director of the NCPC, Fiona Hinkson indicated that via funding from Compete Caribbean Partnership Facility a product design and development company has been contracted to convert the Protool from its current Exel spread sheet platform to an online application.  

Company out of Trinidad and Tobago contracted to develop the online version of the protool while improving the customer experience and final output.  Ezim Abdool, is an External Director with FASOVE. 

From November 20th to 22nd consultations were held with a cross section of stakeholders both in the Private and Public Sectors soliciting their feedback on possible improvement to the updated version of the Protool.  

The NCPC is hopeful that the online version of the Protool will improve the productivity data gathering by making the tool more accessible to the private sector.
