Business Challenges

The requirement for Security and Steward staffing, whether as static guards or event stewards, is an ever increasing industry across the world. The need to provide clients with professional, high calibre, flexible staff is essential to stay ahead of the competition.

Processing CVs constantly coming through the door, screening the applicants, manually managing the staff credentials and qualifications was a lengthy process

The amount of time taken for the recruitment process needed to be decreased dramatically in order to maximise efficiency.

The Management of an event with large numbers of staff was a cumbersome task. Staff could be double booked if not careful and the communication for event briefing was a lengthy manual task.

Keeping track of the staff who had worked at each event, how many hours they had completed, who did not turn up and their pay rates could be challenging.

The need to automate this process and feed the correct information through to payroll was essential.


After reviewing the products available on the market, the management team took the decision to implement AXLR8.  The main reason for this was that it was a comprehensive system that was cost effective to the business. It is a low set-up cost with a monthly charge that is not dependent on the number of users.


The technology developed by AXLR8 is bespoke to the Experiential, Field Sales and Event staffing industry. The implementation of this has meant the event management, recruitment and feed to payroll has been streamlined to increase efficiency without the requirement for additional staff.
