Check out the new version of our maintenance app for Android and Apple phones and tablets.
As you and the team walk around your facilities you can see-snap-send.
See: notice a fault and log a repair job
Snap: take a photo
Send: upload the details to the maintenance team
The maintenance team will have manager access and allocate the work to someone (internal or external if it requires specialist knowledge or equipment). Then you can see when it is repaired and also view and “AFTER” photo along side the “BEFORE” photo you had previously uploaded.
AXLR8 has been spending the last three years updating and improving the AXLR8 User Experience (UX). Many parts of the system are now being systematically added and seamlessly replacing exisiting client systems.
Field staffing apps have been evolving for a while and are now customised to your company and also have all the functionality you would expect from AXLR8’s comprehensive staffing agency systems.
The staffing systems internal HQ Admin wokflows are being improved, functon by function, starting with the recruitment team using AXLR8 applicant tracking systems.
AXLR8 Dashboards are built internally at clients with knowledgeable accredited AXLR8 Super Users now. They can be built and placed any where in the system but the most popular place is the opening page with a management overview.
AXLR8 are growing in the commercial finance and loan management systems markets as a direct result of improving user interfaces.
AXLR8 is updating the Information Request Management and Information Asset Register systems in use across central and local government and NHS.
AXLR8 have been delivering Apps on all major operating environments for seeral years for our clients to replace and complement our web apps and web portals.
The above maintenance app is a simple “see snap send” reporting mechanism as well as containing all the information requied for service, installation and other equipment management tasks for an engineer.
The comprehensive AXLR8 Staffing App is simpl for the staff member to use for shift information, work planning availability calendar, pay, expenses, field reporting and surveys (on and off line) updating personal details, Chat mechanism, proof of attendance and so much more.

Text messaging is ever more used by companies to remind or alert people and organise activities quickly. It is more effective and faster than email.
The reason for this price reduction is the multi-million volumes now purchased by the AXLR8’s “buying club” of clients. Also, to a lesser extent, we reduced administration with small price rises for buyers of lower volumes that cause proportionately more admin. Prices now start at under 2p/unit for our very high volume clients. Very low volume clients buying 1000 occasionally for example pay more than four times that cost per unit but have a low entry point, a low MoQ (1000 for £85 plus VAT to cover admin) and “pay as you go” preference.
Most commonly, staffing agencies or businesses that need to alert clients or others to events, buy 10k units as “stock” for their AXLR8 Text Tank. The price for 10k texts if you are a buying club subscriber is £294 plus VAT from 1st December 2019 (instead of £323 plus VAT till end November 2019). Partly this is achieved by reducing admin costs. The minimum order quantity (MOQ) is 10k for these prices. This has a couple of implications. First, you are less likely to run out and secondly, we suggest you change your low units alert levels to 3000 and 1000 minimum reminder level so you have enough time to order a top up. You can log in to https://sms.axlr8.com to change these parameters and see the level of texts in your tank as well as many other facilities.
Hopefully , you will join other clients who are using AXLR8 apps for iPhones and Android devices so that AXLR8 Chat to reduce messaging conversation costs further.

We recently launched a new set of functions for building dashboards.
The functionality is being provided to beta clients and some new clients now. It will soon become widespread.
AXLR8 Dashboards will address two key UI issues we have been working through in the last four years.
The CEO and Cx suite (board, VPs, etc.) will want different dashbards to the functional dashboards we have as standard in the project. A staff booker will log in to an overview of campaigns and a sales person may log in to their active deals. Howver, a CEO or COO may need a couple of graphs and two buttons to take them to some areas of P&L detail or other KPIs for the business such as client feedback scores. Previously, we have built these as custom developments and they have been expensive and mostly only applicable to one specific customer. Now AXLR8 can quickly model and deploy different dashboards for different directors/executive officers.
These are the dashboards that would be used by specific staff and managers to achieve their job objectives on a daily basis. For example a warehouse manager may need to know tools availability and testing schedules for the purposes of kitting out vans during each week with safe, servicable tools. A talent manager may wish to see how many applicants came in over night and how the talent pool stands including whose SIA licence paperwork or work visas are coming up for renewal.
We will follow up with an article with some Use Cases in different industries.
AXLR8 now have a fully developed interface using the leading Almas Industries systems and devices for biometric attendance and access control. Not only does it record attendance but also proves identity.
It allows you to use physical Almas Industries fingerprint and other biometric devices to check that the correct staff have arrived for their shifts on time and can record check in time, check out time, break time and other times such as tour locations and breaks. It also controls access into restricted areas.
Who does it help?
The systems are being deployed to check staff in and out and to record security and other tour paths in:
large secure residences and estates
and other large sites where staff attendance needs to be recorded. The physical Almas Industries hardware is installed at critical places on site This could be for, e.g. a fingerprint or facial recognition scan.

It is important to perform proof of identity for access control and T&A on site where your requirements include:
Only qualified staff
Only vetted staff
Only the staff who have understood the brief or done the induction training for that site
Only specific people may enter certain restricted rooms and areas
This is popular with staffing agencies and full time employed staff in:
and many other areas.
How does this compare with the AXLR8 Proof of Location smartphone app?
Where you have staff attending sites just once or on an occasional basis – e.g. field marketing or once-off experiential or other services, naturally, you will still require the AXLR8 Proof of Location system using the staff’s BYOD smartphone and or web apps. This is based upon a selfie on site and the satellite geo data proving that:
the specific employee you booked and trained for that job
was actually there at or before the shift time and, if necessary
standing in a prescribed uniform
with (e.g.) their demonstration kit set up.
As they may be in any town, at another site on any day, you cannot install hardware for a fingerprint or RFID scan. Many of our clients have staff rotas at locations where they cannot or may not install or use T&M hardware for other reasons.
So the AXLR8 BYOD PoL solution for dynamic staffing locations is complementary to the Biometric T&M solution for permanent work places.
AXLR8 has been providing the tools for clients’ mobile workers to collect data using an online tablet or smart phone for around ten years. The first ones ran on devices like the the Blackberry.
health and safety audits
field marketing store visit reports
staff vetting workshops
local authority social sureys
AXLR8 Clients collect tens of thousands of data items around the world, every minute, using this technology.
Surveys with no internet
However, customers still find that there are some places they must go where it is impossible or inconvenient to acquire an internet connection. Places with unreliable or no internet connection include:
an agricultural setting
a basement or underground carpark
on board ship
a shop or building that blocks or shields 4G and 3G
no data allowance for the period using BYOD
a remote foreign location with no (secure) internet.
So a couple of years ago, AXLR8 created an app that allowed offline reporting.
You download the surveys/ report questions to your device before setting off at a point where you can use a WIFI connection. Then you open the questionnaire and fill in the responses as you move around: inspect the building or inteview the public or check merchandise levels – or whatever your field task is. Following that field survey, when you return to the internet connection, you can submit the saved survey and all the data and pictures/files/video are uploaded to the cloud.
From there, the usual functions are possible by you or by your trusty back office support staff: creating documents, presenting the data on AXLR8 designed client portals, extracting the data and writing analyses, etc.
