AXLR8 just completed our certification for Cyber Essentials! I can highly recommend the detailed, professional prompt and practical approach of RightCue who led us through the process. Thanks! #cybersecurity #datasecurity # #gdpr #CyberEssentials We are excited to announce the launch of our new project! #completedproject #compliance #IASMEconsortium
AXLR8 are migrating users to new interfaces to reduce training and make the system quicker and easier to use. Simple lists of proposals and clients have clicks through to more details if desired. Adding new propsals uses a step-by-step wizard approach that even the world’s greatest technophobe will embrace!
These announcements (and see here) are part of the product roadmap which started nearly 20 years ago and will continue with many interfaces to external lenders and other information sources.
Please call to discuss your team’s requirements.
Security is only going to get stronger in the world of business applications.
Therefore, some of your legitimate users will face occasional barriers to accessing your business applications including the one you have purchased from AXLR8.
Assuming they are legitimate users, the quick solutions you can try are as follows.
|Common user issue||What to do about it|
|Forgot password (includes typing the wrong case e.g. “ABCD1234” instead of “AbCd1234”)||They should go through the password reset process. It sends them a temporary login and instructions on how to create a new secure password.|
A Super User can also kick off this password reset process.
|Too many false login attempts||The users account will be disabled. A Super User needs to go to their User Admin area, select that user and take their account from the “disabled” to the “active” list. Don’t forget to check they are still legitimate users!|
|Not received password reset email||The email with the reset password instructions has probably gone into their spam folder.*|
The user must check their spam folder, retrieve the mail and follow the instructions.
|User forgot login name (includes typing it wrong such as “JOHN SMITH” when it is actually “JOHNSMITH” without a space)||They can use the user name reminder process.|
You can send them the correct user name and explain the importance of typing it exactly.
*If all go to spam, then your DKIM and SPF records a may not be set up correctly and you may need to ask assistance of whoever manages your DNS. AXLR8 can re-supply the correct values for these.
The above should solve it (and probably similar problems from any system you may use, from any supplier). If not, one of your company’s AXLR8 Super Users should follow the steps in the link below with your user (client, field staff, etc.) in order to resolve the matter.

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 have produced the following AXLR8 GDPR document for clients in the commercial sector – especially those who use direct mail with our Newsletter Builder and other tools in B2C markets.
It also referes to a new AXLR8 Data Cleaning document.
Those in staffing will find it useful as there are some pointers about adding the Opt Ins to your staff contracts. It seems reasonable to ask staff to read email in order to see what what work is coming up, confirming/ changing shifts and so on. More is available on our specialist staffing website at http://staffing.axlr8.com.
For example, we will be covering data retention periods and especially applicant data and data about terminated staff (with and without payment history.
AXLR8 are creating special new SAR 30/60/90 Information Request Types. More details are on the way to government users of our FOI systems.
This link is the official UK Information Commissioner’s Office website and the pages of content are
- the authoritative source and
- clearly explained.
The fines associated with General Data Protection Regulations which come in on 25th May 2018 are huge. None of us can afford 4% of turnover. The reputation damage to your business would be much higher.
Just like you, AXLR8 have beeen burning hard earned reserve cash preparing for GDPR on top of our Penetration Testing, Vulnerability Scanning and the resulting remediation action plans.
Many people are claiming to help you with GDPR if you pay them money. If, like of most of our clients, have more sense than money and some basic legal IT understanding, you should visit this ICO link. It is the official UK Information Commissioner’s Office website and the pages of content are authoritative and clearly explained. All you need to know is that you are the “Data Controller” and AXLR8 is your “Data Processor”. Obviously, if you have in house systems as well, you are both DC and DP for those systems.
If you have any queries about the matter, please do not hestitate to call and book a (free) call with one of our consultants. “A stitch in time…..”
Great project with the De Laga Landen developer support team last month.
AXLR8 now have a direct proposal introduction system in test and hope to have the first clients using it within a month. Fantastic development job by all concerned.
Great to work with such a forward-looking financial company.
AXLR8 have been busy preparing for May 2018 when General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will be the main Data Protection legislation, updating DPA.
The penalties will be very high indeed for companies who do not take their Data Controller role seriously. These fines will be in addition to any fines from professional bodies.
To help, we are launching the
- AXLR8 GDPR positioning paper and
- AXLR8 GDPR client starter kit with
- AXLR8 GDPR check lists,
- AXLR8 GDPR workshops and advice and guidance in September through December 2017.
