Visibility of all agency spend on one platform

Neutral Vendor / Multi-Agency platform

We have a simple to use, web-based, Neutral Vendor Platform called CentralAxis. CentralAxis automates the processes of multi-agency recruitment across permanent recruitment, temporary line cover and ad hoc or emergency shift cover.

Being web-based, CentralAxis can be used anywhere and at any time and accessed by smartphone, tablet or PC. Furthermore, there is no software to download or updates to manage.

Here’s the process for setting you up with our Neutral Vendor Platform:

  1. We work with you to establish a list of your preferred agencies, ensuring they can deliver to your requirements
  2. We develop Service Level Agreements for your agencies to sign, outlining the terms and standards of delivery
  3. We configure CentralAxis to your agreed rates of pay and charges
  4. We load your agencies, services or locations onto CentralAxis and on-board the ordering managers and timesheet approvers
  5. We provide on-line timesheets and invoicing, all of which is visible on the portals
