We live in an age where we can go online and order a pizza or some laundry detergent to our door, and have it delivered within an hour whilst tracking its journey the whole way. Despite this, many production companies rely on phone calls which can be forgotten, or pieces of paper which can be lost (and aren’t very sustainable!).
SXS are committed to bringing the events industry into the 21st century, and a core part of this is our suite of software platforms that we have developed in-house. Read more about each one below:
XHire is our answer to Amazon for the equipment dry hire industry. It is an online portal where customers can create an account, check stock levels, book out equipment, sign hire agreements, and track their order history. It integrates seamlessly with our internal management software, allowing orders to be processed in real time and eliminating the need for individual quotations to be provided, or long winded account application forms to be filled out.

We developed XPo as an answer to our clients who were frustrated with being the middle man between their exhibitors and ourselves when booking equipment for their stands at exhibitions. By creating an online booking platform, the exhibitors can log in, select their event, and then choose from a list of pre-approved options for their stand, such as LCD screens, furniture, and lighting. They can also use the platform to upload artwork for printing, or view technical information regarding their stands. Payments are also handled online, and invoices can be made available to download. See a video about XPo below.
Our client needed a dynamic guest registration system that allowed information to be downloaded and analysed the day after their event with minimal effort. So we stepped in and designed exactly that, all accessed through an app for a tablet that could be used by guests to sign in for the event, or controlled by event staff greeting the delegates and taking their information.
We are constantly evolving our technologies and developing new ones, so if there’s something you think doesn’t exist yet, get in touch, because we may be in the process of creating it, or could even create it for you.
