Welcome to Xref

Since listing in early 2016, we have established our position within the human resources technology industries of the APAC region, Europe, and North America. A high-growth business, we have been able to apply the agility and flexibility of our platform to scale and meet the needs of the varying markets we operate in and organisations we support.

The cloud-based, automated nature of our platform makes it a unique candidate referencing solution that not only saves clients time and money during the recruitment process but also enables them to make smarter, more informed hiring decisions.

Xref collects up to 60 percent more data, five times faster than traditional reference checking methods. We turn complexity into simplicity, uncertainty into clarity, and knowledge into achievement.

Xref is on a rapid and exciting growth trajectory, propelled by a simple business model; widespread adoption of new, disruptive technologies; partnerships and integrations with like-minded, automated talent systems and demand for specialised human resources services.
