The recent appointment of Edwin Saayeng in London as Head of Major Projects, follows the appointment of two other accreditation and project management masters by Accredit Solutions – Shane Goldfinch in Melbourne and Callum Green in Dubai. Between them, they have managed accreditation teams, defined accreditation procedures and installed accreditation systems for some of the world’s largest and most challenging events, including the Cricket World Cup, Rugby World Cup, Commonwealth Games, Olympic and Paralympic Games and UEFA Champions League. Together, they bring a broad and deep understanding of the accreditation procedure from the point of view of the client.
Their job is to support clients globally as they prepare for major international events and large sporting tournaments, helping them to re-define their accreditation procedure and build a world-class end-to-end solution that improves security and operational efficiency. Accredit isn’t in the business of helping clients ‘pull it off’. We like to make sure that they excel in the delivery of a robust and future-proof accreditation procedure.
Accreditation is more than producing badges or credentials. It’s an end-to-end solution that the most famous and progressive sports clubs, venues and event organisers in the world are now understanding and implementing. It uses software to automate and simplify labour intensive tasks. It improves operational efficiency and security. It saves time and money. It collects data and keeps it secure. It helps to fulfil legal obligations relating to data collection, data storage, illegal workers and a duty of care to workers and visitors. In some instances it can also lower insurance premiums.
It has always been our mission to build the best accreditation platform in the world, but technology is just one part of that. What the team now brings is a level of experience and knowledge that can make a real difference to our clients. It means we can collaborate, share knowledge and innovate at the highest level. We understand the pain points, and know how to take them away.
Edwin, Shane, and Callum alongside our incredible account management team keep us on our toes, making sure the accredit platform can support the biggest events in the world. Season to season, championship to championship, event to event, making sure the Accredit Platform gets better and better.
Accreditation is all we do, and we love it.
