Say No to Manual Guard Schedules

Automated Guard Shift Scheduling

Celayix cuts the time required to create a security guard shift schedule by over 95%. You’ll be able to generate and view weekly or monthly security guard schedule across multiple sites and multiple clients in mere minutes.

With Celayix, you can automate all of your manual shift assignments with Auto Fill. You can send out empty shifts for guards to self schedule instantly, or use shift bidding so you can control each assignment. You’ll cut days of wasted scheduling effort each month compared with Excel or Google Sheets templates and other scheduling systems.


Manage Sick Calls, No-Shows, and Last-Minute Schedule Changes

Absenteeism can cost you over $2,600 per employee per year. It’s not only costly, but stressful, and can put your client contracts at risk.

Celayix’ Find Replacement feature makes sure all of your shift replacements are fully qualified and available, and the Celayix AI Engine tells you who is the best fit, ranked top to bottom. Shift change notifications go out automatically and shift confirmations come back in minutes without a single phone call.

Instant Communications

Mobile Scheduling and Time & Attendance App

The Celayix mobile scheduling and time & attendance app works on any supported version of Android or iOS.  You’ll get automated shift reminders, instant notification of shift assignments, and instant confirmations back.

Your guards will enjoy flexible self-scheduling, shift-bidding, and rules-compliant shift-swapping, and benefit from automated safety checks when they are working shifts alone.

Eliminate Unprofitable Overtime

Control Guard Overtime

Some overtime is good for business – when you can bill it back to your client. It’s not good when you accidentally schedule a guard who triggers their time and a half.

With Celayix, you can create your own rules about how guard overtime is scheduled, and Celayix won’t schedule overtime. You will get alerts when you try to assign a shift that will create unprofitable overtime and make better choices, and you can always override those warnings for profitable overtime.

Your Shift-Scheduling Expert

Artificial Intelligence-Based Shift-Scheduling

The Celayix AI uses machine learning to continually look at ALL of your past schedules and recommend the best shift assignments for your new schedules.

Are you uncertain about how to use AI technology? With Celayix, it’s entirely automatic. When you generate a new schedule or find a replacement for a sick-call or dropped or guard shift, the Celayix AI can schedule your best fit.

This is just the beginning: Celayix is investing heavily in partnerships with leading AI researchers to develop new scheduling and workforce management capabilities to the Celayix scheduling platform.

This shift scheduling expert works 24 x 7 and never needs a vacation.

100% Accurate Guard Schedules

Scheduling Rules Engine

A rules engine allows you to set rules about how your guard scheduling should be done, and enforces the rules so you don’t have to think about whether your schedule is a good schedule.

The Celayix rules engine is the heart of our scheduling automation.

You can create limitless rules that define your shift work policies, client and employment contracts, overtime, availability, equipment requirements, certifications, and even your business objectives. As a result, every schedule will be a good schedule, every time.

Eliminate Timesheet Fraud

100% Accurate Time & Attendance

Time & attendance, timesheet or timecard fraud can cost you as much as 7% of your total payroll, and an astounding 43% of workers admit to padding timesheets.

Celayix gives you 100% accurate GPS and AI-verified facial recognition so you know the right guard is in the right place at the right time. In case they aren’t, you’ll be the first to know – not your client. With Celayix, you only pay for actual time worked on-site.

End Data Entry Errors

100% Accurate Payroll & Billing

Time & attendance and payroll errors can cost you as much as 8% of your payroll value.

Shockingly, 24% of security guards will look for new work after the very first payroll error, and only 44% of those guards would reconsider looking for work after an error is fixed.

Celayix’ time & attendance software will send your security guard shift performance data to your preferred payroll, billing, and financial systems and make those problems disappear.

Best-of-Breed AND All-in-One

Guard Schedule and Time & Attendance Integration

A long time ago, in what seems to be a galaxy far away, we used to need one vendor to supply our critical office systems in order for everything to work together. When you wanted a guard touring solution, you ended up with a weak scheduling tool or none at all.

You don’t need to do that anymore.

Celayix connects its guard shift-scheduling and time & attendance software in the cloud with guard touring, incident management, payroll, billing, accounting, HR, and many other applications. Celayix has over 20 years experience connecting to over 80 different software systems.

The End of All-In-One Compromises for Security Services

We will give you the All-in-One system with Best-of-Breed functionality. Our integrated solutions make sure that 100% of your guard and patrol services requirements are met.

Brooke Stephens
247 Security Inc
{The software and the support was amazing and easier than we thought it would be, the Celayix team worked with us on helping get what we needed done. The best part was that they helped us make what we already had work with their system. The process of not having to change everything we had already in place was a great relief. We knew that there would be things that we would have to do differently and the fact that our employees didn't have to be trained a lot to use the system saved us on expense. We would recommend using Celayix to anyone that wants to make things more efficient and accurate for what they already have or even if they want to start from scratch.{
