PIXID GROUP - smart recruitment technology

A journey of excellence

As the world’s largest European-owned recruitment technology provider, PIXID Group has remained at the vanguard of online staffing and recruitment innovation since 2004.

Central to our powerful suite of smart recruitment and staffing solutions, is PIXID VMS, our flagship product.
This technology, with its keen focus on the mid-market and ability to support Total Talent Acquisition (TTA), equips us to tackle the evolving challenges faced by the recruitment and staffing industry globally.


We created PIXID 20 years ago to offer the first VMS (Vendor Management System) to provide recruitment firms with a simple-to-use, fast-to-implement tool for them and their clients, to manage and gain insight into complex (MSP, Master-Vendor, & Hybrid) staffing supply engagements.

We developed this tool in collaboration with extremely successful, global, staffing firms and to this day have remained true to our commitment with an unrelenting focus on our staffing industry partners.

Today, staffing firms throughout the world utilize our VMS software on a daily basis, in order to deliver the very best talent in the shortest timeframe possible. We hope for the opportunity to learn more about you and your organization, and share how we may be able to add meaningful value to your client engagements.

Étienne Colella, President of PIXID Group

A global business

PIXID was founded in 2004 by Adecco, Randstad and Manpower, to develop and provide a Vendor Management System (VMS) specifically to support the complex French temporary staffing market. Our VMS platform now dominates the French market, facilitating over 42% of all contingent staffing in France.

Following a pivotal management buyout in 2015, led by Étienne Colella our founding Director, and backed by Keensight Private Equity, PIXID has seen significant growth, expanding our portfolio through strategic acquisitions of strong staffing technology companies in the UK (2017), the Netherlands (2018), and Belgium (2020). This expansion not only solidified our presence in Europe but also facilitated our entry into the North American market, with our VMS technology now used in 39 countries across two continents.

Investor Engagement

Keensight Capital’s equity investment to existing shareholders, has catalysed our global expansion, empowering PIXID Group to scale internationally with enhanced speed and efficiency.
