Discover how we have improved AIMA's staff intranet and made a difference for their HR department and the wider business.

Investing in the future

When you represent 2,000 corporate members in over 60 countries your staff systems need to be as sophisticated as the services you provide to your members.

The Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) has member organisations whose fund managers are responsible for $2 trillion hedge fund and private credit assets.

With a growing number of international offices and staff AIMA realised they would benefit from a smart HR system which would support their expanding operations. 

What they wanted

AIMA wanted to move from multiple and manual HR records & ampere-hour systems to a single online portal that all global staff could easily access. AIMA appointed Pixl8 as they could see the opportunity to work in partnership to develop a staff intranet that would truly meet their needs.

Highlights include: multiple website design and functionality upgrades; integrations with third party CRMs and launching our HR portal.

What we delivered



Easy management of new starters 

For AIMA a key benefit of their new staff portal is the ability to get important information to new starters in a quick and concise way. Notifications send users to the portal where they can check boxes to confirm they have read essential documentation. HR teams can easily see overall compliance with mandatory reading.




All-in-one platform for staff

Staff can access their past employment records from their home screen dashboard. This one-stop-shop brings together holiday requests, sickness records, personal details and more - all accessed from single sign on.



Improve usability for HR Staff

HR team members benefit from personalised permissions giving them the correct level of secure access to add and update details such as job titles and salary. Staff are automatically notified of any changes to their records. The HR teams can see at a glance employee engagement such as the take-up of company benefits. 


Users’ feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. They find the new system highly intuitive and easy to understand. Minimal web support is needed.

With everything in one place processes have been streamlined and time saved - making life easier for staff across their offices.

And then some

AIMA valued the ability to collaborate with Pixl8 on the development of their new intranet. Pixl8 took an effective ready-made-solution built on the Preside Platform and worked closely with AIMA to make sure the functionality fully met their needs. 

Open dialogue is at the heart of a partnership which both companies are looking to build on - supporting AIMA’s growing ambitions for its staff and members around the world.
