Today, many types of systems are available to support organizations in managing their non-employee workforce. Vendor Management Technology (VMS) is at the core with supporting and emerging technologies such as Freelance Management Systems (FMS) and other technologies specific to assessments, testing and or compliance requirements.
With the right technology, your company can drive efficiencies, streamline processes, and enable visibility and control. This makes tasks more manageable and enables organizations to scale better. It also allows for fewer costly errors, enables better quality of service, allows for quicker decision making, and lowers the administrative overhead associated with procurement. But perhaps most importantly, the right technology provides relevant data so you can get insight into your contingent workforce and the management of them.
And in big data lies great potential. The more you know, the better decisions you can make, the better you can control spend, and the better you can manage operations.
HCMWorks has experience working with all the leading technology providers to support contingent workforce management programs. Additional details are available in our technology solutions section.
