VMS Technology Advisory

Technology Neutral MSP - HCMWorks

Expert Vms technology advisory to take you to the next level

A Vendor Management System (VMS) is a web-based (Cloud/SaaS) application that acts as a central hub, and a system of record, to procure, manage and pay, your contingent workforce - sourced directly, or via staffing agencies and strategic service providers.

VMS technology is fundamental to the success of your contingent workforce management strategy.

With a well-configured VMS, organizations can automate and streamline critical processes that support the sourcing, acquisition, management and payment of your on-demand, non-employee workforce. This includes requisitions (request for services), candidate selection and on-boarding, compliance, approvals, time management and scheduling, expense management, payments and reporting. In addition, VMS technologies can provide extensive reporting functionality and features to support your human capital strategies and objectives.

  • Talent Quality - Optimize you access to talent by enabling more sourcing options and greater staffing supplier selection.
