  • Learn the differences between spend-focused VMS solutions where the contingent workforce is considered a category of spend to be managed, and talent-focused VMS solutions that treat contingent workers primarily as dynamic components of an agile workforce
  • Understand the relative strengths and weaknesses of the major VMS solution providers
With increasing sophistication, buyers now expect contingent workforce programs to prove their value beyond cost saving and visibility. There has been a rise in demand for meaningful data analytics, benchmarks, and insights to inform sourcing decisions and improve efficiency.

Technologies within the workforce ecosystem are evolving, overlapping, or integrating to enable the sourcing, visibility, and management of any worker type, in any region.

This development poses a challenge to buyers who have invested in earlier contingent workforce technologies, whose future strategy may be constrained by the capabilities of incumbent systems to evolve or integrate with emerging solutions.

As a result, buyers should consider their existing technology stack and their business’ wider technology strategy when selecting a VMS provider.
