JACKSONVILLE, FLA., May 28, 2015 – Beeline, a global leader in software solutions for managing the extended workforce, announced today that the company has developed the industry’s first and only self-sourcing solution for vendor management systems (VMS). This innovative and revolutionary approach allows companies to search for, negotiate with, and engage directly with non-employee talent through their VMS.
In August 2014, Beeline acquired industry leader OnForce, a freelancer management system used by hundreds of companies to directly source freelance talent. “Over the last 10 months, a dedicated team has been laser focused on realizing our vision of connecting talented professionals directly to the companies that need them,” said Doug Leeby, Beeline president. “Beeline VMS’s single platform for managing the entire extended workforce already provides clients a competitive advantage with its unique capabilities for sourcing contractors, consultants, and statement of work projects. Adding capabilities to self-source a percentage of this workforce is ground breaking.”
Beeline expanded OnForce from a freelancer management system to a complete talent exchange and online work platform. “Beeline Self-Sourcing” is the first plugin for VMS, where contractors (and freelancers) are self-sourced safely with the governance and oversight demanded by enterprise firms. This new integration allows Beeline customers to connect to the Beeline Talent Network – a robust and continuously growing network of talent who enjoy more autonomy in managing their careers and who want to work with the world’s best companies.
“Fifteen years ago, Beeline and the VMS industry revolutionized the manner in which contractors are sourced and managed,” added Leeby. “Today, we lead again in innovation. True to Beeline standards, we put great care into creating an exceptional user experience. Now our clients can simply flip a switch to get direct access to a skilled alternative candidate pool. We developed a fully integrated solution with unprecedented access to talent that requires no implementation, complies with talent sourcing policies, and is ridiculously easy to use.”
Beeline will unveil this solution with further details at its annual client conference on June 9 on Amelia Island where over 100 attendees representing over 60 companies, partners, and analysts will participate. The solution’s early adopter program has started and is scheduled to go live with Beeline Self-Sourcing this summer.
