IQNavigator and Visier Enter Strategic Partnership to Deliver Complete Enterprise Workforce Visibility
Partners Fuel New Era of Workforce Intelligence by Providing a Holistic View of Employee and Non-Employee Labor
DENVER, January 19, 2015 – IQNavigator, the leading provider of non-employee workforce management solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Visier, the innovation leader in workforce intelligence. Through the partnership the companies will transform workforce decision-making by delivering to business leaders insights that span their complete, extended workforce.
As found in a recent study by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, “a growing number of corporate boards, CEOs, and CHROs understand that by applying data-driven tools to improve decisions about talent, they can improve revenues and profits.” In alignment with this, ninety-one percent of respondents to a poll performed recently said their organizations plan to increase workforce analytics capabilities within the next twenty-four months.
IQNavigator and Visier are responding to this market demand with an integrated approach that combines non-employee (or contingent) labor data from IQNavigator’s Vendor Management System (VMS) with employee data from Visier’s Workforce Intelligence solutions.
“Making faster, fact-based decisions regarding total workforce is a daily concern for our customers, especially with a growing reliance on non-employee labor to quickly fill talent gaps,” said Joe Juliano, president and CEO of IQNavigator. “Our partnership with Visier will revolutionize how our customers view and act on their extended workforce. For the first time, they’ll have easy access to the direct and indirect costs related to managing permanent and non-employee labor, which typically represents as much as 70 percent of a company’s total costs.”
“Visier’s Workforce Intelligence solutions shine a light on what may otherwise be organizational blind spots, letting HR and business leaders uncover opportunities for optimization, predict future trends, develop data-driven plans, and take proactive actions,” said John Schwarz, Visier founder and CEO. “Our partnership with IQNavigator allows organizations to easily extend this value to their total workforce, including employees and all contingent staff. For the first time, customers can easily analyze their entire workforce together – against the same measures – to optimize their business results.”
The companies’ distinct focus on Total Workforce Visibility is designed to provide deeper insights into talent sourcing and management.
