Workforce Management Solutions

Talent Acquisition and Management Solutions for the Contingent Workforce

As Fortune® 500 and Global 1000 companies expand their non-employee workforce to complement permanent employees, they increasingly turn to our software solutions for comprehensive management of all areas of contingent labor spend, from staff augmentation to the management of statement of work (SOW) based projects.

Categories of workers managed include temporary staff, professional contractors, service workers, consultants, project-based workers, independent contractors, and freelancers. They can even include former employees, such as alumni, interns, and retirees.

Our vision is to change the way companies manage their extended workforce. We offer intelligent workforce solutions—including Vendor Management Systems (VMS) incorporating innovative functionality like Self-Sourcing & Talent Pools—which help procurement, sourcing, and human resources professionals optimize costs, reduce risks, and add value to their contingent labor programs.

With Beeline VMS, Cost Savings Are Just the Beginning

When is a VMS MoreThan a VMS?


For years, the dominant software solution for contingent workforce management has been the “vendor management system.” Originally developed to help procurement teams manage staffing suppliers or vendors who provided temporary labor or contractors for short-term assignments, the VMS has grown into a much more capable, versatile, and powerful contingent workforce management platform.

Today’s VMS solutions not only automate the contingent staffing process. They facilitate the sourcing and management all types of non-employee labor and deliver a wide range of insights to help organizations make better decisions regarding workforce planning and talent acquisition.

With its capabilities to track, monitor, measure, analyze, and compare the performance of staffing suppliers and contingent talent, Beeline VMS provides the foundation for total workforce optimization – determining the right mix of employees and non-employees to achieve specific outcomes.

Whether you call it a vendor resource management system, vendor management software, external workforce solution, or contingent workforce platform, a VMS provides the necessary technology to run entire contingent workforce management programs – even global programs for the world’s largest organizations. In fact, more than 30 percent of Beeline clients are Fortune® 500 or Global 1000 companies.

How to Buy the Best VMS for Your CWM Program


Among the most important criteria are the depth and breadth of the solution’s functionality, including the capability to manage not only traditional contingent staffing, but also more complex services procurement functions and new, emerging talent sources, all in a single platform. As organizations increasingly focus on talent as a strategic differentiator, VMS solutions must provide increasingly sophisticated analytics to deliver the insight required to support total talent acquisition and workforce optimization solutions.

As a result of intensifying VMS functionality requirements, industry experts advise buyers to probe deeply into providers’ track records and product roadmaps to determine whether their performance matches their promises, and whether their commitment to innovation is robust enough to protect their customers from future threats and help them capitalize on future opportunities.

In addition to comparing VMS acquisition costs, experts advise conducting a rigorous analysis of the total cost of ownership of all VMS solutions under consideration. This should include program office staffing needs, which can vary dramatically based on the VMS selected, MSP service and support requirements, and hidden costs for VMS implementations, integrations, customizations, and other services not included in the initial VMS program contract.
