INITIATE projects with contingent workers quickly and meet market demands with the help of job templates, support tools, automated approval processes, and premier MSPs.


Create Requisition: Create a new requisition from an existing template and use rate cards to ensure all bill rates are enforced.


Collaborate & Approve: Communicate with internal stakeholders to nail down the details of the requisition. Grant approvals only when compliance and governance standards are met.


Post Requisition: Send requisitions that are configured by position, unit or labor category to direct sourcing platforms and/or an MSP. Target the most appropriate vendors first.

ENGAGE the best candidates for every job posting; receive, evaluate, and select candidates, then negotiate and finalize contracts, all in one solution.


Receive Candidates: View potential candidates according to their status – active job seekers, active workers, workers reaching the end date of their current engagement, and workers in a talent pool.


Evaluate & Select Candidate: Evaluate resumes that machine learning has ranked according to their match with the requisition. Schedule interviews integrated with Microsoft Outlook.


Negotiate & Finalize: Consult real-time labor rates for rate guidance and use built-in tools to streamline back-and-forth communication during negotiation.


MANAGE your entire global workforce, including onboarding, timesheet approval, and invoicing, within a single, centralized system.


Onboard Workers: Automatically initiate onboarding tasks like administering security IDs and access to systems. Third party vendors facilitate background checks.


Track Timesheets: Keep pace with the time and allocated hours that workers enter via desktop or with a mobile application.


Track Invoice & Payments: Automatically generate invoices based on approved timesheets and view remittance details.


COMPLETE the engagement by offboarding and evaluating the performance of all your contingent workers using automated processes. Review analytics and rate vendor performance.


Offboard Workers: Automatically terminate access to systems and promptly retrieve company assets like laptops to minimize security risk.


Evaluate Workers & Vendor: Evaluate workers with a star rating and/or flag as ‘do not re-hire’ to prevent rehiring. Give vendors your performance feedback on workers and the service provided.


Review Analytics: Determine vendor performance with automatically generated KPIs, such as response time, cycle time, and hire rate.
