Aug 18, 2016 - Process Outsourcing (RPO). However, these can be unpopular with supplier recruitment agencies and a neutral entity, such as. Engage VMS ...



HOW A VMS WORKS A Vendor Management System provides an end hirer using multiple agencies with visibility of: Volumes of agency staff they have contracted By site locations By hiring managers By agency Applicable commercial terms and Purchase Orders End hirers see a VMS and its associated technological solutions as an opportunity to eliminate errors, cost and fraud.

While not every end hirer uses a VMS at present, all medium to large hirers almost certainly will in the next 12 to 36 months according to the Freelancer and Contractor Service Association (FCSA). The most common type of VMS in temporary recruitment is Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO). However, these can be unpopular with supplier recruitment agencies and a neutral entity, such as Engage VMS, is the solution. Offering Engage to your end client will also remove the threat of an imposed RPO being put in place between you and your end clients.

WHY ENGAGE WITH IS DIFFERENT Engage allows TEAM member agencies to propose their own VMS solution to clients ahead of any imposed solution, or as part of a joint service pitch. With no charge to end hirers to use Engage. And volume pricing that allows agencies to derive cost benefits by working together. VMS is a key element of the Engage neutral software and service benefiting endhirers, recruitment agencies and payroll companies. However, Engage offers several advantages over conventional industry VMS suppliers:

Low risk, low ongoing fees and no upfront costs; it requires no Capex investment and can be trialled on a pilot basis if required It offers market leading compliance technology and processes Its fresh technology is developed by a skilled team who can provide bespoke integration and development for native client systems As a neutral vendor it can maintain successful working relationships with all participant agencies



The conventional VMS/RPO model presents several issues for participating agencies: Communication and contractual barriers Imposition of aggressive cost cutting Poor supply quality Standardised terms and administration Reduced agency margin Agency pays for wasted resourcing

ENGAGE MODEL With Engage, users enjoy: Universal cost savings Commercially neutral – a collaborative model Quality of supply Direct contractual relationships No duplication of admin Complete transparency of costs and compliance

End hirers, agencies, workers and payrolls all agree to the same overall contract with Engage and they maintain their own direct commercial relationships, without interference. Engage ensures security of participant’s data and is regulated by the Information Commissioners Office. Secure and robust hosting protects against data loss. Engage’s fresh technology allows agencies to demonstrate service leadership to clients: Automated hiring/ worker registration process Automated compliance reporting process (tax status, Right to Work etc)

Cost management: each worker is linked to a purchase order so that costs are closely monitored and time on site can be managed Reporting that visually illustrates on which sites agency staff are located, who ordered it, how much it’s costing and worker’s compliance level Online timesheets with secure authorisation process flowing through to self-bill invoicing Engage provides complete transparency through all layers of the process from payroll through to invoicing. It allows agencies to maintain close ties with site staff and easily demonstrate to the client that they are relevant, suitably experienced and qualified.
