We’re thrilled to announce that PRO Unlimited’s Wand VMS (vendor management system) has been named a 2017 SIIA CODiE Awards winner in the “Best Business Intelligence Reporting & Analytics Solution” category. CODiE Award recipients represent the companies producing the most innovative businesses technology products across the country, and around the world.
The CODiE judges recognized Wand Discovery, the interactive business intelligence suite within Wand VMS, for its excellence, citing its ability to empower users with actionable data insights that drive cost savings, increase workforce program efficiencies, and enable better future workforce planning.

“[Wand] seemed to be exactly the right fit for its customers, and the decisions it could empower might lead to drastically reduced spending, or at least informed spending,” wrote one of the CODiE judges. “Probably the highest set of marks I’ve given to any software package.”
Providing managers with the business intelligence they need to make smarter, more informed decisions is absolutely one of our missions here at PRO, so we were excited to see that the CODiE judges recognized Wand’s excellence in this area. Here’s a sampling of a few of the judges’ other comments and how they relate to PRO’s commitment to creating technology that enables businesses to more effectively source and manage their contingent workforce:
Wand Discovery presents data in such a way that makes it easy to view, understand, customize and expand upon. Discovery dashboards allow users to get from high-level program data down to the individual transactional line items in just a few clicks.
PRO Unlimited’s latest Wand Discovery innovation is Total Talent Solutions, an industry-first breakthrough that provides clients with total visibility into both contingent AND full-time resources across the entire organization. By importing full-time data and viewing it right next to contingent data, managers can determine the best way to engage resources across all categories from a cost and quality perspective.
In today’s business world, the ability to gain a deep, holistic view of the workforce is key to success. PRO recognizes this and designed Wand on an open SaaS-based architecture that enables easy integration with other software applications, such as ERP, HRIS, and other HR and procurement systems.
Not only do Wand users benefit from PRO’s cutting-edge technology, but they also reap the benefits of our integrated MSP (managed service provider) and VMS approach — a value proposition not offered by other providers.
As it relates to Wand Discovery, users with specific needs can work with the MSP team to create any executive dashboard desired. These customized dashboards can visually reflect the data points requested and enable the ability to interact with this data in a seemingly endless number of ways.
The end goal of a strong reporting and analytics solution should always be empowering users to act on the insights they glean through these reports. Wand Discovery is built to help managers and business leaders unlock opportunities for cost savings and improved contingent workforce management.
