HRO Today magazine tapped PRO’s Senior Director of Product Marketing Brad Martin to share his expert industry perspectives about the evolution of Vendor Management Systems (VMS).

In the article titled, “The Consumerization of Contingent Workforce Management Technology,” Brad discusses the top issue facing the VMS landscape – a lack of consumerization. He says that the technology has historically suffered from a robotic and cumbersome approach to user interaction. However, a dramatic change is taking place in the contingent workforce management space. The “consumerized enterprise” solutions found in some of today’s leading consumer applications are now crossing over to the business domain. There needs to be a synergy between enterprise processes and the ease of use that these VMS deliver to both HR managers and contingent workers.

Brad goes on to highlight a number of consumerized VMS features including:

  • Mobility
  • Contextual interface design
  • Vendor profiles containing a “Yelp!-like” review system
  • Enhanced UI

To learn about these innovations and the impact they have on efficiency and business outcomes, read the full article here.
