A leading global pharmaceutical corporation faced substantial challenges that limited productivity and inhibited efficiency. The company’s creative and marketing team utilized traditional staffing practices, which lead to excessive spending, a lack of compliance, and limited insight into talent management metrics. The use of an outdated staffing model also contributed to challenges in meeting deadlines and increased the frequency of project delays.

PRO Unlimited was engaged to implement its vendor-neutral managed service program (MSP) and vendor management system (VMS) model to address the organization’s business challenges. Being an integrated, vendor-neutral platform allows for the best talent at the market’s most competitive rates. PRO has shown its ability to improve operational efficiencies and mitigate risks while engaging the most highly qualified and cost-effective contract talent.

The one-stop enterprise solution and expert consultative support provided the pharmaceutical company’s stakeholders with the following:

• Improved cost-savings by negotiated markups and broader access to a niche pool of talent due to PRO’s vendor-neutral model
• Streamlined on/off-boarding, consolidated invoicing, and real-time reporting from PRO’s WAND VMS solution
• Expedited RFP events outsourced and vetted qualified candidates presented in a matter of hours/days versus weeks from initial SOW approval through PRO’s onsite MSP intelligence and Strategy, Analytics, and Metrics (SAM) team

This strategy produced significant benefits for the client. Key results included:

  • Savings of 36% during initial implementation
  • An accelerated recruitment process
  • An expanded supplier pool with new vendors
  • Positive impact on cost and candidate quality

PRO’s tools and resources enable clients to effectively manage a robust and dynamic contingent workforce. Not only will they gain complete control and visibility of their workforce, but they will cut costs and increase efficiency by partnering with PRO.
