What’s in a VMS?

VMS Considerations

A lot can be.  Things have changed since Work Nexus originally hit the market focused exclusively on simplifying and accelerating contract labor-focused processes.  When it arrived in 1998, ours was one of the first VMS solutions on the market, having since delivered hundreds of millions of dollars in cost savings to customers around the world.

Today, Work Nexus has evolved into the most custom-configurable VMS available, ideal for organizations seeking automation of—and enterprise-wide visibility into—contract labor, independent contractor, commodity and/or statement-of-work services.

“It’s a natural progression,” says the executive sponsor at one consumer and industrial packaging company. “We first deployed Work Nexus to automate our contract labor processes, but its capabilities lend themselves to more than that. Now, they make our managers’ lives easier on the SOW side of things, too.”

Harmonizing all of these processes through one VMS allows Work Nexus customers to significantly reduce legal and compliance risks, while at the same time obtaining visibility into company-wide spend and usage levels.

What should you look for in a VMS?  There are many things to watch out for, but their importance within your organization will depend largely on the needs of your stakeholders.
