Peoplefluent Vendor Management System Version 6.0 Adds Enhanced User Experience

Interactive Functionality Includes Intuitive Navigation, Dashboards With Drag-and-Drop Widgets, Interactive Icons and New Candidate Comparison Feature

RALEIGH, NC and WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - Jun 18, 2012) - Peoplefluent™, offering a unique combination of best-of-breed mobile and SaaS suite solutions for Talent Management, Vendor Management and Workforce Compliance and Diversity, today announced the general availability of the latest version of its Vendor Management System, VMS 6.0. Consistent with the Company's global Recruitment Management System (RMS), Peoplefluent VMS 6.0 features intuitive navigation, dashboards with drag-and-drop widgets and single sign-on, easy-to-use approach.

Peoplefluent's Vendor Management applications provide important visibility into the extended workforce -- including contingent and contract workers, as well as an organization's services procurement spend -- allowing organizations to better manage their spend, compliance, risk and efficiency. By addressing the total workforce, VMS 6.0 enables organizations to gain control over talent decisions, driving improved productivity while averting the misclassification and other issues related to contingent workforce management.

Tom Tisdale, Senior Vice President at Peoplefluent, said, "With VMS 6.0, the user experience supports stakeholder collaboration, including line of business employees, engagement managers and senior management. VMS provides a 360 degree view of contingent labor as part of an overall workforce strategy." He continued, "Our ability to manage talent acquisition and integration in a single solution suite, combined with VMS intelligent analytics, rate benchmarking and ability to integrate with other key human resource management functionality, furthers Peoplefluent's vision of harnessing the power of talent."

Also new in VMS 6.0 is Candidate Comparison. This feature enables users to select and compare the candidates submitted to a requisition based on selection criteria they define. Candidate Comparison presents selected candidates as side-by-side views to enable managers to evaluate best fit candidates based on the criteria that matters to them. Candidate Comparison also helps to standardize the decision-making process, ensuring the choices are based on objective measures.

Growing concerns about the disparities between required skills and available talent have forced organizations to source talent globally as well as to recruit "free agent" or contingent workers. While expanding the talent pool in this manner delivers benefits such as cost control and the ability to satisfy "one off" project requirements, intensifying governance pressures mean companies need to carefully manage the risks associated with independent contractors and vendors. VMS 6.0 has been especially designed to assist organizations through proper vendor management and reporting.

Tisdale continued, "When we speak with executives, managers and HR professionals alike, there is one pervasive need: a single, consolidated view of HR. Peoplefluent continues to support this requirement through our comprehensive Talent Management applications, whether they are accessed over the Web or on mobile devices."

VMS 6.0 also provides a flexible, global solution designed to address the Agency Workers Regulation. Designed to support U.K. and European obligations, the solution's new configuration settings and fields offer program management teams the appropriate level of information to meet various implementation styles. By enabling these features, organizations can measure contingent worker length in service by job function; capture permanent employee equivalent numeration packages; and associate umbrella worker types.

Already in use by several high profile healthcare and business services organizations, VMS 6.0 is available now. More information can be accessed here.
