PRO Unlimited Named a "Cool Vendor" by Gartner

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - April 21, 2015) - PRO Unlimited, Inc., a pioneer and global leader of contingent workforce management solutions, has been named a "Cool Vendor" by technology research firm Gartner in its "Cool Vendors in Procurement and Sourcing Technology, 2015" report.

PRO's Wand Mobile VMS (vendor management system) software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform was cited as the reason for the recognition. PRO released mobile apps for the iPhone and iPad in 2014 -- Wand Mobile for iOS -- and recently announced the availability of a mobile app for Android -- Wand Mobile for Android.

Because Wand Mobile is a 100% native app and uses the full functionality of iOS and Android, it is highly intuitive and easy to use. "By its nature, responsive HTML5-based and hybrid apps cannot make use of native device capabilities such as swipes, pinches, and push notifications," said Ted Sergott, senior vice president, Product Development, PRO Unlimited. "As a 100% native app, Wand Mobile distinguishes itself with these inherent capabilities."

Using Wand Mobile, on-to-go managers can, among other functions:

  • Rate and review workers
  • Review and select candidates
  • Review Statement-of-Work (SOW) project quotes
  • Extend individual worker and SOW engagements
  • View competitive market rates
  • Review, approve, or reject worker time cards and expenses

Contingent workers can use Wand Mobile to photograph and tag receipts, submit expense reports, fill out and submit time cards, submit hours worked on a SOW project, view their history, among other capabilities.

"We are very excited and honored to be the first VMS provider to receive a Gartner 'Cool Vendor' designation," said Sergott. "Our customers have very demanding requirements that we take very seriously. We believe this recognition from Gartner corroborates the decision we made to develop and build Wand Mobile as a 100% native app."
