Nomination Title: PRO Unlimited's Wand VMS
Tell the story about this nominated product or service (up to 650 words). Describe its function, features, benefits, and performance to date:
The new Wand Vendor Management System launched last year as the the most robust, omni-channel VMS solution on the market. Through a highly consumerized user experience and cutting edge technology, Wand provides capabilities and innovations unmatched by any other software in the industry today. Wand enables Managers and program owners to effectively manage all aspects of their Contingent Workforce supply chain. This includes full lifecycle management of procuring contingent workers from staffing suppliers, time and billing management, as well as the full lifecycle of Statement of Work engagements.
Wand also enables companies to self-source talent - the number one way to generate program hard dollar savings in a contingent workforce program. Wand has recently launched its “Talent Network” module, which allows Clients to create their own, PRIVATE self-sourced Candidate pool. Wand then uses industry first parsing technology to automatically match and suggest Candidates to the manager based on a robust, proprietary algorithm - another industry first.
All of this is accomplished via an omnichannel experience for the Web, mobile devices, tablets, and wearables. Wand Mobile is the highest rated VMS application in the Apple App Store. The app allows both hiring managers and workers to easily carry out hundreds of tasks from either their iPhone, Android device, or using our industry first tablet app for VMS: Wand Tablet.
Wand delivers a comprehensive solution for all of the stakeholders in the contingent labor ecosystem/supply chain, including procurement and HR leaders, department heads, managers, workers, and suppliers.
- WAND MOBILE -
Wand Mobile is a 100% native app, built from the ground up for Apple and Android devices and delivers a rich user experience that leverages the full capabilities of the device. This includes such features as Touch ID for login, use of the phone’s Camera to capture receipts for expense reports, push notifications, and more. A truly consumerized experience, Wand Mobile allows users to seamlessly move from the Web to Mobile, instantly.
- WAND DISCOVERY: CONTINGENT LABOR AND TOTAL TALENT MANAGEMENT BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE SOLUTION -
Wand Discovery is Wand VMS’ Business Intelligence and Data Visualization tool that empowers Clients with actionable analytics to drive significant cost savings, contingent workforce program efficiencies, and helps to empower executive to make critical workforce planning decisions. Wand Discovery captures every single process that a Manager, Contingent Worker, Supplier, and anyone else who carries out any stage of the contingent workforce lifecycle in the Wand VMS. As a result this enables in-depth, actionable reporting and analytics about every detail of a Company’s contingent workforce program - no other solution in the industry offers this level of comprehensive contingent workforce (and FTE) business intelligence.
Through these interactive dashboards, Managers can view information such as: Global headcount and distribution by labor type (Staffing Sourced, Statement of Work, Payroll, etc.), Request fulfillment cycle time, Supplier performance, Bill Rate Benchmarks, Spend analytics, and much, much more.
Because of the success of Wand Discovery, we have now enabled TOTAL TALENT MANAGEMENT through Wand as well! Wand VMS even allows Clients to import their FULL TIME data along with their Contingent data, to create total talent management dashboards. This gives them insights into what the best ways are to engage talent, and lets them review worker quality ACROSS labor categories, and market rate data side by side. Never before has it been so easy to identify areas to drive cost savings, program effectiveness, and worker quality.
Wand Discovery is incredibly unique in our industry, and it is another example of how PRO Unlimited has pushed the edge of technology to deliver actionable intelligence that ultimately results in Client savings and program quality.
