Vendor Management System FAQs

What is a contingent worker?

A contingent worker is anyone who does work on behalf of your organisation, but is not a direct employee, such as a temporary worker, consultant or freelancer.

The external workforce refers to workers who are employed on a temporary basis or statement of work. This includes contingent workers, as well as services procurement.

A vendor management system is a web-based software application that centralises the end-to-end lifecycle management of extended workers and statement of work needs.

Core VMS capabilities typically include functions related to hiring, tenure management, invoicing, worker tracking and onboarding/offboarding.

A vendor management system can help your organisation manage contingent workforce cost, efficiency, quality and risk in a single platform.
