Procurement

TalentWave helps Purchasing Professionals make the right contingent workforce decisions while minimizing the risk…

Enabling Flexible Workforce Category Management

Transparency, control, and cost savings define the goals of a Purchasing professional. Contingent labor and consulting are two indirect spend categories with exciting opportunities but also huge risks. Many procurement organizations oversee their own contingent labor and consulting purchasing. Make TalentWave your trusted partner to optimize what is often the largest and least optimized spend category within an organization: the independent workforce.

Strategic Issues for Procurement Leaders

Procurement leaders are concerned with flexible workforce category management issues such as:

  • Greater visibility and control over your consulting vendors and labor suppliers
  • Decreasing the overall cost and increasing the value from vendors and suppliers
  • Simplified contracts administration, vendor contract compliance
  • Better oversight and management of vendor and supplier performance (including SLAs)
  • A/P process simplification and invoice consolidation
  • Uniform agreements with independent contractors, consulting vendors and labor suppliers
  • Integration with MSP programs and VMS systems
