Supporting Hiring Managers in VMS/Procurement Environments

For the last two weeks, we have taken time to highlight one of our most successful service areas – serving clients with vendor management/procurement/managed service providers. This week, we are highlighting a few points we feel are important to IT and business area hiring managers working within organizations with VMS or procurement systems.

As a hiring manager, you have a job to do. Projects to manage. Deadlines to meet. Budget limitations to overcome. Working within a Vendor Management System (VMS) can bring additional challenges to that project, deadline and budget.

One of our clients said to us, “From my perspective as an IT manager, sometimes our VMS can be helpful in filling our general needs quickly and effectively. However, at other times it can complicate our hiring processes when I have a specialized need.”

EDGE understands the balance required when working in this type of hiring environment. You have needs for both resources with general skills and people with specialized experience. We can help you navigate the hiring process and get the talent you need to be successful.

Our experience includes supporting companies with mature VMS and others who are implementing new systems. Our familiarity with the goals of the system, as well as our knowledge of the talent pool, enable us to be uniquely positioned to help you meet your goals.

Another client said about us, “EDGE’s ability to come and work within our Vendor Management System has been outstanding. They have been able to understand our needs quickly and work within the system with minimal complications. They understand what we need as in-the-trenches managers and how to balance that with our VMS. The consultants they bring into the organization have been outstanding.”
