What Makes our MSP Service Different? 

We dip it in a luxurious coating of 24K gold. Just kidding. But we do a few things that go above and beyond the out-of-the-box solutions that you have seen in the industry. Here are a few highlights:

  • Deep research: we spend the time to understand you, your needs, goals and processes.
  • Technology: like shoes, finding the right fit is make-or-break. We take the time to make sure you’re picking the right one.
  • Leveraging suppliers: we assess your community of suppliers and find ways to develop a more successful partnership. With 15 years of industry experience, we’ve partnered with nearly all of them! 
  • Cost control: we make sure you’re not over-paying for labor, while conducting regular audits to ensure every dollar spent helps you achieve goals.
  • Weekly touch points: it’s amazing how many problems strong communication can solve (and avoid).
  • Innovation for the future: we won’t give you the keys and walk away. We will continue to do the research for continuous process improvement so you can evolve and grow. 

MSP Success Story

This company had an existing Managed Service Provider in place that wasn’t delivering on the program. They were facing issues with unapproved staffing vendors and rogue spending, slow response time and lack of trust in the knowledge of the program, leading hiring managers to work outside of the program, just to name a few! We worked with stakeholders to define a second-generation MSP program that best fit their needs and incorporated best in class procedures.

5 questions to see if a Managed Service Provider is the right fit:

  1. Are you concerned that hiring managers across your organization are using different suppliers through inconsistent vetting with a variety of rates?
  2. Are you unable to track spend, headcount and other hiring metrics because data is decentralized? 
  3. Do you rely on manual reporting?
  4. Do you have a clearly defined system in place to manage suppliers?
  5. Does your contingent hiring also allow you to maximize diversity spend capture?

If any of these questions have you thinking there could be a better way, let’s talk!
