Beeline Transforms Extended Workforce Management with New Products

Beeline | September 15, 2023

Beeline, a leading technology solutions provider for overseeing the global extended workforce, has unveiled two new products designed to tackle workforce challenges that were previously unaddressed in the industry. These innovations, known as Beeline Professional and Global Workforce Intelligence, represent a significant step forward in the management of extended workforces. With a wealth of experience spanning over twenty years, Beeline has played a notable role in shaping the evolution of the extended workforce industry. In recognizing two major shortcomings within the industry—vendor management systems (VMS) primarily catering to large enterprises and the untapped potential for talent visibility and compliance—Beeline has launched these additions to the Beeline Extended Workforce Platform. Beeline Professional has been crafted to meet the specific needs of emerging and expanding extended workforce programs. It stands as the first VMS solution that can be effortlessly activated, featuring pre-configured templates, workflows, dashboards, and reports modeled after the best-in-class programs. Beeline Professional brings scalable extended workforce management, automation, and efficiency to companies with annual non-employee labor expenditures ranging from $1 million to $25 million. Doug Leeby, Beeline's CEO, stated, For far too long, extended workforce solutions have catered to enterprises and ignored the unique needs of mid-sized programs. Using insights from over the last 20+ years in the industry, Beeline Professional is uniquely tailored to meet the core needs of mid-sized programs without compromising quality and innovation. [Source: PR Newswire] Up until now, achieving complete visibility across an organization's entire extended workforce has been a challenge for enterprises. Global Workforce Intelligence, however, offers a solution by aggregating data not only from the company's VMS but also from other systems housing external workers that are not captured in the VMS. This comprehensive workforce visibility enables thorough accounting, analysis, and proactive risk management across the entire extended workforce spectrum. Importantly, Global Workforce Intelligence is compatible with any VMS, not limited to Beeline's. Extended workers play a crucial role in an organization's overall workforce and talent strategy. Beeline's mission is to empower companies to gain a competitive edge by optimizing their extended workforce. The introduction of these two innovative products marks another milestone in Beeline's journey toward fulfilling this mission. About Beeline For over two decades, Beeline has been a competitive force in empowering global businesses to gain an edge in the industry through effective management of their extended workforce. The Beeline Extended Workforce Platform equips companies with the essential visibility needed to proactively mitigate risks, achieve cost savings, and adapt to evolving business needs. Beeline specializes in delivering tailored solutions that specifically address the intricate challenges posed by the extended workforce. Clients benefit from a diverse range of Beeline products, designed to cater to their unique requirements. Through seamless integration capabilities, Beeline's clients can effortlessly consolidate their extended workforce data from various technology platforms, including major procurement and HR systems, enabling a comprehensive approach to workforce management.
