IQNsiders to Put Spotlight on World’s First Marketplace of Services for Contingent Workforce Management

At the IQNsiders 2016 workforce management conference in Washington, D.C., IQN will showcase a first-of-its-kind digital marketplace of services that companies can use to make every aspect of finding, acquiring and managing contingent workers more efficient and effective. Based on IQN’s market-leading ecosystem of partners who drive innovation in workforce management, this marketplace provides a broad range of sophisticated services and technologies that have built upon IQN’s popular vendor management system (VMS) software platform.

“One of the long-standing obstacles to more effective total workforce management is how disconnected the various tools and providers are for each of the tasks a company has when finding, hiring and managing a non-employee worker. That disconnectedness is a thing of the past with IQN’s partner ecosystem,” said Kevin Poll, Vice President of Strategic Alliances at IQN. “Based on our alliances with the most innovative and trusted companies in the industry, our digital marketplace gives customers a one-stop shop for everything they need to win the war for talent against their competitors and get the most out of this important part of their workforce.”

A number of IQN’s ecosystem partners are Platinum Sponsors of the event and will be presenters and roundtable leaders, including:

  • Bartech, a global workforce management and staffing solutions provider
  • Genesys, the leading talent cloud provider
  • GRI, the world’s largest, independent managed service provider
