Peoplenet Accelerates Growth Through Acquisition of Fyre

Peoplenet, a leading provider of cloud-based workforce management solutions, today announced the acquisition of Fyre. Fyre is a staffing technology firm that optimizes the candidate search and placement process with efficient integrations connecting Vendor Management Systems (VMS), Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), and Job Boards directly with Staffing Software platforms. With the addition of Fyre to Peoplenet’s suite of solutions, customers can now optimize and automate the front and back office lifecycle of virtually all staffing transactions from requisition release to time and expense processing.

With the addition of Fyre, Peoplenet further enhances its industry leading solutions for the capture and movement of data across the entire staffing ecosystem. “As our ecosystem grows increasingly complex, the need for tools that connect staffing companies, technologies and buyers is greater than ever,” said Ed Holmes, CEO of Peoplenet. “We are now able to provide our customers with the ability to further increase efficiency, speed and accuracy in both the front and back office.”

“We are excited about joining the Peoplenet team,” said Fyre CEO Tim Arnold. “Our combined technology solutions and deep industry expertise will allow our customers to realize even greater benefits from a single partner.”

Fyre’s Sync solution is especially valuable to those staffing firms focused on fulfillment into MSP and VMS programs. “Fyre’s approach to optimizing the retrieval of requisition data, coupled with Peoplenet’s VMS Data Exchange tool to reconcile time, worker and rate information, creates a winning combination for any staffing firm,” said Andy Zarkadas, CRO of Peoplenet.
