SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- PRO Unlimited, a global innovator of contingent workforce management software and services, announced today that the CEO World Awards has named Wand® Vendor Management System (VMS) a Gold winner in the 8th Annual 2020 CEO World Awards.

The CEO World Awards® celebrate the achievements of leaders, executives and their management teams behind the year's most outstanding initiatives and achievements. This annual awards program recognizes individuals and teams who set industry benchmarks for excellence.

Wand VMS was recognized in the "Best New Product, Service, or Solution of the Year" category. A robust platform for managing the contingent workforce in a simple, intuitive way, Wand provides a true omnichannel experience. It enables managers and program owners to oversee the full lifecycle management of contingent workers, including but not limited to:

  • Procuring these workers from staffing suppliers, including scheduling interviews
  • Onboarding and review of timecards and expenses
  • Management of the full lifecycle of Statement of Work (SOW) engagements
  • Building a private talent pool via Wand Talent Network and leveraging it to direct source
  • Benchmarking via PRO's business intelligence module, Wand Discovery

Recent Wand innovations include the industry's most personalized VMS homepage, the first mobile app designed specifically for suppliers (the Wand Mobile Supplier App), and the incorporation of artificial intelligence. The CEO World Award is the latest of many industry awards Wand has recently garnered, including a 2020 Best in Biz International Award, a 2020 World IT Award, and four 2020 International Business Awards.

"We're thrilled that the CEO World Awards have recognized the Wand VMS platform with this prestigious honor," said Kevin Akeroyd, CEO, PRO Unlimited. "We look forward to continuing to leverage our highly configurable, holistic technology platform to build a new ecosystem that helps clients reach both their contingent workforce goals and their broader organizational objectives."
