High Tech Manufacturing/Robotics
A global technology and innovation leader in the design of world-class production systems for aerospace, automotive, recreation, heavy industry, solar energy and the military.
In a key North American location, the company faced a multi-dimensional staffing problem:
- A shortage of qualified candidates for their large and growing demand
- A lack of institutional control and visibility
- Too much variance between supplier contracts
- Invoicing complexity that threatened to overwhelm the accounting department
Compounding this, several key individuals assigned to contingent hiring functions were needed for redeployment in other areas.
Finally, the company wanted to regain control over contingent staff spend with a solution that capped cost at the current level.
The company reached out to Gonzalez Contingent Workforce Services for expert guidance and assistance in managing the process. This started with analytical tools to provide insight into the entire contingent workforce program. Based on expertise with the industry’s leading software solutions, Gonzalez’ chose Peopleclick Authoria Vendor Management Software.
In addition to addressing the core problem, the solution had two key performance advantages; implementation was fast – addressing a critical need – and its ease of use helped assure it was up and running quickly and efficiently.
Another essential target was a “no-cost” solution – capping the spend at the current level while resolving the staffing challenges. Gonzales expertise – its All-Around Precision™ – exceeded this objective with room to spare.
With Gonzalez’ expertise the company is experiencing significant benefits in monitoring the market for needed resources. These benefits include the promised cost-savings. One example is through use of the Business Intelligence functionality within the Peopleclick Authoria VMS solution, specifically regarding setting the right price for candidates. The results are in line with documented hard savings of 10-20% in similar settings.
Beyond delivering cost savings and a seamless solution, several value-added benefits also flow from Gonzalez’ expertise:
- Gonzalez was able to mitigate risk regarding supplier contracts that previously were not properly covered for various liability requirements
- Supplier contracts are maintained in compliance with a range of requirements, both legal and corporate policy
- Contract consistency across suppliers assures level pricing and terms and eliminates maverick spending
- Gonzalez manages the previously-complicated billing system via Consolidated Invoicing, taking the burden off the company’s accounting group.
