Running a company in 2021 is quite different than what it used to be. According to a Deloitte report, as a result of the pandemic, an estimated 2.9 billion people, in the global external workforce, have been affected by lockdowns and stay-at-home measures. Now, as COVID-19 enters its second year, maintaining workforce stability has made workforce management all the more challenging, with most employees working from multiple locations. Companies across the globe are continually looking for solutions to simplify their external workforce management processes. In this background, the value of SaaS-based vendor management has never been more pronounced.

Stepping in to meet this requirement is Eqip—a gateway to seamless workforce engine and full cycle vendor management system (VMS). “We have a solution that is optimised for the way the world of work is pivoting,” says Igor Putrenko, founder and CEO of Eqip. The company’s robust solution is a consolidated platform that can help organisations streamline and enhance their external workforce management. It can also digitalise and automate all procurement, sourcing management, and invoicing processes.

Notably, Eqip’s SaaS-based virtual desktop process (VDP) is made of three components—Marketplace, VMS, and Workforce management. By using these components, clients can easily map out their manual processes, optimise them, and turn them into automated processes designed to bring together IT, people, and vendors for efficient workforce operation.
How Does the Platform Work?

The platform’s first component, Eqip Marketplace—enables clients in identifying suppliers and experts that suits their organisation in a single modern web/mobile-UI, thus granting them best contingent workers. Hence, clients can identify best suppliers before mapping out each of the steps involved in the processes.

Once shortlisting of suppliers have been mapped, clients can leverage VMS to facilitate the procurement of suppliers. It focuses on on-boarding shortlisted candidates and ensures a price-VS-quality.

Finally, Eqip Workforce management, acts as a mechanism for clients to manage staffing services and third-party suppliers. It helps in storing a wealth of metrics including payroll or invoicing data, finance tracking and candidate information. This is designed to provide clients with the information they need to assess and manage vendor performance. Moreover, all the automated processes can be easily managed on Eqip’s SaaS vendor management platform for a more seamless and flexible external workforce management.

Leading the Way to Success

Today, what differentiates Eqip from other contemporary solution providers is the company’s extensive experience in the areas of external workforce management. Having helped countless clients overcome their business continuity problems, Eqip understands the typical challenges organisation face with their external workforce, and as such, Eqip tries to resolve these hurdles proactively for its clients.

Moving ahead, Eqip is determined to follow its current trajectory in the SaaS-based vendor management sector. The company is continually looking at new solutions to expand its digital ecosystem and bring more flexibility and efficiency in workforce management. “We expect large companies to become more flexible towards external work and services as a response to both digital transformation and the current COVID-19 crisis. Our solution offers them the flexibility they want and the border market reach they need,” concludes Putrenko.
