This award reflects Provade's unwavering focus on developing industry-leading VMS solutions that give our clients a competitive edge.
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
Edward Jackson, President of Provade, Inc., an industry leader in enterprise Vendor Management System (VMS) development for global contingent workforce spend management, has been named to the Staffing Industry Analysts’ Staffing 100 List. The list includes 100 individuals who have led the charge to create innovative programs that support the world of contingent work.
“It is an honor to be mentioned alongside other industry trailblazers on this list,” said Jackson. “This award reflects Provade’s unwavering focus on developing industry-leading VMS solutions that give our clients a competitive edge. I am proud to lead a team of individuals who are deeply committed to helping our customers realize measurable results.”
Jackson’s passion for VMS started with an early realization of the limited options available to help companies manage their contingent workforce spend. This led to his founding of SkillsVillage.com in 1999, where Jackson kept one step ahead of the industry, delivering one of the first VMS applications to market.
After PeopleSoft acquired SkillsVillage.com in 2001, Jackson founded Provade in 2004. Provade continues to work under the same principle that he instilled at SkillsVillage.com: VMS should be an integrated world-class solution that is an extension of the customer’s ERP Financial and HRMS systems. Under Jackson’s direction, Provade has pushed the boundaries of innovation and technology, developing mobile applications and a standalone Identity Management system while enhancing support management to broaden the customer experience. Provade’s software is used in over 40 countries.
As the contingent workforce landscape continues to change, Jackson is ready to meet new challenges head-on.
“Over the next 10 years, we anticipate increased demand with a diminishing supply of talent to meet growing market needs. This will create a shift of influence from corporate buyers to service providers,” said Jackson. “Provade is ready to help our clients adapt to this change by continuing to stay abreast of industry trends and developing cutting-edge technology that fosters meaningful results.”
