Partnership: ICon, IQNavigator
ICon Professional Services announced a partnership to bring its online independent contractor compliance tool, ICverify, to users of IQNavigator's vendor management system.
Foster City CA-based ICon's "application program interface" will allow IQNavigator users to check independent contractor compliance without leaving IQNavigator's VMS.
"In my conversations with our global 2000 client base, it's clear there's a black hole of maverick spend when it comes to the consulting spend category," said Art Knapp, executive VP of MSP segment at IQNavigator. The ICon partnership will address the independent contractor market to ensure compliance and control, Knapp said.
