World - Key trends in VMS and MSP highlighted in new report

24 October 2011

Staffing Industry Analysts will release its 2011 VMS and MSP Supplier Competitive Landscape Report later today.

Now in its fifth year, the Report provides the most detailed and comprehensive insight into the experience, positioning and capabilities of VMS and MSP suppliers. The report is in four parts and analyses the development of managed service provision and the use of vendor management systems globally:

• Spend landscape and deployment footprint (identifying market leaders by industry sector and by country).
• Net promoter scores/value proposition spider charts.
• Capabilities and services differentiators.
• Market trends.

John Nurthen, General Manager Europe for Staffing Industry Analysts commented, "every year the Landscape report gets larger and more sophisticated. With 32 MSP providers and 30 VMS providers participating, it is especially gratifying to see more European companies than ever included this year which, in itself, shows the increasing importance of MSP/VMS as a procurement trend, not just in the US but globally."

Among the key trends discussed in this year's report are mergers and acquisitions, vendor partnerships, self-managed (internal) MSP, expansion into emerging markets within Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America, and the increasing inclusion of statement of work project services within VMS/MSP programmes.

The report also identifies that this segment of the staffing market is growing much more quickly than the overall market as organisations seek to better understand their contingent procurement spend, rationalise their supply chains, control risk, improve quality and control cost.
As the global economy endures a prolonged period of uncertainty, demand for MSP and VMS will inevitably continue to grow. The difficult challenge for international organisations is to develop rational programmes that are effective in multiple countries. When it comes to MSP and VMS, staffing markets are at very different stages of evolution, with different regulatory environments and with different market participants and leaders.
