Randstad-owned twago announced Wednesday the launch of twago enterprise, a talent management system that integrates into an organization's existing vendor management system (VMS) and managed service program (MSP) processes, according to a press release. The offering is a talent pool system that acts as a direct sourcing channel for enterprises.

"When we started working on the development of the twago enterprise offering, we had the vision to create a software as a service solution for talent pool management that would integrate easily and holistically into existing vendor management system (VMS) and managed service program (MSP) processes," says Thomas Jajeh, CEO of twago. "Our goal was to improve the workforce management of large-scale companies and to reduce operating costs over the long term. With the deep expertise and breadth of the Randstad organization, we have succeeded in achieving this goal."
