The VMS landscape is rapidly changing as it keeps up with the future of work. The way organizations are sourcing different types of contingent workers today requires a more tailored approach from VMS providers than in the past. Although the general need for temp and professional staff augmentation as well as SOW technology solutions remain, more and more organizations are looking beyond those traditional areas nowadays. Areas of increased interest to corporate organizations include how to incorporate independent contractors, gig workers, student workers, outsourced workers and more light industrial workers in the VMS solution. Many VMS providers have been adapting to these changing client needs and providing new solutions.

Pixid VMS was founded by Adecco France, Manpower France and Randstad (Vediorbis) in 2004 in France. It had the main aim to source and digitize staffing contracts. But since then, the VMS provider has cut all ties with the above three major staffing organizations and grown outside the boundaries of the more traditional, operational staffing technology solution it once was. Since October 2015 the investment fund Keensight Capital took a majority stake in the company and facilitated multiple mergers and acquisitions in the ATS, VMS and HR technology space.

Pixid’s international goals have grown beyond France, and its VMS solution has established a firm foothold in Europe. An international version of Pixid’s VMS solution has emerged — offering cross-border, multi-lingual and multi-currency capabilities, and a far faster set-up time. These developments have increased its appeal for non-complex recruitment projects with a requirement for rapid implementation. Extended sourcing, matching capabilities and BI reporting capabilities also have been added to the solutions’ portfolio, delivering a more versatile VMS solution for the mid-market segment.

Here’s why Pixid matters:

  • To the market: Pixid is able to deliver a VMS solution with a strong footprint in France and Europe. The company has been active in the M&A market, providing strong partnerships with European VMS and ATS providers. It is working strongly to enable a cloud-based total talent acquisition solution, where permanent and contingent workers can be managed together centrally through integrations with Pixid’s technology partners. Although its customer base is now mainly European, Pixid has an increasingly international focus, recently implementing pilots in the US and Canada and with a view to expanding its transatlantic operations.
  • To customers: Especially those looking for a fast-to-deploy contingent staffing solution, will find a partner worth exploring in Pixid. The primary customers for Pixid’s vendor management solution are the staffing agencies and MSPs (master vendor, neutral vendor and hybrid) who provide their services to their corporate end-clients, using Pixid’s VMS technology. For French companies, a specific VMS solution targeted to the French market can be offered directly to corporations as a contingent staffing procurement tool, unlike the international version.
