Spend Matters Almanac: Freelancer Marketplaces

“Providers of exchanges where a virtually unlimited number of people and different businesses needing work performed can interact and transact with a virtually unlimited number of people who are seeking to perform work.
The solutions have expanded and evolved beyond “freelancer management systems” (FMS) and includes providers that support a much broader range of use cases, such as: direct sourcing for individual workers/small service providers; some level of RFX and contracting; candidate matching and selection, compliance and engagement management; “self-sourcing” from a group of pre-vetted workers and/or service providers; project management; VMS and AOR/EOR integrations; and invoicing and payments. Finally, these solutions accumulate large volumes and different types of data for analytical & management purposes.”
