Managed Service Program

Businesses choose an MSP solution to overcome one or more of the following challenges:

  • External and internal cost of using and managing an agency supply chain
  • Poor recruitment efficiency adding to cost and time taken to hire
  • Poor administration efficiency – payrolls and billing require too much time, effort and maybe delayed and subject to regular inaccuracies
  • Unable to benchmark workforce performance due to lack of focussed analytics
  • Unable to confirm workforce and their suppliers are 100% compliant all the time

What is an MSP?

An MSP is a selective to full outsource covering the core elements of workforce need. The core elements cover:

  • Requisition
  • Authorisation & Order Tracking
  • Supplier Management
  • Recruitment Process Operations
  • Timesheets & Payroll
  • Billing

  • Choosing an MSP delivery model that covers the scope requirement with the optimum mix of supplier expertise, experience and scope
Improve employment and supplier compliances
  • Introduce contractual, service level agreements and a managing quality plan to provide a compliant system
  • Use internal audit to evidence that the system is 100% compliant
Recruitment processes are complex and lengthy
