Veriforce Launches Enhanced Capabilities to Create Faster, More Contextual Connections Between Hiring Companies and Third-Party Contractors, Empowering a Global Marketplace

Solves Long-Standing Pain Point for Organizations, Enabling them to Identify and Hire Qualified Contractors to Grow their Businesses and Strengthen Supply Chains       

HOUSTON – Sept. 29, 2020Veriforce, the premier supply chain risk and compliance management solution, today announced new, innovative capabilities to better connect the more than 800 hiring clients, 50,000 contracting companies, and 2.5 million workers in the Veriforce Network. As part of what is now the industry’s most powerful marketplace, third-party contractors can showcase their capabilities, experience, qualifications, and safety readiness, making it faster and easier for companies to make informed hiring decisions to create safer workplaces and mitigate risks across their supply chains.

Organizations increasingly rely on third-party contractors to sustain and expand their businesses, yet they have long struggled to connect and share information that is critical to smart hiring practices, including health and safety practices and compliance activities. Failure to properly vet contracting companies and their workers can have serious consequences, including compromised safety and security and costly business disruptions.  According to a study from Deloitte Insights, 87% of respondents have faced a disruptive incident due to third-parties in the past two to three years. Companies that leverage proactive risk mitigation measures, such as vetting contractors for compliance and safety readiness, reduce those risks and spend 50% less to manage disruptions than those who did not take a proactive approach. 

“Identifying qualified contractors is a critical component of supply chain risk management, yet it is challenging, especially for those that are juggling scores of contractor companies to fill jobs around the world,” said Colby Lane, CEO Veriforce. “They need an efficient way to find and assess contractors to bring onboard. These enhancements to the Veriforce Network help to create a reliable, global marketplace for them to connect and grow their businesses, safely.” 

Enriched Profiles and Enhanced Search Capabilities Strengthen the Veriforce Network
