VectorVMS Partners With Makeshift to Power Shift Scheduling for the Gig Economy

The new partnership allows more flexibility for gig workers that need to make schedule adjustments on the fly, improving the overall candidate experience.

RALEIGH, NC–June 29, 2021–VectorVMS, a leading vendor management solution (VMS) that helps organizations manage their contingent labor spend, is pleased to announce its new partnership with Makeshift, a state-of-the-art scheduling software for the gig economy.

Bringing in scheduling software will drive efficiency for those working in the light industrial, retail, and hospitality industries to allow for a better candidate experience. Workers can now pick up and swap shifts as well as see what new opportunities are coming available.

“Everyone is looking for work on their mobile devices these days and with the gig economy growing with no end in sight, we want to enable gig workers for success,” said Marc Husain, Managing Director at VectorVMS. “The partnership between Makeshift and VectorVMS will allow the contractors working for our clients and end-partners the ability to set their schedules and improve the quality of their experience at our custom sites.”

Added Husain: “The gig economy has grown 15% over the last decade, making shift-based work the new normal. We wanted to make sure we had the technology to support the new way the world likes to work.”

Said Taylor Ramchandani, VP of Strategy at VectorVMS: “I am really excited for this partnership and what it will bring for our clients and partners. Having a technology that was built for scheduling fully integrated with our tool will create a better experience for not only our clients but the workers themselves.”

Said Adam Greenberg, CEO of MakeShift: “With over 40% of all personnel costs directed to non-traditional employee types such as contractors, it’s mission-critical for businesses to ensure that the right people, with the right skills, are in the right place at the right time. Now that MakeShift’s scheduling app is integrated with VectorVMS, it’s easier than ever to have that visibility in real time in order to better control contractor spend at your fingertips.”
