Freelancer Management System (FMS)
A cloud-based workforce management platform. The FMS helps businesses initiate, manage, complete, track and analyze engagements with individual independent workers, who may be sourced by the provider or the business itself. To fall within the FMS category, a solution provider must provide a complete, end-to-end technology system that allows users in an organization to search for and find a particular worker and activate, complete, and pay for the work engagement within the system. Staffing Industry Analysts views FMS as a sub-category of Online Staffing Platforms as it enables specific hirers and specific (typically contingent) workers to enter into, complete and transact work arrangements.
