HERNDON, VA – September 19, 2016 – MBO Partners, the nation’s leading provider of engagement services for the independent workforce, has today announced the release of MBO ConnectTM 2.0, a major update to their industry-leading Preferred Talent Network and direct sourcing product.
MBO Connect, which launched in 2015, is a tool that allows companies to quickly and compliantly engage and re-engage highly skilled independent talent from their network—without relying on intermediaries. MBO Connect brings an on-demand approach to talent management, enabling businesses to directly match open project opportunities with trusted independent workers who have already proven their value.
“Through MBO Connect 2.0, we are making it easier than ever for American businesses that increasingly rely on independent workers to find the best talent for critical projects,” said Gene Zaino, CEO of MBO Partners. “The enterprise space is ripe for a platform like Connect 2.0 that ensures compliant, cost-efficient and streamlined engagement with an in-demand workforce. MBO Partners is committed to continue providing the latest technology solutions that help self-employed professionals and the enterprises that engage them both reduce risks and succeed.”
Following a successful pilot launched in 2015, MBO Partners incorporated enterprise feedback to enhance the tool. MBO Connect 2.0 upgrades include a new user interface, automated resume parsing, alerts and more. Central to 2.0 is the focus on ease of use, delivered by point-and-click workflows, automation and just-in-time notifications letting users know when attention is required.
“Connect 2.0 is all about simplicity,” said Julian Richards, VP of Product Development at MBO Partners. “We put a lot of effort into streamlining the experience, taking as much of the searching and vetting as possible off the manager’s and contractor’s plates so they can focus on their project work.”
