Announces the Most Comprehensive Industry Buyer's Guide with Crowd Sourced Ratings for Products, Services, and Educational Offerings from Over 3,300 HR Companies

“’s buyer’s guide is a Trip Advisor “like” format for a service that offers an alternative to the traditional analyst model”, says Jeff Nugent CEO of Contingent Workforce Solutions. “A buyer’s guide based on feedback sourced from the crowd gives a more realistic view of the offerings and service levels of the various HR suppliers. Using the crowd versus vendor paid research of a single analyst is an exciting way to give buyers a transparent view of alternative suppliers and real customer adoption.”

This enhanced guide offers the most extensive listing of both HR suppliers (3,300+) and their respective products (4,400+) in the industry. The interactive nature of this guide allows for real-time rankings and ratings of vendors that will produce the Industry top-20 list driven by consumer feedback each quarter. HR professionals will be able to filter results to find metrics similar to theirs including the ability to sort client ratings based on company size, industry vertical, geographical scope. Suppliers of HR services are encouraged to update their product guide listing for no charge and add additional products, and service offerings to their listings at no charge. Product version tracking is also accounted for in this new system which enables vendors to show significant improvements in product lines.

“Too often innovative and up and coming suppliers such as Provade cannot get the attention of Industry Influencers without large fees. This platform gives us the ability to showcase our satisfied clients and connect potential new system buyers to existing clients. It also helps connect our clients and offer them an ability to influence future product development which helps all of our community and development cycles”, stated Freddy Vaca, SVP, Sales & Strategy Provade.

Currently this product is free of charge for both HR vendors and suppliers but HR vendors are not able to rate their own products or their own companies. Any HR professional is required to have a valid company domain name in their email to provide ratings.
