Drive profitable growth with latest version of Vanquish
Organisations can execute more profitable contracts with the latest release of leading edge workforce management solution Vanquish, which was developed in collaboration with leading contractors from the construction, facilities management and contract cleaning industries.
Vanquish builds on the success of previous releases but now incorporates a range of new functionalities to streamline and simplify the contract management process. Powerful and easy to use, it provides the tools and insightful analytics contractors need to contract costs whilst delivering the highest standards of customer service.
In service industries constrained by tight margins, accurate rostering and robust cost control is critical to building a profitable portfolio. Vanquish brings together key contract-related tasks in a single, centrally managed system hosted in the cloud, including staff scheduling, time and attendance, HR, absence management, reporting, billing and payroll.
By consolidating critical contract information in a single repository, managers can gain a holistic view of the business and make better informed business decisions to deliver operational excellence and maximise profitability.
For example, they can identify the right number of hours needed to fulfil each contract and allocate best fit workers to each contract according to their availability and skill set.
Enhanced visibility of what's happening at site level enables contractors to calculate the 'actual' hours and assigned tasks carried out by staff with greater precision so they can gain a true understanding of service delivery costs.
Managers can also carry out a Contract versus Profitability analysis and continually assess projected labour costs against what was budgeted for, to identify the profitability of each contract.
Secure customer web portals enable contractors to deliver a more accountable service by clearly demonstrating to customers what work has been carried out.
Vanquish interfaces seamlessly with popular third party systems, enabling contractors to benefit from a true automated and paperless end-to-end solution tailored to their business.
"The latest version release of Vanquish demonstrates how we take on board our customers' feedback to continually enhance its functionality and increase the value they obtain from the system," says Christian Berenger, operations director at Vanquish Integrated People Solutions.
"With contractors continuing to see their operating margins squeezed by rising labour costs and intense competition, effective rostering is critical to boosting the profitability of contracts. Over-servicing contracts by deploying too many staff will soon wipe away any profit margin, putting the bottom line at risk, while understaffing can impact service delivery.
"Vanquish solves a critical need of contractors to adequately fulfil each contract and gain a true understanding of the cost of service delivery.
"With powerful analytics at their fingertips, managers can evaluate the profitability of individual contracts, better plan and allocate staff resource, and build margins into new business opportunities to achieve profitable growth."
