VMS Firms - Top Players
The top four Vendor Management System (VMS) companies in the US based on revenue include Workforce Logiq, CDI Corp, DCR Workforce, and MSX international. Additional information on the companies (including their website) have been entered into rows 3 – 7, columns A — D of the attached spreadsheet.
In our efforts to find the information on the top VMS companies in terms of market share or revenue, we began by scouring through industry publications to locate any preexisting lists. While we found some pre-compiled lists from sources like Allegis Global Solutions, Capterra and Staffing Industry, the quantifiable metrics (such as revenue or market share) used to rank the VMS companies was not immediately clear
Following the limitations of the initial strategy, we switched gears to research the top companies by market share by reviewing market research reports and articles such as published by Grand View Research and Technavio among others, and press release sites like BusinessWire, GlobeNewswire, etc. While information was available on one or two companies' market shares, it was not possible to take them further in absence of an exhaustive list of companies having the same information.
In the absence of this information (revenue or direct market share for the overall VMS market size in the US), we continued with our search in third-party websites and luckily found a 2015 report by SIA which ranked 23 VMS companies in terms of their share in VMS spending (provider) in the US. Even though the source was outdated (older than two years), it provided useful insights and provided an extensive set of 23 VMS companies. We used the list to find the current revenues for each of the companies utilizing company profile websites like Hoovers, ZoomInfo, and CrunchBase that often provide the latest available revenue.
We were able to determine the revenues of all the companies except for PiLOTT which had no publicly available information on its financials. Excluding Fieldgrass, we compare the revenues of the remaining 22 companies and arrived at the top four in terms of revenue as follows;
1. Workforce Logiq — $2823.12 Million
2. CDI Corp -$864.37 Million
3. DCR Workforce -$702.08 Million
4. MSX international -$ 527.04 Million
Finally, we visited each of the identified companies' website sand LinkedIn profiles to find additional information required to meet the criteria of the research fully. For reference, we have attached as part of this report, the various sources showing revenues of all the 22 VMS companies compared.
