Agile•1 Joins Forces with Brightfield Strategies to Bring Contingent Workforce Data to a New Level

TORRANCE, CA, May 24, 2016Agile-1, a global workforce management solutions company, is proud to announce its new, strategic partnership with Brightfield Strategies, an independent workforce consultancy and creators of Talent Data Exchange (TDX). TDX is a membership-based data analytics service and platform that will allow Agile-1 customers to gain strategic insight into their contingent workforce programs, spending behavior, and how they compare against the total market. "We are thrilled to be able to offer our customers the greatest possible insight into their global workforce analytics,” stated Stacie Habegger, Agile-1 Chief Sales Officer.

TDX aggregates contingent workforce data contributed by members comprised of Fortune 10 to Global 2000 companies across more than 20 industries. Once the data has gone through a rigorous vetting process for quality and anonymity, members are able to leverage the information to more accurately define, test and refine their workforce strategies.“Giving Agile-1 customers access to our natural language processing tools to precisely compute and benchmark their workforce costs and make fact-based decisions is our goal,” remarked Christopher Minnick, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Brightfield Strategies. 

“Agile-1 is dedicated to the progression and maturation of our MSP programs and Brightfield's TDX is perfectly aligned to enhance the output of our AccelerationVMSTM. This partnership will provide innovative solutions for our customers," added Habegger. Access to TDX allows for greater depth of insight into the true nature of the work that needs to be performed rather than relying on vague job titles. This visibility takes a new approach to addressing the challenges of benchmarking contingent workforce data by skill, industry and geography. Another key differentiator to this membership is the opportunity to benchmark and identify trend data against the true market; customers are no longer limited to benchmarking data solely from their VMS provider. This holistic view of information will take total workforce data analytics to a new level.

“Over the years we have built and nurtured an ongoing relationship with Brightfield Strategies,” said Peter Carvalho, President of Agile-1. “Integrating the TDX tool into our workforce programs and technology is the next step in the evolution of our total talent solutions and strengthening our relationships with Brightfield Strategies and our customers.”
