Vendor management system provider Beeline agreed to acquire Utmost, a firm that specializes in providing clients with insights into their workforces, both employee and nonemployee, SIA Global Daily News reported today.

“This is a significant deal that serves to underscore how the traditional VMS and its business model are ripe for disruption,” said Matt Norton, workforce solutions research director at Staffing Industry Analysts. “Following on from Beeline’s acquisition of JoinedUp last year, this move accelerates the company’s capability to address all categories of the extended workforce.”

The Utmost acquisition will also allow smaller and midsize firms to better customer the management of their extended workforces as well as enable enterprises and partner to tailor contingent workforce management for internal divisions and new markets, according to the company.
