Demand for Industry's Only Vendor Management System (VMS) Powered by Oracle Propels Provade to Record Number of Deployments in 2010

SAN MATEO, Calif., Jan. 11, 2011 – Leveraging an integrated Oracle architecture, Provade Inc. announced today it has implemented a record number of Vendor Management System (VMS) installations in 2010. This is the second straight year the company, whose web-based technology helps businesses manage their contingent workforce and outside services spend, has doubled its annual number of deployments and revenue.

Offering the industry’s only enterprise-class VMS, Silicon Valley-based Provade deployed its software to 12 companies this year, bringing its total number of clients to 47 businesses in 40 countries. Today, more than $2 billion in contingent labor and statement of work (SOW) spend runs through Provade’s platform.

Tibor Beles, Vice President of Business Process Outsourcing at Oracle, said, “Provade offers a unique VMS solution built on Oracle’s enterprise platform, that meets a growing market demand for VMS services.  Combining Provade’s process expertise and services with Oracle’s proven enterprise applications in a subscription model makes Provade’s solution a strong VMS offering.”

Provade VMS represents a particularly powerful tool for companies with global operations, offering the ability to handle multi-language and multi-currency transactions and provide up-to-date tax and regulatory information for dozens of countries.

“Provade’s relationship with Oracle has been a key factor in helping us achieve another record year,” said Provade President and CEO Edward Jackson. “We are seeing a lot of interest from companies that recognize the importance of an enterprise-class VMS solution that leverages existing procurement, human resources, and financial systems.”
