Sirenum Selected for G-Cloud 9

London-based company is the only workforce management platform built for staffing on the GOV.UK Digital Marketplace.

Sirenum, the leading global provider of cloud-based workforce management technology to temporary staffing agencies, is G-Cloudproud to announce its onward availability on the UK Government G-Cloud Framework, version 9 (G9). This follows Sirenum’s previous G-Cloud 8 approval, a sign of the company’s commitment to driving improved staff management within the public sector and to the businesses serving the UK government.

Sirenum’s software-as-a-service solution will be available on this platform to every public sector organization, including agencies and arm’s length bodies. Public sector organizations and the agencies that serve them can now use the Digital Marketplace to sign agreements with Sirenum.

This development is key to Sirenum’s plans for expansion into the public sector. The software platform was already available to the private sector through other similar channels such as the Salesforce AppExchange and Sage Marketplace.

Sirenum helps public sector oganisations and the agencies that serve them easily manage their dynamic workforce, the hourly and mobile workers crucial to operational efficiency. This may include workers like doctors and nurses, engineers, or even cleaners and catering staff. Adopting Sirenum means transforming the way public sector organisations and the agencies that serve them connect with employees. This drives significant savings for these organisations while increasing their ability to handle changes in their own workforce, a common challenge in the public sector.

About Sirenum: Sirenum is powering the dynamic workforce. As the leading global provider of cloud-based workforce management technology to temporary staffing agencies, Sirenum provides transformational technology to innovative companies, streamlining the management of thousands of workers across the UK, Europe, and the USA, including organisations in the government, transport and logistics, care, and security and events verticals.

An Open Letter to Ops Teams at Recruiting Agencies

Hey ops teams at recruiting agencies, speak up!

Ops team complaining with megaphone

Too often, we visit recruiting agencies looking to transform their businesses without input from their operations professionals. It’s kind of mind boggling. And we know that you are frustrated. In just the last two weeks, three (!) times, we have had meetings with IT executives at large agencies who came to the table without a clue of what their ops teams were really burdened by. We have tried to convince these CTOs, CIOs, and others that a better ATS is only fixing part of the problem. But they are slow to pick it up and too often fail to properly reach out to constituents on the operations side of the house, taking the front-end recruitment and commercial teams for their word that their requirements are the only components to an IT-driven business transformation project.

So here’s our advice to ops teams: raise up and make yourself heard. Your day-to-day struggles with overburdened scheduling spreadsheets, clunky time-and-attendance capture, and inefficient payroll and invoicing processes need to be shared with your senior leadership. The good news is that we’ve found that once we can get you to the table, IT takes your concerns seriously. The bad news is that it takes too long to get you to the table if you don’t speak up for yourself. So grab that megaphone (or IT suggestion email inbox) and tell them what you need!
