Masis is about offering clients a comprehensive solution to their staffing needs. You’re getting more than just a handful of faceless resumes. We specialize in the entire talent management process from procurement of staff, to timekeeping, payroll and invoicing. We can manage multiple team projects and coordinate across multiple vendors as the lead staffing partner in a Master Service Provider capacity. With our proprietary software we can provide comprehensive reporting on spend by headcount, department or profile, and offer access to timesheet approvals and other transparencies on costs. We have alternative billing solutions to create pricing efficiencies that motivate our staff, while creating cost transparency for you. And we bring to all of this the experience and know how of working with a variety of clients, across a myriad of industries and skill sets, learning to modify our processes for each situation.
Our clients come to us for customized staffing solutions.
They come to us because we know how to find solutions to tough problems, and we’re great at it (if we say so ourselves), which means our clients can get back to being great at what they do, too. Doesn’t that seem like a win-win for everybody? We think so.
Our comprehensive solutions include:
Cost-Per-Unit (CPU) Engineered Partnership
We have designed innovative ways that can save our clients on labor spend, increase productivity and motivate staff.
Master Service Providers (MSP)
We offer clients the ability to remove themselves from the staffing day-to-day process by overseeing all aspects of large team solutions. As a national partner we can:
Vendor Management Solutions (VMS)
Our Vendor Management Solutions (VMS) are best in class – putting in place controls on spend, ensuring compliance, and providing comprehensive financial reporting capability across multiple vendors. Our VMS tool offers personalized dashboards, a full suite of standard reports and highly customizable modules. Benefits include:
Our Talent Areas
Our clients range from light industrial to professional services. And that’s ok, because so do our people. Your typical staffing firm offers a few types of “temps” in just one or two fields. We’re not typical, and we don’t want to be. We’ve grown to accommodate the wide breadth of clients we serve. So whether you need someone who can pick and pack produce, file and sort medical bills, or operate a forklift, we’re able to help . . . plus we have the receptionist to answer the phone. We’re proud of our full suite of talent, particularly our team’s strength in:
What our team does today is too long to articulate an exhaustive list, so we encourage clients to call for details to discuss their needs. CLICK HERE TO CONTACT DANIEL SCOTT FOR MORE INFORMATION.
