Beeline is being used by our recruitment team and it has helped in making the hiring and time-sheets process simple. The representative assigned to us very helpful. You also get to know the feedback on the candidates shared or whether interested in interviewing. You just have to keep an eye on the notifications and rest will flow smoothly.
  • Helps in managing the time-sheet approvals.
  • Helps in checking and responding back to the interview schedules.
  • The system is easy to navigate through the options available.
  • The reporting functions can sometimes be confusing.
  • No mobile app, yet.
  • You have to wait until you get the notification on what actions are to be completed.
If you want a VMS that will suit your recruitment process, time-sheet process, etc, this is a great platform. The representatives will always be there to help you in coordinating interviews, updating the status of candidature, and feedback.

I used Beeline VMS for 2 years to manage subcontractor professional services. I am not fond of the software. It is hard to use, confusing and does not provide direct information. You have to search for common options, like managing changes or requests, or go through many pages to find it. I am a software professional and received multiple trainings, so when I say it is difficult to use I am not saying it lightly. The features on paper are good but the implementation is horrible and reduces efficiency dealing with suppliers and subcontractors.
  • Created an automated process to hire a contractor.
  • Provide more information on active requests.
  • Provide more information on the consultant's time sheet to know which job they are charging for.
  • Better menu and easier navigation.
It can handle subcontractors but in a very difficult and inefficient manner

We use Beeline to support one of our major clients. All of our offices are using it for this major client.
  • Quick and easy to use
  • Excellent full cycle program
  • Not useful for small clients
  • Support is lacking
Excellent for large programs to manage and support multiple LOBs and multiple vendors.

We use Beeline to access open contract roles with Amazon, Alaska Airlines and Microsoft. We have an Amazon team that uses it exclusively to access Amazon Beeline and requests. I personally supervise the system for all corporate accounts, but also use it and administer Alaska Airlines and Microsoft. I am the only one who uses it for the last two.

The biggest challenge is usability and efficiency. Submitting to multiple requests at the same time is not possible, and especially for Amazon that is a big issue. When there are 10-30 open Recruiter roles and one candidate can be sent to all, it takes a lot of time to individually submit. Reporting is not always super intuitive and it would be nice if that was simplified. Especially setting parameters and criteria.
  • Sorting open requests - it's easy to set up filters and a sort order for open roles. That makes it easy to navigate.
  • Email notifications - there are plenty, but they are real time and always let us know any changes or updates immediately.
  • Reporting - should be simplified and more intuitive.
  • Submitting candidates to multiple requests.
  • Simplifying overall layout and UI would be great. Many clicks are needed to get to certain screens. For example adjusting contractor info takes a little getting used to and finding the right page in the first place.
Beeline VMS works well for high volume staffing needs.

Beeline - an average VMS

As with most VMSs, I am a vendor user of the system. One of our long time clients has implemented Beeline. I actually utilized Beeline at a previous company as well, with a different end client, and had two different experiences. It is used to streamline the vendor management process, and to get a handle on consultants used and money spent on consulting by an organization.
  • Beeline does manage job requirements and vendors. Based on what I know, it allows managers to select vendors to work on different job requirements.
  • I like that there are some ATSs out there that integrate with Beeline. I assume that Beeline has opened their API to those ATS companies and allowed the integration - when set up, it is definitely helpful to a staffing vendor.
  • Beeline, like all VMSs, allows the end client to control costs and is supposed to be vendor agnostic and allow for an even playing field between vendors.
  • I assume this might be due to the implementation of it by the end client, but the version I use now is completely un-intuitive, if that's a word. It's the opposite of intuitive. Nothing is where you think it would be, and nothing flows easily.
  • I think it needs to be simplified. The staff augmentation process isn't difficult, and I think there should be a way to make that process somewhat separate from all the HR and reporting things that go on.
Beeline does what it should, I think. It works as well as most VMSs for large corporations who have a lot of vendors and/or consultants they need to manage, and costs they need to control. I think any small to mid-size organization thinking of using Beeline should probably reconsider. It seems to me that the level of complexity and depth it offers would be much more than a small company would ever need.

Compared to other VMSs I have used....well, I'd rate it in the bottom half. It's better than some, but worse than most, in my opinion.

We use this for specific clients, this is a great tool that is easy to use. We use it for timekeeping, invoicing and reporting functions. It addresses the issues with onsite management and staffing. So the manager goes in and provides information on reqs and approves all time sheets so that the employee can get paid.
  • User-Friendly
  • Easy to use
  • Organized
  • Reporting functionality can be better
Beeline is a great tool, the functionality is fantastic. It should have the capabilities to do timesheet Integrations for staffing companies, this would help the duplication process.

Review from an MSP user

I utilized Beeline via Allegis at Amazon, using it to manage their contingent workforce. We managed bill rates, candidates, job reqs, onboarding, extensions and offboarding. Without a VMS tool, this would not be possible at that level. It was used throughout the organization, but only hiring managers and contractors used it.
  • The user interface is much better than other VMS's (ie IQNavigator).
  • Faster 'in effect' time.
  • It is easy to create reports.
  • Being able to jump into the other view points of different users is fantastic. Especially with manager timesheet approvals.
  • Actions are a long line of clicking, its hard for some to ramp because the click trail is so long, they cannot remember it for all necessary actions.
  • For our customized Beeline, we had two areas for Project/Timesheets that needed to both be completed and could create holes - and timesheets that never got to their needed approvals.
  • The search function in different areas can be very annoying.
  • An unclear way to submit "week of vacation" timesheets. This created an issue for accurate reporting of missing timesheet vs no hours worked. There is a workaround with 0's but have to comment, however the education on that was rough.
[Beeline VMS is well suited for] MSP's monitoring a contingent workforce. Could have a cheaper option for agencies to use on a sweeping basis with their clients. As some still use excel sheets and emails for contractors to submit their time. So having solutions for that level of service.

Beeline VMS was used by me and a few other individuals within our small (less than 30 employee) staffing agency. Amazon, major client of ours, uses Beeline VMS for their contingent workforce program, and was the tool they/we used for job openings, candidate submissions, and managing contractor profiles while on assignment at Amazon.
  • Requisition tracking
  • Account/user creation and management
  • Candidate submission
  • Finding existing candidates who have profiles within Beeline
  • Adding/removing/editing specific job categories to candidates - I often had to create two separate profiles for the same person when submitting them to different jobs within Beeline
  • Beeline integration with third-party Applicant Tracking Systems (such as Bullhorn ATS)
Beeline worked particularly well for tracking and submitting candidates to jobs that were currently open with our client Amazon. I also really liked that you could still see old requisitions, and the status of all your candidates for those position even though the requisition had closed. After several years' worth of requsition history, it made it an invaluable tool for our staffing agency to forecast future demand, and build a pipeline of candidates accordingly. It works well as a tool to be used by two parties- a client (such as Amazon) and a staffing agency. It's been more than 6 months since I have actually used Beeline, so I've lost touch with some of the day to day troubles, but one thing I remember was a lot of issues with its integration with our internal ATS, Bullhorn.
