ABOUT US

making work simpler
and more effective.

Traditional VMS technology is transactional.
VNDLY’s technology is interactional.

VNDLY’s friendly yet sophisticated, powerful technology platform provides effective management of every client’s nonemployee workforce program. Informed by e-commerce design principles, our modern, cloud-based solution is easily configured and intuitive—something you won’t find with legacy software.
We engineered built-in API integrations, which allow VNDLY to seamlessly communicate with leading human resources, procurement, provisioning, finance, and employee management software—often through a single entry point. That way, our clients can effortlessly share data and other necessary information across departments, truly unifying their technology stacks. And we bring together everyone involved in the process, including managed services providers, suppliers, and workers.
What we care about most is making work simpler and more effective for every user. By creating the industry’s easiest-to-use and configure vendor management platform coupled with impeccable customer support, we help others achieve by taking the pain out of what is often complex.

VISION

VNDLY will be the world’s friendliest, simplest, and most client-centric enterprise software company.

MISSION

Our mission is to manage the world’s extended workforce with our innovative technology, intuitive experiences, and positive personal interactions.

the VNDLY way.

More than just words, our values guide everything we do—these principles are how we act, think, and make better decisions for our clients, partners, and employees. We want everyone we interact with to understand exactly who we are.

Serve Customers like Family

Customer service is critical to our mission. Open, honest conversations and constant interactions with our customers help build trust and value. Trust is critical to customer satisfaction. This is a key sustainable competitive advantage for us.

Build and Nurture a Winning Culture

This is not the responsibility of the HR team or the executive team but every single VNDLY colleague.

Focus on Software Craftsmanship

We will always drive a technology-first culture and approach. We truly believe writing great software is an art form and software development is a craft that needs to be honed over time. At VNDLY, we endeavor to be the preferred employer for anyone interested in practicing this craft. We care deeply about a software development culture and will be technology pioneers in every product line we own and operate. Sharing best practices with competitors is cool, not treason.

Frugality Is Key to Our Culture

Every dollar spent needs to bring customer delight or colleague delight. Every VNDLY colleague is a steward of company money. We treat our colleagues with respect and ask that they use company funds in the same way they would their own.

Every VNDLY colleague is empowered to question actions inconsistent with our values.

He directed a diverse portfolio with hundreds of clients, thousands of employees, and hundreds of millions in revenue.
