Allows you to create as many panels as you need to further refine the companies you are targeting.


Reduces effort and cost by automatically matching companies to relevant work packages without them having to search for it.


Reduces time to respond, for suppliers as their profiles already have everything they need to respond. This reduces sourcing time from 6 weeks to just one day.


Protects your proprietary information by only showing information to the relevant companies who are capable of fulfilling it.

Case Study:

A large consulting firm managed two supplier panels each with 20 companies that supported their contingent talent requirements. One was for professional services and the other for IT services. They became frustrated at the workload of managing these two panels manually with emails and phone calls. Bringing the panels into BenchOn, they were not only able to digitise these panels but also easily create more in other areas. They created additional panels for Logistics and Engineering to meet their specialist requirements for upcoming programs. This greatly reduced sourcing workload for Resourcing teams and provided a stable and efficient panel system that improved their available talent pool.

Will the preferred suppliers be able to see all of our Assignments?

This is not a jobs board. With BenchOn, businesses only see what is specifically matched to their company profile if you allocate the assignment to their supplier panel. You now have greater sourcing privacy by controlling who sees your information and when.

Do suppliers have to pay to join BenchOn and my Supplier Panel?

No, BenchOn is free to join and there is no cost for the companies that join your supplier panel. This is a subscription service so you can send as many jobs as you like to your supplier panels with no commissions attached. This is the most cost effective way to resource your projects.

How do I know that my information is secure after I release it to a supplier?

All companies on the BenchOn platform agree to our standard platform Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). This protects the information you upload to the platform and what you receive through the platform. All businesses are bound to only use the information for the purpose for which it was intended.
