complete transparency of spend and usage

Visibility and transparency of spend and usage in complex services categories, such as temporary recruitment, is vitally important but often, difficult to achieve.

Comensura’s c.net technology acts as a marketplace management tool – it enables your business to interact with your recruitment agency supply chains by providing effective:
  • supply management – all recruitment agencies are procured and entered into c.net on agreed contracts, services levels and rates for the job categories they are capable of supplying
  • demand management – provides a streamlined and standardised approach for your hiring and line managers to procure services from recruitment agencies and capture timesheet information in one technology platform
  • transaction management - all transactions, such as orders and timesheets, are recorded which provides unrivalled transparency, compliance, reporting and the proven capability to consolidate accurate invoicing.
With over ten year's continuous development, our c.net technology is now available in two versions:​​​​​​​​


If your business seeks complete end-to-end management and control of the procure-to-pay process for temporary recruitment​, then c.net is for you.

A key component of our neutral vendor managed service, it provides your hiring managers with access to a wide supply chain of approved recruitment agencies. Each agency is provided an equal opportunity to supply temporary workers to your hiring managers based on a comprehensive balanced scorecard system, which is influenced by the quality of service they provide.
