Ron Shahani, Acro President and CEO, Recognized as a New American Leader by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has recognized Ron Shahani, Acro President and CEO, as a New American Leader for his achievements in promoting economic development and embodying business leadership.

Public Agencies Get New Access to Talent Savings Solutions

Acro USCommunities LogoGovernment and public organizations registered with U.S. Communities can now benefit from predetermined pricing and the opportunity to use Acro’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) solutions and professional staffing services without the hassle of a time-consuming and expensive formal bid process. Acro Services Corporation, a widely recognized veteran and pioneer in the staffing services industry, announced today that it has been awarded a contract through U.S. Communities, the leading government purchasing cooperative, to offer this opportunity to registered public agenices. Acro was awarded the contract, which runs January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2019, with options to renew, through a competitive solicitation and evaluation led by Maricopa County, Arizona.

Over its 35-year history, Acro has become a leader across a wide range of job categories and the entire suite of workforce management solutions, having delivered MSP programs for more than 20 years and its web-based vendor management system (VMS), the XRM System, for most of that time, all while maintaining its highly acclaimed standard of excellence in staffing services, the foundation upon which the company was built.

Acro is uniquely positioned to provide U.S. Communities participating agencies with best-in-class contingent worker management services at predetermined pricing. In particular, Acro has the acumen to cost-effectively and quickly recruit temporary workers, manage the suppliers of temporary workers, and provide the state-of-the art VMS, the XRM System, to enable these objectives. In its role as the incumbent MSP of several U.S. Communities participating agencies, Acro has been able to optimize workforce management processes by tailoring its MSP program (including VMS customization) to meet the specific needs of each participating agency regardless of its size. Acro’s MSP program provides participating agencies access to multiple staffing providers and streamlines the management of those staffing providers into one easy point of contact. As part of this, Acro’s industry-leading VMS, the XRM System, streamlines the oversight, evaluation, and analysis of multiple staffing providers through its extensive data statistics platform, real-time reporting, and integrated process support.

Participating agencies save time and money by administering staffing more efficiently, and in turn get access to higher quality talent through a recruitment process that taps into a large pool of candidates and gives workers highly competitive wages. Acro also enables agencies to fill positions utilizing talent in the local community, which gives business to local staffing suppliers that often do not have the resources to bid on government contracts.

MSP services are typically only possible for large organizations, but Acro is offering this service for all U.S. Communities participants, no matter how small. “Acro is known across the staffing industry for its exceptional customer service,” said Ron Shahani, President and CEO of Acro Service Corp. “More than 80 percent of Fortune 500 companies use managed staffing programs, and now more public sector organizations can get the benefit of optimized staffing solutions. This is an exciting program that will provide significant value and cost savings to public sector organizations, while enabling them to meet all of their security, reporting, and transparency requirements.”
