I wanted to let you know that we selected (PEO) as our vendor. I appreciate your help and will certainly recommend StaffMarket to anyone who is going through the selection process. You all kept it to a very managable number of vendors, while providing a good selection to company. I appreciated that everyone who contacted me was able to provide for our needs and I did not waste time with anyone who would not be able to help us ultimately.
Please let me know if you need any additional information from me.
Thank you Chris. Sorry to be such a hard ass at the beginning. Attached is a reference:
I used Staffmarket.com on behalf of a client because we were very dissatisfied with a national vendor’s take it or leave it attitude and indecipherable pricing. While the service was good, the price seemed high. I was mistrustful of Staffmarket.com at the beginning because I did not want to get badgered by unqualified vendors or lots of sales people and because I knew the big names and what they offered. I went ahead because I did not know whether smaller vendors could provide similar service. Stafflmarket.com delivered several qualified and responsive vendors and we selected one that offers very personal service, explained in great detail exactly what each part of our charges paid for, had great references in our area, and saves us over $1000 per year per employee.

Good Morning, Via your RFP process we have selected (PEO) as our new service provider. Thanks to your help we were able to effectively and expeditiously narrow down the various solution providers to a final three and ultimately determined (PEO) offered the greatest value benefit by molding their expertise around our company's individualized needs. I would certainly champion both StaffMarket and (PEO's) needs based results to potential future prospects Thank you again for your service and we look anxiously forward to beginning our new long term relationship with (PEO).

I just want to share with you how much I appreciate your assistance in our selection of for our payroll and HR/Benefits administration. I was so fortunate to find your website when I was doing a search for ASO vendors. You did an excellent job in assessing my needs and recommending two possible vendors. Your recommendation of was right on the mark. You were also so helpful to me as I went through the RFP process and was trying to decide among five vendors by providing information on the other companies.
We are having our implementation kick-off meeting with this afternoon and we are so excited to be partnering with them.
Thank you again!

Subject: StaffMarket RFP for PEO services
One of the main reasons we chose (PEO) was price. They broke out all the charges, where all the others lumped the fee into one large percentage of payrolls. It was difficult to calculate the true cost or even what the PEO fee was when there was only one percentage number to work with.
Also, they were very easy to work with and did a great job explaining the PEO setup to a novice like myself. They are a large company that can handle our national needs and have handled themselves VERY professionally. Overall they were the best fit for us.
As for Staffmarket.....I know there is NO WAY I could have received as many good quality quotes from so many companies if it was not for your services. In fact, before I stumbled on your site, I was endlessly searching from one PEO company to another without much success. Your company made it possible. I would be glad to send a formal letter or better yet feel free to give out my name and number as a very satisfied client.
Let me know if there is anything else. Once again Matt, thanks for all your help in getting this off the ground.

I signed a contract with (PEO) today. We are scheduled to start up in June. We'll be doing the employee orientation around the middle of May. Thank you for all your help.

Subject: StaffMarket PEO Response
The information that you all provide in such a timely manner is extremely helpful to me. It is very detailed and allows me the opportunity to view exactly what criteria I find important to meet our needs as a company. As I was just searching through the extremely LONG list of PEO's that are out there, it is hard to distinguish by their websites what exactly they do offer. I hate to admit it but I honestly don't have time nor do I really care to talk to all of the individual reps from each of the companies and have them continually calling and competing for our business. Staff Market allows me to "view" what the PEO's have to offer.
Thanks so much. ...It is fun to see what exactly each of these PEO's can provide. I love this service you all offer. It is helping me TREMENDOUSLY!

Two weeks ago my company made an immediate decision to look for another PEO. Immediately I did a search through the internet and found StaffMarket. I completed the RFP in about 35mins and submitted it. Within about 1 hour I received a call from StaffMarket's representative to discuss our needs more completely. The next thing I knew there were emails from various PEO's matching our needs that had responded. As I went through each of the companys online web pages, discussed the RFP with their sales representatives, and received quotes/proposals from my the three top choices, we hope that we have selected an outstanding provider to partnership with (our company). I highly recommend using StaffMarket, they made my job and my companies selection process for a new PEO a breeze.

Subject: Re: Thanks For Using StaffMarket
Matt: As you know, I was searching for a PEO that would be able to provide quality benefits and services to the Company. However, due to the small number of employees for this start-up firm, it would have been exceeding difficult, if even possible, to get the attention of many PEOs who are far more interested in partnering with larger firms. The refinement of the list of firms provided by StaffMarket enabled us to work with and select a firm that best met the Company's needs. The PEO we finally selected may not even have come to our attention, had we focused on more widely advertised options, none of whom would have offered the variety of benefits and services we were able to engage with (PEO). Working with (PEO consultant) was a pleasure. She displayed an eagerness to assist us in an extremely responsive and professional manner. I would not hesitate recommending both StaffMarket and (PEO). Thank you for making it all come together.

... I just wanted to remark that the service that StaffMarket provides is truly outstanding. I had no prior knowledge of the PEO field and StaffMarket took all of the guess work out of the general search and significantly reduced my time on the project. Thank you again and I trust you will communicate our decision to the PEO's involved.
From: Wendy Sirowich Subject: Re: (PEO)
I have spoken with an met a lot of PEO's within the last week and have just signed our service agreement with (PEO) today. They were very prompt with a proposal, followed up with phone calls and a site visit, answered all the questions that I had and when asked, provided me with a list of references which I called and all were positive. The Account Executive we dealt with was XXX. Thank you for your help and I am looking forward to a long a prosperous relationship with (PEO). I will gladly recommend your organization to colleagues.

I have heard from all of them and am meeting with the last one tomorrow. It has been an eye-opener. Thanks for your help, I was surprised with the number of responses. You have a great service.
Subject: RE: PEO Selection
We selected XXXX for a number of reasons: pricing, services, synergies with 401k provider. I will tell you that I was very impressed with StaffMarket. The concept is excellent. The web interface is excellent, especially the anonymous bidding and control over releasing our contact info. I'm hoping we don't have to go through this process again anytime soon, but if we do, I would recommend using StaffMarket again. Let me know if you have any other questions or if there's anything I need to do to "wrap up" the process on your side.

Sorry it took so long to get back, been dealing with filling out all these forms all day! We are hoping we can get everything in place by June 1st. This is great. We saved about $28,000 a year on the medical alone, AND now we get dental and vision (not to mention the access to pet insurance), which we didn't have before, so we are really excited. All of the employees are really happy to have different health plans to choose from as well, so this is great! Thank you so much!

I want to thank you again for your services. Starting out isn't easy. I have tried to find companies and insurance on my own, but being a brand new business many of our inquiries have been ignored. It is nice having a company like StaffMarket to take us seriously and assist us in finding other companies to provide us with the support we need to get up and running.

Thank you for coming to the rescue of iMed. Your quick response, and that of some of the PEO's that you put me in contact with, has allowed us select XXXX as a excellent fit for iMed's needs.
