What is Shortlister?

Shortlister is the #1 marketplace for employers and consultants to find and select providers in HR technology, wellness, and benefits space. Their algorithm takes into consideration criteria like budget, program goals, and demographics to provide a verified, comprehensive list of potential providers to clients.

Vendor Selection Criteria

Every quarter, Shortlister releases its list of “top” HR technology vendors in various categories using a wide range of criteria. They evaluate a vendor’s:

  • Company Background & Stability
  • Business Performance & Rating Data
  • Market Presence/Buzz Factor

Individual metrics for the Top Vendor awards include “Number of Clients,” “Number of Lives Covered,” “Wins vs. Losses,” and “Quality of Ratings and Reviews.” The full breakdown of the criteria used can be found on the Shortlister’s website here.

What It Means To Be A Top Vendor

Shortlister’s Top Vendors are considered best-in-class in their respective industries. When a provider receives Top Vendor recognition, it means they’ve undergone Shortlister’s rigorous evaluation process. The more quarters a company is named a Top Vendor, the more credible and valuable an asset they are.

Shortlister connects partners and end-users with companies like APS to find best-in-class vendors by taking the guesswork out of the vetting process.

APS and Shortlister

The research phase of finding a new provider can be extensive and exhaustive, whether you’re looking for your company or for a client. There’s so much to consider and so many questions to have answered, it can be hard to know where to begin. Starting the research process with a group like Shortlister can help shorten the vetting process by providing prospective clients with answers to questions in their own time through requests for proposals (RFP) in a company’s profile.

Shortlister hosts a bank of over 2,000 RFP questions that have already been answered by vendors and are kept up to date. This saves both consultants and employers time and effort creating questions and gathering answers, while also connecting them to ideal vendors who meet their needs. By joining the Shortlister network, APS has been able to help organizations when they’re searching for a payroll and HR provider.
