Company snapshot: IQNavigator provides software and services that help companies manage their extended work force and procured services in a smarter way - putting the emphasis on "IQ" by giving companies powerful insight into and control over the way they source services and utilize their extensive nonemployee workforce.
Notable practices: IQNavigator's first patent - the only patent in the industry - was issued in December 2008 for its match engine, which matches candidates with open opportunities based on a comprehensive set of criteria. With the release of IQNavigator's cross-client benchmarking capabilities last October, client programs are able to compare their results against aggregate data from IQNavigator's customer base, the largest source of aggregate data in the industry.
Community involvement: IQNavigator is an annual sponsor of The John Lynch Foundation, which provides encouragement and positive alternatives for young people. The company is also a primary sponsor of Taste of Greenwood Village supporting The Beacon Center, a nonprofit service agency in Englewood that helps youth struggling with substance abuse or mental-health issues. IQNavigator also rallies behind individual employees pursuing their cause. Examples include the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's Walk MS and the Steps-n-Strides 5K Family Run/Walk. As a sponsor at the Steps-n-Strides Walk, IQNavigator helps in benefiting the Kyle O'Connell Foundation that sheds light on pediatric brain tumors.
