Digital Partner Network for SAP® Fieldglass® Solutions Expands in Response to Growth of External Workforce

SAP Fieldglass has leveraged its open platform to create the Digital Partner Network for SAP Fieldglass Solutions.

Chicago - October 1, 2018

 

SAP SE (NYSE:SAP) today announced that four additional online services providers have joined the Digital Partner Network for SAP® Fieldglass® solutions, giving customers more immediate access to resources supporting recruitment and management of their external workforce. 

The new partners include Toptal, Trusted Health, First Advantage and TalentWave. They expand the array of digital capabilities available to SAP Fieldglass customers, from providing quicker access to talent with specialized skills to other services such as background checks, certification verification and payroll processes. This provides SAP Fieldglass customers with greater agility and efficiency to find, engage and manage non-payroll workers and service providers to work across their enterprises. 

This flexible labor force accounts for roughly 44 percent of businesses’ workforce spend, according to the SAP Fieldglass report External Workforce Insights 2018: The Forces Reshaping How Work Gets Done. With the significance and expected growth of the external workforce, on-demand, online marketplaces are becoming increasingly important sources of talent, with 38 percent of executives using these marketplaces today and 74 percent planning to in three years. 

Maarten Hansson, global head of Workforce Strategy at Philips, a technology company in Amsterdam, observed: “On-demand talent platforms are great innovations we can use to improve business results. They perform best when digitally integrated with a solution, such as the digital partner network, to realize the value of an on-demand service coupled with the visibility and automation that a cloud solution can deliver to support a total workforce strategy.”

“We continue to expand our network of online providers to give customers more options to scale and manage their external workforce,” said Arun Srinivasan, senior vice president, SAP Fieldglass. “With 62 percent of executives saying that their external workforce improves their overall financial performance, the better they engage and manage this critical resource, the more value they can realize.”

The broader digital network connects companies to a growing number of emerging online providers across every part of an organization’s external talent management and services procurement processes.
