SAP Fieldglass Flex addresses the growing need for external labor management technology in the mid-market.

“As mid-sized enterprises continue to increase their use of flexible talent, the technology to manage these workers will play a pivotal role in their external workforce management programs,” said Christopher Dwyer, Research Director at Ardent Partners. “As this market increasingly engages with a more blended workforce, it will require technology that can enhance talent engagement, improve cost savings and maintain critical visibility."

With SAP Fieldglass Flex, multiple stakeholders throughout the organization benefit from compliance, reporting and benchmarking, standardized requisition and onboarding processes, and accurate billing and invoicing. By achieving visibility and better management of their external talent, companies can now drive ROI by finding the right mix of talent where and when they need it.
