SAP Gains Total Visibility into its Flexible Workforce through the Fieldglass Vendor Management System (VMS)

Fieldglass Provides a Highly Integrated Cloud Solution for Complete Transparency

Chicago - September 14, 2015

Fieldglass, Inc., an SAP company and the global cloud technology leader in external workforce management, is now deployed at SAP SE (NYSE: SAP), providing an end-to-end process to manage its global contingent labor and services spend. SAP will use Fieldglass as a centralized, single point of access to engage with more than 20,000 external workers via multiple service providers and global partners.

“Now with Fieldglass, we have an integrated, secure and compliant process alongside SAP ERP and Ariba,” said Amy Gordon, Global Head of External Workforce Center, SAP. “We have been able to accomplish two very important things: transparency into our external workers and alignment of that workforce to our overall company strategy.”

The Fieldglass Vendor Management System (VMS) has allowed SAP to:

  • Streamline the process to find and engage qualified workers
  • Enable reporting and reconciliation of work hours performed
  • Gain visibility into external workforce headcount as well as contingent spend and rates by location
  • Automate supplier invoicing
  • Mitigate risk through background security and compliance checks

Fieldglass is currently being deployed in a phased approach across SAP’s external labor program across the U.S., Canada and Germany. When complete, it will be used to manage all temporary workers and Statement of Work (SOW)-based services and request for RFx — such as information, proposal, quote or bid — globally. Identity management across SAP’s global contingent workforce will also be managed within Fieldglass.
