Fieldglass (now part of SAP) is one of the leading vendor management systems (VMS) in the market. The firm has been a long-time player (since 1999) in automating contingent labor management and has more recently shored up its support for broader statement of work (SOW)-based services beyond just independent contractors.
This broader footprint is critical as Fieldglass becomes the de facto services procurement mini-suite within the SAP application portfolio — filling a services procurement gap within the Ariba suite as well. Although it'd be easy to say the solution is best suited to just an SAP-centric company, Fieldglass has shown the ability to integrate to any back-office environment and also to work with numerous managed service providers (MSP) that rely on Fieldglass.
We continue to view Fieldglass as one of the leading best-of-breed solutions, even though it's owned by SAP, and we hope it retains its nimbleness and value going forward. (As with all acquired organizations, we also recommend negotiating pricing escalation clauses to set caps on future price increases under either buyer- or supplier-funded program models.)
