Spend Matters 50/50: Fieldglass (An SAP Company) – A Provider to Know in 2015

100 companies - 100 days

"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 (MSPs) that rely on Fieldglass".

You can read more on what our US site says about Fieldglass here, whilst in Europe, the firm under SAP continues to grow in strength, with a substantial presence now in most major countries and a European Head Office in London. VMS adoption in Europe is somewhat behind the US, but is growing rapidly. It is important to note however that legislation around employment of contingent workers does vary country by country, so for international clients it is important to have a provider (like Fieldglass) who understands the nuances here.
