SAP Fieldglass

I think Fieldglass is perfect for situations in which payments are contracted out, or paid on a project-completion basis. As in our situation, its perfect to organize extra external projects that are ongoing. Dates and timelines for approval and payment are easily seen, calculated, and approved.

It would not be ideal for a regular payroll scenario as most employees would feel burdened by reporting their time on a regular basis. It would also put a unnecessary task of individual approval processing on the payer.

SAP SuccessFactors

Success Factors is really well suited to handling needs of my organization. They've done a good job integrating with our course catalog and making it easy to book courses right from within the application. It falls short in letting managers cascade their objectives easily. When I cascade an objective, the cascaded objective will often inherit comments from my own objective and share them down to my reports - not ideal behavior.

Pros

SAP Fieldglass

  • Fieldglass does a good job of displaying the jobs that are open, and allows for vendors to quickly determine the status of the jobs, the location, posting dates, and how many candidates you have submitted for each one.
  • Fieldglass does allow some filtering and search capabilities. When you get to a large number of jobs on which you are working, that is invaluable in keeping organized. Many other VMSs do not do a good job of this.
  • The submittal process, of attaching a candidate to a specific job, is fairly short and straightforward. That's important because it saves time. Many VMSs take forever to get a candidate through, and are not intuitive at all. Fieldglass is better than most in that regard.

SAP SuccessFactors

  • Assignment Profile: This is an automated way of assigning courses and activities to users (through user interface configuration or through data feed synchronization).
  • Plateau Reports Designer: A client tool to customize the reports in SAP SuccessFactors Learning, widely used by most of the large organizations.
  • BizX integration: It's a SuccessFactors Business Execution (BizX) platform to connect the talent management and human resource management. It has a comprehensive view of the organization's resources skills, expertise, experience, and competency, etc.
  • Domain, Domain Restrictions and Roles: This is mainly to create an organizational structure and to provide the needed security permissions.
  • Integration with Jam, Skype and WebEx, etc.

Cons

SAP Fieldglass

  • Not very many major releases (only 3) while other technologies are changing more often
  • Help desk is quick to close a case without providing a full detailed logical explanation (they just state something even if it doesn't make sense)
  • Admin section is confusing as a lot of configurations are "hidden" even from an Admin view
  • Employees appear overburdened therefore are not as responsive as needed (i.e. Operations Consultants)

  • The app for ios and android have room for improvement. They are aware of the limitations but amount of access and functionality is not where it needs to be.
  • The homepage of Successfactors takes longer to load and refresh itself. Especially true when viewing employee files. That is partially due to how much information is having to show on the page but it still seems to take more time than usual to show each screen.
  • You can't change the amount of time the homepage will lock you out from inactivity. This might seem minuscule but it causes so many painful re-logins and time wasting effort to login again. There currently isn't an option to change the time before lockout.

Support is still lacking. If we don't have a critical business need where we're looking to license something new, there is no partnership with SuccessFactors. Unless of course you purchase the Platinum Support which we did not. It is difficult for us to take advantage of new functionality when we have professional services fees that will be incurred as a result. We're in a tough economy and our budgets are slim. We don't have wiggle room to add $5k here or $10k there. The overall integration into a total HCM solution is also lacking.

SF has good support from SAP. It is not as good as some of the core SAP products but it's getting better. Also, there are a number of SIs that are very familiar in this space and it's easier to get external support. The tool also has support for multiple integration platforms to connect the on-prem core ERP to the cloud-based SF solution.

Alternatives Considered

SAP Fieldglass

Like I said in a previous question, we did not use a previous system before Fieldglass VMS. Our process was simply emailing a master Excel spreadsheet with a list of projects, contractors, approvers, and payments. While this worked on a small scale, our external partners and contracted jobs grew and this process became cumbersome. We saw the need to streamline our payment process and Fieldglass offered us the solution.

SAP SuccessFactors

As a whole, SuccessFactors is tough to beat. It's at its best when all of the modules are working together. There are few competitors that offer the full talent suite.Individually, the quality of the modules can vary. The performance and goal management modules perform well but the recruiting one significantly lags its competitors. The recruiting world has seen a lot of advances in technology over the last few years but these have yet to trickle down into the SuccessFactors module.

Return on Investment

SAP Fieldglass

  • I would have to say Fieldglass has made a positive impact, only in that having access to it has opened up some client relationships we didn't have before. I am a vendor to clients using Fieldglass, so I can't really report on the financial successes they may have had by implementing it.
  • The negative side to Fieldglass, or any VMS, really, from an agency perspective is that it cuts out manager contact. That has a negative impact, both to the agency and the hiring manager. No longer can the managers really explain what they need, and no longer can an agency understand the req deeply. We have to work off of a scrubbed job description which is generally pretty vanilla.

SAP SuccessFactors

  • Visibility to the organization was an immediate impact and socialized the value of the product immediately.
  • A common and aggregated performance process reduced time and energy spent on quarterly goal setting.
  • Consolidating performance to pay outputs reduced time in some manual audit processes.
