SAP Fieldglass in my organization is primarily used to manage the external workforce like contingent labor and SOW projects. The only issue which we face is in delay of the sync of the information to downstream systems.
It is also used to provide reporting to gain insight into workforce spend and utilization of the same
  • analytics and reporting
  • monitor and evaluate the performance of the service provider
  • tracks time and expenses
  • ensure compliance with legal requirements
  • reporting functionalities need to have more graph representation
  • gen ai should be introduced in the tracking of expenses
  • lack of interactive new age UI
it is well suited to do external vendor management and manage activities related to it.
It is not that great in the process of sourcing and long chain of approvals. Also, it is not that great with managing RBAC and external notifications. Multiple times systems have latency which are very unusual

We use it as a client portal for checking new positions or updates about any position like interviews or job offers or any other relevant updates, also for the onboarding checks and timesheets purpose, although there is a separate team for this
  • Job Details
  • interview details
  • timesheet details
  • updates on any opened or closed reqs
  • there could be an option to submit candidate on multiple relevant reqs at the same time
  • it shows "potential match" error even when candidate is not submitted already, because of any previous submittal of that candidate on any other req
  • there should be a compulsion for the hiring managers or coordinators to provide a reason while rejecting any candidate
It is a precise tool that could be used for multiple clients to manage the job opening and its updates or any thing that is related to a submitted candidate

It is a really efficient system for managing out recruitment cycle and we are Using a VMS (Vendor Management System) to centralize applicant tracking and job management can definitely streamline processes and keep everything organized. SAP Fieldglass is amazing for real-time communication and notifications adds another layer of efficiency and the effectiveness is very real, ensuring that everyone involved stays informed and up-to-date. Refining these processes over time can lead to even greater effectiveness in managing our recruitment operations and it is very user friendly.
  • ATS
  • VMS
  • Interview Tracking
  • Job dashboards
  • reporting
  • reports dashboards
  • proper reports scheduling

We use SAP Fieldglass for our internal use to manage the contingent workforce for our clients
  • Onboarding process
  • invoice and payment
  • financial management
  • Job Requisition
  • Navigation can be easy
  • provide some customize options
  • Sometimes data sync issue
It is really helpful to manage large contingent workforce, especially when we have limited slot so that we can submit a right candidate for the high-volume jobs

also, a robust compliance to manage the multiple vendors at a same time to avoid any favoritism which including financial tracking and reporting which includes timesheet.

We use SAP Fieldglass for contractor timewriting and cost center allocations.
  • Time approvals for contractors
  • Exception time
  • Routing approvals
  • It was hard to locate where to change the cost center for contractors to split their time to two different projects.
  • Warn if I missed approving a timesheet in the past which is not in the range of the timeframe filter.
Great for contractor time writing and approvals.

The implementation of the solution and dependencies with S4 have created significant challenges with the solution. we have seen data duplication at high amounts.
  • user interface seems solid
  • Data management
  • support and usability
I think the challenges we have is that the team implementing with SAP allowed to many customizations which created a complexity that make the product hard to use and creates failures across the product set.

I've used Fieldglass to help with invoices in the past, and I appreciate how simple and logically the programme is laid out. I had to contact support, and they were helpful in answering my inquiries.
  • Has all procurement details
  • Intuitive design
  • Streamlining contingent workforce management
  • Very costly
  • Support from Fieldglass team could have been better.
  • Some issues faced during third party integrations
Using a single dashboard, we can manage both workers and contractors thanks to this cloud-based vendor management solution. We can efficiently manage purchasing, invoice production, and payments thanks to the centralised platform. The ability to manage the time and expenses of temporary staff is one of SAP Fieldglass' finest capabilities, along with its assistance in vendor and expense management. It also offers beneficial analytics and reporting features that give us cost information. The technology has proven to be quite beneficial for our business because it helps with compliance management with regard to things like pay and labour rules, among other things. Overall, SAP Fieldglass is an essential tool for companies trying to enhance their management of contingent workers.

I am a user that is in the tool every single day. We currently use Fieldglass to manage our contingent workforce of over 18,000 employees. One big issue we face is pricing/rate visibility and Fieldglass allows total transparency between our suppliers to know we are getting the market value while also displaying market trends. On top of this, SAP is always ahead of the game with KPIs and investing in the new and improved technology which we then reap the benefits of in our system after big releases and software updates.
  • Pricing Visibility
  • Market trends
  • Technology upgrades
  • Improved connector descriptions
  • More educational opportunities for quick info
I have some limited experience with other VMS tools and still will prefer Fieldglass over the others. It's user friendly and more integrated with the various other systems we use. SAP gives a level of visibility and user experience that is second to none. They invest in their tool and it shows.

Contingent labour
  • Time sheet approvals for contractors
  • Inventory of externals reporting to managers
  • User experience is dated
  • Records/Fields can be confusing
  • Limited on-boarding capabilities
Perfect for time sheet approvals, also via mobile/email
User interface is not so good

Hire external consultant and monitor contract for external consultants. Fieldglass also allow us to connect with our approved partners and promote job posting through partners. It tracks all candidates and salary position. It also has approval for job posting along with interview scheduling. Candidates can be screened and interview can be setup using Fieldglass
  • interview scheduling
  • approval
  • candidate screening
  • job posting
  • candidate overview
  • overall search
Appropriate for contractors and not linked to company HR system for FT as it is not connected with HR. External Contractors can be easily setup and screened as it has data base of all the approved supplier. It can post the job to all the supplier in one go. It can also scan all candidates at same time.

I use SAP Fieldglass to approve contractor's timesheet. It is also used for hiring contractors and also renew their contract. It is integrated with SAP Finance and Budget module
  • It is simplifies contractor's hiring process.
  • It is makes it very easy for contractor to enter their timesheet and for manager to approve it.
  • It is seamlessly integrated with SAP.
  • If manager does not review contractor's contract in time, Manager has to create a new request.
It is best suited to manage contractor's recruitment and their timesheet.

SAP Fieldglass has been a great tool to centralize Contingent Labor strategy by unlocking visibility, savings, and risk mitigation opportunities. It also seamless plugs in to the broader SAP ecosystem creating and beyond helping harness data across multiple functions to enable the business to make more strategic decisions and a macro & granular level visibility into multiple practice areas.
  • Data centralization
  • Clean user interface
  • Enables process efficiencies
SAP Fieldglass is the perfect fit where a customer has a decentralized contingent labor process. That paired with the presence of SAP within the organization makes it a seamless decision for the broader enterprise. Given that FG is a mature player in this sector, it makes sense if there is a certain spend threshold in place when it comes to reliance on Contingent Labor resources.

We utilize Fieldglass as the end to end solution for managing the contingent workforce. This has streamlined our process dramatically and automated where it was previously manual.
  • Automation
  • End to End Contingent Worker Tracking
  • Invoice Management
  • Reporting. There is a massive amount of room for improvement
  • The support needs improvement as well as organizational knowledge, which much as left SAP
It is very well suited for a gen one program that didn't have a program in place previously and lacking automation. it is excellent for automation and streamlining of the process.

We use Fieldglass for contractors. In my personal experience i think the standard reporting for timebooking can be improved. Also, for job opportunities - the user experience to communicate to multiple vendors can be improved. it's a great platform overall.
  • time booking approval
  • revising existing contract
  • job opportunities
  • timebooking report-free date range
  • interaction with vendors for new opportunity

Fieldglass SAP keeps our travel assignment shifts easily assessable and when there is an issue easy to dispute, the software is easy to use. It helps to facilitate the billing for two parties in a third party system. It has everything we need in one spot. It’s super fast and laid out the way we would want it to be.
  • Ease of use
  • Speed of use
  • Detail layout
  • Design
  • Nothing it’s perfect
  • Notifications are even on par!
Third party staffing, healthcare travel staffing. Payroll, Invoicing side needs of the process. Best suited for travel nurse assignments. Less appropriate would be anything outside of staffing.

Fieldglass is used for contingent workers. We use the CPI version. With Asapio coming into the picture it has made the process very efficient. Our contingent workers log time and expense through FG. It has made hiring and assigning work to the group pretty easier to manage. HR teams are very happy with the product and its support.
  • Time Entry
  • Expenses
  • Cost Object Integration
  • Performance is slow at times
  • Support needs to improve a lot
  • Automation is tough
It is best suited for contingent workers
