I am currently using Fieldglass as an invoicing system for projects completed with third-party publishing companies. We adopted this system across the entire organization in an effort to simplify and streamline our invoicing process. Prior to this adoption, we had an inconsistent process that relied on bouncing Excel sheets back and forth from payers and payees but the Fieldglass system has modernized that process.
  • Organized statements of work show the payee which projects they are working on and which are approved for payment
  • Good accountability system that updates in real time and has organized channels of approval
  • Simple approval process brings up what items need to be reviewed and approved with a click of a button
  • Interface is a bit confusing at times and offers more than we need
  • High-learning curve for most users
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.

Fieldglass is a VMS that we, as a staffing agency, interface with for two different clients. I use it to review job postings, submit candidates, receive feedback on candidates, setup and manage interviews, and interface with the clients. Our back office folks use Fieldglass to manage invoices and billing. At this time, I'm the main user of Fieldglass from a candidate and job management standpoint, although there is certainly the possibility of use expanding to other people within our office, and others have access to the system already.
  • 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.
  • The simple display and way you navigate the jobs page is not very intuitive. There could be better information displayed than what is there, and it doesn't always make sense in how you move from one page to another.
  • I really don't like the requirement of the last 5 digits of a candidate's social security number for the "Security ID." Some candidates are reluctant to give that out, when paired with their birth day (also required). I'm not sure why this couldn't be a different piece of information - last 5 of the primary phone number, for example.
  • Some of the field are not well-defined. For example. there is a Resume field, then an Attachments field. And the rate section isn't 100% clear, especially when entering overtime rates or discounted rates.
It's well suited for a company who has lots of vendors, lots of requirements, and lots of contractors. I can see how it would help manage the relationship between vendor and client, and I do think it's better than many of the other VMSs that I have utilized. It allows a vendor to see many requirements simultaneously, and the ability to submit previously submitted candidates is pretty good as well. That's also important because a key component to vendor success (and vendor engagement) is speed to submittal. If your VMS cannot support vendors, you run the risk of losing vendor engagement which means a lesser candidate pool. It would be poorly suited for a smaller company with fewer vendors. Essentially it would be overkill for that sort of organization, and would add unnecessary layers into the hiring process.

My FieldGlass VMS Review

My organization uses FieldGlass VMS to manage our business and recruiting process with a number of clients. It is very proficient in managing data and documents, however, it still does not allow for enough real time information. Fieldglass VMS does not auto populate, so pages have to be refreshed manually.
  • Bill rate calculations. Automatically calculates rates and helps stay within budget.
  • Job Descriptions: very thorough detail, allows for attachments, and gives specific details about the interview process, etc.
  • Format - the overall format is very basic/user-friendly. Dashboard can be customized to suit users preferences.
  • Could use more tools and menu options.
  • Technical support is only offered during regular business hours. Could help to have live 24/7 support available.
  • Pages still crash periodically and you have log in again and lose any data that was not saved.
No. Fieldglass VMS performs to my needs.

I work for a Staffing organization that partners with Fieldglass as well as other VMS technologies as we support the process of hiring/managing temp labor onsite at our clients. When Fieldglass is selected, it is our central technology used to submit job postings, manage approval, hire workers, time track, etc.
  • Generally user friendly/intuitive - comparatively to some competitors FG is easy to navigate.
  • Decently robust releases - usually a good amount of features come out in each release (3 major releases a year)
  • Made good strides in updating/increasing the usability in the last few years
  • 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)
Fieldglass VMS is definitely a leader in VMS technology but has strong competition with Beeline, PROUnlimited software, etc. I would need to do a comparison of FG against these other technologies which I am less knowledgeable. The only other factor is cost - not sure how Fieldglass VMS compares.
