SAP Fieldglass is a very effective project data management software, and the setting the first time was a very simple process. All the features are easy to use, and the capabilities are very reliable for our project progress. The effect on workflow and collaboration for multiple projects and document management is perfect.
  • Easy to use.
  • Functional features.
  • Easy to migrate big project.
  • The features are complicated to new people.
  • The big files are not easy to categorize.
  • Interface is not friendly when new user.
The ability to provide accurate Engineering data reports and analytics. The processing of data and the coordination across multiple construction projects are excellent. The data transfer and employee contacts management through SAP Fieldglass are very effective. The tools are responsive, and they allow easy gathering of multiple insights and activities from different projects to be effective.

I use SAP Fieldglass for the end-to-end subcontracting process.
  • Document management
  • Workflow
  • Tracking
  • Cumbersome
  • Too many required fields
  • OCR
SAP Fieldglass is well suited for managing sub-contractors. SAP Fieldglass is less appropriate for trying to onboard sub-contractors quickly.

We just implemented SAP Fieldglass in our organization to manage outsourced vendors. The solution is diverse and addresses a lot of our vendor management concerns. SAP Fieldglass also helps with onboarding new consultants and overseeing the spending.

Fieldglass is used globally across the enterprise for Contingent and SoW. It enables total visibility and management of all non-employee spending; both Time & Material and Fixed Price. Implementing Fieldglass has improved the business experience by making the process to engage, manage and pay for non-employees simpler, easier, and more automated. The rich data now collected on the different types and locations of non-employees (spend, numbers, types, location, etc.) allows for better commercial and strategic resource decisions which have resulted in significant benefits.
  • Fieldglass is very good at simplifying, automating, and managing the engagement of all types of non-employee - Contingent and SoW.
  • Fieldglass enables visibility of all data relating to all non-employees; spend, types, locations, rates, etc. which allows for better forecasting, profiling, and ultimately reduction in spending and numbers.
  • Fieldglass works well with and integrates smoothly with other applications like Oracle, Workday, Ariba, etc.
  • Fieldglass could sharpen and update the User Interface; including broadening the functionality of their different apps.
  • Fieldglass could enhance their analytical capability, making it easier to visualise and analyse all worker types in one place.
  • Fieldglass would benefit from developing more AI into the SoW creation wizard to help improve the quality of SoW content.
Fieldglass is well suited to most situations where non-employees are used, in particular, contingent workers ("temps" & Contractors) and anywhere work is completed via Statement of Work (SoW) for Services and where Managed Service Workers (MSW), Consultants, Resource Augmentation Workers are used. It's possibly less suitable for the engagement of "zero-hours workers", "freelancers", ancillary workers (total outsourced services). Because Fieldglass is highly flexible and relatively simple to deploy, it lends itself well to organisations of any size (small, medium & large) and in any location globally.

SAP Fieldglass is the technology enabling platform in 15---and expanding to 5 additional countries---for the procurement of contingent labor and in a few countries for the provision of freelancers and project-based work engaged via an SOW. An internal team has been set up to support the deployment of a Services Procurement program with strategic suppliers that is in the process of being rolled out. SAP Fieldglass enables us to have greater visibility into how Novartis procures (and manages) external talent and services through standardized processes driving improved compliance, a better quality of talent, and greater control of cost.
  • Robust process design and configuration
  • Ability to manage all types of external workers
  • Integration capability
  • UI - Cumbersome for infrequent users
  • Market Rate intelligence
  • Blue collar worker management
SAP Fieldglass is very well suited to manage white-collar contingent labor and services procurement but less for blue collar and shift workers.

SAP Fieldglass is implemented across the whole organisation to procure, manage and optimize our external workforce more efficiently but also help with innovative solutions by harnessing the power of data and digital while contributing towards our digital aspiration at Novartis. It enables us to streamline and simplify the end-to-end process from initiation of a statement of work through to contract signature, service delivery, and invoicing. SAP Fieldglass is used for the contingent workforce as well as for services.
  • Contingent labor process, starting from the job posting to final candidate onboarding
  • Supplier and Customer collaboration options in the system
  • Configuration options for customers
  • Management of service delivery and service contract setups
  • Option to establish a true end-to-end process (from source2contract to final payment)
  • Usability to be improved (to allow more end users to act directly in the system)
  • Rate card management / Fx rate management
  • Documentation of the functionality (There is so much functionality available in the system, it would be great to receive more instructions how to configure).
  • AI usage to ensure more intuitive entries, based on past usage and other users' experience/work
Where SAP Fieldglass does well:
  • Speed through process automation
  • Increased visibility on the service delivery
  • Smart processing and operational efficiency (digital contract creation, pre-defined workflows, automated PO creation and confirmations)
  • Better compliance and adherence to contract terms using standardized contract/SOW templates and enforced rate cards Better transparency on the process stage through process tracking Integrated process from bidding to payment
Overall Fieldglass can be used in the areas where an external workforce is involved, whether these are contingent labor resources or services. For material/goods related contracts (software, etc.) the system is in our opinion not suitable.

SAP Fieldglass is an excellent and comprehensive, helpful system [for] easy contractor database management and a very easy solution for even non-technical users to get started. The budgeting capability that SAP Fieldglass provides is nice and quite reliable for the effective categorization and invoicing operations. Also, SAP Fieldglass has the best tools.
  • Asset management tool.
  • Excellent inventory management.
  • Skills tracking solution.
  • Performance speed requires improvement.
  • Dashboard setting can be made effective.
  • Collaboration ability is low.
SAP Fieldglass is the best solution for order management for the project managers. [It is an] easy tool for recruitment management, [has] effective tools, and [is] easy to manipulate. SAP Fieldglass also allows the user to simply manage resources and again, SAP Fieldglass['s] capability for time tracking is excellent and helpful to the users.

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.

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.

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.
