SAP SE announced the general availability of SAP Fieldglass Assignment Management, a new solution to help manage contractors performing ad hoc work under existing supplier agreements. The solution simplifies assigning and managing work projects across multiple workers and variable pay rates, enabling operations managers to quickly deploy assignments, minimize downtime and maximize return on investment.
External labor accounts for 42% of total workforce spend, according to a recent report by SAP and Oxford Economics. Although 55% of the executives surveyed said that their company would be unable to conduct business as usual without an external workforce, many organizations lack visibility and insight into this large, strategic spend category. The SAP Fieldglass Assignment Management solution helps provide transparency, flexibility and control with a single interface to simplify how organizations manage contractors deployed on an as-needed basis within gated facilities.
Already a provider of external workforce management, SAP is responding to customer demands with the release of SAP Fieldglass Assignment Management to empower organizations with:
- Visibility to improve cost control and results. Pay rules help manage compliance at the contract and location level, and businesses can track standard time and overtime on a daily basis.
- Flexibility to increase speed and productivity. Integration with gate pass systems and embedded smart logic help ensure more accurate calculation of working time with fewer errors, enabling organizations to help keep their maintenance crews and operations running smoothly to minimize downtime and disruptions.
- Confidence to manage compliance and security risks. Better tracking and management of work assignments help ensure contractors have access to the proper facilities and that on- and offboarding are standardized across workers. This helps to mitigate risk and increase compliance with local labor regulations.
