WALLDORF, Germany, March 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- SAP
SE (NYSE: SAP) today 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.
Companies in asset-intensive industries such as oil and gas,
chemicals, utilities and mining rely heavily on contractors to
perform ad hoc maintenance and project work. These external workers
are often assigned simultaneously to multiple projects. But each
project may be managed individually under separate contracts, often
across disparate systems. This makes it difficult to find and
deploy the right resources with the right skills for each job, pay
those hourly workers on time while enforcing contract compliance,
and track hours and costs against purchase orders, cost centers and
"SAP is providing a solution on a single platform on which
companies can manage the complexity of multiple projects with
several contractors under one supplier agreement," said Mickey North
Rizza, IDC Program Vice President of Enterprise
Applications and Digital Commerce. "This solution limits up-front
sourcing for every project and reduces overall supply agreements
while extending information into the manufacturing operation
systems and ERP."
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
"As the portion of business spend on external labor grows,
companies need full transparency into their external workforce
operations," said SAP Fieldglass General Manager Arun Srinivasan. "SAP Fieldglass Assignment
Management enables organizations to better control their costs with
a highly configurable, integrated tool. Businesses in
asset-intensive industries can be confident that highly skilled
contractors have access to the right facilities to complete the
critical maintenance work while ensuring billing is done accurately
and labor regulations, including worker safety, are followed."
Already an industry leader in 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
- 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
- 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.
