SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) said it plans to acquire Fieldglass, the leading technology provider for procuring and managing contingent labour and services.
The addition of Fieldglass´ cloud-based vendor management system solution meets the growing demand among employers to manage flexible workforces that can be quickly engaged and on-boarded to support rapidly changing business and customer needs.
Combined with the collaborative, network-based procurement capabilities of Ariba and the human resources expertise of SuccessFactors, the acquisition uniquely positions SAP to deliver a platform for businesses to manage their entire workforce, from initial recruiting and on-boarding to ongoing development, performance management, retention and retirement.
Fieldglass´ cloud-based vendor management system allows organizations to procure and manage their flexible workforces, including contingent labour and services managed through statements of work, such as project-based spend, offshore engagements and independent contractors.
