Fieldglass is a software company based in Chicago, Illinois, United States. The company provides a vendor management system (VMS) called Fieldglass VMS, a cloud-based technology used to manage the non-employee workforce of contingent workers (independent contractors). The various business processes that such management comprises include procurement, statements of work, project management, and payment. In 2014, Fieldglass was recognized in The Forrester Wave: VMS, Q1 2014 by Forrester Research, Inc., as the highest-scoring VMS provider in Contingent Workforce Management/Vendor Management System (CWM/VMS) functionality and market presence.[4]

Fieldglass was acquired by SAP in 2014 and is now a subsidiary.

History[edit]

Fieldglass was founded by current CEO Jai Shekhawat in 1999.[5] As of early 2014, Fieldglass had more than 340 employees located between its headquarters in Chicago, and additional offices in Naperville, Illinois; Mumbai, India; London, Sydney and other remote offices worldwide.[2] Fieldglass is currently used in 100+ countries, available in 16 languages and accessed by nearly 25,000 suppliers.[6] Fieldglass is a member of the Sourcing Interests Group (SIG) and the Illinois Technology Association (ITA).[7]

In September 2010 Fieldglass received a significant investment from Madison Dearborn Partners.[8] At the time Fieldglass was valued at more than $220 million.[9] Madison Dearborn Partners’ portfolio includes CDW, MetroPCS and Univision.[10]

Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2013 VMS and MSP Supplier Competitive Landscape Report said that Fieldglass had the highest annual flexible workforce spend under management and widest global footprint of any VMS provider. For the fifth consecutive year, Fieldglass ranked highest in total spend under management, with $27.4 billion in 2012.[11]

In 2014 Fieldglass announced that the company experienced its eighth straight year of profitability in 2013. Fieldglass was accessed by two million new users that same year. To support this growth, the company extended its customer support offerings to include a multi-lingual, 24/7 helpdesk.[12]

Customers[edit]

As of Q1 2014, Fieldglass' client base includes approximately 250+ customers, including:[13]

Two Fieldglass customers were named winners in the 2013 Supply & Demand Chain Executive “Pro To Know” Awards. Nokia Siemens Networks’ procurement team was honored for its strategic deployment of Fieldglass[14] and TELUS’ Patti Vora was honored for transforming the company’s contingent workforce program with Fieldglass.[15] In addition, BMC Software’s Global Procurement Contingent Workforce team was named “Pros to Know” in 2012 for its efforts to proactively manage the company’s contingent labor spend and workforce from a global perspective using Fieldglass.
