CHICAGO, Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SAP Fieldglass, the global cloud technology leader in external workforce management, today announced that company president Rob Brimm has been selected as a 2016 Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine.

The awards recognize supply chain executives and providers that are leading and supporting initiatives that effectively address the challenges of today's business climate. The examples in which SAP Fieldglass did this successfully this past year include:

  • Helping one medical device company implement the platform in less than 120 days to meet a strict compliance deadline. This program launched with $240 million in spend under management and with multiple integration points.
  • Deploying its Worker Profile Tracking solution, for an existing customer, over a five-month period across 90,000+ workers in 95 countries. This gave the company visibility into its entire non-employee workforce.
  • Building out new functionality for a railroad industry customer to accommodate unique time-tracking needs. Effective workforce management via a VMS would not have been possible without this industry-first functionality.

Brimm joined SAP Fieldglass in 2004 to oversee and grow the sales organization, and has been a key stakeholder in the company's growth during his tenure. Promoted to company president in 2015, Brimm helped drive SAP Fieldglass from a promising tech start-up to a global, leading Vendor Management System (VMS) provider. In his time with the company, SAP Fieldglass' sales have grown by 1,200 percent, its customer base has grown six-fold and the technology solution is used to manage workers in 129 countries.

"Being included on the Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know list showcases just how important our business - the strategic management of external talent - is to the entire supply chain system," Brimm said. "Services spend management is one of the last frontiers of the supply chain. In the coming years, as the business environment gets more and more competitive, companies like us that help organizations achieve visibility into the external workforce will play an increasingly important role in the supply chain arena."
