SAP Fieldglass Flex addresses the growing need for external labor management technology in the mid-market. With the percentage of external workers predicted to swell from 35 percent in 2016 to more than 50 percent within a few years, more medium-sized businesses are leveraging alternative talent pools and looking for technology solutions to achieve agility in an increasingly on-demand business environment.

With this solution, organizations can now manage their compliance needs and answer the questions around who works for them, what work they are doing or how much they are paid.
"As mid-sized enterprises continue to increase their use of flexible talent, the technology to manage these workers will play a pivotal role in their external workforce management programs," said Christopher Dwyer, Research Director at Ardent Partners. "As this market increasingly engages with a more blended workforce, it will require technology that can enhance talent engagement, improve cost savings and maintain critical visibility."
With SAP Fieldglass Flex, multiple stakeholders throughout the organization benefit from compliance, reporting and benchmarking, standardized requisition and onboarding processes, and accurate billing and invoicing. By achieving visibility and better management of their external talent, companies can now drive ROI by finding the right mix of talent where and when they need it.
