Optimizing value and efficiency with a global view of its contingent workforce
With highly skilled IT professionals, software developers, and engineers typically difficult to source, Capgemini wanted a flexible, cost-effective way to access the skills it requires at the right time, with the right quality, and at the right cost.
Seeking end-to-end visibility and control over every aspect of its external workforce, Capgemini sought a single integrated solution to find, engage, manage, and pay its contingent workers. It also needed a solution that perfectly fit with the firm’s global business structure and several legal entities, allowing it to deliver a simple process across the business.
Establishing an enterprise-wide strategy for contingent workers
Capgemini chose the SAP Fieldglass Contingent Workforce Management application, citing its end-to-end functionality in a single application, as well as its innovative product roadmap that can evolve with Capgemini’s business.
With the help of SAP Fieldglass, Capgemini has established an enterprise-wide strategy for engaging contingent workers with access to the best professional talent, more diverse workers, and cost-saving opportunities. By automating the entire process of attracting and managing flexible labor – from requisition all the way through invoice and payment – the consulting firm now has standard, efficient, and compliant processes across countries. In addition, Capgemini’s procurement team can measure success with comprehensive reporting on time to fill, cost, compliance, quality, and more.
Two major factors influenced our selection of the SAP Fieldglass Contingent Workforce Management application. First, its end-to-end functionality in a single application. And second, its innovative product road map that will evolve with our business in managing an ever-growing external workforce.

Capgemini has already achieved impressive results since the implementation, including 85% of its global contingent workforce spend is now captured in the SAP Fieldglass solution. In addition, the company can measure business process improvements with a fulfillment rate of 80% as well as a 60% reduction in time-to-fill rate.
With comprehensive visibility and transparency, Capgemini has access to deep insights into its global spend, market position, and opportunities for cost optimization, allowing it to mitigate risk and make strategic sourcing decisions. And its end-to-end visibility and control over every aspect of its external workforce helps the company get more work done on time, at the highest quality, and at the right cost.
Ensuring business continuity during difficult times
Capgemini’s full visibility into its existing workforce helps it ensure business continuity within client engagements globally during the time of COVID-19. The pandemic has also highlighted the urgent need for establishing a highly skilled, remote global workforce.
“Capgemini is a prominent example of the growing importance of the contingent labor market to workforce agility, business continuity, success, and innovation,” said Tamara Braun, chief customer officer, SAP Intelligent Spend Management. “External consultants are central to the quality of services Capgemini delivers to its global client base. What’s more, its leaders clearly understand that engaging this flexible workforce at scale positively impacts quality, competitiveness, and compliance.”
