Introducing automation to manage contingent workers
When considering a contingent workforce application, Yamaha had a long-standing, trusted partnership with SAP that separated it from competitors. Yamaha was confident that the ease of use and change management would be smoother by choosing an SAP application.
Yamaha brought in the SAP Fieldglass Contingent Workforce Management application to put more efficient processes in place for managing its external contractors. The user interface is allowing integration with e-mail, the approval of work orders and activities, and the ability to manage new job postings and their distribution.
By integrating with SAP ERP Central Component (SAP ECC), the company can manage purchase orders and invoices in SAP Fieldglass solutions, facilitating touchless invoicing. It’s also using the SAP Signature Management application by DocuSign, option for SAP Fieldglass solutions for some contract signing.
The software implementation was successful thanks to expert assistance and advice in functional, business process, and technical matters from SAP Services and Support. There were clearly defined roles and responsibilities and a strong understanding of the deliverables and tasks along with close collaboration between project managers.
