CHICAGO—September 18, 2012—Fieldglass, Inc.
, the leading technology provider to procure and manage contingent labor and services, will introduce new product capabilities to enhance social collaboration at the 2012 Staffing Industry Analysts’ Contingent Workforce Strategies (CWS) Summit this week, September 20-21, in San Diego. Fieldglass customers can leverage built-in social features to yield better collaboration between suppliers and the program office, improve overall supply chain communication and facilitate better workforce decision-making.
“More and more companies are recognizing the real and tangible business value that can be derived from leveraging social media,” said Bryan Pena, Vice President, Contingent Workforce Strategies and Research, Staffing Industry Analysts. “With that in mind, it is only natural that VMS companies develop offerings to take advantage of these technologies when considering the contingent workforce. This is especially true in light of the explosive growth of contingent workforce management in many of today’s more forward-thinking companies.”
Along with introducing its social functionality at the CWS Summit, Fieldglass has authored an eBook, titledA Social Vendor Management System: What, Why and How
. The complimentary eBook explains the components and benefits of a social VMS. Testimonials from actual users demonstrate the impact these social tools have on today’s organizations and their contingent workforce program processes. It is available for download via the company’s website here
At this year’s Summit, Fieldglass will moderate a panel, titled “Implementing a Contingent Workforce Program,” in which the company will lead a discussion of best practices in program development. Several Fieldglass customers and partners are presenting at this week’s event as well.
