Globality announced today that its Strategic Services Connector extension for SAP® Fieldglass® solutions is available on SAP® Store, which recently merged with SAP App Center as the single digital marketplace for SAP and partner offerings. With the latest extension for the SAP Fieldglass Services Procurement solution, once a supplier is awarded, the Globality Platform will automatically create a statement of work providing all of the relevant data that a business user needs to complete the service request. This ensures enterprises have an integrated and streamlined experience to source the best services suppliers — helping to simplify the process, maintain compliance and drive cost savings. This new extension adds to the previously announced offering with the Globality Strategic Services Connector extensions for SAP® Ariba® Contracts and SAP® Ariba® Buying and Invoicing.
Globality’s Platform transforms the sourcing of high-value services by automating the demand creation, supplier identification, proposal evaluation and statement of work (SOW) creation process with a self-serve, consumer-like interface powered by cutting-edge AI technology. With strategic sourcing increasingly viewed as a critical source of transformational innovation for global enterprises, companies are actively seeking ways to improve their bottom line and increase efficiency gains while sourcing the best supplier for every sourcing need.
“With the ongoing and recently more dramatic shift in the workforce accelerated by the pandemic this past year, global enterprises are more dependent than ever on external suppliers for their consulting, marketing, IT, HR, legal and other service needs,” said Globality Chief Revenue Officer Keith Hausmann. “Business users must be able to conduct extremely rapid, intuitive and cognitive sourcing for their service needs — whenever and wherever they need it. The integration we now have with SAP Fieldglass and SAP Ariba solutions helps ensure users have a seamless end-to-end experience for all their strategic services sourcing needs.”
Globality’s AI engine enables users to determine the project scope in minutes using natural language processing that quickly identifies their intent. Requirements are matched instantly with preferred suppliers and qualified alternatives from Globality’s highly vetted and diverse network. Users can then assess and compare proposals collaboratively with their team members, negotiate digitally and award the business to the best fit supplier.
With the three Globality Strategic Services Connector extensions available on SAP Store, users can easily source service suppliers on Globality’s Platform, automate the SOW creation process with the SAP Fieldglass Services Procurement solution, and create contracts or purchase requisitions automatically in the SAP Ariba Sourcing solution for a complete end-to-end experience.
