ABeam Consulting begins implementation consulting service for SAP®Fieldglass®, the human resources sharing platform

ABeam Consulting Ltd.

ABeam Consulting Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Toshinori Iwasawa, president) today began providing a new consulting service for implementation of SAP®Fieldglass®, a cloud-based human capital sharing platform provided by SAP Japan Co. Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Yuzuru Fukuda, president).

The striking changes that characterize today’s economic environment demand that companies make ever-greater use of specialized external resources. But the work of procuring and managing external resources is still mainly done through paper documentation, spreadsheet software and e-mail. The slow arrival of digitization in this area has led to regulatory compliance issues. In addition, the current circumstances are not conducive to the kinds of groupwide cross-sectional administrative policies and improvements in governance that globally active corporations need. These improvements include procurement process unification and price optimization, and achieving them requires the construction of frameworks that facilitate global service purchasing, as well as external resource procurement and management.

ABeam Consulting is now combining its expertise in industrial and business process reengineering with SAP Japan's SAP®Fieldglass®, which has already established a global track record of performance in service purchasing, external personnel procurement and management. The resulting comprehensive consulting service makes ABeam Consulting the first consulting firm to obtain SAP®Fieldglass® Partner Managed Cloud (PMC) certification on a global basis.

The key features of the service are as follows:

1. Diagnostic service quantifies legal/regulatory compliance levels and procurement cost-cutting effects
ABeam Consulting formulates indexes for the current and ideal external personnel procurement and service purchasing processes, and performs qualitative and quantitative evaluations of progress toward goals. We also measure the effects on business when goals are reached through the continuation and sustainment of improvements that increase the maturation of processes.

2. Procurement cost optimization on a global level and enhanced compliance
Through globalization, unification and management of service purchasing and personnel procurement, we can make procurement costs visible and cut costs. By making processes and management visible with respect to the requirements of labor and hiring laws in each country, we help strengthen the compliance status of client firms.

3. Optimization of workforce allocation, including external staff, linked to SAP solutions
Through integration of SAP® SuccessFactors® provided by SAP, we enable uniform management of the needed personnel skills and evaluation, education and training. ABeam Consulting also helps with creating the frameworks that help client firms secure and optimally allocate workforce rapidly to ensure that organizations and teams can achieve top performance.

4. Speedy services provided through ABeam Cloud®
ABeam Consulting enables speedy implementation by providing services through the ABeam Cloud® business innovation platform. We provide ledger templates adapted to customary Japanese business practices as well as an interface with existing systems.

Moving forward, ABeam Consulting will work closely with the SAP® Fieldglass® product team to provide optional services based on the most up-to-date product and service information. ABeam Consulting will also work with SAP Japan to actively provide information and support based on the latest products and advanced case studies as we engage client firms with strategic marketing activities that advance their strategic goals of reforming service purchasing and external personnel procurement.
