Our high-quality on-demand staffing in niche skill areas across the spectrum of information technology has resulted in hundreds of successful projects in several key areas, including application development, software testing, project management, systems engineering, business intelligence, enterprise architecture, and security.
Staff augmentation is a strategy for filling the so-called ‘skills gap’ that allows companies to engage top-level professionals for individual projects without having to incur the same costs of hiring new full-time employees.
IT staff augmentation vendors help you add skilled technical resources to your in-house team on a short- or long-term basis. These resources are employed directly by the vendor, thus eliminating the cost and liability of making new full-time hires. Remote employees hired through a staff augmentation firm are managed by the client they work with and are typically dedicated to one project at a time.
Benefits of Staff Augmentation
Not Limited by Geography
Staff augmentation presents a very effective solution for this problem, as it allows you to connect with developers located in other countries without having to look for them yourself. You’ll just need to give your detailed requirements to the vendor providing staff augmentation services, and then choose the best candidates out of those the vendor pre-selects.
Less Time Searching for Employees
Staff augmentation companies can help you reduce your time-to-hire from months to weeks or even days. Such companies normally keep extensive and regularly-updated databases of tech workers, so it’s likely that they’ll be able to match you with the right candidate a lot faster than if you were conducting the search yourself. You’ll be able to save plenty of time and jump straight to interviewing the most promising candidates.
Reduced Investment in Infrastructure
Staff augmentation helps you avoid all these investments, since office facilities, workstations, and support staff are all provided by the staff augmentation vendor. Even if the developer you hire through the staff augmentation model decides to leave shortly after they joined your company, you don’t end up with stagnant infrastructure investments.
Elimination of Benefit Payments
With staff augmentation, you no longer have to pay for employee benefits, since technically your developers are employees of the staffing provider. Of course, the provider will charge a fee for their services, but it will almost certainly be a lot lower than what you’d have to pay if the developers were on your payroll.
