Do you have demanding project requirements or deadlines that could really use some help?
If so, some assistance from an external developer could be just what you need.
While every IT Team has different support needs; experience has taught us that in many cases, the need begins from a very similar situation.
Some of the most commons challenges we’ve helped IT Managers, Directors and CTOs solve with their development teams include:
Your IT team is working on the development requirements for a multifaceted project involving multiple departments within your company. Every business unit wants something different, has conflicting priorities, and wants their say. Your team is frustrated with being stuck in the middle and not having a concrete plan because no one will agree on the best way to move forward.
As an outside, unbiased development partner, we can provide an objective perspective, proven processes for defining project scoping, and act as a facilitator between departments to encourage an amicable solution to get the project back on track. Finally, there’s a partner to help keep your project moving forward.
The good news is that all of your staff is being utilized on major projects and/or billing 100% of their time. The bad news is that some of your ‘high maintenance’ clients are causing project delays with tedious requests and your que is so full that even small jobs are backlogged for weeks. Telling your clients ‘no’ is not an option; it will damage your relationship and jeopardize the possibility of future work.
With our range of experience, you can bring us into a variety of projects with as much or as little involvement as you need. We can complete small jobs with ease to allow your team to stay focused on bigger projects or work efficiently alongside them to deliver larger, more complex requirements. You can count on us to help alleviate the pressure on your team so you can feel good about the new work coming your way!
It’s become evident that the big project you’re working on is going to require a specific technology skillset you no longer have on staff. There’s also a legacy project built in another technology that you don’t have experience with that needs attending to. Expectations and deadlines are mounting, but there’s no budget or time to hire a new employee with the technical expertise you need.
With our comprehensive knowledge, experience and technical expertise, we can jump into projects and get up to speed quickly with minimal handholding. We’ll listen to understand your needs, provide approach options based on the specific technology requirements, and collaborate with you to identify the best way forward. Now you can rest easy knowing your projects will be done properly and on-time without the burden of another salary.
The external vendor you’re working with is really letting you down. They’re not responding to your email, respecting your process or meeting the requirements you agreed to, and always seem to have an excuse for everything. Missed deadlines are piling up and they’re costing you time and money, not to mention damage to your professional reputation.
Big or small, every one of your requests and projects is important to us because it’s important to you. When you need an answer, we’ll have it to you promptly. When you’re counting on us to meet a deadline, we’ll deliver what we promised. It’s that simple. Your complete satisfaction matters most. Your search for a reliable partner is over. We’re ready to earn your business.
We are well-versed in adapting to team dynamics and adjusting our approach to work effectively with your staff. We respect the talent at the table and will ensure your project flows smoothly by following your processes and delivering quality workmanship.
No need to worry about vendor lock-in. We’ll ensure you have easy access to your application’s source code, thorough documentation, and a hassle-free transition to your internal sustainment team or another vendor if needed.
Having regular communication with your team is vital to a successful delivery. You can rest assured we will meet your deadline because we know exactly what’s required to get there and will plan our work accordingly. Discussing project risks early and how to mitigate them are another way we avoid costly delays.
We will achieve your business objectives by clearly defining your requirements. As the project progresses, you will receive regular updates on how we are tracking, so there are no surprises at the end.
