Our Roadmap to Success
Step 1: Discovery - Uncovering Your Unique Needs:
The journey to success begins with a thorough discovery phase. We recognize that every organization has unique requirements, so we engage in in-depth consultations to understand your business objectives, culture, and specific IT needs.
By thoroughly assessing the skills, capabilities, and level of seniority required, we can determine the optimal team composition for your organization. Our solutions-oriented approach ensures we align our services with your strategic goals, setting the foundation for a successful partnership.
During this phase, you’ll meet one of our business development representatives, and you’ll have access to our CTO, Paul Dermody, who will help you determine the team members you need to add to your team to achieve your goals.
Step 2: Interview - Finding the Perfect Fit:
In the interview stage, we conduct detailed interviews with potential candidates, both internal and external, to ensure a perfect fit. Our rigorous selection process assesses candidates for technical proficiency and cultural alignment with your company values.
By handpicking individuals with the proper skill set and a shared work ethic, we ensure seamless integration into your existing team, promoting collaboration and productivity. Our average time to present a candidate to you is six days after we have identified the profile you’re looking for.
Step 3: Setup - Streamlining Onboarding Processes:
Efficient onboarding is critical to a smooth transition. In the setup stage, we handle all logistical aspects, providing necessary equipment, such as hardware and software, and setting up email accounts and communication channels.
Our seamless integration approach allows our augmented team members to adapt to your systems and processes, reducing disruptions quickly. Additionally, we manage the payroll processes, ensuring a transparent and streamlined payment system.
To ensure a successful start, we provide comprehensive induction training that familiarizes new team members with your organization's policies, procedures, and work culture, enabling them to contribute effectively from day one.
