From customer service to marketing and sales to shipping and logistics, outsourcing is a go-to solution for companies in nearly every industry looking to strengthen their bottom line. Staff augmentation is particularly beneficial to IT teams seeking a way to add to their existing talent pool for a specific project or to reduce the pressure of ongoing IT demands.
Whether you have a looming deadline on a data migration or you are planning a major infrastructure upgrade, you may be limited by the size or specific skills of your in-house team. When these limitations begin to affect your ability to finish a project on time or within your budget, the benefits of staff augmentation through outsourcing become clear.
Better Budget Planning
Providing staff augmentation options by outsourcing does far more than save companies money, but for many companies, the budget is the motivator for the initial conversation around outsourcing. Hiring IT personnel carries expenses beyond salaries and benefits: hiring managers must consider the expense of advertising the position, the time and energy that goes into choosing the right candidates, onboarding the candidate that seems best to fit the position, and then trusting that they will remain with your company long enough to gain a return on the investment.
When you outsource, you leave the hiring process and all of its related tasks and expenses to your third-party provider. An outsourcing provider is well-versed in the certifications and qualifications necessary for the position you are seeking to fill.
In a perfect world, your on-site IT staff could fluctuate to fit the slow and busy seasons at your office. Unfortunately, you don’t have a reserve of professionals to call upon when things get crazy. That’s what you get when you outsource: a qualified group of professionals ready to assist your team. Furthermore, they are also equipped with the latest technology that can expand the specific skills your team possesses. Staff augmentation goals often hinge around filling gaps, which is what you can achieve with a third party.
When you outsource, you immediately tap into a team of experts ready to assist you. Equip your project and your team with the right talent and specific skills that help you meet your goals and ultimately help you move forward with important initiatives.
