What is staff augmentation?

A new way to solve potential staff shortcomings and achieve your business goals

Often hailed as ‘the new agile IT outsourcing’, a generally accepted definition reads something like this: an outsourcing strategy which is used to staff a project and respond to business objectives, by evaluating the existing staff and then determining which additional skills are required.

More and more companies, particularly startups, are turning to this method of staffing in favor of complete project outsourcing. Why? Simple. As well as being more affordable than complete outsourcing, it’s also non-disruptive and there’s less chance of making your existing workforce feel threatened. If you need a specific skill set only for a short period of time, the advantages can be invaluable.

How it works

We bring in the hard-to-find technical skillsets you need so you can focus on growing your business.

No two businesses or projects are ever the same so why should you settle for a staffing solution where you try to fit square pegs into round holes?

We can provide you with the highly-skilled talent you need to supplement your requirements so you can let your own in-house staff focus on their core duties.

Our approach is about active collaboration, not a stale customer-client attitude. We believe in truly understanding your company's vision, needs, and culture first, through an in-depth consultation. Then we build a tailored offering to suit your requirements.

Also, we believe in keeping the ‘human’ in human resources. That’s why our people are not only highly-skilled, proven experts in every aspect of software development, but they also possess the necessary soft skills to build relationships and offer new perspectives.

Designed for start-ups by a start-up which has successfully scaled up, our industry-leading services can help your business thrive while staying lean and enjoying total control.
