The human resource needs of software developers can dramatically increase and decrease in a short amount of time. A company may need extra coders to push out a new feature but once it is finished the surplus manpower may go to waste. Flexible contract management is one way to avoid the problem of being overstaffed but this is challenging and requires a lot of time to organize. A simpler solution is to team up with an IT outsourcing company that can add or subtract developers to your teams on demand.
One of our now long-term clients, an energy management software developer, decided to team up with us because we were able to provide senior Java developers and ramp the team up and down as needed in accordance with their activity level.
This client has their own in-house development team but their need for manpower constantly changes. Anytime they find a new customer they need to add more features to the application in order to make accommodations for their unique needs.
More features mean more coding and if our client wanted to keep delivering on time they needed to take on additional coders. Upgrades and changes to their existing systems also create surges in the demand for coding power. So this client needed to find a way to add and subtract expert Java developers to their project on demand without having to go through a lengthy recruitment process each time.
