Embracing a nearshore strategy for experienced and agile talent at a better ROI

Our client is a leading international management consulting firm. Their clients rely on them for expert strategies that optimize and accelerate organizational performance. To stay ahead of the competition, our client constantly searches for versatile developers that have the ability to deliver within aggressive timelines. When we met, they were searching for a quick solution that could provide them with top development talent and an easy onboarding process.

The Challenge

Our client was already embracing distributed teams and a multi-vendor approach to development before their partnership with number8. However, they knew expanding their vendor options would provide them with more opportunities to choose ideal candidates for their hard-to-source roles. They were also in the process of adopting an agile methodology, which made finding the right vendor even more difficult. Ideally, their vendor partner would have experienced talent, work in the same time zone, integrate with their team seamlessly, have training in agile software development, and cost less than hiring internal team members. They didn’t want to compromise and number8 didn’t think that they should have to. After carefully considering their options, they chose number8 as a staff augmentation partner, capable of keeping their deliverables on schedule and on budget.

The Outcome

number8 is now a preferred vendor partner for this industry giant. Over the past 5 years, we have expanded the positions we’ve filled to include not only highly-skilled developers, but also project management, business analyst, and design consultants. We regularly expand and reduce our consultant headcount to match the client’s needs, keeping their workforce costs low. We consistently maintain roughly 15 number8s on extended engagements, but have had up to 30 consultants placed across multiple departments at one time. The consultants involved in extended engagements have been able to evolve with the strategic direction of the organization, adapting as new technologies are adopted and implemented. Their deep product knowledge and domain experience has even allowed them to move into high-level development roles within the organization.
