Mateusz Dzierzęcki


Entrepreneurs taking their first steps in cooperating with external IT companies often face the challenge of addressing numerous concerns and doubts. The choice of whether to use a specialized company can seem complicated and ambiguous, especially when there are no clear answers to the questions at hand. When pondering on this decision, many customers too often allow these ambiguities to become a barrier to meaningful progress in their business. Therefore, before you think about what is really holding you back, we would like to dispel the most common doubts and show the value of working with us.

Strategic staffing decisions. How IT outsourcing supports during layoffs

In a world of technological innovation and dynamic changes in the IT market, staff flexibility is becoming a foundation for success. IT outsourcing plays a key role, especially in times of economic uncertainty. When companies face the need to optimize costs, outsourcing allows them to continue important projects by providing experts for a specific period of time without committing long-term resources. This is not only a guarantee that key tasks will be carried out, but also significant savings associated with recruitment or deployment costs.

When the IT market picks up again, we are able to provide highly skilled professionals in no time, enabling companies to adapt quickly to new requirements.

Investment or cost? The real benefits of IT outsourcing

We realize that every company faces a variety of budget constraints. The key, however, is to understand the important difference between what we perceive as a current cost and what represents a real investment in the future of the organization. Outsourcing a qualified and proven IT expert is an investment in the continuity and quality of projects. The time saved on recruitment processes, the certainty of access to leading experts in the field, and the elimination of hidden costs associated with hiring permanent employees all translate into real savings for your business.

In addition, long-term benefits such as project stability, high quality of solutions delivered and adaptability to changing market conditions offer value that far outweighs the initial cost of the service. By working with us, you are making a strategic investment in the future of your business.

Why might IT outsourcing be a better choice than direct hire?

Direct hire undoubtedly provides a sense of stability and a good relation with the employee. However, this model is not without its challenges. Recruitment costs, potential missteps in staffing, and expenses associated with lengthy onboarding and training can be a burden on the company. Taking a new employee to the team involves the risk of an inappropriate cultural fit or lack of necessary skills.

Outsourcing of IT specialists, offered by our company, allows you to bypass these difficulties. We provide experts with a precisely tailored profile who are ready to act from day one. Instead of incurring the costs associated with the recruitment and training process, you are investing in the confidence that you will get an expert who meets your requirements. Such cooperation translates into higher efficiency and cost optimization, while guaranteeing the high quality of the projects implemented.

Is direct recruitment always the best choice? The added value of outsourcing IT experts

Acquiring experts unassisted is an admirable ability. Nevertheless, the recruitment process is often long and grueling, and is not always successful. That’s where we come in! By offering access to a wide network of experts, we ensure not only their availability, but above all their quality and precise specialization. Regardless of the complexity of the project or the specifics of the position, we are able to provide an expert perfectly suited to your needs.

It is also worth noting that our cooperation saves you time – we eliminate the need to search the market and conduct multiple interviews. In addition, we take over all the “paperwork” and other employment formalities, so you have time to take care of other important processes in your company.

More than one solution. We deliver choice, not compromise

With many years of practice in the recruitment industry, we have developed a proprietary method for identifying and vetting experts, which allows us to accurately match their skills with the client’s specific requirements. Our approach focuses on an in-depth analysis of each candidate’s competencies to ensure that they are the perfect fit for the project.

We are not limited to providing just one suitable candidate – we offer several carefully selected options. In this way, we not only guarantee the high quality of the experts we recommend, but also give the clients the opportunity to choose the person who will best fit into their vision of the project.

The whole process is not only efficient, but also economical. This allows clients not only to save time, but also to be sure that they have located the right expert in the right place, which translates into the success of ongoing projects.

Team stability and employee turnover risk in outsourcing IT experts

Team stability in any IT project is critical to its success. While the risk of employee turnover exists in every industry, in outsourcing IT professionals we try to minimize it. When you work with us, you benefit from the involvement of experts who are dedicated to a specific project.

We make sure that our specialists are associated with the project for its entire duration. Our working method and experience in the industry allow us to anticipate potential risks and eliminate them. Therefore, by working with us, you are not only investing in competence, but more importantly in the stability and predictability of your operations. In the long run, this translates into a lower employee cost

How outsourcing an IT expert can respond to B2B compliance requirements

Outsourcing of IT experts in the model in hand is not only flexibility in resource management, but also an answer to complex compliance requirements for B2B cooperation. By partnering with an experienced outsourcing company, all paperwork, contracts and employment issues are handled in accordance with applicable regulations, minimizing the risk of violations.

The outsourcing company assumes responsibility for the entire recruitment process, candidate vetting and legal issues, ensuring that all “compliance” requirements are met. In addition, regular audits and close cooperation with the client’s HR departments ensure transparency and confidence that all activities are in compliance with applicable standards. Finally, this is not only process optimization, but also the assurance that B2B cooperation is carried out in accordance with legal requirements.

Is it worth considering more than one partner in DevOps and Cloud technologies?

Diversification is the key to success in many areas of business, and the IT sector is no exception. While having a trusted partner in DevOps and Cloud technologies is valuable, there are benefits to considering working with more than one provider. First, each technology partner has its own character, range of skills and experience, allowing access to a wider range of solutions and perspectives. In cases where your primary partner faces difficulties or lacks certain specialized competencies, an additional partner like us can fill the gap.In addition, working with us allows the flexibility to direct the right resources to where they are needed most, especially in a rapidly changing technological environment. Ultimately, our diverse range of skills and experience in many areas of IT adds value that can enhance your technology strategy and ensure project continuity, regardless of the challenges that may arise.
