staff augmentation benefits

Pros of the IT staff augmentation model

Expertise on demand

Some modern technologies can be scarce in the local markets, and this shortage ceases their adoption. It’s also important to consider whether these skills are needed long-term. That’s why staff augmentation is beneficial by allowing temporary employment based on the current technology needs without the expense of the full hire.

Rapid adaptation of niche specialists

The IT industry is experiencing a shortage of qualified niche IT professionals, making finding the right specialist a daunting task. Increasing an IT workforce through staff augmentation allows your business to tap into a pool of IT experts regardless of the location.

Adaptability and flexibility

With our IT staff augmentation services, you can scale and grow only when you’re ready. Simplified legal processes allow you to expand your team on a whim. If you feel like the project can be extended and be more successful, add another team member on the go.

Cost savings on overhead

Employees with a complete package of benefits are expected to cost around 1.4 times their income, depending on circumstances. Using staff augmentation to fill a temporary position allows a corporation to avoid some long-term expenditures and overhead.

Keep control and transparency

Staff augmentation is a form of outsourcing, but by using this model you maintain project autonomy and control. You give assignments and performance criteria directly, and track the productivity of offshore developers to ensure they provide value and insights to the project.

No infrustructure investment

We take care of both the recruitment processes and the everyday office routine. You can continue creating quality solutions without having an actual office, as we provide our developers with all needed for efficient work and cover the additional costs such as tech infrastructure, taxes, and perks.

Our IT staff augmentation selection process

  • Discovering needs and requirements

    Our team dives deep into your business on how IT staff augmentation services can benefit your project. We find the best ways to solve hiring challenges and define the precise number of specialists you need to hire.

  • Selecting talents

    Our HR introduces candidates to you so that you learn their experience, technical skills, English level, and soft skills, and then you choose the most suitable candidate for a final interview.

  • Creating a legal agreement

    If our experts meet your expectations, we formalize the agreement in a legal contract. The latter solidifies expectations, states the timeline, and elaborates on collaboration details ( data protection, security, payroll, etc.).

  • Onboarding

    We integrate our experts into the processes of your main office. Our account and talent managers ensure the onboarding process is smooth and seamless.

  • Outcome

    Staff augmentation in Relevant gives you the needed specialists under your complete control, like your in-house team. The only difference is that they work remotely, and we handle all the administration.

Frequently asked questions

IT recruitment agencies mostly specialize in just sourcing IT candidates by their CVs, while the IT staff augmentation company has the expertise in planning, executing, and maintaining the software development processes. IT staff augmentation companies create pools of experienced reliable IT professionals, which allows them to scale or build your team quickly with just the right expertise.

There are several places where you can look for a reliable staff augmentation vendor:
  • your business network that can give recommendations
  • search engines
  • B2B platforms
  • LinkedIn 
When you have a short list of potential IT partners, you need to make sure, the vendor satisfies your requirements of time zone, talent pool, workflow processes, ease of communication, cultural and language fit, and security protocols.  Base your choice on these things, and also make sure to choose the agency, which offers a comfortable, not redundant process. 

IT project outsourcing is the outsourcing of an entire project or aspects of it to an external company, while staffing adds virtual resources to an internal IT team to help manage the workload. IT staff augmentation provides both hourly and part-time IT talents to support your in-house team’s software development outsourcing cycle. This avoids lengthy sourcing and recruiting, as well as facilitates filling of highly-demanded roles in a limited time. The benefit of staff augmentation is not only up to 40% lower costs, but also the possibility to get high expertise for the positions that are not very long-term.

During the call or by another preferred means of communication, you will need to communicate to us your technical needs and requirements. After that, within 1-3 weeks (can depend on the role) we will find you the most suitable candidates. After you approve, we will seal the deal, and engineers will immediately start working on your project.

There are no hidden costs. The staff augmentation model is built that way, that you only pay for the actual working time. A payment QIT Software accepts is a monthly payment composed of the hours of work done during this month. All the recruitment, office hardware, and administrative costs are on our side. 

Choose the staff augmentation when you look for a proven, quick, reliable, and cost-effective way to increase the size and productivity of your development team. This team extension model is suitable both for large development projects and small tech product teams.

We ensure the rigorous selection process of our candidates by conducting a series of interviews and technical testing. Many of our developers stay at the project long-term and have great recommendations. However, if you want to do additional testing from your side, you are welcome to do that.

QIT Software always ensures the new team members immerse in your in-house team and work in line with your strategic goals. Communication will happen through the preferred modern tools for remote teams. Our developers are well familiar with all the modern software for agile development and hybrid team communication, so the collaborative processes go smoothly.
