IT Staff Augmentation & IT Outsourcing | BDO IT Solutions Canada
One New Project Can Derail Your Business
In his book Scaling Up: How Few Companies Make It.. and Why the Rest Don’t, author and Entrepreneurs’ Organization founder Verne Harnish outlined three things that are most likely to hurt your business when it decides to get adventurous – and number two on the list was the inability to cope with all the issues surrounding information technology.
It’s simple – businesses need to build the technological structure to support business growth in advance, otherwise there’s certain failure on the road to increased profitability.
Maybe you’re thinking of launching a whole new product line, or perhaps you want to target a new market – either way without the right infrastructure and software in place, your business is at risk.
YOU NEED SKILLS NOW, NOT TOMORROW
Full time employees just can’t grow their knowledge base fast enough to keep up with the growing demand for IT services. And according to Gartner, “70 percent of growth companies misallocate funds to non-core IT activities”, something that only costs them later.
So how do you scale up, while still operating with the budget and staff you currently have? Do you take the financial risk of IT outsourcing – or not. And if you don’t proceed, the certainty is you’ll never grow.
And so those with an entrepreneurial mindset make the leap. But not soon after, the real costs of this new project that may or may not bear fruit start racking up in the form of time spent on recruiting, conducting interviews and, if successful, all those additional salaries. It’s a gamble, for sure.
SCALE UP WITHOUT COMMITMENT
At BDO, we provide staff augmentation through our value-sourcing service – a mix of Onfloor and Nearshore experts who help you offset the costs of expensive employees who are now free to focus on planning, strategy and other operational business needs.
At BDO we’ve taken these challenges into consideration. If you’re looking for skillsets in CRM, Sharepoint, or any of the Microsoft Dynamics products including Dynamics AX, and NAV, our people are here to help. As a long-established Canadian company, we want businesses to feel confident they can take the big step without fearing their business could collapse under the weight of over-commitment.
BDO BRINGS VALUE TO YOUR BUSINESS
BDO’s ValueSourcing Program offers an ideal way to achieve the benefits of scaling up or down, without making the commitment to full time staff.
Best of all, our service comes with a management lead so you have one point of contact who oversees a team that can deliver on any backlog – which frees up your staff to work on the company’s next big idea.
LEAVE THE DETAILS TO BDO
Our BDO team will recruit, conduct interviews, and even add consultants to the team as your requirements ebb and flow. A team of 3? No problem. Scale up to 20 – we can do that too, and back down again for both short term and long term engagements.
Either way, IT outsourcing provides you with qualified people who are able to work immediately to help your business grow.
SUPPLEMENT YOUR BUSINESS’S BOTTOM LINE
Not everyone is designed to speak multiple languages. Your employees and executive team may already be precisely the right people for the right job. What you need is more – but you only need .25 of more – not a full 1.0.
BDO Canada’s ValueSourcing program allows you to find and use the right person only for the time you need, and no more. It’s an efficient and productive way for business to ensure they are meeting the leading edge of their commitments.
