What makes staff augmentation work so well for our clients?

Staff Augmentation for clients

In our previous post, we described what staff augmentation is, how it differs from managed services, and what benefits it can bring to your organization.

In this post, we’re outlining our approach to staff augmentation, to give you an idea of what you can expect if you engage our staff augmentation services. Besides outlining our approach, we’ll also help you determine if staff augmentation really is the right solution for you.

Staff augmentation  has helped our clients build new capabilities, manage unprecedented workloads, upskill their teams and improve productivity, all while reducing TCO (Total Cost Of Ownership).

Al Jazeera used rtCamp to provide surge staffing for some critical, time-sensitive internal projects. The high-quality engineers they provided us integrated quickly with our agile processes & have since proven to be among the most productive members of the team.

We put ourselves in your shoes

Once you’ve filled out the contact form, our approach starts with understanding your business. We study your market and figure out your USP. Doing our homework gives us an idea of the broader challenge in doing business in your industry.

Prepared with our research, we touch base with you for the first time. On this first touchpoint, we-

  1. Thoroughly understand your pain points, and
  2. Gauge the technical expertise of your in-house team.

Based on this, we take a call on whether staff augmentation really is a good fit for the challenge you’re trying to solve, and in case it isn’t, we explore other ways with you to figure out how we can achieve your goal.

We strategically allocate developers to create the greatest impact

Once we’ve determined that staff augmentation is the most effective way to achieve the goal, we strategically allocate developers to unlock the full potential of the project. This includes taking into account several factors such as-

  • Technical complexity of the project – We determine the level of development skills that are required to achieve the deliverables efficiently- whether it’s basic, intermediate, or advanced- and allocate developers accordingly.
  • Experience working on similar projects – Having team members who have dealt with a similar problem before is a huge advantage when trying to implement a complex solution- Their knowledge and experience speeds up the project and reduces the risk of errors. We handpick and allocate developers who have worked on similar projects.
  • Commercial feasibility of the project –  We usually deploy a combination of trained junior level engineers and mid-senior level engineers, and make adjustments along the way. For example, on technically complex projects, we start off with a lead senior engineer and team them up with juniors. The lead guides them and eventually makes them independent. This keeps the project costs in check and prevents any budget leaks.  
  • Training/leading in-house teams – In case your in-house teams require training after the project is completed, we deploy lead level resources that coach them and prepare them to handle things independently.
