Augmentation Overview

IT Staff Augmentation Solutions

With the right partner, IT staff augmentation is an agile way for enterprises to quickly meet production demands and save on human resource costs. Leveraging a third-party resource to fill talent gaps empowers organizations to focus on other areas while keeping the IT infrastructure healthy. Staffing assistance helps organizations supplement their internal staff with external expertise, allowing IT to gain outside knowledge previously unfamiliar.

IT Staff Augmentation

Small to mid-sized organizations encounter significant problems when attempting to conduct everything in-house. This covers data processing and storage, as well as the transition from on-premises to cloud-based storage. This is where IT Staff Augmentation by QOS Consulting can achieve the balance companies need. QOS Consulting services the Chicago area.

The truth is that you can hire your own internal IT support team. Are ready though to invest enough and hire enough backup workers to ensure that the business is covered in the event of IT staff resignations? Remember, once you teach someone new or extended technology, that person becomes increasingly valued on the job market. You then run the risk of losing that person. Staffing companies experience the same issue, albeit to a lesser extent, but the size of the workforce mitigates this greatly.

If you have a two-person in-house IT staff and one of them resigns, you've lost half of your capability. When a staffing provider loses one of its 40 employees, it only loses 2.5% of its capabilities. In addition, the outsource managed IT service provider is in a better position to adequately train new employees and provide continuous training.

We are a leader in the Chicago area for IT staff augmentation. Associates deliver a variety of skills and span the gamut of experience, from entry-level knowledge to CTO-level leadership. Client-centric approach ensures you always obtain value from our staff and that systems and processes will be maintained and improved. QOS Consulting’s staffing solutions offer many benefits that will help your organization scale, adapt, and be a leader in your industry.

Agile IT Staff Augmentation for Fast-Paced Demands

By leveraging a third-party staffing resource, companies can easily ramp-up or scale-down production as priorities and demands change. Associates can help on an as-needed basis and require virtually no onboarding, delivering solutions quickly and efficiently. QOS Consulting can also deliver outside expertise for special, one-time projects. This allows you to take advantage of outside skills while not committing to a full-time employee with a niche background.

Staff augmentation also allows internal IT departments to focus on opportunities that generate revenue. This leaves the mundanities of infrastructure maintenance to the outsourced team. A scenario that helps the enterprise’s bottom-line while improving the internal team’s morale.

Experienced IT Staff Augmentation with Vetted Backgrounds

An organization’s IT infrastructure must be in trustworthy hands to prevent security breaches and the dissemination of protected data. QOS understands the serious responsibility of protecting client information and system access, and thus we conduct rigorous background checks on all personnel who are tasked with managing client data, ensuring their personal history and IT experience meet professional standards. NDAs and confidentiality agreements are required from our staff and can provide highly-regarded individuals for projects requiring the utmost security, confidentiality, and skill.

Cost-Effective & Risk-Mitigating

When you have chosen the right partner, like QOS Consulting, IT staff augmentation can help companies save on HR and overhead costs since full-time employees require benefits and training that an outsourced team does not. Additionally, there are far fewer liabilities for the enterprise when leveraging contract staff, and scalability is far easier when utilizing outsourced help.

Resources and Skills Across the Spectrum

No matter what your enterprise’s talent needs are, QOS Consulting can fill them. From entry-level to CTO expertise, we engage with engineers and technicians that run the gamut of experience. If your organization needs an interim CTO while searching for permanent talent, we can provide that. We are able to service the Chicago, Illinois area.
