Local technology specialists, Basalt (formerly Black Beard), have introduced a new solution to the market that smaller businesses with dynamic operating models may be interested in, especially given the chaos of 2020 – Team Finder.
Those thinking that this is simply a solution to help you keep tabs on members of your team are sorely mistaken, as Basalt describes it as a, “bespoke solution for accessing ‘staff on demand’ (SOD) in the form of remote software developers, business analysts, product managers and designers that can drive innovation and support existing teams.”
As such, it sounds like a solution that lean and agile teams may find worthwhile.
“We have identified the growing need for talented developers and IT innovators who can quickly deliver value to businesses using an agile and scalable ‘staff on demand’ model,” explains Wayne Zwiers, CEO of Basalt.
“Businesses across sectors are embracing distributed workforces as a way to both drive growth and cut down on costs – and gaining access to the Basalt Team Finder platform can enable businesses and teams to find the right talent for their innovation strategies,” he adds.
Leveraging its own experience when it comes to distributed workforces, Basalt notes that it has an extensive range of technology specialists who are located around the world. These developers are able to provide high quality and intentional technology solutions for a range of clients on an outsourced basis, the company adds.
This kind of model, particularly as remote working has become the new normal, will be one that we should see rise to prominence in coming months, Zwiers points out.
“This type of ‘staff on demand’ solution will become more and more important as the global business work force environment adapts and embraces a leaner, on-demand approach to recruitment,” says the CEO.
With small businesses still required to ensure that their output is as high as ever, couple with rising costs of running said business, leaning on a network of specialists on a project-by-project basis certainly sounds like a more efficient approach.
“Companies can no longer rely on old models and traditional ways of recruiting skills,” says Zwiers.
“Those that quickly embrace emerging solutions and more dynamic models will be best positioned to innovate their way out of economic challenges,” he concludes.
