Staff augmentation: short-term help for long-term impact
To successfully complete an advanced technology project, your organization must have the manpower and senior-level expertise to plan and execute within budget. When your project requires extra support that you may not have on staff, GRIT can help through our IT staff augmentation services.
Our team of technology project experts has years of experience serving businesses across multiple industries. We know that every project is unique, so we’ll ensure we provide the right team members most familiar with your technology project to assist.
You Should Consider IT Staff Augmentation If:
- You believe the scope of the technology project is too large for your in-house staff
- You’re looking for a cost-effective alternative to in-house hires
- The project’s turnaround time does not allow for new hires to be considered
- The technology project has a higher budget than anticipated to allow for ad hoc resources
- Inability to meet defined goals without having extra senior-level support
Co-managed IT support for your IT department
Co-managed IT is an IT management service model that allows businesses and IT administrators to customize which IT services to keep in-house and which to outsource to a trusted partner like GRIT. It gives businesses a unique opportunity to pair the convenience and up-to-date resources of an external IT management service with their own in-house specialists to optimize efficiency. With GRIT’s co-managed services, you can pick and choose the resources you need and when you need them. IT co-management is an opportunity to create a partnership to supplement, enhance and support your existing IT team.
To establish a co-management approach, our experts will work with you to:
- Analyze your existing IT department’s needs, skills, resources, tools and abilities.
- Determine which services or resources you need to meet department or organizational goals.
- Develop a plan and allocate resources to provide for those needed services.
Co-management looks different for each business. Some companies rely on their in-house IT department for helpdesk support while leveraging an external partner for large-scale strategies and security, or vice versa. It’s also flexible — as your needs or resources change, so can your co-management strategy.
What can co-managed IT services providers deliver?
Some of the services that GRIT can provide to help your organization’s internal IT team include:
- Access to state-of-the-art monitoring, management and ticketing platforms and processes
- End-user support services
- Support overflow services
- Contractual IT resources
- Consulting services including knowledge transfer and process implementation
