Flex Labor and Engineering Solutions for VARS and SPs

For VARS, solution providers and technology hardware and software companies who deploy technologies, engineering labor balance is a constant challenge. You build your bench for high utilization and the most sought after skills for your bottom line...but then you have a labor spike and can’t respond fast enough without loading up your labor pool or bringing in a partner, who could potentially compete with you in your very own deal. If you rapidly overstaff you risk potential layoffs, and if you understaff, you may not be able to respond to your clients.

Temporary contracting is rarely an option because you don’t know what you are getting.

Sound familiar? IGNW can help. Our VAR Elastic Services Solution (VES) can help you address short or long term labor needs with highly skilled, trustworthy, vetted engineers that wear YOUR shirts, work in YOUR process and add to YOUR bottom line!

How it Works

IGNW understands the difficulty of maintaining a bench of engineering talent across a diverse and ever changing technology landscape. We have developed a program to help win deals, improve your margins and simplfiy your professional services offerings.

  • VAR/SP identifies the resource needed to deliver and gives IGNW a 2-4 week “heads up”.
  • IGNW matches the requirement to our deep bench or will hire the FTE you require as needed.
  • VAR/SP and IGNW determine together the elastic bench time requirements based on the type of client, history of the client and type of engagement.
  • We go to work! We place our resource on your team, provide onboarding through your PMO or project best practices and get billing; this resource is the next best thing to your own.
  • FTE and your customer never knows that this person isn’t on your bench.
