At Allied Worldwide we have some of the most flexible IT resource models in the marketplace today. Our three most popular support models have been built with you, the IT Manager, in mind. They all give you flexible access to the right resource, at the right time, and for the right price. We flex to your needs so when you no longer need the extra resource you can either exit the contract or reduce the resource down to meet your new demands.

Here are three ways we flex around your business needs:

1. Short Term & Interim IT Resource

This resourcing model is particularly good for additional or short-term project work where you don’t have the capacity to resource or where it might impact on core business.

You get access to qualified IT professionals, which we source for you from our existing pool of highly skilled professionals. We deal with the admin and recruitment, so you don’t have to. For example, regardless of the multiple geographical locations you may need to support, we operate from a single P&L which means you only pay for services in one currency. And because they are employed directly by us, all statutory obligations for any short-term project work is managed by us. Since we have such a deep pool of well qualified and highly skilled people, you can engage resources immediately. We have resources in over 40 countries already so no matter where you are based we can mobilise someone to help you straight away.

In other words, you get the skills to suit your business when you need them and with immediate effect without the stress of employment law or regulations.

2. Flexible Resourcing Architecture (FRA) Model

Taking a leaf out the pay-as-you-go model, this option lets you purchase resource credits in advance, to be used as you require at a moment’s notice.

FRA credits can be exchanged over your contract term in exchange for a wide range of skilled individuals who can be deployed in any country, at any time. Credits can be purchased, used and repurchased whenever you like to ensure you always have adequate cover for your ad hoc needs. This model is especially good for relieving the pressure of unexpected staff shortages, IT projects or global roll outs.

Once again you get access to our IT specialists from our global talent pool who have experience in infrastructure management, end-user computing, multi-vendor management and level 1-3 support.
