Augmenting an existing in-house IT team with a team extension of nearshored software developers to ensure a stable workforce can be a challenge. How to manage standard on-site procedures like daily stand-up meetings when one or several developers are 1000km away? How to ensure the remote team understand the wishes and needs of the business when it is not possible to talk face to face on a daily basis?
As the lack of experienced resources becomes a constraint for business it is important organisations understand how to set up remote teams efficiently. With 20+ years of IT outsourcing experience, K&C gained experience of the pitfalls around remote efficiency and coordination and how to overcome them long before they were forced on most companies in 2020.
We have implemented German management standards and Agile processes across all K&C activities. And we make sure that every project starts with well-planned and effective onboarding. As a result, the integration of K&C developers into in-house teams works seamlessly.
Our client here is Valiton – a German IT service provider to a large media holding based in Offenburg and Munich. K&C’s team augmentation worked on Valiton’s harbourmaster white label digital media platform. The goal of the project is to analyze user behaviour on the media portals run by Harbourmaster tenants, allowing them to better target users with relevant and personalised offers.
Team size: 2 Business Owners, 8 engineers.
