In all companies, big or small, there are different departments. Every one of them has a job to carry out and between them all is an invisible thread that holds it all together: the project, the job at hand or a product…
Engineering takes form in many areas of the company: I+D, quality or production to just name a few. If in many business they outsource marketing, then why not engineering too?
In this post we’re going to outline the five main reasons why you should, at the least, think about outsourcing an expert team in engineering. And, if by the end of this blog post we’ve convinced you, we invite you to contact us with no strings attached to see how we can help you.
What is a team of engineers?
An engineering team is made up of a group of qualified professionals with experience in various industries, whose mission is to make your job easier.
It’s a pool of human, technical and professional resources all at your complete disposal. Straight from the word go, the team will integrate into your project taking on the roles, responsibilities and tasks they are assigned: from graphic design and calculations; the user manuals and technical documents; prototypes and testing phases all the way through to integrated quality standards.
This team exists to reach the objectives of the project. They solve problems quickly and without interfering with the deadlines (when possible!). It’s a new concept of engineering.
Let’s take a look at the reasons for and advantages of outsourcing an engineering team for your company.
Las 5 ventajas de subcontratar
a un equipo de ingenieros
Puedes estar a favor o en contra de subcontratar según qué tareas de la empresa, pero seguro que después de leer estas cinco ventajas, estarás de acuerdo que contratar a un equipo de ingenieros es la mejor decisión que podrás tomar.
1. Taking the pressure off the project manager
Everybody knows that the project manager endures enormous amounts of stress and pressure when the project is underway.
Being a leader, keeping up with deadlines, dealing with and organising the team, supervising and checking the work… the list is never-ending! And, if on top of all that we add the mammoth task of supervising the engineering team too with all that goes with it…
Obviously there are people who can take on all of this, and much more. But in modern companies in today’s society, wouldn’t it be more efficient to outsource a team of professional engineers?
You would be working hand in hand with a highly qualified team that is organised and motivated – the best way to control the design timelines, production and testing all the way up to the final hand over day.
2. Unlimited access to tools
In your company we’re sure that you’ve got various different computer programmes, databases, human resource management systems…
But have you thought about which programmes you would need to do our job? We have, and they are entirely at your disposal whilst we work for you.
We use the latest design and management programmes so that you don’t have to worry about a thing. We bring all of the resources within our reach and scope to the table to improve and increase the strengths, competition and profits of our customers.
It’s exactly the same idea with the human resources. Our team is ready to work for you and deliver on your projects. Calculate the cost of hiring five expert engineers for the duration of your project… and then what? The delivery and follow up are just as important and we will accompany you throughout the entire journey. We offer a close working relationship that other engineering consultants can’t offer as well as the flexibility that your own personal team find difficult to provide you with.
3. Specific projects
Imagine that you have a certain project in mind and that you need an engineer for a determined amount of time. What would you do?
You have three good options: leave the project on one side and pick it up again in the future; contract one or two engineers for your company or, the third option would be to outsource an expert team of professional engineers to carry out your project.
Yes, that’s right. It doesn’t matter how long you need us for. We will adapt to your project and we will work for and with you the time it takes to get it done.
4. Lower the costs
The money factor influences a lot of decisions in the corporate world. We mentioned before that the cost of having five engineers on your pay roll would be fairly high. If you add that to the cost of the software and technical resources needed, your project costs are going to sky-rocket.
For a unique price, you would have all of this and more at your disposal to complete that project you’ve always wanted to do.
We take care of the manufacturing of pieces, time-management on the deliveries, team coordination so that you can take over what matters the most. The money that you would be saving by outsourcing you can invest into other areas of your company to keep growing.
5. Peace of mind
There are lots of advantages to outsourcing a team of engineers like Your Team Engineering. We can work together to implement quality and management systems, work with the I+D+I department, improve the process of production, etc. But on this occasion we’ve given you the most important reasons why that will have the most impact on your company.
