SYSTEMS 3000 needed to find a team of qualified professionals with the right skills and cultural fit, without the high cost and time-drain

SYSTEMS 3000 is a company rooted in innovation and reliability, serving over 250 New Jersey School Districts. Renowned for delivering top-tier Accounting, Payroll, and Personnel software solutions, the time had come to transition from the limitations of desktop applications to web-based functionality. They had been trying to do this through freelance developers, but that had proved costly and ineffective.

In search of an alternative to freelancers, SYSTEMS 3000 was looking for a solution that would bypass the issues with reliability, project cohesion, and the lack of a unified team effort. They needed a partner capable of assembling a team of qualified professionals who would work on enhancing their software applications with the smoothness of a web-based solution, ensuring an intuitive user experience ー and achieving this without the high costs and time-sink typically associated with traditional recruitment.

The AnchorzUp approach:
combining competence and cultural fit

SYSTEMS 3000 needed a team that was not just skilled but symbiotic with their culture and vision. AnchorzUp provided a tailored staff outsourcing solution that was swift, cost-effective, and above all, precise.

AnchorzUp  identified, vetted, and outsourced competent professionals with the right cultural fit ー fast and cost-effectively

Once we had a clear picture of SYSTEMS 3000’s core needs, we began the recruitment process. After combing through applications, vetting applicants, and conducting a few rounds of interviews, the best candidates were selected and recommended to SYSTEMS 3000 to join their team. The resulting team had a composition of front-end, back-end, and full-stack developers, and a UI/UX designer.

While working directly with SYSTEMS 3000, the developers contracted by AnchorzUp work together as a team in modern workstations set up at AnchorzUp’s offices. The employment benefits provided by AnchorzUp include regular training, career development programs, health insurance, team-building retreats, and more. This supportive ecosystem not only attracts skilled professionals but also inspires their best performance and fosters their development. Ensuring continuous growth for the outsourced professionals means SYSTEMS 3000 benefits from a team that’s always advancing, providing a dynamic, innovative, and adaptable workforce ready to meet the evolving demands of the software industry.

Our A to Z staff outsourcing process provided fast, efficient, and cost-effective solutions for scaling the SYSTEMS 3000 team. We handle all complexities of recruitment and management, relieving SYSTEMS 3000 of potential financial strains which is a significant advantage of choosing our outsourcing solutions.

SYSTEMS 3000 started by outsourcing one developer and went on to outsource an entire team

SYSTEMS 3000 grew their team progressively as they started to see the gains of the new partnership. Together with the team, the management model also evolved. While in the beginning the developers were working directly with SYSTEMS 3000, the team grew big enough to also have a project manager sitting with them at the AnchorzUp offices.

This partnership success also shows the scaling flexibility provided to SYSTEMS 3000, who shifted from needing a single developer to building a comprehensive team through outsourcing with AnchorzUp.

In contrast to hiring multiple freelancers, they have an accountable team that is solely invested in the work for SYSTEMS 3000.

The team takes care of every aspect of the project, and collaborates for better results, all while communicating updates and sharing knowledge directly to SYSTEMS 3000.

A partnership that speaks volumes

“AnchorzUp has been instrumental in our journey to revamp our software and meet our growing business needs. They helped us rapidly expand our team while managing costs. The full-time professionals we outsourced with AnchorzUp have already become an integral part of our team.”

They don’t just execute tasks, but go beyond their roles, ideating ways to enhance user navigation and suggesting improvements for a user-friendly final product that meets SYSTEMS 3000’s objectives.

They ideated, designed, and continuously refined the products, always with a focus on intuitive user interactions and enhanced functionality. Their suggestions and insights have led to design choices that significantly improved the end-user experience.
