The client and challenge
A worldwide leader in IT that helps companies seize the opportunities of tomorrow by proving that amazing things can happen when you connect the previously unconnected. Our client required diagnostics and validation testing support for its products, which include routers and switches, and faced a number of challenges in fulfilling that work. The work requires hard-to-find engineers, and internal cost pressures coupled with the war for talent made it even more difficult to successfully recruit the employees. To meets its needs, our client was managing multiple vendors, resulting in increased management oversight.
