Our Services

In today’s fast-changing IT environment, managing resources is a constant challenge for IT Directors. To meet these demands, building a relationship with a trusted staffing supplier can be an essential component of a successful resourcing department.

QAT Global IT Staffing Solutions specializes in providing contract and permanent IT business and technical resources, particularly in specialist skills areas. We appreciate the importance of having the Right Resource, at the Right Place, at the Right Time – so you can control costs while maximizing profitability. Whether you need additional support for a week or a year, we understand you need more than someone who simply has the technical ability to get the job done. You expect someone you can count on to take your business as seriously as you do. QAT Global gives you a trusted partner who will deliver qualified professional IT resources quickly and efficiently.

Short term IT staffing is a perfect solution for businesses that have frequently changing IT staffing needs. As projects ramp up, we are there to provide the additional technical resources to get the project done on schedule. As project activity slows, QAT Global takes care of transitioning away resources once they are no longer required. QAT Global also handles all of the human resources functions.

A Strong History of IT Staffing

Our track record with our clients is a testament to our ability to deliver flexible, on-demand IT resource solutions. Our recruitment consultants have worked continuously with some of our clients for over 13 years, and we are proud that they continue to use our services. We take the time to ensure we provide the best value without compromising on the quality of our service and resources. QAT Global appreciates the importance of having the Right Resource, at the Right Place, at the Right Time – so you can control costs while maximizing profitability.

A Personal Approach

Our approach to resourcing requirements is not to rely solely on internet job boards. Our first step is to use our extensive network of contacts built up over 20 years in the IT services and staffing recruitment industry. We maintain an exclusive database of IT consultants that have worked for us on assignments internally and externally. We respect the importance of matching the person to the environment. QAT Global will go the extra mile to provide highly qualified consultants that blend into your culture and work well with your team. Our consultants are fully briefed on project requirements before they arrive, and we keep them informed about progress and provide feedback at all times.

Benefits of Our Staffing Solutions

  • Saves significant client time and costs during the recruitment process.
  • The Right Resource, at the Right Place, at the Right Time.
  • The ultimate in staffing flexibility.
  • On demand specialized expertise.
Attracting talented staff is a continuing challenge for IT departments. Today, hiring managers and personnel have an overwhelming number of sources for IT professionals to fill permanent positions from Internet -based job boards – to advertisements – to personal referrals, all of which may generate dozens of potential candidates for one position. IT projects and support operations can potentially be crippled by the days to months it takes to manage the hiring process for all of these candidates. Plus, many of these candidates may not even have the most basic qualifications to fill your position. As the demand for certain skill sets continues to increase while the pool of candidates continues to decrease, being able to act quickly will be ever more imperative. Our long track record in the IT contract resourcing industry makes QAT Global ideally positioned to provide the best pool of candidates for permanent placement, capitalizing on our market knowledge and well-honed recruitment process. We also offer the flexibility to tailor our processes to individual client’s needs and to compensate for changes in the employment market. QAT Global can provide fully screened candidates for positions within days for interviews. After the interviews, your recruiter will follow up to offer the position to the selected candidate, schedule a follow-up interview, or refine the search and set up the next set of candidates.

IT Expertise

Because we have our own solutions division, we can call upon our internal IT professionals to carry out technical assessments before submitting candidates to our clients.

Access to Specialist Skills

We specialize in supplying the highest quality candidates in the following roles, across a broad range of technologies:

  • Business Analyst
  • Chief Technology Officer (CTO)
  • Database Administrator
  • Database Architect
  • Director of IT
  • Help Desk and Technical Support Personnel
  • Information Systems Auditor
  • Mainframe Programmer
  • Network Administrator
  • Network Engineer
  • Programmer
  • Project Managers
  • Software Development and Engineer
  • Software Environment Manager
  • SQL Developer
  • Sr Java Engineer
  • Sr .Net Developer
  • Systems Administrator
  • Systems Analyst
  • Technical Writer
  • Testing Engineer
  • Web Architect

  • CA Gen
  • Web Services
  • Java
  • J2EE (Java EE)
  • .NET, C#, C++
  • Unix / Oracle
  • DB2
While using contract resources has been one of the most effective ways of dealing with peak in workloads, for major projects there is often just as much time and effort spent on maintaining the team at the right levels during the life of the project.

A Different Approach

Managed staffing solutions can support the peaks and troughs of a project and avoids losing that valuable technical and business knowledge that inevitably walks out of the door at the end of the project when using contractors.

Maintain Continuity and Control

Our managed staffing solutions offer the flexibility to increase and decrease resources with expert knowledge to meet the demands of the business. QAT Global takes responsibility for identifying and appointing the appropriate resources during the project, utilizing the blend of our permanent resources and consultants and maintaining continuity across several phases of a project lifecycle.

Key benefits:

  • Reducing risk for the project
  • Cost effective budget controls
  • Reduction in recruitment time and effort
  • Reduction in management time
  • Continuity of technical and business knowledge
  • Working with a trusted partner
We provide workforce and technology assessment services to evaluate currently supported applications along with the skills and resources currently utilized to maintain those applications. From the people to the technology in place, the focus of an assessment is to address the goals of the business today, tomorrow, and far into the future.

Keeping an eye on your strategic plan, we will consider how far into the future to project your Assessment. This includes balancing the certainty of short-range planning against the need to plan for longer-range objectives.

An Assessment typically includes:

  • Strategy Assessment – Review of all pertinent strategic plans and directives and the workforce and technology implications of these plans.
  • Environmental Scan – Conduct an internal and external SWOT analysis and supply and demand analysis.
  • Gap Analysis – Analyze your current talent and technology against short and long term future needs.
  • Gap Closing Strategies – Development of staffing and technology strategies including a competency model for your recruitment and selection, performance management, and training and development strategies.
  • Evaluation – Establish performance measures to determine the success of your assessment.

We feel that it is crucial to conduct a SWOT, Supply and Demand, and Gap Analyses before we recommend and you implement workforce and technology strategies. Organizations often jump directly to implementing gap-closing strategies without understanding the underlying workforce and technology issues, leading to ineffective strategies and wasted resources. Completing these three analyses is a developmental process that puts the tools in place to do ongoing planning and action to ensure a high-quality organization.

Critical Success Factors

By keeping in mind the following factors, your chances of successfully implementing your assessment will be significantly improved.

  • Top management/leadership support.
  • Support from project managers and HR managers.
  • Resource involvement.
  • Timely, accurate, and open communication.
  • Link to other strategic planning processes.
  • Availability of accurate input data.
  • Detailed implementation plans.
  • Keep it simple. Identify those factors that your assessment must address.

QAT Global’s ability to consistently provide excellent customer service and an extensive offering of services and solutions have resulted in significant repeat business from local and international government and commercial organizations.

Recruiting

QAT Global’s recruiting philosophy is to provide high-quality IT professionals to our clients and adhere to a strict process to ensure that the appropriate consultant is identified for each customer requirement. As an IT Services provider founded and managed by former consultants, the fundamental tenets necessary to ensure client satisfaction, be they public or private sector, consistently remain the same. We have several processes in place to ensure that a candidate meets not only QAT Global’s high expectations, but also meet’s the client’s needs.

Specifically, QAT Global’s recruiting processes and procedures are designed to provide information helpful in determining if a candidate is appropriate for us as well as our client, identify interpersonal skills consistent with our client’s expectations and to verify that their technical aptitude meets all qualification requirements. The ability to hit the ground running with real business expertise can be a significant differentiator and enhancement for the typical QAT Global candidate. The screening process in the determination of best-fit candidates is rigorous. QAT Global uses both standard testing procedures and then, when applicable, Question & Answer specifically authored by QAT Global personnel. Employee referrals are also highly encouraged. Like-minded consultants to those already on staff incrementally reduce any question of possible new contractor risk.

QAT Global’s recruiting team meets each morning to assess the developments of the previous day and determine and delegate action items and priorities accordingly. Upon receipt of a new staffing request, they will initially screen internal employees and contacts and within one business day determine what is defined as “Internal Candidate Status.” Ideally, ICS will provide a resource(s) that hold a background like that which the client seeks.

QA Technologies also invests in those databases found to yield the best pool of candidates outside the internal network of the company. Along with those databases most commonly used, QAT Global utilizes a software solution incorporating client, candidate and resume tracking into one relational database. Client management in the system includes profiling, organizational hierarchy, the population of information such as address and contact numbers and the ability to match candidates with related skill sets as requested via the Task Order. We believe that to provide the best possible service we must react quickly, decisively. When Human Resources is forced to step outside ICS, this vehicle provides our recruiters the best odds for finding an experienced IT consultant. The average number of total IT professionals within the database is on average 25,000 plus.

Retention

QAT Global recognizes consultants that clients consider to be “a part of our team” are the most valuable resources our firm provides. To ensure we provide a strong base of qualified consulting resources for our clients, QAT Global takes pride in the retention average of our employees. We offer a competitive benefits package and opportunities to grow within the firm. Promotion from within is fostered and encouraged, and the entrepreneurial spirit prevalent in a significant share of the consultants we have found most successful is itself encouraged within QAT Global. Our focus fosters committed employees who believe in and have seen first-hand the difference superior technology can deliver to the user community. This is a fundamental requirement we stress to all persons considering QA Technologies as an employer. We believe that without this mindset we gravitate toward an everyday contracting concern.

QAT Global’s Human Resources Manager has been with the company since 1999. The role includes the maintaining of close contact with the consultants, ensuring those matters outside the jurisdiction of the day to day technical deliverable responsibilities are being satisfactorily met. Specific examples might include Benefit and Insurance issues, general career path planning, and any miscellaneous support QAT Global may be able to lend to increase employee satisfaction. QAT Global has an exemplary retention rate for foreign national employees. We attribute this success in no small part to the care and diligence taken to ensure smooth transitions to the United States.

Setting employee expectations has been a driving element in keeping QAT Global moving forward. Working together to accomplish set-upon goals, responding to customer issues, enhancing or developing new and innovative ways of doing things, and ultimately delivering for our clients all matter to our company’s overall success.
