About the Customer

This customer is a global leader in claims management. They collaborate with hundreds of organizations to help manage the care of injured or disabled staff. Additional services include providing workers’ compensation, liability and disability services, and other claims management support.


The customer needed to meet resource demands of their business partners, and finding a blend of skilled, cost-effective talent was proving difficult. Operating under a tight budget, the organization required seasoned professionals to act as a temporary alternative until funds could be allocated for full-time employees (FTEs).

The customer needed to:

  • Meet immediate technical needs by business partners
  • Source skilled and cost-effective talent in development, QA, and testing
