We're back to announce our continued creation of technical solutions alongside our valued partners. Indeed, we bring together key stakeholders from the software development and cloud ecosystem into a single platform via an integrated marketplace. This is the crux of our Builder Capacity Partner program. And in case you didn’t know about it already, here's a breakdown for you, Builders!
First, development shops compete in a price sensitive market with pressures from both competitors and customers to continuously reduce their prices. The second issue uncovers conversations with clients and the resulting potential losses that result--starting from the beginning of working relationships with incomplete specifications from clients and continuing with client frustration of inaccurate delivery dates. The third issue we’ve heard from Capacity Partners includes the costly price tag of global sales teams and resources needed to acquire new business. Fourth, oftentimes, our Capacity Partners face consistent employee churn and poaching of clients from competitors (or even former employees). Lastly, for many of our Capacity Partners, they’ve experienced an opportunity loss of business due to lack of developers in their network.
How does the Capacity Partner network solve challenges faced by our partners? Through 5 ways specifically including:
#1 Our Capacity Partners get more business
Instead of development shops finding their business through networking alone or through subcontracting, we can provide an alternative with a steady steam of business to our Capacity Partners.
#2 We help our Capacity Partners monetize their developers’ otherwise wasted time
Our Capacity Partners can work to capacity (versus paying software developers to work full-time and not necessarily providing a full-time work load). This goes as well for designers and other creatives as well as Q/A professionals.
#3 Our Capacity Partners get access to expanded technical (and creative) teams
Just because some development shops only have a small in-house team doesn’t mean they have to be limited to those team members solely. They have access to our talented pool of technical resources to reduce the opportunity loss for any new project. For Capacity Partners, this is an opportunity to not just earn more revenue, but also to experience and engage in new form of software delivery.
#4 Our Capacity Partners can more from each project
Instead of building the same software over and over and over, teams can reuse our library of code for upcoming projects. This means development shop Capacity Partners can make the most of each project. We commit to deliver projects for our customers using our library of pre-built components and unique approach to spec’ing and estimation.
#5 Increase customer satisfaction
Instead of extended conversations alongside static specifications, our real-time specifications offer clients a clear deliverable and transparent deadline for their software development. This can provide clearer client expectations of final deliverables and ultimately improve the process. To date, we have over 140 capacity partners with 2,000+ creators available to work on dream projects of all the global Builders out there.
Our Capacity Partnership team is looking to welcome more partners to the ecosystem every week, and we’re keen to find development shops who could benefit from our marketplace. Our goal is to ensure the ready availability of quality Creators at all times (and across all time zones) to meet the rapidly growing demand for tailor-made software development. We like to keep it simple and straight-forward. After a short registration, Capacity Partners are invited to onboard individual Creators onto the Builder Capacity Partner platform.
We then assess each of these Creators on various quality parameters to ensure that we have only the best Creators in our network. Shout-out to not just development shops but also to independent designers, developers and Q/A professionals out there globally!
