Whether it’s a 24-month contract, or a 2-day contract, every day we partner exceptional contractors with pioneering companies.
One of our clients, a fraud prevention software provider, had an urgent requirement, for a short-term contractor with .NET expertise to assist them in identifying and rectifying an unexpected issue with one of their products that was due to go live as part of a project in 4 days.
As the deadline for project launch was imminent we had a very tight timeframe in which to find the specialist knowledge they were looking for. With our network of skilled candidates and experience across a wide range of tech specialisms, we were able to find 3 contractors within 6 hours of the clients' initial request.
Not long after the interviews took place, Phani Krishna, an experienced .NET consultant was selected as the best fit for the project. Committing his weekend to ensure the clients' timeline was not impacted, Phani was able to identify and fix the issue and produce a report outlining how the issue arose, how to fix it and how to prevent the same issue in future.
With one day left before the go-live date, Phani’s quick work meant the client had the time to understand the issue and why it occurred, and subsequently were able to launch on time.
“I was approached by Computer Futures regarding an immediate requirement for a .Net consultant. When I expressed my interest Nick Oldridge from Computer Futures arranged an interview and within 24hrs the contract was signed. Computer Futures worked with me to ensure the project was successfully completed in time. They were very helpful from start to finish of the project.” Phani Krishna , .NET Consultant
