ELASTIC WORKFORCE®

Grow and shrink your engineering workforce instantly, on demand, without any recruiting costs or long lead times.

What is Elastic Workforce®?
Why Elastic Workforce®?

Recruiting, screening, interviewing, onboarding, training and retaining engineering talent can take over four months and cost over $65,000 per engineer.

Software engineers in the US stay with an employer on average less than two years.

With Elastic Workforce® by INNOVANT, you can grow and shrink your engineering workforce instantly, on demand, without any recruiting costs or long lead times.

The right talent, in the right place, at the right time, is the equation for success in today’s world.

A few leading companies are rethinking their entire approach to finding and using talent. They are embracing more flexible, blended workforce models, where they can expand or contract their access to specialized, highly skilled workers, as and when needed.

These companies have learned from their early pilots and are now moving to the next level: adopting a strategic approach to an on-demand workforce, one that eventually has the potential of even transforming their business models.

What our clients say about us

We offer our customers a strategic advantage

Innovant is truly part of our team. We began by outsourcing a few Android developer positions, but over time they were so capable that we bought on Innovant staff for full-stack web, software architect, devops, QA and even scrum master.
They’re not just part of the team anymore, they are the team!

James Ryan, Chief Operating Officer – Brain Power

We have worked with INNOVANT for the past 3 1/2 years. Over that time, they have been instrumental in the creation of our product, especially as it relates to UI/UX design and software development work. They have an incredibly talented team of engineers who have a keen understanding of what it takes to make great products and also of how to work effectively with us as a team and to really understand our business. As consummate professionals, they are highly responsive and dependable, having pulled through many tight deadlines under an oftentimes extremely demanding schedule.

I cannot recommend them enough. It has been truly delightful to work with them, and I look forward to partnering with them in the future.

Samir Rajguru, CEO – Swarmsales

With INNOVANT, we were able to make a very significant qualitative leap in the organization, becoming more efficient in daily operations, saving time and costs, and allowing us to focus and dedicate quality time to personalized and differential customer service.

They are a fresh, professional company with a deep knowledge of technological trends worldwide, which generates confidence and security that they are meeting the demands of today’s challenging and globalized world. The transparency and the flexibility they have in order to achieve the desired result are great strengths to highlight. I would work with them again without hesitation.

Andrea Azar, Corporate Business Development – Grupo RAS

 

I would recommend them because the focus of the entire company is always to deliver solutions that help the user, and that these solutions are the best for the end user. This is not always the case in software, where often more importance is placed on the technical part than on the business / client side.

Working with INNOVANT has allowed us to advance in terms of technology, adapting to what is required in the market.

Towards the future we now have a tool which is friendly towards the end user, it is seen as accessible, maintainable, and easy and fast to update with new functionalities that are required.

Federico Tejera Graña, Product Owner Trace – TOPAZ, Stefanini
