Agile talent solutions through FASTBench

With pressure to optimise resources and reduce costs, it becomes almost impossible to have all of the human resources you require all of the time. When an increase in demand for your services means you require the rapid deployment of additional talent, you need a trusted partner that you can rely on to provide expertise while complementing your existing team.

Whether you’re going through a transformation, a migration, or embarking on a new project, NP Group’s Technology Professional Services FASTBench methodology will ensure that you have the right resources at the right time. Blending pre-formed consulting teams with pre-defined deliverables provides a balance that produces outcomes to projects faster and more cost effectively than other professional services firms.

What is FASTBench?

FASTBench’s proven, scalable methodology provides tailored solutions for organisations needing rapid access to additional resources, whatever the reason.

We deliver:

  • A pool of pre-qualified and proven resources
  • On-demand, specialist skills providing a solution to a skills gap
  • The ability to extend the capability of the service provider or vendor
  • A rapid solution that allows our clients to meet the demands of business
  • A way to eliminate the need for employment costs
