CLIENT PROFILE

Unpredictable revenue, constant costs - the agency conundrum.

GrowCreate is a Umbraco Gold Partner based in Oxford, UK. DotSee helps GrowCreate scale engineering capacity to meet demand, whilst maintaining quality standards and a collaborative working relationship.

A core business issue of agencies is that projects will fluctuate, as team costs remain constant. Many agencies try to fix this by hiring external resources, however, they face challenges in terms of availability, quality — and culture compatibility.

CHALLENGE

Outsourcing is a disaster. Embedded teams are the key

Many agencies have tried outsourcing to keep costs lower, however that fails more often than not. Embedded teams offer a much better model:

Long-term partnerships

Given enough time, teams develop a common language and work gets done more efficiently and effortlessly.

Collaborative culture

Different companies have different ambitions, but close partnerships help teams create a collaborative culture.

Maintaining quality

Working with larger organisations, maintaining quality standards is critical, for internal or external teams.
