Finding the right business partners: Clutch.co
In the IT world, collaborating with an IT partner is a quick and easy way for companies to get access to the skills, technology, people, and expertise they are after. Yet finding a trusted tech partner may seem daunting. How to start looking for one? Here’s a great tip!
A global shift
Research by NTT Services confirms that as much as 45% of global corporations plan to increase outsourcing in the recent years.
The main reasons why companies look for trusted partners and consultants to work on important projects are the cost-effectiveness of such a solution and easy access to the pool of talented and experienced candidates with the new technology it guarantees. The deal is clear, but only if the partners you decide to work with are trustworthy. If not, outsourcing may become a nightmare and you may not get all the benefits. This is why finding the right company to work with is of key importance if you want your projects to be successful.
How to find the best partner for your company?
When thinking about finding the best partner or consultant to work with, the first thing that comes to mind is looking on Google. Sounds easy but google “IT services outsourcing” and you will get so many results there is no way you can go through all of them. You can try to find some articles about the best options available, but many of them are sponsored, so getting credible information is difficult.
Another challenge arises when you look for clients’ reviews: many websites publish just positive ones, and some companies use sponsored publications and paid endorsements, so finding impartial opinions is nearly impossible.
There is also an independent platform that focuses on presenting solution providers and on publishing as much information about them as possible, including reviews. It’s called Clutch.co.
