5 Partnering Tips that Interactive Agencies and Creative Firms Should Know
Life has never been busier for interactive agencies, design shops and other creative firms who do business on the Internet. It's hard to stay on top of a constantly changing development team, a sales pipeline that is in constant flux and to feel confident that you are consistently delivering the creative vision that your clients care so much for. That's where a partner can make a real difference. For almost a decade, Ameex has been working with companies just like you to provide the flexibility, competitiveness and diverse offerings that can help to ensure you - and your clients - ultimate success.
Here are 5 Partnering Tips that Interactive Agencies, Design Shops and Creative Firms Should Know:
Make Sure You have a Flexible Staffing Model
One of the toughest challenges in running any organization is making sure that your staff is always busy, working productively to deliver your client's projects. Thanks to the asymmetrical nature of today's work schedules, ensuring long stretches of productive work can be difficult to do. Using Ameex's flexible staffing models, you can bring additional resources onto your project to get over a particularly cumbersome stretch of development and feel confident that you can wind the resources down off of the project as needed. This arrangement provides you with the maximum amount of flexibility in keeping your resources fully billable and utilized.
Boost Profit with Competitive Rates for Development Personnel
Let's face it - this is a competitive world that lives and dies by the hard results we produce. Ameex's combination of remote, near-shore and on-site delivery models guarantees you that you are working with a competitive rate card that will drive profit for your projects. Use that profit to bolster overall project profit margins, or to "buy back" additional hours to deal with unexpected development challenges.
Leverage Partners to Allow You to Take on New Work
Interactive agencies and design firms excel at establishing creative visions for their clients. Actually delivering those creative visions can prove to be challenging, especially if the major focus within an organization is creatively minded. Partnering with Ameex provides you the ability to deliver your creative vision on any number of popular CMS platforms - not just the ones you have programmers for. Ameex provides support for both .NET and Open Source-based CMS platforms and has a tremendous amount of experience in working with creative teams to ensure successful delivery of your creative vision.
Find New Ways to Take Care of the Customer After the Launch
Serving customers after the launch of their new web site is a necessary, but not always fun, task. Many development team members prefer to be working on large scale implementation projects, not doing one-off quick fixes, code enhancements and application patches. Ameex offers both a retainer-based reactionary maintenance plan, as well as a proactively-focused managed services plan that takes on all of the post-launch headaches. Using a direct or white labeled approach, Ameex is even able to offer 24x7 global support, complete with Service Level Guarantees, ensuring your customers are happy while your internal developers are productive.
Grow By Expanding your Offerings
