By expanding their capacity with Salesforce Commerce Cloud staff augmentation, brands and retailers can tag in specialized forces and resources to extend their ability to carry out successful projects.
Salesforce Commerce Cloud staff augmentation responds to the growing demand for specific and specialized skills within the ecommerce landscape.
Particularly in development, demand ebbs and flows from year to year and even month to month depending on the specific needs of brands and retailers, and what they’re trying to achieve digitally.
But why, specifically, is staff augmentation a good fit for Salesforce Commerce Cloud, and what are the benefits? Let’s dive into some of the advantages of expanding your SFCC capacity.
SFCC staff augmentation can give businesses the chance to customize their processes to fit their needs.
You have the ability to decide the best team to work on your project that fits your particular criteria, timeframe, and needs. Plus you have the ability to handle the contractors with the methods that your business prefers.
This means there is no need to establish separate management styles – one for full-time employees and one for the staff aug team.
If you’re thinking about hiring a full-time employee, it may not always be reachable and lie within the boundaries of a business’ budget. There are added costs associated with this, such as training, insurance, PTO, etc.
For businesses wanting to skip around this budgetary issue, staff augmentation provides an ideal alternative for hiring specialized workers without the hidden costs involved. You simply pay for the work they do.
Salesforce Commerce Cloud admins focus on their work while overseeing the responsibilities of the project, yet without having the hassle of organizing admin duties and employment arrangements as the size of the team scales.
Staff augmentation best fits with short-term and medium-term projects, which provides companies the flexibility to have the right team for the right project.
Originally, staff augmentation emerged to provide answers for issues such as tight budget constraints, limitations in full-time hiring, and short-time resource issues.
If a staff aug team does a great job, and their work becomes valuable to the company, then it becomes difficult to simply say goodbye to those experts that have brought success. And over that short amount of time they have demonstrated their worth.
So one question that comes up often under these circumstances is “How to keep staff members – along with their skills – while also onboarding new skills into the team?
Despite being employed for specific, shorter periods of time, when projects end there is a tendency for staff aug contracts to be extended – particularly when the internal knowledge of tech and processes increase.
