Staff outsourcing: a solution in bad times
When times are hard, and despite all their efforts, companies must sometimes resign themselves to put hiring on ice, or to lay off some of the permanent employees, despite the risk that such a decision could bear on Human resources. When obtaining a fixed-term contract or ad oc order following a workforce reduction, the company could find itself suddenly understaffed.
Fortunately, there is a solution for companies in this situation, that allows them to seize these business opportunities and accept such contracts: staff outsourcing. Companies such as Creaform offer this service, which is a way to meet short-term human resources needs while hiring skilled and experienced employees that will offer high performance work.
Creaform has 80 design and engineering experts and 25 experienced applications engineers and metrologists ready to work. We send our employees all around the world, for contracts of varying durations. Each situation is assessed on a case-by-case basis, and Creaform makes it a point of honor to present an action plan that is perfectly adapted to the client’s needs.
Need to 3D scan, but got no money to buy a Handyscan 3D scanner?
No problem. At Creaform, we believe that our scanning technology must be available to all. We feel that your company being on a budget, or having a one time need that doesn’t justify the purchase of a scanner should not prevent it from taking advantage of the Handyscan 3D technology.
This is why Creaform has developed a complete 3D scanning and inspection service offer at competitive pricing, carried out by experienced engineers and metrologists. No matter your constraints or requirements, the service contract will be adapted to your exact needs.
Example of a 3D scanning service project : Creaform went a few times to the plant of Kamik/Genfoot to scan some of the molds they use to manufacture their gumboots. Creaform has delivered .stl files to the manufacturer, on which its own designers are able to work directly. Since it was a project with very limited scope that required only a few hours of work, Creaform’s 3D scanning services were the obvious way to go for the client.
