Having outsourced resources and consultants work alongside your on-site team provides additional support and boosts overall performance.

On-site teams along with the support of outsourced resources can reduce the time for production. Thus, outsourcing reduces the time for deliverables. Quicker deliveries result in improved customer/client satisfaction.
- Increased Profits
Lower cost resources lead to reduced operational costs which in turn results in higher profit margins. It is more cost effective to bring on resources as needed than it is to hire a full time employee.
Reputed outsourcing agencies follow strict guidelines when it comes to quality deliverables. Working with one of these particular vendors assures timely and quality results.
Having a hard time finding skilled resources domestically? You’re not alone. Outsourcing provides you access to skilled resources across the globe.
In today’s competitive world, downtime is not an option. Outsourcing provides the ability to be available round-the-clock, eliminating any potential downtime.
International presence typically involves having physical offices and resources in a foreign country. Working with an outsourcing provider allows you to go global without needing a true presence overseas.

Recently we spoke with Branch Manager Ryan Sturgis about working out of the Downtown Chicago market. Previously, it was left up to Oak Brook to handle the Downtown market but, given particular trends and changes in the market, it became imperative to expand to the city.
Iain McDavid: How did the Downtown Chicago team come about?
Ryan Sturgis: Well Downtown Chicago is very, very different in terms of the talent it’s yielding. And given trends with how newer generations and the new workforce are living: Most of them are staying in city. Especially the top technologist, they’re not moving out to the suburbs. Conversely, our original IBS Oak Brook was primarily suburban focused. Continue reading “IBS Office Highlight: Downtown Chicago”

When a user attempts to log into their SharePoint site and gets a “Not found in SharePoint Directory” error, this usually means that the user received the External User invite at one email address, but used a different email address to accept the invite. When this occurs, the only fix is to remove all occurrences of both the user’s accounts (invite and acceptance) on the SharePoint site, explain the error to the user and how to properly accept the invite, then re-send the invite.
NOTE: In order to remove the email accounts of the external user, the person performing this task must have Site Collection Administration rights.
I’ve got a bit of a problem when it comes to job interviews. I go in with confidence and I usually interview well until the very end when the manager asks me if I have any questions and then I just freeze.

Ouch. I’ve got to be honest – more often than not, a blunder like this can certainly cost you a job. There’s more than likely a candidate who interviewed just as well (or slightly worse/better) who asked a poignant question that impressed the hiring managers.
The interviewer doesn’t ask that question to be polite—they are trying to gauge your interest, and see how informed you are about the opportunity. It’s not uncommon to have freeze up, but you have to be able to push past this crucial moment. You have to anticipate the question and be prepared for it.

I think I just made a huge mistake. I quit my previous job because a new opportunity came up, but this new position is not at all what I signed up for…what are my options?
This is a great question. People nowadays bounce around from job to job more frequently than they did 10, 20 years ago. In light of this fact it only makes sense that a person might find themselves in position that they’re unhappy with. Sure, we all have had a boring job before, but most of which we are able to “stick out “until we find something else. Every once in a while though we wind up in a position that turns out to be terrible fit. Is this an accurate description of your situation? If so, continue reading!
