Project lifecycle – an example of how we can help

As multi-industry experts, we can help you in for example launching your retail store chain, establishing your customer service operations or making sure your construction project finishes on time and budget.

Here’s how we can help in different phases of your project or operations lifecycles:

  1. Planning and preparation

    We can be there right from the start, consulting and supporting feasibility studies, finding the right locations and key people for your operations and taking care of all aspects of compliance around permits, regulations and laws.

  2. Setting up and construction

    Recruitment, subcontracting, staffing and payrolling. Health and safety, accommodation, relocation, logistics, waste management, installations – you name it. And if you want us to take care of it all without your own entity, we can be your Employer of Record (EOR).

  3. Operational phase

    Whatever HR, compliance and administration needs you may have, we can be of service. Recruiting, staffing, outsourcing, training, relocation. Health, security, environment, quality (HSEQ). We can also be your warehousing and logistics provider.

If you want to concentrate only on getting results with high quality, our outsourcing services take you a step further than staffing. We can run for example your financial administration, HR, customer service or warehouse fully outsourced.

Here are the benefits:

  1. Better setting for continuous development

    With deeper partnership, our services are tailored to fit better to your processes and we both get transparent data to work on. That makes developing the partnership easier and opens up possibilities for common focus that only outsourcing can.

  2. More cost control for your budget

    Outsourcing makes costs more predictable. Even large variations in needs and seasonality can be managed without unit costs increasing. Scaling up or down? Either way – no problem.

  3. Our full experience working for you

    Every experience we’ve ever gained is working for you. Experience from not only in your industry but others as well. We know what the best practices in outsourcing are now and what’s coming in the future.
