With a desire to win bigger projects and maximise the contribution to the rapidly growing market, Zest, previously known as Staffcare, decided to outsource an element of its engineering and development to increase their IT capabilities.
We work very closely with Zest in true cooperation and partnership, handling development and testing on a daily basis and adding new functionalities to adjust applications to the needs of Zest’s clients. The partnership has been so successful that Zest is now one of Future Processing’s longest standing customers.
The main business problem for our client was lack of readily available internal resources. In the course of our long-standing partnership, Future Processing provided highly scalable teams, allowing Zest to take on more projects, supporting their growth and helping to build a competitive advantage.
We’ve been working with Future Processing for five years and absolutely they’ve become a part of our team, the cooperation is seamless. We’ve undertaken and successfully delivered projects we simply couldn’t have tackled with our own employees, within shorter timeframes than we could ever have dreamed of. Future Processing’s staff has directly liaised with our customers, and been seen as an extension of our own team. I’d recommend them at any time.
