STA was founded as Strategic Technology Associates at the turn of the millennium by a Senior Consulting Industry Executive whose professional background and personal experience drove the development of a series of tenets by which STA does business:
- STA’s low cost structure allows us to operate at lower margins and thus provide lower pricing to our clients, while at the same time offering competitive pay rates to our consultants. Today’s competitive marketplace will not tolerate the high billing rates necessitated by excessive margin stacking. STA’s fair and equitable approach to pricing contributes to their client’s ability to enhance overall project and business profitability.
- STA thoroughly scrutinizes and stands behind the resources they provide assuming responsibility for performance, and fit with the overall project or departmental team. There’s typically little room for error built into today’s IT budget and thus STA stays involved to assure their resources contribute by providing high value throughout the duration of their assignment.
- STA does not compete with their clients for the same market opportunities. We exist to serve a specifically defined “wholesale” market and thus deliberately do not pursue not our clients’ “retail customers. The perpetual fear of introducing a contractor to a project team and ending up with all or a portion of the project deferred away by you customer going direct to the same, or other lower priced resources, is virtually eliminated.
STA’s business model has been well received and our growing success continues to expand our purview and influence in the IT staffing community. Our national presence and unique multi-tiered referral program provide extensive access to the best available resources in the timeliest manner. Due to the nature of our clients’ business, STA’s consultants are offered the opportunity to work on some of the most challenging IT assignments enabling them to stay at the top of their game and current in the latest technologies. The number of consecutive and extended assignments we prosper from serves as further assurance of the effectiveness of our approach to doing business.
