Skinit offers the largest product line of branded vinyl coverings (skins) for personal electronic devices, including cell phones, digital music devices, PCs, computers, gaming consoles and much more. Among the images Skinit’s products feature are major music artists, top sports teams, movies and universities. Skinit also runs eCommerce sites for leading Fortune 500 companies such as Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Verizon and Sprint that offer skins as product accessories.
A significant increase in product offerings and skyrocketing interest in its branded vinyl skins created an urgent need for Skinit to enhance its on-line ordering process to make the customer buying experience faster and easier. In addition, Skinit was receiving requests for eCommerce site development and back-end systems management from a growing number of businesses.
In order to quickly complete a comprehensive web site redesign and upgrade, support the future expansion of its web site, and provide expert eCommerce site development, Skinit needed to hire experienced web design and development resources — and fast. A ‘lean and mean’ start up company, Skinit’s IT organization consisted of three overtaxed professionals just barely able to keep up with technology demands. With no human resource function, the CTO had no internal resources to turn to for hiring assistance and critical roles to fill.
Skinit turned to KoreOne based on its reputation for fast and accurate delivery of talented IT professionals. Working in partnership with Skinit, KoreOne quickly got up to speed on the company’s environment and precise technical needs, and incorporated a detailed Skinit questionnaire into its interviewing process.
The results were immediate and impressive. Of the 16 qualified candidates KoreOne submitted for key technical openings, five were hired. “The consultants KoreOne provided were able to jump in and quickly provide us with sorely needed assistance. Once hired, KoreOne’s candidates were fully up to speed and productive within less than one week,” said Darryl Kuhn, Skinit’s CTO. “We’re using KoreOne resources for every facet of our web development needs, from complex engineering tasks to quality assurance and everywhere in between. These individuals are now integral members of our team and provide huge value to Skinit.” As a result of its on-target talent delivery and service excellence, KoreOne is now Skinit’s exclusive IT staffing provider. “KoreOne is responsive, communicative, and very good at what they do,” concluded Kuhn.
