Fairfield Residential LLC is a leader in the multifamily home industry and has consistently ranked among the largest multifamily home developers, builders and redevelopers nationwide. As a privately held, fully integrated, real estate operating company, Fairfield provides acquisition, construction, development, redevelopment, property management, and asset management services to its clients. Fairfield’s property management operations encompass almost 55,000 apartment homes.
To offer its full range of product offerings and serve a broad, coast-to-coast geographic market, Fairfield Residential has built and maintained a comprehensive technology infrastructure that incorporates a number of industry-specific software applications. Ensuring these mission-critical applications run seamlessly—24 hours a day, 7 days a week—requires the services of hard-to-find product knowledge experts. In 2006, Fairfield began to have difficulty sourcing specialists to implement, maintain and support its customized software. They needed expert talent, and needed it fast.
Fairfield turned to KoreOne for staffing assistance when an exhaustive nine-month search for a Yardi support technician yielded no suitable candidates. KoreOne responded within one week with three qualified candidate. One was selected for the three month, contract-to-hire position. Based on the contractor’s proficiency, he quickly became the lead technician and was hired by Fairfield.
It wasn’t only KoreOne’s ability to quickly deliver candidates on a seemingly impossible to fill requirement that impressed Fairfield. It was also KoreOne’s earnest and detailed approach to doing business, and ability to drill down to the precise technical and cultural requirements of the position.
Word of KoreOne’s rapid and on-target delivery spread quickly throughout Fairfield’s IT Department. Soon KoreOne was fulfilling requirements from the director of applications and director of IT for a wide variety of skilled professionals including network administrators, project coordinators, business analysts, data warehouse administrators, Crystal Report® writers and PC technicians.
KoreOne’s high level of service and ability to quickly identify highly qualified technical professionals has earned Fairfield’s respect and trust. KoreOne is now Fairfield’s #1 vendor. “KoreOne has provided me with invaluable employees that I’d be lost without,” Said Carissa Steele, Fairfield’s help desk manager. “The consultants they delivered have made a big difference in our ability to get the job done.”
