Catering to the new shift in IT industry of reducing bench resources
Typically, as most persons are familiar, Just in time is an inventory management method for materials and goods to be available “On Demand” or be replenished as required in the production process.
The general perception is that this method is most suitable for companies and industries where repetitive manufacturing functions are involved and are beneficial when the tasks involved are on an assembly plant or a job floor. However, with the rise of Information Technology and the advent of service-based businesses in the last one and a half decades, this has become an established practice in the IT circles too.
With a growing industry but season based demand for example in case of service businesses, it is highly time-consuming to build, maintain and manage the turnover of developers inventory through the traditional candidate pipelines. Moreover, despite the time and efforts put in it is not always as value adding for either the firm or the client since many software developers remain as Bench Resources in wait for a project and are a preventable cost to the company.
“Benched Resources” by definition are software developers who are waiting to get the project(s) to work upon. While these are important assets for the firm, it is also crucial to note that Benched Resources do not bring in revenues till such time that they get a project and hence remain more of a cost to the company. On the one hand, in situations or seasons where there are no or limited projects with the firm, it considers trimming down resources on the bench and on the other, the fact that he/she is waiting on the bench and a trim-down possibility can be demoralizers for the resource. Bench Resources were considered as the key strength of the Indian IT industry for a long time. However, with the increasing popularity and relevance of Developers being available on demand for short and fixed-term contracts, the environment is different. Added to this is the rise in automation and all these factors have reduced the average bench strength from 8% to 4% in recent years.
“Great vision without great people is irrelevant.” – Jim Collins, Author of Good to Great
How can IT companies then maximize the value for both the software developers as well as the company with appropriate planning and work allocation?
This is where Developers on-demand model comes into the picture. Traditionally, firms build and maintain candidate pipelines without an actual need but with developers on-demand model, IT companies are able to hire candidates that exactly match the needs or requirements of the project, at the time when they want them, in the appropriate number and at a mutually agreed cost or fees. Albeit, this does not provide the safety of the traditional candidate pipeline approach yet it is more targeted and rewarding. Also, with the advent of gig economy, business models where services are traded on the basis of access rather than ownership are picking up.
In some cases, many companies consider outsourcing projects for a specific duration when they want to focus on their core businesses. Many IT companies today send their benched resources to other companies for a project. In this way, the companies are able to leverage expertise from multiple talents for specific projects and also better utilize the available resources by sending them for specific projects outside.
Given below are some benefits of Developers On demand method.
- This is a pull system where the resource is pulled or utilized based on a need or demand. This permits IT companies to cover the staff requirement without having excess human inventory.
- Developer on Demand faster resource replenishment and lesser burden on the human resource department of the company.
- Developer on Demand model gives companies flexibility and convenience to get access to different talents which are existing across the industry. Moreover, since resources can be found quickly (usually within 24 hours) there is increased productivity and less slack time.
- This approach reduces the overall cost to the company, increases efficiency, productivity and saves on crucial organization time.
“The smartest business decision you can make is to hire qualified people. Bringing the right people on board saves you thousands, and your business will run smoothly and efficiently.” – Brian Tracy
With so many advantages on the table, still one cannot nullify the importance of having some benched resources in this industry. Resources which specialize in certain skills and are high on performance are contracted so that they can be called upon as needed
The Developers on-demand model is beneficial as it makes underused software developers, both tangible and intangible. If companies come together and start sharing their underused resources or services, this will decrease cost and also will make sure that every resource is rightly utilized.

A coding challenge hosted by the Team “iView Crafters”
With such a successful event of Hackathon 2018, the idea of Hackathon Dobara was an exciting event for us and this time iView Avengers decided to go one on one. As soon as the date was announced, the eagerness to compete and bring out life to our burning ideas increased. The goal was not just being a refreshment, but also learning vanguard technologies and pushing past limits. The problem statement of the event was decided as “To create Developer on Demand system”.
“If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.” —Benjamin Franklin
I, amongst some of the other developers, was new to the environment of Hackathon. An expression of curiosity and excitement could be seen on our faces. The enthusiasm spread amongst everyone. Finally, the day came, and the combat began at 11:00 am. With high spirits and confidence, the minds of our developers started churning.
After a little bit of coding and lots of thinking, came the discussion part. One by one, everyone projected their doings and conveyed their thought process. Every developer had a different perspective and approach towards the job. Our senior android developer mentioned that developers are already present in the market, but to find one which matches the requirement is the real issue here. To solve this issue, he suggested that a business model should be created which has bidding dialectics. Further explaining, he said that a company can post their projects and developer with the highest bidding would get hired. Next came our full stack developer, according to him there are many developers but it would be confusing to choose the right candidate for the job. He created a single interface like a chatbot where you just need to type in your requirements and let the chatbot take care of the rest. His basic notion here was a simple UI and powerful backend. “If the backend is powerful, we will get astonishing results”, he said.
Finally, I presented my thoughts. I recommended that by assigning ranks to developers, the quality of their work could be judged.“Initially, everyone will have 0 rankings, how is one supposed to choose then?”, a counter question was thrown at me. An excellent question to which I answered that we can create a testing portal where one can appear for a test suitable to his/her experience level and get ranked accordingly. Once they get ranked through our website, those rankings would also be visible. The discussion was concluded and it was time to declare results.
It was mind-blowing to see how everyone has something new in their projects. It was like a recipe made with a special ingredient. “Developer on Demand” was an interesting and elegant topic where we, “the developers”, could judge on what basis a company would hire a developer for a required period of time. With the mindset of a developer, the idea was to get as much work as possible. Trying to get in the shoes of companies head, the purpose solely was to get the best developer suited for their project.
“If you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for the ordinary.” –-Jim Rohn
A developer can think of every scenario possible in a project and will definitely provide a solution for the same. The ideas were so different and magnificent in their whole that the result of the Hackathon was declared and everyone won. Cheerful roars were heard and everyone applauded for themselves. The whispers of friendly spats made everyone giggle.
How amazingly everyone participated and crafted eye-catching and mind-blowing ideas in just a few hours.
Team iView again proved its potential and that given any problem, we Avengers will suit up and fire our best tincture.
Cheers to the Hackathon and with a strong vision to take it to the next level!

On Demand Cab Booking is a state of art Cab or Taxi booking platform.
Target market: Fleet Management Companies, Car Rental Companies, Logistics Companies.
Why On-demand Taxi booking is an important and utmost priority for booking the cab online?
With many enterprises functioning the area of the Fleet Rentals and Car rentals or truck rentals, it is very important for them to make sure that their cars, fleet, and assets can be booked online. Having this done they need a very strong reliable platform to alleviate their business online and free them from the hassle of booking cabs online using the traditional way of calling and going through the call centers. We had an interesting case study of a company based out in Ghana, the entrepreneur from the logistics domain had all his business domain of booking the cabs on telephone and cash collections done manually. With having no online cab booking solutions the company had never a chance to grow the business and was in the same mode since years and they had a marginal growth which has been observed. This made them operational issues such as loosing out the valued customers, loosing out the drivers who were brought in mode cash for the company, missing our assets on the road and fuel theft and cash shortfall issues.
Moreover, the users in the city lacked the great public transport system and online cab booking solutions such as Uber, Lyft was also now able to cover the market out there.
Online cab booking system solves the problems of 3 stakeholders.
- the drivers: by making them drive with pride – they are now official partners of the Cab Management or Taxi Rental companies.
- the riders: they are now happy because their solution to the cab booking is easy and on the go. They are now pocket light since they do not have to shell our the hassles of having their own cab and now can book the cab online through the platform and be hassle free.
- the enterprise – which is running the platform – since they are now autopilot with their needs
- Increase in their revenue by multifold
- Managing the riders and drivers online
- Resolving the issues of cash management by virtualizing and keeping a better accounting online
- Running the loyalty program through our Smart Cabs platform and giving offers to the customers who are loyal and riding most of the cars.
Having said to resolve the issues by proving a robust and reliable online taxi booking solution by iView Labs
Now the Enterprise is fully scaling up this venture by launching this same cab solution to different cities in West and North of Africa.
