IT Staffing Solutions

Rothman & Associates provides Cleveland and Akron area companies with information technology (IT) and Microsoft technology staffing services and solutions. Our technical knowledge of computer networks, computers and Microsoft technologies is world-class. We are not a traditional temporary or permanent placement employment and staffing agency, nor are we information technology consultant recruiters. We are a custom software application development company that also provides IT staffing solutions. Our employees are experts at working with Microsoft programs and technology solutions, Internet services, data storage and databases, servers and other computer hardware and software that power businesses in the Cleveland, Ohio area. The people that work at our firm just dig computer jobs and their careers.

If we can help a company in the Cleveland or Akron metropolitan areas by allocating an IT expert with integrity to work at their offices part-time or full time for some defined period of time, we deploy this person and bill an hourly rate for the IT work they perform. This work can be database programming, data entry, enterprise application development, network administration, application architecture design, project management or some other information technology. If one of our clients needs a reliable and experienced .NET, ASP, C#, VB.NET, SQL Server or Visual Studio programmer for a short-term project, we are happy to draft an IT staffing agreement and will have a talented programmer or IT consultant get started as soon as possible. Call us at 440-349-0478 to find out how our IT staffing solutions and staff augmentation services can help your company or organization use information technology to reach your goals and objectives. We can start the conversation by providing some good advice or get back to you with an estimate, proposal, work agreement, statement of work or contract.

So how does Rothman & Associates provide IT staffing solutions and get engaged with Cleveland businesses that need help with their information technology staffing challenges? Our president, Howare Rothman will typically meet with a current our prospective client executive, IT Director or Human Resource manager to ascertain their exact IT staffing requirements. We then collaborate with our clients to plan and identify the number of employees or size of the workforce that will be required to complete an IT project, fix a database problem or build a software application. Once the IT staffing solution has been determined, we prepare a document called a “Statement of Work” that specifies the information technology work that will be performed, project deliverables and a staffing time line which indicates how long the contract will last. This work agreement includes billing rates and payment schedules.

When we hire intelligent and honest IT professionals who have recently finished their IT studies, training and schooling, they usually start work at our offices in Solon, Ohio, a suburb on the east side of Cleveland as programmers and software engineers. Once they have reached a level of expertise, they occasionally help our clients by providing staff augmentation services. We place one of our IT experts on our customer's IT staff for a set period of time where they assist our clients understand and use new or existing computer-based technologies and information systems. Our IT staffing consulting solutions are usually temporary because our IT professionals enjoy the work environment at Rothman & Associates. We don't provide our clients with IT employees who we recruit that are out of work by going on Monster, LinkedIn or Indeed and looking for resumes. As such, we don't focus on permanent, direct-hire, and contract-to-hire information technology staffing services, but will consider the option in a special circumstance.

Our IT staffing solutions make it easier and more cost effective for our clients to implement and manage new hardware and enterprise-class software applications.

One of the most productive ways that our clients utilize our IT staffing services is when they need to organize a good plan to manage their company's technology life cycle.
