Our client, TP Vision, required a team of Cloud specialists with broadcast experience. This was to enable the development of their smart TV product range. They had recently exited from a long standing partnership with Philips and as such, it was important for them to establish their competencies in house and also to upskill their current team structure.
Vertex were given the brief to supply a Senior Cloud Architect to the business and then support that individual with the development of the software team beneath him. TP had been looking for 6 months previous to Vertex’s involvement for the right person. Vertex conducted a thorough search of the market and identified a shortlist of 3 of the best individuals for the position from a global pool. From this TP appointed their Senior Architect. We are currently in the process of supplying the team beneath and are currently achieving a CV to interview to placement ratio of 4/2/1. This is the best ratio that TP have ever had from a supplier and is resulting in £thousands of cost savings in terms of man hours.
TP Vision are already on the cusp of announcing their next iteration of smart TV. The technology within this has been developed largely by talent supplied by Vertex.
The Verdict “TP Vision have appointed Vertex as their main supplier for all technology and digital talent provision.” Software Manager
