SCOPE Our client required a partner who could provide the right solution to support their initiatives to create an automated, service-based platform for virtual and augmented reality experiences designed for the gaming industry. The platform needed to be compatible with various types of real-world media. Prior to engaging Apex, the client was struggling to find resources with quality gaming experience, resulting in slow progress on the project. SOLUTION Apex’s flexible solution adapted our standard delivery model to fit the needs of this unique project. Apex’s local account manager and technical director began by immersing themselves in the gaming and 3D graphics community at a five day conference. Using their knowledge of the community they implemented a sourcing strategy that included the following customized activities for our delivery personnel: 1) attendance of unique gaming and VR career fairs; and 2) joining applicable niche technology/gaming forums; and 3) in-person networking and social initiatives. By integrating Apex staff within the community, we refined our existing graphics engine and gaming development knowledge, which improved our ability to assess the quality of candidates interested in working on this project. To add value for our customer, Apex designed and co-developed training, workshops, development classes, and industry partnerships. Apex also developed and managed a skills testing program unique to each skill set requirement. Some examples of this program were tests created specifically for graphics engineers and computer vision engineers. Skill sets Apex provides in support of this project include: 3D Modeling Business Analysis Graphics Engineers Computer Vision Engineers IT Support Project Management UI/UX Design RESULT By developing a customized delivery model for a unique set of skills, Apex has been able to deliver critical resources that produced outstanding results. The success of this engagement led to a streamlined and proactive approach to resource fulfillment, which resulted in keeping the project on time and within budget. Since implementing our initial solution, our client has been able to increase productivity levels with a focus on advancing their universal gaming platform in the marketplace.
