Frequently Asked Questions
We can also scale with your needs. We have structured the workforce so you can access an on-demand expert in their field and pay only for the time they spend on your work request. You will not find this anywhere else without going through large efforts of bidding or contracts or monthly retainers. Agency Portal Services is literally a pay-as-you-go workforce at your beck and call.
We offer two types of memberships:
A Buyer Membership for those that are looking for technical or creative resources.
A Seller Membership for IT professionals and creatives that would like to select jobs they are certified to work on.
The APS system is built on the concept of small increments of work, identified as a Work Request. This would be called a task or item in other systems such as Basecamp, Redmine or MS Project. Let’s face it, a large project is built with many small increments of work. By detailing these small increments of work, you are able to delegate work across many resources and many time zones. Projects are completed much faster due to the delegation of work and smaller increments of work are more easily verified by your team.
Our aim is to fit in seamlessly with your organisation’s approach. We provide a simple, yet powerful system that allows you to communicate directly with one or multiple skilled people to accomplish the Work Request.
Our IT developers and creative designers are used to working remotely using Skype, Google Hangouts and video conferencing. That is why we built it into our system.
We believe that good communication is vital for a project’s success.
In our view, this attitude has made a key contribution to our having had many satisfied customers.
With every project we take the utmost care to ensure that our work is of the best possible standard.
Git, GitHub, and GitLab are the tools that we use to work with source code.
If you think you’d be a good addition to our team and love working with awesome customers, register here and we’ll talk. There will be a certification process for any workers in our system. This will not cost you anything and will ensure that we only have certified workers in our system.
Simple. You estimate. You approve time entries. You accept the completed Work Request.
Many of our workers have other certifications that they keep up on their own, such as: MCP, MCPD, MCSD, MCSA, MTA, WordPress, PHP, MySQL, Umbraco – just to drop a few credentials.
