The best practice that we follow, is to provide services through the leasing of entire teams or individual specialists. However, if needed, we can also provide custom development. Our teams must fulfill the balance of key competencies such as: communication skills, project management, business analysis, object-oriented analysis and programming, information system architecture design, multi-phase testing, and administration of created applications.
ALLOCATION OF SPECIALISTS Cost savings and flexibility To our clients we outsource teams of experts or individual specialists for a predetermined period of time (specific projects) or an unlimited period (service support). The advantage is that the client need not to handle the obligations of hiring new employees (we take care of that) and the teams can be enlarged or reduced as needed. We offer the outsourcing of particular specialists or just necessary capacity.
WHY DO I WORK AT ASSIST? Project manager
“I know that I have a stable company behind me that will listen to my individual needs and if necessary, meet me halfway. ASSIST offers the best of both worlds – it is a moderately sized company with a personal approach where you also have the opportunity to work for large multinational clients.”
“I like the focus on car sales. And I have a great bunch of friendly people at work.“
“At ASSIST I can continue to expand my knowledge of development, analysis and IT project management, so I won’t fall into a rut. I also appreciate the excellent teamwork of my colleagues.“
“My co-workers and I have the chance to influence the manner in which software is developed for one of the largest car manufacturers, on a technological scale never seen before, from the mainframe to mobile phones. We work together with people defining the software architecture of large corporations, as well as with representatives of users throughout Europe. In the CR there are not many companies that could offer me a comparable position.“
“I like to combine analytics with development. That is exactly what my work at ASSIST lets me do.“
I have worked at ASSIST for 15 years now and over that time I have learned to use many new technologies and met dozens of mostly young and promising employees. Company management takes care of their workers on both a personal and professional level. There are training sessions, company events chosen by the employees, and sport benefits. Even after so many years, my work is still enjoyable and satisfying.
ASSIST ACADEMY professional IT education and university program Compact set of activities focused on development of IT professional education and preparation of future specialists. We offer both company and public courses, exams with certifications, national accredited qualifications and assistance to technical universities’ graduates.
COURSES IN ENGLISH
We increase the skills of your IT specialists in areas such as IBM Power Systems, IBM z Systems, Java, Linux, databases, Salesforce, G Suite or project management. Company training sessions are the most frequent ones but we also organize public courses in the event that you only need to train individual employees.
To meet your specific needs our trainings are fully customizable in content. Therefore we can supplement the necessary range of skills for your specialists. If necessary, we test participants in advance to determine their level of expertise. Generally trainings take place in our classrooms and at our facilities, but we are also prepared to work on your premises or arrange internet broadcasted virtual classes.
These courses are intended primarily for the employees of our foreign clients. Courses can also include cultural activities in Prague, so that instruction is combined with team building. We provide all the necessary arrangements for accommodation and local transportation.
ON-LINE STUDY Registered participants will be given access to our on-line library full of professional materials, video courses and a series of tests to verify skills. Users have access to our „as400 ” with IBM i version 7.1 operating system to test their ideas or verify processes in real time.
PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION Determine where your IT specialists stand with our tools. We will prepare practical case studies for them in a simulated real environment – our many years of experience have given us a nearly unlimited source of cases to draw upon. Successful participants will be awarded certification confirming their skills.
ACCREDITED QUALIFICATIONS ACCORDING TO NSK Since 2016 we organize testing of accredited professional qualifications for the position of “Programmer” according to the National Register of Qualifications (NSK). Those who successfully pass this standardized test will be awarded recognized documentation of their skill level. You can choose to only take the test or we can also help you prepare for it through our public courses and on-line study.
For universities we offer external thematic lectures. We share our know-how with students, who learn to see the cohesion between the ivory towers and practical applications. Supporting education is important for us because we need to recruit freshmen specialists continuously. When any free spaces open up students are able to attend our public courses for free. To those students who have decided to enter the field we offer internships, so that they gain some real experience before seeking their first job.
TAKE YOUR BUSINESS TO THE CLOUD Integrating SaaS/PaaS into company management As cloud solutions make their way onto the market of company services, we provide assistance in integrating them into a company’s IT. Our value added is the ability to integrate old and new systems, create communication matrices and recommend the best solutions. For monthly licensing fees small and medium-sized businesses can benefit from applications that are already configured. For larger businesses we offer customized solutions. Our work includes user training and subsequent customer support.
CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT
VIRTUAL OFFICE ENVIRONMENT
Integrate Salesforce as the managing platform of your company. Based on our knowledge of the environment and platform we tailor the system’s settings to the specific needs of the client.
On-premise setting of software is a burden today. We help our clients free themselves from inflexible office packages. That is why we are a partner of G Suite — a virtual office environment that will help you save up to 70% in company IT costs by taking advantage of the SaaS benefits and monthly payments for individual users.
