We have always had a very good working relationship with Softworld over the years and they have been involved in many of our largest and most critical initiatives during this time. Specifically, we have utilized Softworld resources for several merger and acquisitions and system conversions in addition to smaller project work and staff augmentation. Resources from Softworld were key program-level resources for a multi-year Branch platform replacement initiative that was extremely successful.
In addition to providing outstanding service to RBC Bank over the years, many of the Softworld resources that have worked with us have developed lasting relationships with many of our employees, myself included. To me this speaks well to the quality of the resources that Softworld recruits and attracts. As with any consulting group we have had the rare occasion where a resource was just not the right fit. In these situations Softworld was quick to respond and resolve the situation. Softworld has also continued to strive to be competitive in these times of “off shoring” and leveraged “preferred vendor” relationships.
Having looked at other options and not finding the right fit, we ultimately chose Softworld’s staffing and recruiting capabilities for our 2008 MC to Visa card conversion and back-end conversion. Their “banking” focused expertise made the selection that much easier. Once Softworld received our specific skill sets/requirements, they presented our team with “spot on” people. We engaged two perfect fits from Softworld for this business critical project; a Project Manager with over 20 years of project management and banking experience including 15 years of credit card, debit card, ATM, Visa DPS, conversion and integration experience (both on the technical and business side), and a Business Analyst, also with over 20 years of banking operations and business analysis experience. The PM was instrumental in keeping us on track throughout the project and the BA added invaluable business expertise. Both consultants played critical roles in the success of the project and easily blended in and integrated with the personality/environment of our bank. If you are seeking proven subject matter experts with multiple years of banking experience, I would strongly recommend utilizing Softworld’s resources.
For the past two years, Softworld has consistently assisted Trustmark Bank in locating senior-level subject matter experts. Softworld helped us locate professionals relating to a recent “Argo” Project, as well as provided us with resources during our Fiserv/Checkfree/Pep+ Project. We simply supplied Softworld with the skill sets needed, and within two days we had resumes of top notch candidates. What really separates Softworld from other companies is their ability to provide senior level professionals who already have the necessary “banking” background/experience necessary to reduce the initial integration time needed, which contributes significantly to our projects being on time and successful.
In addition, we have utilized Softworld for local “niche” talent, including Storage Administrators, Tech Writers and Systems Administrators, among others. Whether it’s project work, contract work or contract-to-perm scenarios, we recommend Softworld as an invaluable partner.

I am so pleased that we have found these two senior banking candidates that will strengthen and diversify our project team. I really appreciate the way that Softworld has been able to partner with us over the course of this process and the tenacity in finding exceptional banking subject matter experts has set you apart from the other agencies. I also appreciate you demonstrating “skin in the game”; by packaging them both with blended rates that will fit within my budget. I have no questions that we both will find a great deal of value out of these contracts and thank you for making this a win-win for both of us.
We are extremely pleased with the responsiveness and expertise that ExpertFSO provides our teams. As a small business, ExpertFSO is a strategic partner that enables us to comply with complex security regulations including the NISPOM, in a cost-effective approach. We have used ExpertFSO for over a year as our company grew from 65 to 130 employees. Their security consultant works as an integrated team with our recruiting, HR, and PMs to handle every aspect of personnel security for our employees, following the agency-specific procedures for a dozen different DoD and civilian agencies. Everyone on our teams has complete confidence in our Security Consultant, and in fact, based on an internal survey, our security department (ExpertFSO) has the highest employee satisfaction rating for responsiveness and effectiveness. If there is a challenging security issue to discuss with a customer or vendor, ExpertFSO will help us. They help us implement and maintain our industrial security posture, conduct internal inspections, and ensure we are fully prepared for Site Assistance Visits. Hiring ExpertFSO was one of the best decisions we have made, and I highly recommend them to any business that needs expert security support at a flexible level of effort.
Softworld was instrumental in helping me to bring a large team of contractors in to assist with major regulatory and compliance related initiatives. We had requirements for consultants with deep compliance experience in large banking environments, who would also be able to become permanent employees of our bank. The quality of the Softworld candidates was outstanding, and as important was the speed at which Softworld was able to deliver them to us to meet our aggressive schedules. I have since moved to a new job at a new bank and have already utilized Softworld’s services to fill two key program/project management roles.
We began working with Softworld over two years ago, and in that time frame, they have met every expectation on any requirement they receive. The ability to find the most qualified candidates and having a superior response time is their biggest asset. I look forward to continuing our partnership with Softworld for the years to come.
Softworld Engineering has been our go-to consulting firm for all of our staffing needs. They have come through for us on numerous occasions when we needed a top-tier talent and very specific type individual.
Without a shadow of doubt, if an important tough-to-find opening arises, I know I can go right to Softworld to have them get us the right person. Softworld has been a strong business partner in an ever-changing industry, and as we continue to grow, I know that Softworld will be right alongside us in our journey!
I am so impressed with the response time from Softworld Engineering, and their recruiting team led by Chris Simms. They are so knowledgeable in our business and our culture. It is an absolute pleasure in working with them. Their recruiting service will continue to be in our future plans.
I worked with Tim when we were setting up a large functional service provider group of statistical programmers, and I found Tim to be extremely capable and dedicated to assuring that our new model was successful. He always went the extra mile to make sure that as a sponsor, our needs were met or exceeded and he also worked tirelessly to assure that the contract resources were well taken care of.
Tim is the consummate professional, with a calm demeanor, self-confidence and sincerity that reassures all of his clients that they are in the right hands. He is masterful at accessing all of the resources and asking the probing questions that will successfully identify the right candidate for particular positions.
As a Professional Services Manager, I always relied on Tim’s exceptional recruiting skills to help me find the best match for the positions posted. Thanks to Softworld I was able to hire some of the “top talent” for our Organization.
