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.
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.
I lost my job of 10 years and my world was falling. Going to interviews, preparing myself, trying to get something in my area, south Florida. I had just come out of an interview and was not happy with the company. While walking in the parking lot to my car, Michelle from Softworld called me. She said she had an opportunity for me and that I was a good fit. I had to move to Boston though. She explained the details and I decided to take a chance. She took me through the steps and was there with me every step of the way. I was never alone. I interviewed with the company on the phone for 30 minutes. 15 minutes later I received a call from Michelle that they wanted to hire me. Needless to say, I moved to Boston and worked for two years for Softworld. It was a pleasure. They treated me right. They were very attentive to my needs. Moving across the country and having Softworld on your side makes it easy. You not only feel that you are growing professionally but you are right at home. Thank you Michelle, Alan and Team. You will always be in my thoughts. I will never forget talking to you while walking to my car. You took me from a low point in my life and brought me back to life. I would do it again with you in a heartbeat. Thank you!!!
I have been a contracting consultant with Softworld for over 13 years. This is the BEST contracting firm I have ever worked with as they are extremely professional and knowledgeable in the IT space. From their management team, recruiters, sales team, and administration staff, everyone is a pleasure to work with and are diligent in finding recurring work for their consultants. Additionally, their compensation is more than competitive, and I would never consider working for another contracting firm.”
The core capabilities provided by Softworld, Inc. to our organization allowed us to create an elastic workforce. The turnaround time from requisition to candidacy was extremely efficient. As a result we not only were able to meet our goals and initiatives, we found some strong candidates for hire. I appreciate all Softworld does for me.
