CONTRACT LABOR PROVIDER RAMPS UP
QUICKLY TO PROVIDE DISASTER RELIEF
Advance clients serve many industries and operate under many different types of business models, including this client, who needed to ramp up quickly in to provide disaster relief:
The Challenge: Contract labor firm billing $200,000 per week, suddenly increased its volume by more than 600% as it supplied temporary labor to assist in the clean up of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico as a result of the Deepwater Horizon disaster on April 22, 2010.
The Advance Solution: The Advance team quickly evaluated the history of the firm, including its experience in Light Industrial Staffing, and that of its client, assembled a team on-site to provide documentation and audit of all necessary processes, and funded the necessary dollars, with additional financing available as the magnitude of the oil spill clean-up unfolded. Advance assisted with software integration, payroll, invoicing, and tax functions.
“Advance created a fast-action model specifically to help clients ramp up quickly when responding with temporary labor to assist with clean-up from disasters such as an oil spill, hurricane, flood, or tornado.”
