Ceipal Joins with TechServe Alliance in the Launch of the IT & Engineering Staffing Dashboard™

Ceipal’s 2020 “Diamond Sponsorship” with TechServe Alliance Will Result in New Industry Tools and Resources for IT & Engineering Staffing Firms

ROCHESTER, NY — June 24, 2020 — Ceipal, a SaaS platform for the front and back-office business operations of staffing companies, today announced its collaboration with TechServe Alliance, the national trade association of IT & Engineering Staffing Firms, becoming its newest Diamond Sponsor. The collaborative effort will result in the development of new tools, including a monthly benchmark, that will deliver data-driven insights, actionable metrics, and track emerging trends for IT & engineering staffing firms that are critical to thriving in today’s ever-changing marketplace.

The Diamond Sponsorship includes a number of components, including collaboration on the development of the IT & Engineering Staffing Dashboard™, direct participation in TechServe Alliance’s annual conference and tradeshow, partnered webcasts, and more – all with the ultimate goal of providing additional resources to support the IT & engineering staffing industry.

“By partnering with TechServe Alliance, a prestigious trade association exclusively serving the IT and engineering staffing industry, we are excited to be part of the development of new tools that drive firm success,” said Ceipal’s CEO & Founder, Sameer Penakalpati. “This collaboration will benefit the entire industry with new resources to support management with data-driven insights. It’s a total game changer, and at Ceipal, we’re proud to stand at the forefront of this important effort.”

The first initiative Ceipal and TechServe Alliance will undertake is the IT & Engineering Staffing Dashboard™– benchmarking IT & Engineering Staffing Performance. Reported on a monthly basis, the “Dashboard” will allow participating organizations to benchmark their performance against industry peers as well as gauge progress over time. On a quarterly basis, the survey will also measure staffing firm adoption of innovative technology that enhances efficiency and operational effectiveness.

“The new IT & Engineering Staffing Dashboard™ will provide timely insights on firm performance which has never been more critical given these uncertain times,” stated Mark Roberts, CEO of TechServe Alliance. “For more than three decades, TechServe Alliance has been a leader in providing objective data-driven insights through a range of resources.  Given the growing importance for real-time market intelligence, this new monthly ‘Dashboard’ will provide insights to help guide firm strategy. Further, with technology playing an ever-increasing role in an IT & Engineering staffing firm’s ability to stay competitive, a newly created technology KPI will measure adoption of emerging technologies and serve as the basis for the new Tech Stack Competitiveness Index™ for the IT & Engineering Staffing Industry. We couldn’t be more excited about collaborating on this project with Ceipal, who has fully embraced the latest technology trends in the development of its product,” added Roberts

The initial IT & Engineering Staffing Dashboard™ survey will collect metrics from January 2020 through May 2020 and should take only 10-15 minutes to complete. In future months, the survey will “remember” each firm’s historical responses and should take only 5 minutes to submit.  Each participating firm will receive on a monthly basis their data benchmarked against industry peers and a “Dashboard” tracking their progress on KPIs. Participation is complimentary and metrics collected as part of the brief monthly survey will be kept confidential by TechServe. A monthly report on overall industry performance will be disseminated on an aggregate basis. Using data analytics, the initiative will also include projections on anticipated future performance.

The inaugural baseline survey launches today with a response deadline of July 9, 2020.  Results will be available on July 17. Interested parties are encouraged to participate by taking the survey here.
