After a period of outsourcing its applications and software development, Stagecoach UK Bus decided to bring these functions back in-house. This meant recruiting an entirely new team, along with an application development manager to run it.

Working with Spring Technology, Stagecoach was soon able to make an offer to the perfect candidate. Spring Technology then worked with the manager to establish a timeframe to recruit the team and to agree the order of requirements. 

With our help, a cohesive team consisting of a project manager, a software architect, developers and testers, was soon established. Nine contractors and two permanent members have been placed to date.

Regular dialogue

Spring Technology continues to have a regular dialogue with the team, ensuring that team members are all happy within their roles. This has led to an efficient, productive team and a zero attrition rate.

Stagecoach UK Bus is part of the Stagecoach Group, one of the largest bus operators in the UK. It operates express and local bus services connecting communities in over 100 towns and cities with a fleet of around 8,100 vehicles.
