Specificity

Hard technical challenges call for uniquely skilled professionals. At Dorsal, you always get the experts with the specific knowledge and skills for your problem.

Precision

A good technical match is just the beginning. We profile every Dorsal expert in seven dimensions: technology category, product, job role, skills, specialties, customer feedback and personal attributes. We continuously gather quality ratings and update our expert profiles based on customer satisfaction.

Our experts must also meet other stringent criteria, including citizenship, location, security clearance, and competitive constraints.

Armed with rich information about our experts’ skills and on-the-job performance, the Dorsal algorithm identifies the optimal match for your precise requirements.

Depth

As an open community, we’re not limited to a narrow slice of expertise. We access the best specialists in a range of technologies and bring them together as needed to meet each technical challenge. This open approach empowers you with the best possible expertise for your situation.

Here’s one example: Migrating from Oracle to AWS? We bring together Oracle, AWS and open source data base experts to work as a team.

Value

You expect excellent results at the best possible price. That’s what Dorsal delivers.

Quality Ratings Drive Expert Pay

Customer ratings have a powerful impact on the compensation of our experts.  Top ratings yield strong earnings whereas a low rating can reduce them by 50 percent or more. It can even drive it down to zero.

This aligns your interests with ours and everyone benefits.

No Overhead

Sales, marketing and administration eat up 50 to 70 percent of revenues in most enterprise technology companies. The technical people who actually do the work take home only a small fraction of the customer’s payment.

Dorsal is different: We allot 70 percent to 80 percent of revenues to our technical experts. This helps us attract and retain the best people – and offer our customers the highest value.

Pay per Use

No lock-in contracts. You pay only for the services you use. This can lower the cost of large deployments by a factor of five to ten.

Trust

Dorsal’s customers are among the most respected companies in the world. They expect the highest standards of professionalism, trustworthiness and security from us.

Skill Assessments and Background Checks

Each Dorsal expert is rigorously vetted across the seven Dorsal dimensions: technology category, product, job role, skills, specialties, customer satisfaction, and personal attributes. We also screen for location, security clearance, and more.

In addition, every U.S.-based Dorsal expert undergoes a rigorous background check performed by a trusted third-party service such as Good Hire.

Customer Satisfaction Ratings

For every Dorsal deliverable, customers rate our experts on results, technical skill, professionalism, and responsiveness. The ratings determine how much you pay – and how much an expert earns.

For example, an “excellent” rating translates to 100 percent payment. An “average” rating reduces the payment by 50 percent and affects the expert’s personal quality score.

Result: Higher-quality experts are assigned more work, while average experts receive fewer (or no) assignments. And our customers benefit from consistently superior service.

Data Security and Customer Control of their Data

Dorsal maintains enterprise grade security for all its systems and data. We regularly audit our systems, apply the latest available patches and look for ways to increase our security standards. Customers have control over their data at all times.
