PCI Translations is a translation agency based in Atlanta (USA), specialised in niche sectors: online payment solutions, mobile telephone services and software, gambling industry, and so on. Because of a significant increase in turnover and diversification of the company's portfolio, PCI decided to ask for additional external assistance to manage their own translation projects.

The possibility of hiring a full-time project manager was deemed too onerous and therefore immediately rejected. Furthermore, the uneven caseload and seasonal peaks that characterise PCI in particular, and the translation world in general, suggested opting for a more flexible alternative. In 2009 PCI consulted Qabiria to find the best solution to meet their own needs.

Qabiria presented PCI with an affordable, tailor-made project management model that was based on two central elements: remote project management and remuneration based on a revenue-sharing mechanism.

Making use of ]project-open[, Qabiria was able to monitor and menage every aspect of PCI's translation projects directly from their headquarters in Barcelona (Spain): from the search, selection and evaluation of translators, to real time project management, QA checker and pre-invoicing. With regard to remuneration, Qabiria perceive a percentage of the income of each project. In questo modo Qabiria è incentivata a trovare in ogni momento le risorse più adeguate al budget di progetto previsto. Si tratta dunque di un sistema flessibile e adatto alle necessità di PCI, ma anche vantaggioso per Qabiria.

Risultato

Questa soluzione di project management su misura si è dimostrata redditizia per entrambe le aziende, e costituisce la premessa ideale per future collaborazioni e progetti comuni. Infatti, grazie a Qabiria, PCI ha ottimizzato l’utilizzo delle proprie risorse, potendosi concentrare sul networking e sull’espansione, con la sicurezza di mantenere elevati livelli di qualità in fase di produzione. Inoltre, data l’esperienza di Qabiria nella gestione di progetti di traduzione, PCI può contare sulle migliori pratiche del mercato e su un costante apporto di idee innovative. Per quanto riguarda i vantaggi per Qabiria, questa collaborazione ci ha permesso di consolidare ulteriormente la nostra attività di project management, ampliare il nostro raggio d’attività. Con PCI contiamo inoltre su un affidabile partner con cui sviluppare progetti innovativi di interesse comune.
