We are local to the Puget Sound region, and know the best way to learn about a company is to meet the people who work there face to face.
Thanks to the network of consultants that we have developed over the years, we are confident that we can partner with you to ease pain points and help you move forward faster.
We will make your job easier
Murphy & Associates has been in business since 1980, as a privately-held, family-run business. Over the years, we have benefitted from exceptional employee retention. Our support staff is seasoned and knowledgeable; many of them have been working with us for over ten years, so they understand the local market and share our belief in conducting business transparently. As a client you can be assured that, when you partner with us, you will have the support of an experienced and professional team.
Murphy & Associates has developed a robust, proprietary system to run our company operations. We built in flexibility that enables us to respond and adapt to the way our clients do business, not the other way around. We defer to the client's time-reporting processes and send invoices on a schedule and format that works with your process. If you need visibility into performance or budget line items, we can quickly provide ad-hoc reports.
Once our consultants are on board with a client, we go the extra mile to ensure that they are successful. Our team reaches out every consultant in the field on a monthly basis in order to keep abreast of their work and to proactively address any potential roadblocks. Furthermore, we do everything we can to make sure that our consultants stay focused on the client’s project. We do not turn our consultants into stealth account managers. While we certainly benefit from word-of-mouth and referrals, we don’t pay referral fees or otherwise actively encourage consultants to promote us. Our consultants work for the benefit of the client, and we strive to avoid any conflicts of interest.
We will give you great value
Murphy and Associates’ full disclosure policy and low-margin model allows us to deliver exceptional value to our clients. Our transparent way of doing business attracts top-tier consultants. People that have worked with us in the past know that we pay a higher percentage of their bill rate than our competitors, which is why so many of them have worked multiple assignments with us over the decades. Our clients benefit because they know that, given a budget or prescribed hourly rate, we can offer the best talent available.
We know that our clients are busy, so we strive to save time for our clients by proposing only vetted and qualified candidates. In all of our interactions, we maintain complete transparency with both clients and potential clients, thereby pre-emptively removing many of the snags that can bog down the hiring process.
We will make you look good
Over the past three and a half decades, we have worked with over 150 Puget Sound companies and employed nearly 2000 consultants. Through reputation and word of mouth, we have been fortunate enough to attract much of the best talent in the Puget Sound. Our longevity and transparent model give us, and our clients, a distinct advantage.
We offer consulting services that address a broad range of technical and business needs, from testing, to development to project management. We work with you to understand your business and the specific requirements of a role. Time is a valuable commodity; we'll provide the first level of screening and focus on finding the right match. We also stay engaged with clients during the course of an assignment to assess progress and performance, and if needed, we can make adjustments quickly.
