Tufts Health Care Institute hires NSK Inc for development work while in-house staff on leave of absence.
Boston, MA, July 26, 2010 – NSK Inc, a Boston-based IT Consulting firm has been hired by the Tufts Health Care Institute (THCI) for an eight-week project to assist with IT and web support. The in-house developer for THCI is on paternity leave this summer, and the Institute contacted NSK Inc about filling in for two months.
The relationship between the two organizations is incredibly convenient as both share office space at 75 Kneeland Street, in Boston’s Chinatown neighborhood. Currently, NSK is providing four hours of development each week. Tasks have included entering and posting HTML content in online learning resources, updating scripts, and general IT support for THCI’s courseware and registration systems.
Project manager, Steve Papaccio says, “I’m excited to continue the relationship between NSK and Tufts Health Care. THCI has developed a strong set of web resources for their users and NSK is looking forward to contributing to and supporting that effort.” THCI Director of Content Development Ralph Halpern finds contracting with NSK to be an efficient and effective way to meet the Institute’s short-term need for IT support. “The NSK staff is both highly qualified and responsive to our requests. NSK offered flexible contract terms and did a good job of coordinating the handoff of work from our staff to their experts.”
