SOME OF THE MODELS WITH WHICH WE CURRENTLY OPERATE ARE:

Offshore Development Centre (24/7 Collaborative Model)

Fixed Time/Fixed Cost Project Model

Team Augmentation Model

OFFSHORE DEVELOPMENT CENTER (24/7 COLLABORATIVE MODEL)

In this engagement model, we launch a dedicated facility for the customer at our development center. This facility is like an extension of the customer's own facility and will be responsible for servicing the needs of your project. The dedicated facility leverages our technical infrastructure , process, management and execution capabilities. The dedicated facility is staffed either by existing resources or by client’s resources or by resources hired specifically for engagement or a mix of them all. Our managers are specifically meant to provide you with maximum visibility and accountability into the project development activities in our center of excellence. With this engagement model, as a client you stand to gain the maximum benefits of outsourcing and utilize the chance to employ some of the best talent available in the industry at our center of excellence.

Over the years, this approach has worked well for us since we have been able to leverage and exploit the difference in time zones to turn around work quickly. We recommend this engagement model for web application programming, e-commerce product development, e-commerce websites, dynamic websites, web designing, logo designing, and other types of software development.

 

FIXED TIME/FIXED COST PROJECT

In this engagement model, we take complete responsibility for managing and implementing your project needs. This engagement model is suitable for customers with well-defined project requirements and schedules. Under this low-risk model we work with clients to define expected deliverables and timelines to determine a mutually agreed fixed price. This model provides the clients with flexibility when there is concern over progress in remote projects. Under this option, the customer pays a pre-negotiated fixed price for the complete project scope agreed upon, which in turn is linked to well-defined deliverables. Our Milestones based payment options and schedules are pre defined from the onset of the project thus enabling the client to reduce risk by visibly monitoring progress of the project. We have observed over the years that this engagement model has great value since it leverages our expertise in implementing complicated business solutions.

 

Team Augmentation Model

When the project scope, specification and implementation plans cannot be precisely defined at the outset or requirements may change dynamically during the project implementation process, the Team augmentation model provides the flexibility of modulating the size and workloads of the development team assigned to your project, while optimizing time and costs. Under the hourly rate assignment model, we offer skilled resources, and the development effort is billed at the end of every month based on the pre-negotiated and mutually agreed hourly rate. Hence, the total project cost is determined by the amount of time and resources expended.

This model offers you a high degree of flexibility to alter specifications, accommodate unplanned activities rapidly, and adjust project resources based upon your evolving requirements throughout the software development process.
