When a customer has a specification or clear vision of the project, a set price may be agreed upon. After analysing this information we provide an estimate for time and efforts the project could take. On the basis of the estimate the proposal is created, and after that the corresponding contract is signed for a particular predefined scope of work. All additional features, requirements and changes that were not discussed before the project start, will be treated as Change Requests and are subject to additional negotiations and payment.
Time & Materials
If case time-frame, specification or scope of work is not clear enough or the customer envisages the solution will undergo enhancements or modifications during the development, which are not defined at the initial point. Basically, the customer is provided with certain specialists (with certain skills and competence level). In this instance our specialists work on a time and material basis – when a client pays only for the quantity of actual hours spent on the project basing on periodic development reports.
Our customers have a virtual extension of their in-house development team with all the benefits of access to a larger pool of skilled IT specialists, team workload control and flexibility of work assignments at the same time. In this case the preselected software development team is absolutely dedicated to the customer’s project, while the customer is responsible for providing the team with the agreed workload size taking responsibility for the idle hours of the team members as well.
We can apply a mix of the above models (e.g. DDT+TM, FP+TM) for complete flexibility, as well as using approaches suggested by our customers. We may also recommend different engagements models for different projects for the same customer.
