Development Models

Solution

Collating some of the questions that are asked to us by our potential clients.

 

ENGAGEMENT MODELS

Do you have or are willing to have the following engagement model:

Onsite - One where your team works at our development site?
Yes

Your Office - One where our team member works at your development site?

Maybe, We are open to this but have never done this on a long term basis. Its usually been for a week or two max especially in the initial stages. This scenario has never arisen so far and we are surely open where there is a part overlap on both sides.

Offshore - One where our team is on our site and your team on yours?
Yes

 

PRICING MODELS

Do you have or are willing to have the following pricing model:

Fixed Bid?
Yes

T & M?
Yes

FTE?
Yes. We are comfortable with all the three pricing models above. In our case, T&M and FTE work almost the same as we put a mutually agreed cap on the max hours per month that can be billed though the actual hours can be more as per the project demands.

Are you open to discussing the possibility of partnering with us to a certain extent where a percentage of the stake of our company is given to you in exchange for a reduced pricing?
No.

How are payments to you, settled?
Before contract start / Monthly / End of month / End of contract?

For fixed bids, its milestone based. For FTE & T&M, its usually on a monthly basis.
