the onset of your project we need to decide on the best approaches that is
required to insure that your offshore software development is carried out to
budget and delivered on time.
There two options that outsource solutions provide are fixed price development
or development on a time and materials bases. The approach taken is usually
dependent on scope of the project and the initial requirement specifications
that you may already have.
Fixed Price, Fixed Time Development
If you have a set of reasonably clear requirement specifications then using this
method we will be able to provide you with an upfront cost and timescale for
your project. You then have a guaranteed price and delivery date for the
project, hence the huge saving that you will make by taking the offshore
approach will be clear to you before any major work is started on you
Time and Materials
In situations where your requirements can not be nailed down at the initial
stage of the projects we can quote you on a time and materials bases. We will
take your initial set of requirements and recommend a team and equipment
required to carry out further analysis and subsequent development of your
application. You then pay an agreed daily rate for the duration of this
service. In may case we have had customers that have started off using this
approach and then switched to the fixed price approach as the requirements and
scope of the project becomes well defined.
