Engagement Models

Comprehensive engagement model for all your custom software needs: for short- and long-term development, maintenance and support.

A robust engagement model is the foundation of an effective outsourcing experience.

Virtually every business must go digital these days and it’s no wonder that Information Technology is THE most outsourced component. Outsourcing helps to reduce and control expenses, reduce time to market and accelerate company transformation. However, when you decide to outsource software development, selecting the best provider and, most importantly, the engagement model proves to be a difficult task.

There are many engagement models available out there and each model has its own pros and cons. We strongly believe that a good model is all about the right mix of operational efficiency and relevant costs associated with processes and systems, for providing full control and high level of transparency to our customers. The best model will be chosen together with our customers taking into consideration time pressures and budget constraints, the expected deliverables and desired outcomes. We strive to provide flexible engagement models customized to suit the different needs of different enterprises in order to achieve lucrative experiences and enable customers to remain focused on their own skills.

Dedicated Team

Dedicated Team model is a new approach to applications and web development and it’s an agreement in which we provide a team of software developers to the customer, on a long term basis. We find and qualify the specialists that will be able to complete the assigned project and meet the requirements fully. The specialists are chosen based on their experience, expertise, languages and technical skills. The team can be managed by the customer directly or by a project manager provided by us.

The dedicated team outsourcing business model is mostly used for long-term projects, where the project scope changes frequently, the requirements are not well defined or incomplete and when the customer’s team lacks the required skills set in specific areas. The dedicated team fuses with our customer’s internal team thus increasing the technical capacity, and they work in symbiosis to develop project-specific solutions.

 

Transparency:

Dedicated team model has a very simple and transparent pricing system of monthly payments that depend on the team size in a given month.

We offer 2 options:
  • The payment is composed of members’ salaries + our fee that includes administrative overhead, revenue, etc.;
  • The payment is based on the employees’ hour/day rate, which already includes all the taxes, administrative costs and revenue for our company;

How does the Dedicated Team Model work?

Dedicated Team is more like a remote team. Unlike an extended team model, in which the team is more like an extension of the customer’s internal team, a dedicated team is a separate entity with its own management, frameworks and methodologies (which are approved by the customer).

We establish our software development teams in such a way as to enable the customer to work directly with the developers, thus achieving the highest level of productivity possible. By handling the recruitment process and operational management, leveraging our expertise in the local market, we create a pool of candidates whom our customers are able to screen personally. Once specialists are approved, they are hired and we set up workplaces and equipment, and your team is ready to work on your tasks and under your supervision.

At the end of this cooperation, the customer receives the ready-to-go product, including technical specifications, design and mock-ups and product intellectual property rights.
