Offshore IT Services: A Business Necessity
Every company has a different engagement model to deal with their software development procedure. Selecting the right model can not only accelerate your software development lifecycle, but also contribute to the net profit of your organization considerably.
Evon believes in continuous communication with client whether it is about the development requirements or deciding on the appropriate engagement model of development. There are a few models that we offer our clients to select from, and discuss them in details.
This model is perfect for the clients who come to us with a fixed set of development requirements. The client gives us the requirement document and we quote a price for it. After deciding on the timeline for each phase of the development procedure, set milestones and payment terms, we start with our development process. This model doesn’t allow smooth integration of any upcoming additions or future changes in the requirement that was not produced by the client earlier.
If you have flexible and changing requirements, then this is the best model you can go for. It is for the clients who have varied requirements, which he/she wants us to work on based on the priority of it. The set of requirements however, may change, modify, or be discarded along with the expansion of the project. We work on this model based on the flowing requirements of the client and invoice them for the hours spent on the project.
This is the model where client hires dedicated resource from our development center and the teams of expert in varied technologies. Every team has a hierarchy of responsibilities and tasks. Every team has a leader and Project Manager, who work with the client to keep the process smooth flowing. Whether your requirement is that of application development from scratch or just minor changes here and there, we are here to serve you with the perfect offshore engagement model to make the development procedure worth your investment.
