We will works with you to determine the model which suits you best according to your requirements.
Fixed Fee Model
A fixed fee model is a time bound, project based engagement model, which defines the scope, expected deliverables, time-frame requirements. If you engage in this model, you would be able to focus on your core business and activities by engaging our technical and domain specialists.
Time and Material Model
This model is best suited when the scope, project outcomes are not defined at the time of kick-off. In such cases, since the end outcome is not clearly known, billing can be done basis resource utilization deployment. Each resource type will have a particular bill rate, depending on their skill set, experience and role in the project. A pre agreed rate is charged until the full project is delivered according to the time expended by the resource, like for example the billing can be done on hourly, weekly or monthly basis.
In this model, the client team and the development team form a part of the core committee. The client core team will be at the client site and the development core team would travel as required to the client site, for meetings and updates.
Outsourced / Managed Services
Managed Services is the ideal model for long term IT outsourcing strategy and is often adopted by customers as a continuation of an existing Staff Augmentation engagement. Itechmatics offshore managers are responsible for the entire life cycle of the development and support engagement.
In this model, the core team sits out of the client location, while the support team members like developers, testers etc, sit from an offshore location. In this model, the dedicated team is based out of an offshore location, and regularly interacts with the client to ensure project activities and delivery are progressing as per defined scope and arrangement.
Consulting / Subject Matter Expert
In this model, Itechmatics provides short-term engagement of expertise at the times most critical to your project. The management model is determined by the scope of the project and the nature of any deliverables.
Staff Augmentation / Contracting
In this model, Itechmatics provides qualified experts to work at your site and fully-embedded in your team. Your managers provide all assignments directly and control all day-to-day coordination.
