An engagement model is a framework that defines collaboration between a client and an outsourcing vendor. It determines a level of control and responsibility, as well as provides a base for further relationship development. There is no “best” universal model to match every company’s needs. We offer a full spectrum of engagement options to suit your business needs; to help you enjoy the benefits of external expertise, cost management and risk mitigation. We are fully capable of satisfying your demands of higher flexibility by customising any engagement model:
|We recommend project-based engagement model for those who have a one-off/pilot project with well-defined requirements and deliverables. Employing this engagement model, you’ll have your project executed by a full-fledged team at ALEA.|
DEDICATED DEVELOPMENT TEAM
|We offer dedicated team services to extend your in-house development resources. We complete dedicated teams with the required amount of team members, project managers, necessary equipment and infrastructure based on your requirements.|
|The SLA-driven model is recommended for long-term projects with clearly agreed constraints and requirements. As per terms and conditions decided between you and ALEA, we take full responsibility for the complete service management as well as the agreed SLAs.|
An inevitable progression as in an effort to build more sustainable relationships and getting to the next level of a mutually beneficial partnership, ALEA offers non-linear and agile pricing models:
Dedicated Team (DT)
DT is a perfect choice if you need a team of highly qualified people who work as your offshore employees for a fraction of the cost; it would help mobilize and maintain such manpower onshore. In this model, we form project teams with required functional team members, project managers, designers, QA’s and infrastructure based on client requirements.
We have successfully implemented this concept for some of our biggest Clients across the Globe, thereby enabling them to obtain sustainable cost-quality- time advantage over their competition.
Fixed Cost (FC)
This model is best suited for small projects or for large projects when the scope, schedules and requirements of the project are specifically defined and documented. The total cost and timeline of the development is agreed prior to the start of the project. The most suitable development team, technologies and management resources are then mobilized for the project Since project specs and deliverables are clearly defined prior to project start, this model guarantees an on-time, on-budget delivery.
Time & Material (T&M)
Alea also offers the customers a greater flexibility to alter the project specification on an ongoing basis based upon upcoming market trends and business situations. The client pays a fixed hourly rate which is agreed upon at the time of contract signing. This model best works with regular, ongoing maintenance and support services. The minimum hourly rate contract that we offer is for at least 40 man hours of services.
