The outsourcing team works as an extension of the local client’s team. The client assigns tasks and manages the team in the same way as his own local team. The local & outsourcing teams work together as one.
Choosing this approach means very close collaboration and communication between all members of local and nearshore teams. Regular meetings and the ability to confer daily via video linkup requires a good command of English of all team members, as well as highly transparent absence management. JCommerce ensures a high level of integration at the earliest possible opportunity. For this reason, our programmers cooperate in terms of Agile Methodology, which helps to eliminate such outsourcing risks as lack of mutual understanding, different treatment of tasks, and late (and, as a result, costly) recognition that something is not right.
The project is created by a client team (functional specs, architecture) in close collaboration with the end-customer.
When everything is clearly defined and approved, the project is submitted to the outsourcing development partner – the JCommerce team, which is responsible for its correct implementation and further improvements. The development team and the local team need a Project Manager (at both ends acting as a SPOC) coordinating ongoing tasks.
Project outsourcing is a beneficial approach, which can guarantee the improvement of ongoing activities and the faster achievement of business results. It is known as a tool to increase an organization’s productivity, flexibility and quality.
The outsourcing team conducts projects designed by the local team. The projects are completely outsourced to the partner and consecutive stages of the project development are coordinated by Project Manager and Software Architect. JCommerce programmers run this kind of approach by setting up a longstanding strategic relationship, due to which our specialists are able to run numerous mutual projects instead of just one. This is advantageous in terms of work arrangement and coordination, as the dedicated team knows the partner's work philosophy and requirements.
a product or a service of a known price in a known timeframe.
The Fixed Price model works best when the project specifications and the deliverables are clearly defined and known, and the working budget is optimized. It ensures that the budget is maintained, the project schedules are adhered to, and the payment schedules are linked to intermediate milestones. It is a low risk model, which suits best small projects, and where post-project support is minimal. The key to the success of fixed-price contract is perfect planning.
Time & Material
charging for hourly rate, direct expenses and material purchased.
The Time & Material model is particularly useful in contexts where the project is complex and the requirements are not clear up front - or if the project is an innovative vision that nobody has ever done before, and it is impossible to describe and specify at the very beginning. The inherent flexibility of this model allows the client to manage changes easily, when willing to implement new technology or new ideas. The client can be also involved in process development and provides feedback, which is immediately included.
