Being an innovative and flexible company we strive to provide our customers with the flexibility of choosing the appropriate software development partnership model to best suit their needs.
We offer the following software development models:
All project development, starting with envisioning through to the delivery and support stage, is done on ScienceSoft's premises. Customers are kept fully aware of each project stage; material results are provided to clients regularly on a pre-arranged basis.
The project is carried out on the customer’s site. With its pool of 300 developers, ScienceSoft is able to bring highly qualified staff with strong programming skills to your location. ScienceSoft takes into consideration customer’s requirements regarding the personnel and shortlists a few suitable candidates for the interview.
Combined onsite/offsite model
The onsite team located at the customer’s premises directly interacts with ScienceSoft offshore development team. The onsite team is able to address and attend to critical items and integration issues which need immediate attention, while ScienceSoft dedicated offshore team will work on system development.
This model maximizes utilization of time and resources by providing the customer with 24-hour development time and reducing production costs through the utilization of our own offshore facilities. This model is recommended for middle- sized and large projects which are subject to change and need immediate attention from our team.
Offshore Development Team (ODT)
This model allows the customer to have a virtual extension of their in-house software team. ScienceSoft forms a dedicated team of software specialists which are pre-selected by the customer. The team adopts the customer’s practices and methodologies of software development and project management.
The project management can be either on the customer’s or ScienceSoft side. In both cases the Customer has a full control over the software lifecycle.
Customers' Own Methodologies
Being a dynamic and flexible company, ScienceSoft is ready to employ the customer’s own working standards and methodologies.
ScienceSoft provides customers with a Project Quotation that describes the project scope and schedule in detail. The payment schedule for a Fixed Price/Fixed Date agreement depends on project milestones and duration. This model is recommended for middle-size projects, where the scope of the project is defined and timelines are aggressive. This is the most cost-effective outsourcing solution to take advantage of.
Time and Material
