Cooperation Models 

This is how we can pitch in:

Outsourced software development cooperation models

  • Full cycle product development: you provide a specification or a dedicated Product Sponsor, and we build the software from the ground up.
  • Specific or standalone functionality development: to help you extend the offering, we create additional features or applications for your product which require certain development skills – for example, a mobile version, BI tool and so on.
  • Team augmentation: a flexible team or individual developers complement your project with the needed technology skills.

Carrying Out Projects of Various Complexity and Size

The pool of 500+ full-time, English-speaking IT specialists allows us to accommodate the needs of:

Large-scale projects

Large-scale projects and projects with complex architectures: for example, during one of the projects – a large PLM platform for 20,000 retailers, manufacturers and suppliers – ScienceSoft involvement grew from 4 to 39 specialists in 2 years of cooperation, engaging the development, testing and BI teams.

Small- and medium-scale projects

Small- and medium-scale projects: our smaller software development teams have proved efficient in creating software products from scratch as well as augmenting the customers’ teams.

Projects with distributed teams and 3rd party vendors

Projects with distributed teams and 3rd party vendors: backed by fluent English and good communication skills, our specialists always stay on the same page with other project stakeholders.

Challenges We Solve

  • Software value less than expected. Our team can assist your decision makers in feature prioritization and start implementing the most important ones, gradually adding features with lower importance. We can also advise you on what features can be developed with relatively small investment.
  • Software development running out of budget. Applying the Fixed Price pricing model, we stick to the budget stated in the contract. Alternatively, we can develop software under the Time and Material model. In this case, we help you manage software outsourcing costs by clearly defining the budget for every project milestone and advising you on possible project scope modifications.
  • Software development that takes too long. We use ready-made building blocks where possible to save time on developing software from scratch. Our software gets several releases, which allows us to deliver a useful product as early as possible. We also have enough human resource to scale up a project team quickly to accelerate the software development process.    
  • Software maintenance causing troubles. Being familiar with your software from within, our technical team specializes in providing maintenance and support services at different levels on a 24/7 basis. We optimize the product architecture to make your software maintenance costs lower.     
  • Software development process that is not transparent enough. Our specialists will provide reports for you to monitor the project team performance as often as agreed with you. In Agile projects, we also facilitate direct communication between your project sponsor (and other stakeholders) and the developers working on your project.
