As soon as the Cerebrum Infotech representatives connect you, we will offer you the three main kinds of contracts depending on your requirements, timing, and the budget. All these contracts include:
Depending on the contract type, the costs and rates may vary.
Under fixed price model, we would need a scope and expected timeline. We will send you elaborated proposal detailing the scope of work, development methodology, team structure, project schedule & pricing. Once you approve the proposal, we will engage our technical team for the project. We will send you a daily status report with weekly sprint plan.
We recommend this service for small to medium size companies or urgent projects. This choice works perfectly if the specifications of the software to be developed are particularized, clearly defined, and stable.
We follow time and material model for the projects where scope, specifications, and implementation plans are unclearly defined at the early stage of its development. It provides the tractability to manage the team size and total efforts.
In the T&M contracts, the customer is the project owner and assigns the task to the team. The team bills the client on hourly model for the efforts it takes to complete a defined task. This model follows a strict project management and reporting approach where task sheets for week are defined and on a daily / weekly basis and update is release to client on the project.
The cost of the project is incurred on the team size and the efforts of each team member. The invoice for the provided efforts is usually raised on fortnightly basis. This approach fits ideally for the projects that are expected to change and have don’t have circumference requirements.
The cost of software development is directly based on efforts hours at a pre-discussed hour rate.
The Offshore Development Centre model aspires at producing long term substantial business and commercial advantages to the clients. Following this model a dedicated team of professionals is formed as per the need of the projects. The composition of the team can be changed during the course of the project as per the different stages.
It is also known as the Hybrid model, this strategy integrates the benefits of offshore and onsite delivery. Onsite-Offshore model accords the cost-effectiveness of the offshore model and the face-to-face contact essential in averting communication gaps and ensuring your project’s success.
Benefits of this contract type:
Cerebrum Infotech coaches are skilled at implementing any kind of workflow requested by the customer. We could split traditional frameworks and use the hybrid approach, taking the best suitable elements from Agile, Scrum, Kanban, and ‘old faithful’ Waterfall.
Agile development methods are more efficient when the final goals of the project are not defined and the customer wants the development team to react to the changed requirements rapidly and effectively.
Waterfall software development is ideal for static projects, when the customer’s requirements are set and the changes are not likely to happen through the development process.
To manage the development of complex software in fixed-length iterations, the Scrum approach could be the best matching. The development process is divided into sprints, and the team interacts with the customer once the sprint is completed.
This approach is based on Agile but involves a bigger visual component. The benefit of Kanban is that it could overlap any of the models mentioned above.
