Our Software Development Workflow
1. Requirements gathering
3. Delivery & support
Dedicated (Extended) Team
IndigoVerge dedicates a selected team of developers to the project. The client has full management control over tasks and priorities, while we facilitate the process and support the developers involved.
Engaging a dedicated software development team has become the most popular model for working with our long-term partners for several reasons. It is cost-effective, hassle-free and gives just the right amount of control to all parties involved. Indigo’s size, experience and expertise in various software development technologies allows flexibility with building the best team matching the client and the project. We are also able to expand existing teams relatively quickly. Read more >
The payment is tied to the actual number of hours spent, at agreed hourly rates.
This engagement model guarantees that the price and resulting service will match, since the client receives regular reports of how every man hour was spent on the project. While this provides a lot of transparency, it can at times be a hassle and a bit more difficult to manage. Many of our long-term partners prefer the time-and-materials for small-scale and support projects, or when the full scope of the project is not clear yet. In this model mutual trust, understanding and acting in good faith are a must.
With this work model the vendor and the client agree on a fixed scope, timeline and budget.
Our experience shows that most fixed-price projects at some point become a tug of war with unforeseen, but necessary changes beyond the specifications on one side, and tight deadlines, limited budget and ambiguous responsibility behind the changes, on the other. Still, Indigo’s battle-hardened teams are experienced enough to handle and mitigate the risk for most situations. A lot of our new clients assign us fixed price projects to evaluate our ability and attitude, which we are more than happy to embrace, the result being mutually beneficial long-term partnerships.
