Hetarth Consulting offers a wide range of nearshore and offshore development services, and our well-defined engagement models ensure that we can maximize the benefits of outsourcing, whether you are a Startup, SME or a large enterprise. Before taking up a project, we take sufficient time to understand its business needs, manpower requirements, duration, volatility and complexities. After discussing and analyzing these aspects, we suggest a proper engagement model most suitable for your project. Our flexible engagement models ensure that you access the highest quality at optimum costs, irrespective of the size of your project and the type of your requirements.

Fixed Time & Cost Estimate

We offer this model to customers when the scope and specification of the project is clear and has defined needs and timelines. On the basis of a requirements document provided by the client, we work to achieve the specified goals. First, the milestones are set and the payment is fixed. The price for the entire project is agreed upon and payments are made as milestones are met. If your requirements are clear and set, you can choose this model and ensure on-time and on-budget delivery.

  • The fixed model has exact budget defined in advance
  • Billing is based on milestones completed
  • Change in scope needs client approval, ensuring budget never exceeds
  • Low risk or risk-free model for service provider and client as cost and the timeline are fixed before the project is initiated

Time & Material

When the specification and scope of the project is not determined and involves constant variations, we usually offer a Time & Material model which allows clients to alter team size, project timelines and resources of the ongoing project as per market trends. Since projects tend to evolve during their development cycle necessitating additional or lesser resources, the project in this model is billed on an hourly and monthly basis depending on the resource utilized in the project.

  • Best option when the project scope is constantly changing.
  • Option for client to make hourly, daily, weekly or monthly payment.
  • Flexible model, allowing client to experiment with new activity and requirements.
  • Change project resources based on the project’s evolving life cycle.

Hire Dedicated Team

This type of model is perfect to meet tight project deadlines, sudden team expansion or hiring a developer for emerging technologies, flexibility is the need of the hour. You retain complete control over processes and drive strategy to manage resources. Flexible and highly scalable, our dedicated developers are ideal for clients with varying business schedules or productivity demands.
