New Business Application Development Services

 

Time and Material
 

This model is best suited for projects where the scope, specifications, deliverables and implementation plans are not completely defined when beginning the engagement or are expected to evolve over the period of the engagement. This model provides clients with the desired flexibility to manage team sizes and costs as the project progresses in phases. In using this model, you can:
 

  • Ramp up and ramp down team size in synchronization with the market, project and release schedules
  • Adapt to evolving requirements
  • Get detailed visibility and control over the development process
     

 

My project is not clear yet and I need flexibility
 

We feel exceptionally engaged and inspirited when we are tasked with something that has never been done before. Customers feel we deal well with these cases - when there are no clear software requirements in place. We request customers Subject Matter Experts (SME) to send us broad guidelines of the project. We ask ample questions in order to take hold of your idea, understand your objectives and needs of software end users. We suggest our own ideas and think out the details with you to help you construct a future product.
 

Development Teams
 

We set up Development Teams that work exclusively for your company like your remote IT department.
 

Resource flexibility
 

In the Dedicated Team model, development resources are reserved for the customer at the volume required to perform regular development tasks. 
 

Fixed Price

 

This model is suited for projects where the scope, schedules requirements and deliverables are clearly defined before the initiation of the project. In using this model, you can:
 

  • Limit scope variance, control costs and operate within a specified budget
  • Get clear visibility on timelines and milestones
  • Reduce your risk and have Sansoft IMS responsible for the project deliverable
  • Expect on-time on budget deliveries provided there are no changes to scope
     

In a fixed-priced model, responsibility for project completion on scope, on time and on budget is fully outsourced to Sansoft IMS. You can sign up for this model to save on well-specified development needs as well as porting/re-writing tasks.
 

Software Requirements need to be well-defined

We need to know the specific requirements of your software and the total flow of the information within the organization related to the required software. Our engineers will review your specifications and respond with any questions needed to clarify the scope of work.
 

Hire Sansoft IMS to define your requirements

You can hire Sansoft IMS to elaborate on your requirements. Our analysts will professionally scope user roles, suggest features to improve usability and value for users, and specify system and performance requirements. Even if you have a sample solution to guide us through, we should understand how it works. As an outcome of the elaboration phase, you will obtain a fixed-price quote for development and receive a full-scale Technical Proposal.

 

Get a quote

In the fixed-price model, Sansoft IMS quote the project and create a proposal for your review. If it is acceptable, we commit to the fixed-price terms and begin the development.
 

Elaboration & Quote
 

Scope elaboration after the quote may result in:

  • Changed requirements
  • Changed price
  • Changed deadlines

 

Conduct an User Acceptance Procedure

At the end of the development, you will have a time period to conduct a user acceptance (UAT) procedure to test and examine the quality of the developed software and other project deliverables.


 

Why should you be confident about our estimate?
 

Our Project Managers always know where they are and in which direction they are going. They manage the team to keep the time and budget promise given in the Technical Proposal
 

Our Project Managers learns about your business needs

Our Project Managers aligns the project direction in order to meet this objective. A common case may be a presentation in front of potential investors and customers, where we will plan a release of the best features for a specific time.

Every project begins with planning. We map out resources and tasks, checking our work using proven metrics. We provide regular reports as often as you need them, and if any deviations occur, we inform you immediately on what action we took to correct the problem.
