Modes of Engagement
Our flexible engagement models help to strike the right balance between operational efficiency and cost through associated systems and processes that are geared to provide customers with a high level of transparency and full control.
Offshore Delivery model
When the project is reasonably well-defined and the business logic straightforward, the entire gamut of work from requirements gathering to final delivery, can be executed offshore. Through the expertise gained over several years of industry experience, a strong adherence to established processes and the prevalence of excellent communication infrastructure, we employ this model effectively for the highest cost-effectiveness to our clients.
Onsite Delivery model
It is sometimes preferred to have the initial consulting, coding, testing, deployment and support entirely executed within the clientís premises. The onsite team of managers, consultants and programmers coordinate and execute their work seamlessly through the formation of an integrated team. This delivery model works well in reducing turnaround time, particularly in instances where the requirements are a little fluid and evolving.
This model also provides for staff augmentation, where software professionals are provided onsite for short-term engagements, to address backlogs or sudden surges in workload.
Often, we recommend a hybrid model through a combination of Offshore and Onsite teams. Typically in this model, the onsite team handles client interaction, requirements gathering, project management and final implementation, while the larger offshore teamís service offerings will include product design, coding and testing. The ratio of onsite-offshore effort is determined based on parameters of cost, domain complexity and the relative fluidity of requirements.
A typical model is illustrated in the figure.
The offshore development center is best suited for start-ups & small- and mid-sized companies that seek a long-term relationship through establishing a dedicated offshore team of engineers that act as a virtual extension of their own teams. Through a team of well-trained resources, this model offers a compelling value proposition by ensuring continuity, cost effectiveness and reduced time to market.
Maintenance and Testing Services
Application maintenance and testing support services are offered for software solutions developed by Telkite, as well as for third party legacy applications. These services include product enhancement, bug fixing and product testing. Through our strengths in software engineering, a well entrenched process regime and the use of automated tools, we are able to quickly institutionalize appropriate methodologies and protocols as would be relevant to the clientís product. Our increasingly popular software maintenance program provides for optimization of resources, lowers cost of ownership and offers quicker turnaround time.
Starting a relationship is very easy but what is required is not just the relationship but a long and successful relationship. In an unpredictable economy, businesses need to reorient with market changes with flexible and innovative strategies. The right partners are the ones who stand by you in executing the response to these market changes. Telkite offers you the following business models to ensure your competitive advantage in a changing marketplace with the option of combining one or more available business models to suit to your business strategy. Thanks to an array of long and successful relationship with our clients, we have proven experience to help you in selecting the business model that suits best.
Offshore Development Center (ODC)
Telkiteís core expertise is to establish Offshore Development Centers for its clients. Through this model we serve our clients with highly experienced professionals with varied skill sets, resources, flexibility and time & cost-to-market advantages allowing them to enjoy the long term gains of offshore outsourcing. Our offshore development center operates as an extension to clients' existing software engineering business. We strictly adhere to clients' business critical objectives; software engineering processes, communication and team structures are same as at client's end. Employees working in the ODCs are virtually client's employees. Round the clock development is seamlessly done with this model
Time & Material
Telkite's Time & Material Business Model offers its clients the flexibility to alter requirement specification, team size and time line of projects based on market trends and feedback. This model suits best for most of the projects due to software development project's inherent need of altering specification throughout the development life cycle. Client pays monthly fee per resource (development, testing or management).
Telkite offers a Fixed Price Business Model for projects where requirement specifications and time lines are clearly defined and frozen. This helps clients if they have a fixed budget for development and are sure about their requirements. We work with our client to define expected deliverables to determine a mutually agreed fixed price.
Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT)
If required and proposed, Telkite offers the option of transferring personnel and/or Offshore Development Center to clients on mutually agreeable terms. On proposal and equally affordable terms, concerned personnel can be transferred to the client site for a specified project's duration.
