Soluzione is an agile partner, flexible in tuning the established engagement models
and helping you make the most out of the partnership. Our engagement specialists

Your product and business is unique, and at Soluzione, we always keep that in mind.
We offer you total flexibility to choose the best suited engagement model. We also
offer blended models to meet your specific needs. Software development engagement
models are diverse. Soluzione management team developed several models related to
software development processes which proved to suit our customers very well.
Soluzione offers five possible software development engagement models on a high
Software Consultancy Model
Soluzione offers consultancy services, typically used to kick start a specific initiative
or address a particular problem. Our consultancy services are best used for enterprise
and solution architecture design, software development, software selection, business
and engineering analysis, and testing supervision, enhancement and migration strategy
Our consultants use their technical & domain expertise with a collaborative approach
to create scalable models on modern technologies. The choice of engagement model
for consulting is the model that mitigates risks appropriately whether it is fixed
cost, time & materials basis or a percentage of project cost.
Resource Outsourcing Model
You can choose to hire our developers with specific technical expertise (.net, SharePoint,
testing, graphics, and project management) to enhance and supplement your existing
teams. This model best suits the needs of clients who have on-going development
needs. This model ensures that the extended team works as an extension of the client's
team and provides resource flexibility, extensive scalability, cost and time efficiencies,
cross trained resources and the ability to adjust to peak loads.
This model incorporates a pool of specialized, multi-disciplinary resources that
are organized and managed by Soluzione to meet the client's explicit business objectives.
These resources may be expected to follow processes and standards as per client's
requirement while working in our development centre. Work time of the resource is
reserved for a client, and he is expected to keep the workload of the resource at
the agreed specified level.
Global Fixed Price Model
Soluzione offers global fixed-price project solutions for application development
where we assume the risk and responsibility to deliver on time and within budget,
freeing our customers to focus on their real business priorities. This works best
for customers who know exactly what they want and are looking for a competitive
fixed price and agreed timescale for the complete development.
Based on our past experience, the successful delivery of fixed-price projects always
requires a comprehensive requirements specification which has clear acceptance criteria
and defines the system requirements to a level of detail and precision such that
each individual requirement is test-able. This requirements document may be the
result of an earlier consulting engagement with Soluzione (or other competent third-party)
or the customer's own analysis.
During fixed-price projects, we focus on making staged deliveries of working code
throughout fixed-price projects in order to provide our customers with clear evidence
of progress and visibility of the end solution, matched by rigorous and well-documented
testing processes, and post-live warranty periods.
Time and Materials (collaborative and agile projects) Model
When project requirements are evolving continuously, time & materials model is best
suited. In this model Soluzione assigns a project team including project management,
equipment and infrastructure and the client pays Soluzione per use of the hourly
Software development project requirements tend to evolve during the course of implementation
thereby necessitating additional or lesser resources. This model facilitates changes
in resource types and numbers to suit the needs of the project, while optimizing
on the time and costs. Under this model the development effort is billed at the
end of every month based on a monthly generated time sheet and a pre-negotiated
hourly rate. Often, your Product Manager will be in direct collaboration with our
Integrated Teams Model
This is a type of engagement derived directly from the Time and Materials model.
The main difference being that the Project Manager is located at the customer site
and rest of the team works in-house. Usually, we use this model for long term, complex
software development projects where the full development cycle is being required.
The overall project benefits from the expertise of all integrated teams and availability
of our resource and direct interaction with customer full-time.
