Fixed Price

  • Definite and predictable project deliverables and timelines
  • Lower cost risk
  • Suitable for small projects with well-defined requirements
  • Suitable for new customer trial

We understand that outsourcing is a complex process and that offshore/nearshore software development vendors should be hired on a trial basis. This can be done with a small project or a segment of a larger one. We can start with a few weeks’ project for you to evaluate. This will allow you to evaluate our approach to the project and to establish the confidence level needed for a long-term relationship.

Softarea’s fixed price model offers customers a low-risk option and can be employed when the scope and specifications of the project are reasonably clear and documented upfront. We can help at the early stages with defining requirements. This model guarantees on-budget delivery of projects. Deliverables, costs and timelines are clearly defined. Still some delivery time deviations are possible, but we guarantee scope and fixed budget. Of course quality is the cornerstone and we always work hard to deliver top quality regardless of any other constraints.

Under this option, the client pays a pre-negotiated fixed price for the complete project, which in turn is linked to well-defined deliverables. For any change in the scope a predefined fixed hourly rate agreed at the initial stage of the start of the project is paid. For any changes there is a standard change request procedure that is followed, for which we have structured processes in place. So changes may affect the project cost and delivery timelines.

The fixed-price approach is the best way to try our services and the first step to convert to the dedicated team model.
