Home > Outsourcing > Engagement Model
Fixed Cost
This model works when the requirements, scope, services, features, timing and service levels are fixed. In this model Calibre will be paid a fixed price, pre-agreed amount for fixed deliverables and timelines. Fixed Cost model is very much workable when the client requires project performance with definable deliverables, a defined schedule, and a defined budget

How We Work 
During the development process, we focus on phase-wise delivery in order to keep up with the delivery schedule. The entire development is supervised by our project managers. Under this model, as long as the requirements remain the same, client is not in the risk of cost and time over-runs.

Benefits  
  • Predefined development life cycle
  • Almost certain results/deliverables
  • Predictive scope and cost
  • Best for smaller or defined projects
  • Lower Risk
Time & Material
This model works when the client is unsure about the requirements, scope and implementation plans for the project. In this model client has the flexibility to change the requirements at any point during the execution phase. Calibre provides skilled resources as required in the project on monthly, daily or hourly rate basis. Responsibility for managing resources and their output remains with the client.

How We Work
Under this model, we charge the client based on hourly basis. The client pays on the basis of effort / time / resources used and the project cost is a function of the total project execution time and the resources deployed.
