Depending on your requirements, timing, and the budget, we will offer you to choose from the following types of contracts for software development: fix-price, OCD/ODT, and time and materials one. All of them include:
Ideal for small-size or urgent projects. Fixed bid perfectly works when the project specifications are clearly defined and unlikely to change.
In a T&M contract, the customer should be able to estimate the hours needed for a job and negotiate lower hourly rates to reduce the total software development cost.
This kind of software development model is a perfect solution for any business willing to augment the development productivity, extend current team and/or reduce additional expenses on hiring extra staff or investing into other resources.
Benefits of the ODC/ODT contract type:
After choosing a type of software development contract, it is time to decide on the most suitable type of workflow. SCAND engineers are skilled at implementing any kind of workflow requested by the customer. We could split traditional frameworks and use the hybrid approach, taking the best suitable elements from Agile, Scrum, Kanban, and ‘old faithful’ Waterfall.
Agile development methods are more efficient when the final goal of the project is not defined and the customer wants the development team to react to the changed requirements rapidly and effectively.
Waterfall software development is ideal for static projects, when the customer’s requirements are set and the changes are not likely to happen through the development process.
To manage the development of complex software in fixed-length iterations, the Scrum approach could be the best matching. The development process is divided into sprints, and the team interacts with the customer once the sprint is completed.
This approach is based on Agile but involves a bigger visual component. The benefit of Kanban is that it gives businesses an opportunity to be reactive towards customers’ demands instead of trying to predict the needs.
If you think that the documentation provided could work for both sides, we are happy to create an initial prototype of your project. Once we reach an agreement on the project, we conclude a contract and decide on the best software development methods.
