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 client’s 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 team’s 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.
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 Aspire, 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 client’s product. Our increasingly popular software maintenance program provides for optimization of resources, lowers cost of ownership and offers quicker turnaround time.
