Artech offers multiple commercial models from which our clients can
choose. These models offer comfort and flexibility in an extremely
cost effective manner. Some commercial models that we offer are
listed below, but if required, we will be willing to restructure the
model to meet client requirements.
Time and Material model
In cases where the work is better defined in terms of people (e.g. a
maintenance project needing the support of 4 people full time), we
offer a time and material pricing. In such a case our resources will
be self managed, with a senior member of the team fulfilling the
role of project manager. We will submit regular status reports and
time sheets to the client for their approval.
Flexible Time and Material model
We will provide flexibility to allow for changes in the staffing
level as required. This will allow our clients to maintain optimum
staffing levels with provision to top up resources (or reduce
resources) based on business requirements. While advance planning of
resource changes is most useful in this model, we will be
accommodative to sudden changes in clients business needs.
Fixed Price model
We offer firm fixed price quotes for project where the scope of work
and processes have been clearly defined and agreed to in the
beginning. In cases where this is not possible at the very beginning
of an engagement, but we expect it to happen a short time into the
engagement, we can offer an initial time and material pricing model
based on mutually agreed staffing levels. However, after we have
gained a reasonable understanding of the application and its
framework, we will be in a better position to offer an alternative,
fixed price model for specific projects where the scope of work is
well established and convert the contract to a fixed price contract.
