Engagement Models


Dedicated Development Center
This is the most preferred model by our clients, this model is also known as Offshore Development Center (ODC) or Dedicated Development team (DDT). This is an extension to client’s software development team who is mainly looking for a long term gain. Parallel Minds has mainly been offering dedicated team to our clients. We offer team of various sizes from software developer, QA, Project manager based on client needs. If your company is considering the option of outsourcing the development of a software solution or is looking for dedicated software developers to complement an existing team, creating an offshore development center with Parallel Minds will not only save you money but also ensure the timely and successful delivery of project.

You are free to choose your team by interviewing them or taking a competence test. The dedicated team works under your complete control. We provide all other infrastructure like workspace, furniture, computer systems, consumables, uninterrupted power supply and high-speed internet connectivity. Any specific hardware or 3rd party software required for your project will have to be borne by you. We strictly adhere to clients' business critical objectives while mutually considering the ideas, design validations, development processes, test plans and schedules for implementing the project under consideration. All software professionals in the dedicated team work under your instruction and are directly accessible by email, instant messenger and phone, anytime you need them. The dedicated team will be available to you at a fixed fees per person per month.

Fixed price (Project Based)
In this model, we offer to execute a software project at a fixed price. This model is generally followed where the project specifications are clearly defined in terms of their requirements, schedules and project path. Ideally, the client has a well-defined SRS (Software Requirement Specifications) document and has defined all other details like technology platforms, database model, software architecture and other required technical aspects. We undertake such projects with a fixed price quote and deliver them in due time with best quality.

Occasionally, a fixed-price project may require additional programming work due to change or addition in scope during the development phase. Under such circumstances, it is possible to revise the fixed-price based on the new scope of project or continue development within the scope & fixed price and then switch to another model such as hourly charges model.

Time and Material Model
This model is suitable for projects, which, are in their initial stage of development where specifications have not yet been clearly defined. Through the Time & Material Business Model, Parallel Minds offers its clients the flexibility to alter specifications based on upcoming market trends. Under this model, you pay as per use of the hourly development efforts. Under this mode we define the business model and work hand in hand with our client for execution of end-to-end project.

The development life cycle is controlled by client inputs and direction. There are no hidden charges or any other additional costs involved. This provides you complete independence and flexibility to get the project developed end-to-end as per your budget provisions. Parallel Minds provide provides knowledgeable, skilled, motivated, energetic and competent consultants who work seamlessly as part of client teams to provide quality solutions. Before any such project begins, we provide you the effort estimates, project timeline, material/resource estimates and other vital figures to help you decide on financials.
