Outstaffing

Cost model

In general there are two models of outstaffing. The first one is called “cost model”- when the client pays fixed amounts of money per person, and the company manages this money. It pays the person at its own discretion, which also can include bonuses.

Cost plus

The second one is called “the cost plus” – the customer knows how much he or she pays to a person and also covers all additional expenses, taxes, including holidays, equipment, bonuses, office, and the company’s margin is also included here. Cost Plus is a more open model, as the customer fully participates in the process. Hence, there are less risks for the client we provide our services to. The difference between outsourcing and outstaffing is that outsourcing copes with the full project, while outstaffing specifically means hiring individuals to work remotely.

The ways we work

Outstaffing

We specialize in setting up efficient teams for you and your company. Together with you we select the software developers for your team. From our office, your team only works for you. We also take care of the work and software development environment. You and your team can manage the team members directly and daily. If you prefer to do this via a Project Leader, this is also possible.

+  Your own team of experienced software developers who work as an extension of your own project team and company.

– To make this way of working as efficient as possible, it would be good to have enough work for the team at all times. Although flexible adding or reducing developers is possible.

Vouchers

Vouchers for certain amounts of development hours of outsourcing per month. Vouchers of ten’s of  hours are possible. Vouchers are paid in advance for a month.

+ The amount of reserved software development hours of the voucher are guaranteed available for your projects.

– It can be difficult to indicate the required amount of development hours in advanc

Time and materials

The required budget is based on the actual software development hours worked and “material costs” (such as software licenses). During the quotation phase we give you an indicative expected budget based on your wishes and ideas. You can use this way of collaboration e.g. when the requirements of your software application are not yet completely clear.

+ You only pay for the actual hours worked and the ‘materials’ used.

– Although we give you an indicative expected budget, the actual required budget may differ.

Fixed price

Based on your requirements and ideas, we provide you with the project plan and the required budget for the realization of your software application. As the name “fixed price” implies, the budget (and the planning) remains the same even though we would have estimated the initially needed budget too low, therefor its our responsibility to come up with the fixes price. If changes are desired during the project, it may of course be the case that the budget and the planning after agreement change. The budget is paid in installments linked to mutually agreed milestones.

+ Budget-related risk is out of your hands.

– Normally this comes with a higher required budget to cover contingencies and related costs.

As No Name wants to serve our loyal customers the best way possible, It is always negotiable to agree on a different way of working than those mentioned above.
