Engagement Models

iD4 engages with customers with the primary objective of bringing lasting value and true benefits of outsourced development and consulting to our customers. iD4 has been offering various business models as per the needs of the customers and their projects. iD4 working collaboratively with the customer to understand their processes and to bring out a custom solution as per their internal processes to accelerate results and provide best results. iD4 offers various business models such as :

Offshore Development

iD4's offshore development centre is located in Pune, India which is known as 'Oxford of the East' from where it executes 'Offshore Outsourced Development'. The offshore development is a cost effective model which has been leveraged by iD4's customer's round-the-clock for product development.

Onsite Deployment

Here iD4's employee(s) work as a customer's team extension from the customer’s location itself. Working closely with the customer’s team, we assist our customers in product/application development or consulting services. Our team of highly skilled engineers provide technical insights, ability and guidance to strengthen your in-house capabilities and resources all under your supervision.

Mix of Offshore and Onsite

Our onsite team acts as a front end and maintain proximity with customers while the bulk of the work happens offshore. This model is useful in case of crucial projects where direct communication is required with the clients at regular intervals. This also helps in round the clock continuous work cycle which becomes possible by making the best possible use of the time-zone difference.

Pricing Models

Fixed Price

When project specifications, scopes, deliverables and acceptance criteria are clearly defined iD4's project management team can present a not-to-exceed fixed price, fixed time proposal. Based on iD4's processes and methodologies, it can ensure reliability, predictability and optimized performance of the projects to deliver on time, on budget, on target. This way iD4 delivers cost-effective quality solutions.

Time and Material

When scope, specification and implementation plans of a software development project are not easy to define at the outset and are undergoing changes, a Time & Material Model becomes an attractive option. Under this model, iD4 assigns a project team including project management, equipment and infrastructure and the client pays as per use of the hourly development efforts, making it the most flexible of the three models. Software development project requirements tend to evolve during the course of implementation thereby necessitating additional or lesser resources. To facilitate such development, this model gives the flexibility of adjusting the client's project team size, while optimizing on the time and costs. Under this model the development effort is billed at the end of every month based on a monthly generated time sheet and a pre-negotiated hourly rate.

Extended Team

If the software engineering needs are ongoing, the engagement can be in the form of an Extended Team that works in close partnership with the customer either on co-development or completely outsourced development models. The Extended Team model helps our customers create an extension of their own development teams.Irrespective of the model of engagement, our endeavor is to add value to our customers and work as a partner and not as a vendor. Prices are tailored to meet project expectations, allowing our clients to choose a pricing model or a combination of them.
