I noticed several differences between Girikon and the previous firm that we engaged with. The major difference was the daily communication.
Girikon’s clients range from small start-up companies to Fortune 500 global enterprises, and our services range from a single resource to a full-scale turn-key outsourcing solution. An experienced and technically proficient outsourcing partner, Girikon enables you to compress software development time, reduce development costs, and achieve the shortest time-to-market possible. We take full responsibility for the offshore development of your custom project thus enabling you to focus your time, energy and resources on the core business, increasing sales and market share.
Girikon is focused on developing long-term strategic relationships with our clients. With this goal in mind, we provide the flexibility that best serves your unique business requirements thus ensuring a successful partnership with us. You have the option to select one of the following business models as well as combine one or more available models to suit various phases of your project development lifecycle.
Fixed Price model is suitable for projects with well defined requirements and schedules. When your need is clearly specified in sufficient detail, Girikon estimates the project scope and complexity and provides a project delivery schedule along with the fixed price for the complete project development. Under this business model, Girikon ensures quality delivery of the final product within a pre-scheduled timeframe, and the client pays a mutually agreed fixed price for the project. The primary advantage of the Fixed Price model consists in allowing the client to determine exactly the project budget in advance. However, in comparison with the Time & Materials model, Fixed Price contracts tend to be less flexible for managing changes and additional feature requests. Any requirement changes or new feature requests occurring during the project implementation process will cause a re-negotiation of the delivery schedule and price.
When the project scope, specification and implementation plans cannot be precisely defined at the outset or requirements can vary during the project implementation process, the Time & Material model provides the flexibility of modulating the size and workloads of the development team assigned to your project, while optimizing time and costs. Under the Time & Material option, Girikon offers our skilled resources, and the development effort is billed at the end of every month based on the pre-negotiated and mutually agreed hourly rate. Hence, the total project cost is determined by the amount of time and resources expended. The advantage here is that Time & Material model offers you a high degree of flexibility to alter specifications, accommodate unplanned activities rapidly, and adjust project resources based upon your evolving requirements throughout the project development lifecycle. Girikon also provides you with the flexibility to switch to the Fixed Price model once the project scope becomes clearly defined and the requirements are firmed up.
Through the Dedicated Offshore Team model Girikon serves its clients as a strategic development partner, providing a pool of highly experienced IT professionals with a wide range of skill sets and proven technology practice areas along with the infrastructure dedicated to your projects. Girikon’s Offshore Development Center can be integrated with the client’s existing processes to fully support design, development, quality assurance, version control, backup and recovery, thus operating as an efficient and seamless extension of the client’s software engineering facility.
The Dedicated Offshore Team trained on your line of business, systems and processes can be changed in size when necessary ensuring quick response to your resource requirements. Empowered with transparent project management and progress tracking processes coupled with high-speed communication infrastructure, our clients have full control over the dedicated offshore team committed to their project. Through setting up an Offshore Development Center and working with a dedicated development team, our clients can enjoy all the benefits of the offshore outsourcing, including cost-effective resources, flexibility and time-to-market advantages.
