Payment Terms
The following project cost estimations are considered to be the basic ones:

- "Fixed price contract" means that the project scope is described in full (by customer or by our analytical team) before the development is started. The project budget is fixed together with the scope to be developed. All changes in scope are estimated separately and realized after the initial functionality is realized. This scheme guarantees client that he will get what he needs for the agreed budget according to the project specification. Limitation of this scheme’s usage is fullness and clearness of the project requirements.

- "Development on time & material basis" means that a customer has not determined his task clearly. In this case stages of the task inception, business analysis, requirements accumulation and analysis become necessary. The customer learns an approximate project cost as soon as the task inception stage is completed. Further the project cost will be specified and by the time the analysis stage starts, the customer will have had the detailed project progress plan and the budget estimate in terms of the system development as well.

- "Cloud Staffing" means that Instead of filling the positions we create a Cloud Team and then manage it to ensure the task you assign is completed.

HOW it looks like:
you assign task to us (Cloud Team) and get the perfect result.

HOW it works:
based on the task and domain we take care of all the aspects of our Team such as identifying the right people, defining roles and compiling a team with a backup staff, setting up the process and standards, providing the necessary training and coaching, ensuring motivation of each member, carrying out monitoring and teambuilding, ensuring mutual communication between the team members and you, collecting and analyzing feedbacks to improve the result. All of these routines are out your worries.

An acceptable compromise that would combine these three approaches can be worked out in any case.
