In the dedicated hiring model, you pay us fixed fees on a monthly basis, based on blend of people that are assigned to your project. On the contrary, as the name implies, the fixed price quote is one final price that is given to you for completing the entire assignment.
Fixed Pricing, from the vendor’s perspective, generally has a built-in contingency, usually between 10-30% of what it would cost on hourly hiring basis. This figure generally depends on the clarity and complexity of the job.
For example, if it has been estimated that the job will take 300 man-hours, and the going billing rate is $10/hour, then the â€œestimatedâ€ fix price would be $3000. Â The price that is presented to the client would be 1.2 or 1.3 times that much — $3300 – $3900. So, as a client, you are “paying extra” to ensure that the job comes in at a fixed fee. There are a number of reasons why we have to do this:
Let see how dedicated hiring model saves cost. Let us assume that the project involved 20% (60 hours) design and 80% (240 hours) programming. We assume an average rate of $1100 for a dedicated offshore designer and $1450 for an average offshore programmer. Letâ€™s calculate the costs:
|Skills||Rate per 176 hours||Hours Required||Total Cost|
Thus, there I an outright saving of 21% against hourly rates and 39% against fixed price contracts.
Note: We do not accept project of less than 3 man-months duration on dedicated hiring model.Â
