WHY DO YOU NEED A DEDICATED TEAM?

The Dedicated Team Model has become extremely popular across many industries, including eCommerce, Finance, Big Data and even Education. It’s no wonder, seeing as this model possesses numerous advantages. We’ll just name a few for you to get a general idea why having a virtual dedicated team is such a trend today.

1.You can choose the members of the team and have full control over every decision, the same way as you can control your in-house employees.

2.Through Agile approach, you get a very clear idea of the time and resources needed for the project.

3.Everyday contact with project manager and team members allows you to get updates on the project status and to request necessary changes.

4.You can rely on the dedicated team members to make the best decisions, due to their profound understanding of your business needs and goals developed over your time working together.

At the same time, keep in mind, that hiring your personal dedicated team will cost you more than completing an average Time & Material project. You should also be ready to take an active part in your project’s development from the process of choosing team members through constant updates and negotiations till the final launch. This may lead to delays in the development process compared to the TM model.

Seeing as the dedicated team model is in-demand today, let’s take a closer look at how it works. First, you should realize there are three DT options for you to choose from.

Hire a Resource on Hourly Basis

If your project is not overly complicated and does not require too much time, hourly payment model will be the most cost-effective solution for you. This model entails dividing the project into small prioritized steps. Due to a constant stream of updates, you get to re-evaluate the tasks and alter any part of the project along the way. Using cutting edge project management programs we track all the activities of the team, so you can get a full picture of how the valuable development time is spent. The total payment for the project is calculated based on the hourly rate and the number of hours it takes to complete.

Hire a full time or part time resource

These two options are very similar and the only difference is the amount of time our developers spend working on your project. Both options give you unrestricted access to the employees you hire: designers, project managers, developers, and testers. It’s like having your own development team but without the need to supply office space and other resources. If you choose a full-time option, the team of your choosing will work for you 5 days a week and 8 hours per day. You get maximum control over their work, assigning tasks and checking progress till the project is complete.

The part-time option is basically the same, only the number of hours the team works on your tasks is lower. If you don’t need developers to devote 8 hours to your project daily, there is no reason to pay more. It’s a win-win situation, as you spend less money and our team can work on other tasks at the same time without compromising on the quality of either project.
