ENGAGEMENT MODELS

Focal3 offers flexible business models based on successful methodologies to suit the client's requirements. We work with the client to review current IT operations, cost analysis and develop a transition plan for development, operations & personnel that will allow a "zero" downtime business transition.

The following models have been adopted by Focal3 for engagements.

Offshore Development/ Dedicated Development Center
(Targeted at - Software Development Centers, End Users)

These are generally fixed price projects without much application complexity. These are projects that give the client the maximum cost benefit (almost 40%). Here the entire project execution is done offshore with a client representative acting as the onsite contact.

Dedicated development centers comprise committed infrastructure and personnel provided by Focal3 to conduct application development or maintenance to a single client. These models function as an extension of the client's IT department and are equipped with adequate physical security.
