Rigidity does not work in businesses. This is why we introduce multiple engagement models for our clients worldwide so they can choose how exactly they want to engage with us.

Olive India believes in maintaining an outsourcing partnership which is flexible and adaptable and offers multiple engagement models to meet diverse needs of global clients.

Outsourcing is all about partnership, about entrusting your business process. We believe in maintaining a partnership that is flexible and adaptable and based around the diverse needs of our global clients. This is the reason why we offer various engagement models to meet those diverse needs. You can choose from one of the generally accepted models or a combination of them for various phases of your project. We also work with our clients to customize a model to address their specific needs.

Fixed Time/Fixed Price

  • In this model, the total cost and timeline of the software development is finalized and agreed prior to the start of the project
  • This model is ideal when the scope, schedules and requirements of the project are specifically defined
  • With Fixed Time/Fixed Price model, clients get a cost-effective and low-risk option of outsourcing. This model guarantees on-time, on-budget delivery of projects.

Effort based pricing on Time & Material

  • In the Effort based pricing model, the project cost is a function of the total project execution time and the corresponding resources deployed.
  • This engagement model is particularly useful in contexts where the projects are quite complex and are prone to specification and design changes midstream.
  • This model is ideal for customers who need quick access to resources where requirements are not clearly defined. It gives customer greater flexibility in terms of developing the project specification on an ongoing basis and modifying the specifications based on the changing market needs.

Offshore Development Center (ODC)

  • In this case, an Offshore Development Center (ODC) is setup outside the client’s premises. The client assures work for a dedicated number of resources for a particular amount of time. ODC is solely engaged in developing and supporting software solutions and applications for client.
  • This refers to a long-term work agreement where ODC acts as a virtual extension of the client’s operations
  • This model is ideal for clients who have a need for IT resources on a continuous basis. It guarantees reduction in total cost of operations.

Build Operate Transfer

  • Build Operate Transfer model starts off as an ODC with buying out option after the relationship reaches a minimum pre-agreed price and stipulated time frame
  • This model offers client all the benefits of ODC and option to transfer the ODC as its own subsidiary
  • It guarantees lower setup costs, risk reduction and flexibility.
