We combine the best methodologies to create an efficient, transparent, predictable, and controllable process.

Global delivery: The right shore for you

This developmental approach allows FLS to work with a variety of different project scenarios that complements the comfort level of our customer to ensure a successful outcome.

The optimal combination of onsite and offshore resources provides a high-quality project delivery solution.

DELIVERY MODELS

Offshore/Nearshore delivery

Under this model, all project activities are performed at our offshore/nearshore facilities.

Benefits

  • Low cost
  • quick ramp-up times

Projects are executed with process-centric templates and metrics.

In some cases, we recommend a limited time onsite presence for key offshore personnel. This serves for faster onboarding, knowledge transfer, and developing trust.

Onsite delivery

Under this model, we place the most-qualified software professionals at the client's location.

Benefits

  • personal contact with the team / developing trust
  • faster turnaround times for feedback
  • no issues with time zone differences

Hybrid delivery model

This model combines both the onsite and offshore scenarios.

The roles that are best suited for working onsite are:

  • program/project managers
  • architects
  • business analysts
  • technical leads
  • QA lead
  • senior developers.

The onsite team interacts with the client team and manages the offshore team.

Benefits

  • around the clock delivery
  • scalability
  • personal contact with the team and developing trust
  • minimizing the issues with time zone differences
  • faster turnaround times for feedback.

ENGAGEMENT MODELS

Project Work

The engagement is contracted for a specific application development project based on the customer’s requirements.

We support the projects in all stages:

  • Technology research and Selection
  • Prototyping
  • Development
  • Testing
  • Deployment and support.

When to choose:

  • if you have a specific challenge that is limited in scope and/or time
  • as a first engagement proof-of-concept project
  • to gauge future metrics and commit to a longer-term business relationship.

Dedicated Team, or Dedicated Offshore Development Center (ODC)

When to choose:

  • If your strategic objective is to augment in-house software development with an external partner
  • recurring streams of software development work, e.g. software product vendors. It is a strategic commitment to outsourcing.

Within our offices, ODCs operate with a high degree of autonomy from the rest of the company. They have a dedicated physical space, networks, access, security, and follow customer off-shore requirement rules. We take IP protection very seriously. ODCs routinely pass stringent security audits by our customers.

PRICING MODELS

Different pricing models lend themselves to different conditions.

Fixed-price

It works best in development projects where the scope is clearly defined and is unlikely to change.

Time and Materials (T&M)

Fits best for projects with more fluid requirements, where the customer has to respond to changing market conditions.

ODC agreements usually employ some variation of T&M pricing.
