The hourly engagement model typically works best for clients who need a high degree of flexibility with resources due to frequently changing needs, fluctuating project volume and/or internal constraints of some form. It is also commonly used with new clients who may be seeking proof of concept. The hourly model provides maximum flexibility without requiring long-term commitment.
The monthly engagement model provides the same great benefits as the hourly model, but changes the payment mode to monthly, with a reduced rate. Resources booked on the monthly model are pulled from our project pool and guaranteed 100% utilization for that particular month, meaning the client is reserving a block of working hours for that resource in a particular month.
The dedicated model is our most popular way to engage, because it matches the typical needs of today’s software development environments, where stability, consistency and long-term commitment are highly valued (and uncommon) attributes. In the dedicated model, resources are assigned exclusively to the client.
Our clients may initially choose us for multitude of reasons—experience, expertise, stability. But they choose to stay with us because we understand what it means to be a good business partner. We strive to make OUR clients look good to THEIR clients and we’ve consistently delivered on that value proposition for over 20 years. See what our clients say about us…
In this discovery phase, SaM experts meet with stakeholders, and listen. We listen to learn about the client’s business demands, the resources needed, and the skill sets required. Together, we determine what type of engagement might work best, and discuss how SaM can fulfill all needs.
For resource-based engagements, we explore the client’s requirements on much deeper level and ensure that our resources are a good match. For project-based engagements, we do the same, but go on to review or create a detailed project scope and budget. When the scope is agreed upon, we provide time and cost estimates.
At this point, SaM provides a proposal based on the client’s preferred engagement model. We assign a senior level manager to each client at no additional cost, regardless of the type of engagement. After a discussion of the proposal and any revisions, both parties sign a Master Services Agreement.
Before launching, we introduce our resources to the client’s staff. We discuss the client’s IT environment, as well as preferred methods and timing of communication and data exchange. We address any potential technical issues, set the expectations for launch, and decide upon a launch date. For project-based engagements, we map out phases and create initial Task Orders, beginning work once the client executes the Task Order.
