Outsourcing Hiring Models

Author: Jose Chavez Barboza.

The outsourcing services consist on hiring a company by other company for it to take charge of an activity. It is expected that the hired company has enough experience to perform that task as well as to have the necessary trained human talent.

The outsourcing has many benefits for the software development. GO Consultores guarantees its clients, it has well-prepared human talent with the necessary functional knowledge to perform the assigned tasks.

GO Consultores as a consulting company wants its clients to enjoy the benefits of the outsourcing. So for that there has been established different hiring models. Each model responds to a need and situation; the following table details them:

Target Cost Contract

It applies when the project scope is delimited so that an initial estimation can be done.

The project whole cost is responsibility of both parts.

If the cost exceeds the price (due to a wrong estimation or steady changes) both parts take on the cost.

If the final cost is lower, both parts share the benefits.

Fixed price for contracts by a function point

For the customer’s benefit, this model is very adaptable to changes.

This way a cost is defined for each user story so that the customer only pays for the attended requirements and not for the initially estimated.

This model allows the customer to substitute lower-priority requirements for others that could come up over time.

Contracts per consumed hours It applies when the Project scope is volatile.

The customer administrates the human talent and distribute it within the execution projects.

Contract for a flat rate by assigned profile

It is a contract variation for consumed hours.

It is defined as a lower flat rate than the contract for hours so that it applies for projects of extended periods.

It is very important that the client determines which model best corresponds to his/her situation.  Each one has its advantage, Go Consultores has experience in any of those. For determining the model better suits the client, it is necessary to meet, check out the project recorded information to determine the degree of ripeness and uncertainty.

Once this information is received, the proper model will be recommended for the customer.

Any of these models can suit the services the company offers. Please contact us through the following form.
