Fixed Price Model is employed for customers who have well-defined project requirements and schedules for the solution they want to develop. As per this model, the client pays an agreed fixed price for the corresponding project scope discussed. These project costs are in turn is linked to well-defined deliverables/ milestones. EVERS at the onset of the project bidding process defines these deliverables/ milestones with the cost break-up at each of these deliverables thus enabling the client to reduce risk by visibly monitoring progress of the project.
Change Management: EVERS is committed to complete the development as per the scope of the work defined and agreed to within the cost provided. However it is our experience that in such Fixed-Price Projects there may be cases/ functionality/ features which may have been missed by the client in the specifications. These are taken as part of the Change Management process. The change request management is a key process for a Fixed Price projects.
EVERS has a structure and well-defined process for managing any changes that may be required during or after the project duration. All such changes are tracked through a change request form. This form is provided by EVERS to the client to specify the Change(s) required in the system. EVERS after detailed analysis of the changes would do the cost and effort analysis and intimate the client about the same.
A change would be defined as those, which are not defined in the scope of work either in terms of addition, deletion and/or change in Functionality (Business Logic), User Interface, the database and/or any other such aspect of the system. EVERS will charge the work to be done on an hourly basis as defined and agreed by both parties.
Largely for fixed cost projects we follow the Waterfall development methodology, but we also opt for the Agile model if the need arises. Be it the industry tested waterfall development methodology, or the efficient agile development framework, or even the expansive full time equivalents approach; EVERS has perfected these processes to ensure world class quality, security and delivery.
In delivering solutions we ensure that clients kept actively involved and regularly updated on the project progress. At the onset of the project, clear communication channels are established. Transparent communication, strong planning and an in-depth understanding of the project requirements go a long way in ensuring that we succeed in all our endeavors.
