Engagement models refer to how clients of any software development company connect with them. CodersDaddy offers four main engagement models, providing our clients with various options when building their outsourcing partnership with us. We encourage all of our clients to select the engagement model that will best suit their business needs, as it will impact the result of their outsourcing experience, its cost-effectiveness, and overall success. Our engagement models can be customized to meet your company’s needs, ensuring that we always provide you with the most cost-effective solution possible. Here are four different engagement models we offer:
Fixed Price Model
The Fixed Price Model is a popular choice for those who don’t want any surprises. The fixed price model is best for small projects with well-defined scope and requirements. You’ll know exactly how much the project will cost, and we’ll work with you to ensure everything stays on track. It’s also perfect for when you have an idea of what needs to be done but need someone else to do it.
Benefits of fixed price model
- You have a set budget that you can stick to without worrying about overspending.
- You know exactly what you’re getting for your money.
- There are no surprises when it comes to the final bill.
- You can easily plan and forecast with a fixed price model.
- Fixed price models are often quicker to complete than other engagement models.
- They can be less risky than other models, as you know what you’re paying upfront.
- Fixed price models can help build trust between client and agency, as both parties know what they’re getting into from the start.
- Fixed price engagements provide clarity of service cost upfront.
- The fixed fee is not contingent on project scope or outcome so there’s no need to worry about change orders or unexpected costs.
Time and material model
The time and material model is an engagement model where the client pays for the resources and the hours spent working on the project. This type of engagement is often used when the scope of work is not well defined or if the project is expected to have a lot of changes. When this engagement model is used, getting an accurate estimation of the total cost can be challenging because different project parts might take more or less time than initially planned. This model only works when you are able to charge enough for your services that you are still profitable even with change requests coming in throughout the process.
Benefits of fixed price model
- With the time and material model, you only pay for the completed work.
- This engagement model is excellent for businesses with a tight budget but still need quality work done.
- You have more control over the project since you can dictate how many hours are worked on it each week.
- The time and material model is also flexible, so if your project scope changes, the price won’t change.
- This model is also beneficial because you can see the progress made each week and ensure you’re happy with it.
Dedicated developer model
The dedicated developer model is when you hire a full-time developer to work on your project. This is a great option if you have a large project or need someone to be available at all times during the development process. You will have complete control over the developers working on your project and can give them specific instructions. Plus, you can rest assured knowing that your project is in good hands since the developers are fully dedicated to seeing it through to completion.

Offshore software development center
An offshore software development center is where software development takes place outside the company’s home country. This can be done for a variety of reasons, such as to take advantage of lower labor costs or to tap into a larger pool of talent. Offshore software development centers can be either owned & operated by the company themselves or outsourced to a third-party provider.
- Cost-effectiveness: You only pay for the actual work done – there are no hidden costs or extras.
- Access to a large pool of skilled resources: You can tap into a global talent pool and find the best resources for your project, regardless of location. The organization’s staff will ensure that each developer has all the required training, certifications, and skills.
- Industry experts: Developers have extensive experience in certain industries like mobile apps development; finance industry; telecommunications; ecommerce/retail; education/medical sector, etc., enabling them to advise you on how to be more effective at solving problems in their area of expertise.
- Clients receive regular updates from the team about what they’ve been working on during their previous sprints or days – often before it’s even completed!
