Fixed price is a kind of engagement model with predictable budgets and set timelines, which work best for short-term projects. A fixed price model is used more often while outsourcing turnkey software development, however, it remains a typical model for staff augmentation services that one can presuppose in fixed hourly rates of developers as well.
Commonly managed IT services are data backup, system management, cloud transformation, data warehouse, data storage, network security, and others. These services are used mainly by enterprises while staff augmentation is merely a body shopping approach which can be used by product development companies and very seldom by the corporations.
Staff augmentation is one of the outsourcing models. The latter is more often associated with the turnkey software development when clients hire dedicated teams, for example, to develop a software solution from end to end, following all stages of SDLC.
Time and Material is also one of the most popular outsourcing engagement models and types of payment contracts. It fits best when you know that your requirements will definitely change, and you will need regular reporting on project progress, along with wishing to balance the time spent along with the quality provided. The following model remains definitely good for the long-term projects.
At Ask Esquare, we will thoroughly screen all candidates and ensure that we only supply experts of the relevant caliber. We leverage smart and rigorous screening processes and curate best talent. In a typical Ask Esquare engagement, in almost all cases will introduce you to the candidates within 1 week.
The difference between our staff augmentation services and those provided by other out staffing companies or recruiting agencies is account management. All clients that cooperate with us get a dedicated account manager. This person responsible for creating the most comfortable environment for collaboration. He or she will always be available to solve any client issues or questions that are related to the dedicated staff or the project flow in general.
Initially, we ask our clients the following questions to better understand what they need –
- What software products are you developing?
- How many people are already involved in it?
- How many people do you need to scale up?
- What level of seniority should these specialists have?
- What exact skills or expertise do you require?
- Do you need a project manager?
We shall require an initial deposit of $500 that will be applied as a credit to your first invoice once you make a hire. If you decide not to move forward, your deposit will be refunded completely.
While we rigorously screen all applicants to ensure talent and intelligence, we understand that not every person will be a perfect fit for every company. For this reason, we ask our clients to interact with them before starting any work. Still, if anything comes like this we have replacement options.
If this is truly is a requirement, we can work with you to coordinate relocating individuals or teams to your locations for specified time periods.
We enter into talent agreements with every member of the talent network. Through these agreements, Ask Esquare obtains exclusive ownership of the work created by the talent that works with you. We then provide you the required intellectual property for the work that the talent creates under our client agreements. This clean, simple, pass-through arrangement will definitely work well for our clients for many years. However, if you would like the experts to enter in direct agreements with you to effect the direct transfer of IP properties, we can definitely work with you and ensure that the needs are met.
The staff augmentation model definitely offers a lot of promising opportunities for businesses. Firstly, you can acquire the resources exactly which you need.
Imagine, you need a specific technology to build some particular module or features for your software product. Your in-house team members don’t possess this specific knowledge and skills, and it will surely take lots of time to study those. You would probably search for an expert in this technology to join your team and they will help you develop the solutions. However, you can further understand that you don’t need this person to work permanently with you. Augmenting staff externally becomes a perfect fit to hire experienced developers for limited periods of time. They complete the jobs and you will pay precisely for what they’ve done.
We typically invoice our clients twice a month, though some flexibility is definitely offered there.
We’ll need around 2-4 weeks to hire the candidates from our recruitment pipeline. It will take us 1-2 weeks for finding people in the market. Overall, our hiring process can last up to 21 business days which is twice shorter than if you were hiring with the help of a traditional recruiting agency.
Absolutely, you can. We send test assignments to candidates. The tasks can be prepared by specialists from the client’s side as well as by our tech team leads or senior specialists with regard to your project specifics. Usually, it takes approximately 3-4 days to send, complete, check, and give feedback on the completed test.
Of course, our clients are present on interviews and their questions are welcome. An interview between a client and a candidate is held once candidates are shortlisted. So, you don’t need to speak to a great number of people. It saves time and provides a clearer picture of potential team members.
One of the key staff augmentation processes is to define how you will communicate with the new team members. So, we prepare a well-structured communication plan, including the preferred communication channels and hours, and agree on it with you.
As mentioned, we take care of both our clients and employees as we understand all the negative effects of employee attrition for software development projects. Thus, we develop special benefit programs, sign-on bonuses, referral programs, sick leave, and vacation policies, personal development plans, and much more to ensure the most comfortable working environment.
We go to every possible length to ensure that this does not happen. At Esquare, we completely understand that dependability has an utmost importance. We take measures to ensure that availability and reliability should become a top priority for our experts. However, in the extremely unlikely circumstance that such a situation arises, Ask-Esquare will have a backup option for resources so that your business does not get impacted.
Do you offer services such as screening, vetting, and testing to help us hire employees outside the network?
While we currently do not supply these services, we have plans to offer them in future.
