Our software development services are defined by the main aim of Latas SIA – construction of stable, long-term and mutually beneficial relationships with our clients and partners. Our intention and high quality of services are realized by means of cutting-edge effective methods of project implementation. We prefer agile and easily adjustable to ongoing project changes software development methods to provide customers’ requirements satisfaction, make each project successful and maintain reasonable resources planning.
To achieve better results we use the following contract types:
Time and material;
We try to make our communication with customers as comfortable and transparent as possible. This is why we use per hour fee as the pricing unit of the project implementation. Per hour fee depends on the contract type, for example, for Dedicated Team contract time the price of one hour is cheaper than for Fixed Price contract type. Besides, under any contract type the hour price varies depending on the project volume, software implementation complexity and engaged personnel.
This contract type is used if the exact project volume cannot be defined before its development starts or in case there is a possibility of project requirements changes during software development process. Since project volume is unknown, so far final price of the project cannot be stated. In such cases the project implementation is divided into stages, each of them is paid separately. Stage cost is shaped with predetermined method of calculating the cost, considering volume of implemented work and material expenses.
This contract type is the best choice for short term projects and projects which have a ready detailed requirements list (Software Requirements Specification). It is the most effective contract type when project volume and final cost can be defined at the very start of the project implementation. Customer receives official signed contract where the exact cost is stated, along with Software Requirements Specification (SRS) and work implementation schedule.
Under contract of this type we offer our customer the service of project developers’ team making and providing them with necessary operating environment. The team is subordinate to the customer or his project manager and is considered to be the remote software development center. The customer pays for the team services and necessary equipment renting (in case it is requested) using predetermined and mutually confirmed rates. Team management and their work results are controlled by the customer or his project manager too.
