Cooperation models Enginerasoft works with

At Enginerasoft, we thrive on the peculiarities and needs of software development projects. Therefore, we offer customers the following cooperation models: Fixed Price (FP), Time & Material (T&M), and Dedicated Team. In this article, we will discuss each.

Fixed Price

This model is suitable for primarily small (e.g. pilot projects) and medium-sized projects. Fixed Price includes clear requirements that do not usually change throughout the development process, deadlines, or within a fixed budget. The contractor, using the information from the customer, prepares a schedule according to which the main project stages will be carried out along with a monetary estimate based on the project complexity and volume of work required.

The advantages of the Fixed Price model:

  • You can plan the entire budget of the project in advance.
  • You have a clear plan with all stages and substages of your product development.
  • Detailed instructions and clear requirements allow you to get what you really need.
  • Ready-made solutions are delivered on specific dates.

Time & Material

This model is best for long-term projects in which the scope of work is unknown and there are no clear requirements. The client has more control over the entire project, as T&M provides more flexibility for injecting changes at any stage of product development. Pricing is based on hourly rates for the labor of a particular developer.

The advantages of the Time & Material model:

  • Suitable for projects where the scope of work is not defined
  • Greater flexibility in the development process
  • Scalable project team
  • The ability to continuously monitor work progress and see results at all stages. 

Dedicated Team 

Dedicated Team is a team consisting of specialists whose technical levels correspond to customer requirements. This model of cooperation is suitable for large companies that need to quickly expand their staff or for start-ups that want to cut costs associated with hiring new staff. The client can exercise full control over the team while the contractor carries out all the administrative activities. The monthly cost for Dedicated Team is a flat rate which includes the salaries of the team specialists and administrative expenses.

The advantages of Dedicated Team:

  • Possibility for the customer to control the team and establish own rules for reporting, quality review, and work plan
  • Individual support of specialists for the needs of a specific project
  • Reduced costs and time for hiring additional staff.
Angular Development for a Market place

Industry

Information technologies

Technologies 

Angular, TypeScript, CSS, HTML

Customer

A software development company from the United Arab Emirates

Challenge

The customer came to us with an idea to improve the front-end of a marketplace for software and service providers.

Cooperation

In this project, our development team was responsible for the front-end. Angular was selected as the main technology.

We improved the existing interface and introduced new features to the website functionality. Our solution covered all the technical requirements and provided the following opportunities:

  • User authorization: After registering, users can like posts, leave comments, share announcements, attend events, or request services
  • Access to the news feed and the blog section 
  • Access to the marketplace, where users can find appropriate IT providers for cost-effective solutions
  • Apply for a special partner program, so information about company services can be placed on the marketplace.

Results

The customer received a multifunctional, user-friendly marketplace that satisfied all his business needs. 

During our collaboration of more than one year, we significantly improved the marketplace interface and introduced a rich set of new functionality.

SpotVision Dashboard Development

Industries

Parking Communities, Parking Aggregators, VSaaS Businesses, Taxi Companies, Delivery Services, Businesses 

Technologies 

Angular, Node.js, TypeScript, CSS, HTML, Bootstrap, MongoDB.  

Customer

A software development company.

Challenge

The customer came to us with an idea to develop an AI-based mobile application that helps find free parking spaces. It was also necessary to create a dashboard for parking operators who could add video cameras to the entire system.

Cooperation

Our web team was involved in the dashboard creation and managed to complete the project in 12  months. 

This management tool has rich functionality and displays the location of video surveillance cameras. The system is connected to the AI-based mobile application, SpotVision, which helps find free parking spots. 

The dashboard has user authorization and role-based access as follows:

  • Admin (people who can manage the system with no restrictions)
  • Partner (people who can add cameras to the system and have limited access rights)
  • User (the users of the mobile application, SpotVision, with limited access rights).

A large portion of the dashboard functionality allows users to carry out the following activities:

  • Video camera management: addition, set up (parameter adjustment of the neural network for better object recognition; each camera has different parameters), removal from the system
  • Parking management: addition and removal from the system using convenient wizards
  • Quality check compliance—tracking the correctness of the neural network: find false and unnecessary object recognition 
  • Maps display geographical coordinates of video surveillance cameras. For this functionality, our team carried out an impressive job related to clustering geodata (the convenient location of cameras on the map) 
  • Real-time updates of new information in tables
  • Roles provision and recall.

The system has integrations with software by the world’s leading providers of security products and video surveillance solutions. A few of which are shown in the image below.

Results

With the help of our team, the customer managed to deliver a multifunctional management platform that has integration with their mobile app.

We continue to collaborate with the customer and improve the system functionality.

User Web Portal Development

Industries

Digital Marketing

Technologies 

Front-end: Angular, JavaScript, TypeScript, CSS/CSS3, HTML/HTML5, Webpack.

Back-end: .NET, C#, MSSQL.

Customer

The customer is a company that provides solutions for digital marketing.

Challenge

Previously for the customer, we developed a mobile application that enables payment for goods. 

Next, there was a need to create a web portal specifically for the users of the mobile app.

Cooperation

The Enginerasoft team was involved in the web portal creation. We covered all software development activities connected to the front-end and the back-end elements of the portal. 

For users who do not have an account on the mobile application, the portal is presented as a landing page with marketing information about the mobile application, promotional information, download links on Google Play and the App Store, as well as a link to a feedback form.

Users who have mobile app accounts can log in to the system and see their personal information, particularly:

  • All transactions
  • Contact support form, and
  • Personal bonuses and discounts.

This user portal can be branded for any business owner with a separate domain name.

Results

Our team delivered a stable web portal that absolutely satisfies the customer’s needs. All software development activities were completed according to the project deadlines. 

Currently, we continue our collaboration with the customer and have built our team from 2 to 50 specialists within 5 years.
