Pinak Software Solutions offer flexible engagement models based on customer's specific requirements. The freedom to choose an appropriate model based on their immediate requirements and long-term goals leading to managed business risks. Transparency and flexibility of our engagement models lay the foundation for a long term successful relationship with our clients.

Offshore Development Center (ODC)

Typically, product companies would go for setting up their offshore development center in India for various reasons, the most important being the availability of talented engineers. For SMEs, setting up an ODC can be a painful process if they don’t have any presence in this part of the world. With Zest, there are multiple options to clients when setting up an ODC. We can help in establishing a company in India with our knowledge of the system here. We help our clients in different areas starting from forming a company, getting infrastructure in place, hiring staff members and mentoring team members to come up to speed with the relevant technologies. SMEs may want to try out setting up an ODC here before forming their own organization. Zest helps in this case, by setting up a dedicated team for the client that can be transferred to the client at a later stage.

Dedicated Resources Model (DRM)

We offer you to choose resources with specialized technical expertise in, VB.Net, Java, PHP programming, iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry based mobile application development, Software Testing, Microsoft Dynamics and SharePoint development. You can add these resources to enhance and supplement your existing on-site teams or create new offshore development team. This model best suits your growing needs for ongoing development. This model ensures that the extended team works as an extension of your team and provides resource flexibility, scalability, cost and time efficiencies, cross trained resources and the ability to adjust to peak loads. In this model resource is full time dedicated for your work and he will report to your project manager on daily basis. You can send weekly schedule of the resources. You or your project manager can directly talk to resource on phone or chat via Skype or any other messenger.

Fixed Price Model (FPM)

This model is proposed for projects that have a clear list of requirements and time schedule. It is suitable for small to medium size development projects. Based on the requirement list an estimate is prepared and send for approval to the client. The project work begins after client’s approval on requirement and cost. Here we take responsibility to deliver on time and within budget, freeing our customers to focus on their real business priorities. This works best for customers who know exactly what they want and are looking for a competitive fixed price and agreed timescale for the complete development. Successful delivery of fixed-price projects always requires a comprehensive requirements specification which has clear acceptance criteria and defines the system requirements to a level of detail and precision such that each individual requirement is testable. You can review the progress of the project during development. We provide you milestone based deliveries throughout the development cycle. This phased development process helps the customers to have clear evidence of progress and visibility of the end solution, matched by rigorous and well-documented testing processes, and post-live warranty periods.

Time & Material Model (TNM)

This model is proposed for projects that do not have a clear list of requirements and time schedule is not known. This model is suitable for medium to large development projects. In this model client pays the agreed amount for the efforts in number of development hours. The agreement is not for a particular period but for a project where the client is billed on a monthly basis or otherwise as per the agreement. In this model you have flexibility to ramp-up or down the resources based on the project progress and the modifications to the original scope.

Build, Operate & Transfer (BOT)

This model is proposed for the clients who eventually want to take over the development team. It is advisable for companies who want to have their own facility at India at later stage.
