At PayCube , we realize the need for flexibility and nimbleness. We can modulate the Engagement model based on the nature of the project, PayCube’s role, team size, locations, etc. Fitness to Purpose is the core driver of deciding which engagement model is best suited for our customers
Below are some of the engagement models we have used thus far for projects which PayCube controls
IT Contingent Staffing: PayCube can also provide contingent IT staff and workforce with the right skills, specifically for projects which are generally controlled and driven by our customers.
Strategy engagements require very high interaction with the client stakeholders. For such engagements, PayCube recommends using onsite and offsite resources for the duration of the project or the phase.
The same is true for deployment stages where being co-located with the technical team of the client moves things much faster and eliminates any potential communication gaps.
Generally, basic application development can be managed well with a blended engagement mode. Such teams have about 10-30% of the team onsite and the rest at offshore. The Offshore team performs under the guidance of the onsite team. While bringing down the general cost of the engagement, it still reduces the risk profile of the projects.
For projects with very clear requirements definitions in the form of systems specifications, it is possible to use a full offshore development model. The Offshore PMO communicates with the client directly from offshore If a strategy and FRD stage of the project is done at onsite and is fully documented, then full offshore model may be selected for development and build out phase.
IT Skills are diverse and the nature of technology initiatives can warrant the need for short or long term skills which might not exist within a customer’s current environment. PayCube participates closely with its customers to fill these gaps in terms of staff augmentation and contingent workforce management.
