Collaboration Models

How does Optimum-web collaborate with customers? It is very easy to determine how you best communicate with your outsourcing provider. Based on the business strategy and current customer needs, we identify three models to collaborate.

Dedicated Development Team

This model is applied for long-term projects. Is there hardship with stable project estimation? Scope of work is not complete or new features are being scheduled to add? Let‘s leverage tailored Dedicated Development Team to speed the project up and reduce costs.

This is the case when you want to outsource not business idea but developing project or part of project controlled by your specialists. For these purposes you need experienced and reliable team of developers. The advantages of this collaboration model:

  • Our professionals working only for you.
  • You are able to select, test and manage the members of your team.
  • You will have direct access to all members of the team.
  • Dedicated team contract is very flexible.
  • Negotiable cost depending on your requirements.
  • No start up or maintenance costs or taxes.


Another variation of Dedicated Team model is Dedicated Development Center (DDC). This type of Dedicated Team allows you to have the team of developers as your own remote team. Unlike classic Dedicated Team DDC allows you to have your own project management of the team. The company provides only working space, infrastructure, legal assistance etc. All the financial relationship between your company and DDC members are made directly. Optimum-web requires only monthly fee for DDC support services, unlike classic Dedicated Team, where all the payments are made through Optimum-web.

Fixed Budget Model

This model is applied for short-term projects mainly. You keep in mind clear business idea and have no time to penetrate into specification? The optimum way to estimate project and follow your business idea through is to engage our consulting and technical resources. Advantages of this model are as follows:

  • The project budget is limited to the particular amount so you know clearly how much you will spend.
  • Time limits are well-defined.
  • For Fixed Budget projects we make detailed plan and documentation.


You have to note that Fixed Budget model main condition is that you should have detailed specifications for the projects before it starts so that we could be able to estimate the price and time limits. If your specificatios change during the development process, additional work is paid over budget due to our Time & Material rates.

Time & Material

Time & Material model is used for long-term projects that have no clear plan and specifications. You pay for company’s services in parts according to the contract. Each month Optimum-web will send you invoice including hours count for this month, hourly rate and amount that should be paid.


  • Negotiable and flexible budget.
  • Possibility to pay in parts.
  • This model is the least risky – the development process can be stopped at any time you need.
