Fixed Budget Model
Fixed Price engagement is a perfect fit short-term projects where the project scope is set or tiny. Looking to get a hassle-free, time-saving result and have no time to delve into specifications? The optimum way to estimate the project and follow your business idea through is to engage our consulting and technical resources. The key advantages of the Fixed Budget model are:
- The project budget is limited to the particular amount so you know clearly how much you will spend.
- Time limits are well-defined.
- We make detailed plan and documentation, for Fixed Budget projects.
You have to note that the main condition for Fixed Budget model is that you should have detailed specifications of the projects you need to be implemented, before they start. It will help us estimate the price and time limits. If your specifications change during the development process, additional work is paid over budget due to our Time & Material rates.

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