Delivery Models

With our headquarters located in Dallas, Texas and a global development facility in Hyderabad, India, we offer a choice of delivery models based on client requirements, nature of the assignment and the services being delivered.

Dedicated Team

A team or an individual, trained on your systems and environment, will be assigned to you. This team will be working on Projects/Tasks that you assign to them within the scope of the engagement. Teams can be made up of Developers, QA or Administrators (Salesforce), and assigned to development and/or support work.

Shared Team

When there is not enough work to keep an entire team occupied, a Shared team is an option. Typically, an  individual trained on your systems and environment, will be assigned to you. This team will be working on Projects/Tasks that you assign to them within the scope of the engagement. Teams can be made up of Developers, QA or Administrators (Salesforce), and assigned to development and/or support work. Since it is a shared team, turn-around times for tasks will be slower than that of a dedicated team.

Block of Hours

For those instances where there isn’t enough regular work, you can buy a Block of Hours and use them over a period of time. The hours expire if unused for an extended period of time. Details of this model vary by the size of the block and the nature of the work. Contact an AppShark account representative for more details.

Projects

For customers that have a well-defined project with a fixed scope, AppShark can provide a project team to work on that project.

Offshore

We provide project based estimates including time, effort and a fixed cost. This approach is ideal for small projects that have well-defined and fixed scope. Weekly customer demos ensure on-track development while all scope changes are carefully controlled to maintain costs.

Offsite (Global Development Center)

A skilled development team is dedicated to the client’s project. Based on the agile development methodology, this model allows maximum flexibility and is ideal for medium to large projects since it has defined scrums with definitive scope, cost and duration.

Blended (Offsite & Onsite)

Suitable for Projects that need on-site coordination and management by AppShark staff, this model places a team/representative from AppShark at the client’s location to coordinate the day-to-day activities, oversee offshore delivery and facilitate communication between the offshore team and the client stakeholders.
