Transform your business operations with our technology expertise and scalable IT outsourcing solutions

SOFTNET engages its clients in myriad flexible ways using our finessed engagement models

In the business of off shore outsourcing services since 2002, XICOM’s commitment to quality is evidenced in its high retention rate and the pedigree of its tier-one clientele. SOFTNET is a dynamic and perceptive partner that is quick to metamorphose the most established engagement models into an optimal model of efficiency, thus enabling our partners to maximise potential. To achieve this objective, we deploy engagement management principles that are in consonance with the eSourcing Capability Model for Service Providers (eSCM SP).

SOFTNET engagement specialists calibrate and customize the engagement models to work in synergy around the client enterprise specifics – from business goals to project management and HR practices. A neatly developed framework propels all the partnership processes, wherein a nuanced and structured dispensation is able to minimize risks while reaping all the benefits that accrue from an outsourcing venture. We provide clients with highly skilled and experienced program managers, developers, designers and architects to define, design, and build their business systems.

SOFTNET offers bespoke engagement models to meet the requirements

Fixed Cost & Time Project Model.

Dedicated Teams Model (DTM).

Our engagement models are designed after factoring in the clients’ unique business realities and requirements.

Fixed Cost & Time Project Model

The fixed cost and time project model is best suited to projects where there is absolute clarity about the project requirements and specifications. We invite our clients to discuss and define the expected deliverables and timelines for this low risk project execution model and determine the mutually agreed fixed price and time line. Our processes have been perfectly primed so as to ensure reliability and peak performance that is timely and budget bound.

This model is best suited for small scale projects where the scope, schedules and requirements of the project are specifically defined. The total cost and timeline of the development is agreed prior to the start of the project. Subsequently, we deploy the most appropriate development team, technologies and management resources to accomplish the project as agreed. Any new features or major changes later on are discussed and quoted separately. The biggest benefit that accrues from this model is timely and cost effective completion of projects on account of clearly pre-defined project specifications and deliverables.

Dedicated Teams Model (DTM)

Dedicated Teams Model (DTM) is an excellent solution if you need a complete control over human and technical resources involved into the development process. DTM features a high level of transparency, security, flexibility and scalability. All infrastructure and personnel are at your dedicated service as long as you need them for a fixed monthly fee. DTM is a good choice if you need a team of highly-qualified professionals that will exactly match your IT and business needs. This makes the development process more explicit and manageable and ensures a higher resources efficiency.

SOFTNET assigns a project manager and team of resources equipped with required infrastructure based on specific needs of client. While offering dedicated team we are able to follow and implement processes, quality frameworks and procedures with trained dedicated experts based on specific needs of clients and in this way our dedicated team works and executes projects as a development center for our client.

The advantage coming from moving your software development operations offshore is that it determines significant savings on staff, equipment and technology, giving you the possibility to concentrate more on the business part, in order to reduce risk and gain a better position on the market.
