In an unpredictable economy, businesses need to counteract market changes with flexible innovative business strategies. The right partners will be the ones who stand by you in executing the response to these market changes. Zestard offers you the following business models to ensure your competitive advantage in a changing marketplace. You have the option to combine one or more available models as part of your business strategy.
Time & Materials
Through the Time & Material Business Model, Zestard offers its clients the flexibility to alter specifications based on upcoming market trends. This model is suitable for projects, which, are in the initial stages of development where specifications have not yet been clearly defined. The client pays an hourly development fee; which is a fee agreed mutually at the time of contract signing. Hence, the cost is determined by the amount of time and resources expended. The client may revise the size of the Zestard team, and at the same time, optimize the cost and duration of the project.
Zestard follows a Fixed Price Business Model for projects that are specifically defined in terms of their requirements, schedules and project path. Under this business model, we work with our clients to define their expected deliverable outcomes to determine a mutually agreed fixed price. We leverage this model in areas where we have domain expertise and accurately defined evaluation processes to set up the resource devotion. Zestard's focus is to deliver consistency and excellence in executing projects in a timely and, cost efficient fashion.
Offshore Development Center (ODC) Model
Zestard has a state-of-the-art development center in India, which enables its clients to leverage the technical expertise of India. Through this model we serve our clients with highly experienced professional resources having a varied skill set, flexibility and time-to-market advantages allowing them to enjoy the long term gains of offshore outsourcing. In other words, our offshore development center operates as an extension to clients' existing software engineering business. We strictly adhere to clients' business critical objectives while mutually considering the ideas, design validations, development processes, test plans and schedules for implementing the project under consideration.
Onsite Development Center (ODC) Model
Along with the Offshore Development Center Model, Zestard offers its clients the flexibility of assigning dedicated personnel to the client location, if required and proposed. On proposal and equally affordable terms, concerned personnel can be transferred to the client site for a specified project's duration.
Intellectual Property Licensing
At Zestard, Intellectual Property is viewed as a profit center, which involves legal, technical as well as business considerations. Working as the clients' software developer and supplier, Zestard does not own the intellectual property of the work done for its clients. The client owns the intellectual property, until and unless specified and agreed mutually. However, Zestard also develops software products and components completely on its own cost, which are clearly identifiable in a project assigned to and developed by Zestard. Zestard can provide these products and components at incremental costs to its clients, when required and proposed by the client.
