Can software be delivered fixed priced/fixed cost?
Fixed Price/Fixed Cost Software Projects and The Delivery Process
There are two parts to our software delivery process. The first is the software design and the second is the software development. We do offer fixed price work for the software development, but not the software design.
Our software design phase is a short phase, done on a time and materials (T&M) basis. This means that you will be charged for a number of hours we spend on creating your design.
Because it is a short phase with well-known steps, we are consistent in delivering our designs within or below our estimated range. If we need additional time, it is typical because the project direction changed or more functionality was added.
Once we have your software design approved, we will create a detailed estimate for building the application. If you are interested in a fixed cost for your project, we will add a margin to the estimate to cover the possibility of unknowns.
We will share with you the time and material estimate as well as the fixed cost estimate and let you choose which makes the most sense for you.
If you are considering a custom software application and want to learn more about the process, feel free to reach out to us.
We are happy to answer your questions and to see if we might be a good fit for your project. You can reach us by filling out the contact form on this page or by calling us at 404 601 6000.
Before you get started in developing your software app, your thoughts and ideas should be clarified and written down so they can be consistently and easily shared and understood. To help you get started on the right foot, we have created a checklist.
You can grab a copy of that checklist below and share it with your team!
