A ‘Dedicated Team’ is an outsourcing strategy that allows an individual or organization to hire a full-fledged team of software developers for a planned software development project through an outsourced, often offshore, software development company on long term contract. A dedicated project team structure lets the client have full control over the project, while giving them the opportunity to delegate difficult tasks and responsibilities to an outsourced dedicated team who has maximum focus on the project. Dedicated team will not be switched to other contracts or handle tasks for other clients.
A dedicated team will focus fully on your project, in a way that inhouse software developers are unable to. This will ensure that your project is acted upon and completed in the most efficient manner.
Based on data collected, an outsourced dedicated team can result in a 40% - 60% average cost saving for a software development project based on reductions in hiring, administrative and overhead costs.
Hiring a Dedicated Team allows you to define your budget and have absolute control over your financials for any software development project. Any changes can be anticipated and planned for.
When you hire a dedicated team, this allows you total control over your project and task list. You will be more involved and will have the technical ownership of your project team. As the client the dedicated team will be working for, you will be able to fully or partially participate in the hiring process of the shortlisted candidates.
Working with a dedicated team improves agility unlike in a Fixed-Price project. You will be able to make necessary changes in accordance with changes in the economy, environment, and market.
Here are the best times to choose a Dedicated Team Model with Era Biz Solutions for your Project:
This is one reason to choose a dedicated team as you will need a full team to create your software product from zero to one hundred.
If your contract period is going to be large it is best that you hire a dedicated team even if you only need one developer. This will offer you the best value both financially and technically.
If you wish to have the independence to make many changes as development occurs and manage your project team in the same way that you would manage your in-house staff, then a dedicated team is the way to go.
While your company’s skills will differ, knowing what you need can definitely help things along faster. In this case, you can easily give us the requirements and we can hire your dedicated team for you.
While somewhat more expensive than our fixed-price project models, when you hire dedicated teams with Era Biz Solutions they work for you, and only you during the contract period. This improves efficiency and effectiveness.
Almost every full project is appropriate for dedicated teams. However, do not be misled. Just as every work option has pros and cons, there are some instances where our Staff Augmentation Model, Full Project Outsourcing, or Build-Operate-Transfer are more appropriate for your project. Read about them to gain an understanding. Here’s when you should definitely consider one of Era Biz Solutions’ other work models, instead of the Dedicated Teams model.
Your dedicated team structure at Era Biz Solutions will usually include a dedicated project manager, quality assurance engineer, DevOps expert, and required numbers of other experts such as PHP Developers, React.js developers, Java engineers, WordPress developers, UI/UX developers, and mobile app developers. The number of dedicated software engineers in your team will be in accordance to your initial requirements stated
However, if you have a limited FTE count (Full-Time Equivalent count) you can choose to hire only the key developers to be part of your dedicated team, and later through staff augmentation hire specific other experts such as a quality assurance engineer and DevOps expert to be part of your team at critical periods of your project.
All our projects receive their own project manager for oversight; hence you can relax on that end.
Hence, here are the ways you can hire dedicated software experts:
• Limited numbers of software developers hired on an individual basis, as per client request
• Will include a dedicated project manager for term of contract
• Performance Monitoring assistance
• A full team of dedicated software developers including auxiliary experts such as dedicated a QA engineer, and DevOps expert
• A dedicated project manager for the period of contract
• Performance Monitoring assistance
• Strategy and planning assistance for project
• Slightly reduced cost due to hiring in bulk
• A full team of dedicated IT experts according to your requirements
• A dedicated project manager / IT manager for the period of contract
• Performance Monitoring assistance
• Strategy and planning assistance for your IT tasks
• An autonomous team that works proactively
• Lower hiring costs and maintenance costs
• Increase of ROI as team becomes more familiar over time with your organization and their work roles in your team
Dedicated teams are what we specialize in and we have an easy 5-step structure made just for you.
You can either directly state the types and numbers of software development expertsyou require, alongside a simple background idea of your project so that we can ensure that your numbers match your needs. Or, if you have trouble anticipating clear numbers and types of personnel you require, you can give us a full and detailed description of your planned project. Then we will calculate the required numbers and create a proposal for you
Candidates will be shortlisted through a series of tough reviews, quizzes and interviews. This will include an English test and Subject matter quiz. You can choose to contribute for these or get involved in the interviews. However, this is not mandatory as the hiring process is part of our services to you
Final Interviews will be conducted with your involvement. We encourage you to participate as the selected candidate will be part of your final dedicated team. You would probably feel most comfortable knowing you were there to select the best of the best. Finalized team members will sign non-disclosure agreements to protect you as the client
Once the team is formed a simple and brief Induction and Training will be conducted by Era Biz Solutions to bring all members of the dedicated team to the same ground level and to build teamwork. Usually, this ranges between 1-3 days in accordance to your requirements. However, this can be conducted in a more detailed manner for 1 week with project specific refresher sessions if you so specify. Once completed the team will start the main project. This is expected to involve a brainstorming, planning and action phase possibly segregated for agile development. The dedicated team will be fully in communication with you as with any of your other regular employees
Throughout the project contract period you will have a project manager monitoring the performance and tasks of the software developers in the dedicated team. They will report to you and help you analyze the performance of the team members and the project as a whole. Continuous evaluation will also be conducted for the team members to help them improve their performance. On the instance where no improvement is shown among low performing team members, the necessary actions will be taken
