Appalachia Group engagement models are tailored to the specific requirements of each client and designed for one-time or multi-project engagement.
For more than a decade, Appalachia Group has been providing software development services to SME and enterprise clients worldwide. As a strategic partner, we add value, drive efficiency, and empower clients to achieve their strategic goals and objectives. Our software development team relies on structured management principles that are aligned with the eSourcing Capability Model for Service Providers (eSCM SSP).
Engagement models that work for any size enterprise
Our relationship managers collaborate with clients to choose the engagement model that works best.
Appalachia Group offers the following engagement models tailored to the client’s needs:
- Fixed cost and time model
- Dedicated teams model (DTM)
Fixed Cost and Time Model
The fixed cost and time model is ideal for projects that have clear requirements and specifications. Our discovery process has been designed to ensure that projects are completed with the specification, price, and timeline given.
Appalachia Group relationship managers collaborate with clients to define the expected deliverables and timelines prior to the execution of the project. The fixed cost time model typically works best for small-scale projects that have specific scope and schedule, and demands. Project development timeline and cost is agreed on prior to starting the project. At this point, Appalachia Group assembles the appropriate developers, technologies, and management resources to achieve project objectives. Any additional features or significant changes that arise during development are discussed with the project manager and quoted separately. The primary benefit to working under this model is efficiency and affordability of project development with clearly defined deliverables.
Dedicated Teams Model (DTM)
The dedicated teams model (DTM) is the best solution for organizations that want complete control over the human and technical resources associated with development. Our software developers have diverse backgrounds that make it easy for us to organize a team with the unique skill sets required for your project. This approach offers transparency, security, flexibility, and scalability and provides you with dedicated resources for your projects as long as you need them for a fixed monthly fee. The DTM is the best choice if you require highly skilled developers to meet the demands of your development project. This makes the development process more productive and easier to manage.
Your relationship manager assigns the resources required to meet the demands of your project. Each day, your relationship manager monitors activity reports and keeps you up-to-date with the dedicated team activity and project progress. Using our project management portal, clients are able to follow and manage the development process, ensure quality control standards are being upheld, and to execute changes if necessary.
Benefits of the Dedicated Teams Model

- Control of the team development and modification

Benefits of Offshore Software Development

This arrangement gives you the ability to have a more agile development team and provides you with access to a much wider range of talent than you might otherwise have in-house.
