X2i’s fixed price model offers a low-risk option and can be employed when the scope and specifications of the project are well defined. This model guarantees on-time, on-budget delivery of projects. Deliverables, costs and timelines are clearly defined in the fixed cost model. In fixed time, fixed-price engagements.
X2i follows a phased approach that includes requirement understanding, development, implementation and after delivery support. Through this model we can offer customers a tremendous advantage on the cost front.
This model works best for - customers with well-defined requirements and project schedules. Under this option, the customer pays a fixed price for the complete project, which in turn is coupled to well-defined deliverables. For any change in scope the customer has to pay a fixed hourly rate which was agreed at the initial stage of start of project. For any changes in the scope there is a standard change request procedure that is followed.
Time & Material Model becomes a good option when scope, specification and implementation plans of a software development project are not feasible to define. Under this model, customers pay for the hourly development efforts put in by the developer.

Couple of times once the scope is frozen the time and material project also gets converted to the fixed price model. We have strict project management and reporting practices for T&M model wherein the timesheet is sent to the customer for approval for the number of hours the developer has put for the project.
