Engagement Models


This model is best-suited for projects where the scope of the work is defined and agreed upon between the client and AIS. This model allows clients to pay a set price for all milestones and deliverables for the completed project. The scope, cost, deliverables, and schedule are explicitly specified, and any scope changes during execution of the project would result in a difference in price.

Time and Materials

The Time and Materials model is ideal for clients seeking a flexible and agile project. For this project situation, the needs of the client may change based on business goals, so the requirements remain flexible. The client is billed for actual hours worked and accompanied expenses for resources.
