Software Development :


Every day we do the work that most people don't believe can be outsourced


First Idea LLCs is a custom software development company, the only software outsourcing firm with math, technology & subject matter expertise combined.


We offer a fixed-scope fixed-price project, a monthly retainer or flexible time & materials option, as well as any combination of the three. Regardless, the basic principle of accountability is the same: we firmly believe that a vendor should deliver quality on time and pay the price if they don't, whether they are paid by the hour or based on milestones.


We are Focused : Fast | Independent | BS-free | Transparent & Stable


software development Company


We support a wide range of process and commercial engagement models to ensure that project flow fits our client’s operational and financial objectives:


Fixed Price Fixed Scope:


  • A classic delivery model which guarantees delivery of a pre-defined set of functionality in a specific time frame
  • Requires significant effort upfront for requirement definition and a rigid change management protocol
  • Can be done in Agile model (contrary to popular vision)
  • Less suitable for projects where requirements are likely to change

Dedicated team:


  • A team of engineers is assigned to work exclusively on a series of client's projects
  • Management and reporting duties are shared between client and SM Web Solutions Team
  • Ideal for Agile model
  • Allows for easy integration between First Idea LLCs's and client's in-house development team and infrastructure
  • Allows for a full scope control by the client and provides flexibility to change course as needed

Hybrid:


  • A dedicated core team focuses on the on-going development and maintenance tasks; demand spikes (one-off projects) use additional staff on either Fixed Price or T&M basis

Time and Budget Cap:


  • The engagement is split into fixed-time phases (e.g. three-month long) with a fixed not-to-be-exceeded budget; the team works off the task backlog in an Agile manner
  • This option limits the client’s exposure for each phase and provides a natural accountability mechanism – the vendor only gets next phase's budget allocation if the client is satisfied with current deliverables
