Engagement Model

Sagitaur Ventures provides the following models for flexible engagements with clients. These models are designed to address diverse requirements and build close relationships with clients, from project based engagements to outsourced development and support. These models are proven to improve operational efficiencies and reduce costs through mature systems and processes built over a decade of serving customers.

Fixed Price

Deliverables, Costs and Timelines are clearly defined in the Fixed Time/Fixed Price model. The project is agreed to be executed within a fixed time at a fixed pre-negotiated price. This model is ideal for a Project which has elaborate and sufficient details for each stages of execution and has unambiguous documented specifications. These projects typically leave little scope for changes and additions during the project execution. This model can easily be adapted for well understood solutions with relatively low to medium levels of complexity.

Time & Material

This Business Model is based on resource utilization during the project time span. When scope, specification and implementation plans of a project are not easy to define at the outset, Time & Material Model becomes an attractive option. Large scale and complex projects are best executed using this approach. The effort estimation for all the elements for all stages at the beginning of the project is usually complex. The implementation of each element is embarked upon with a provision for change management and assumption updates. The Client & Sagitaur Ventures prioritize and define scope for each element.

Offshore Dedicated Centre

In this model the entire business process is moved offshore in order to leverage the expertise and cost benefits offered by the outsourcing partner. Working under this model, dedicated resources are exclusively provided to the customer for a predefined time frame whereby the client will have total access, control and transparency over the team to fulfil their needs. The team will follow client's practices and methodologies and work closely with them. It's fairly because of having substantial cost savings, smooth project execution and business risk elimination. This model fits very well for routine, non-core business process. The client takes complete responsibility for carrying out the business process. The vendor does not directly manage the process but ensures quality measurements on process outcome and provides the facility with people.

Co-Managed

This model works in the same way as Traditional Outsourcing with few changes in the working pattern. The Subject Matter Expert (SME) from the client is located at the offshore centre. This model provides extra confidence to the client as their SME sits and drives the project while the vendor facilitates the successful execution of the project.

Joint Venture

The Joint Venture Model brings the client and the vendor in equal terms as they invest in the infrastructure and in people. The vendor brings the local expertise and service skills while the client brings their knowledge of the existing business function while maintaining greater management control.

Build, Own, Transfer

"Build Operate Transfer" or "BOT" arrangements help clients retain the option of transferring ownership of the operations after a mutually agreed upon time frame. Sagitaur Ventures helps the client set up the back office operations from start to finish. This covers establishment of the operation, acquisition of facilities and staff and extends to actually running the centre for a defined period. Once the centre and services are well established, management and ownership can be transferred to the client.

Captive Centre

In this model the client owns a part of the infrastructure with people and process to perform a certain amount of work. This capacity is kept in place, regardless of the workload. When the option is employed, the captive centre does not have to adjust staffing to meet workload demands - thus avoiding the expenses associated with constant staffing readjustments.

Transaction

This model could be simply based on "fee per transaction," a model whereby the fee is charged based on the number of transactions it processes. There is no sharing of the costs, benefits, or risks involved in processing the transactions. Transaction based cost is defined based on project requirement and industry standard mutually agreed upon productivity.
