Time & Material

What is Time & Material business model?

Time & Material cooperation model is a great opportunity to get the project in production quickly. If you don’t want to waste time on sending the project details to different contractors to get a rough quote and finalize requirements to end up with a fixed price quote, we recommend opting for a Time & Material business model.  

The customer in this model is charged according to the agreed hourly rate and the cost depends on the total amount of hours spent by the contractor on implementation of a certain task. Usually TM projects are long-term projects or projects on maintenance. 

Time & Material business model suits best for:

  • Urgent projects that require immediate start.
  • Projects with unclear or changing requirements.
  • Large projects with regularly extending project scope.
  • Legacy projects.
  • Projects on maintenance.
