Leverage our Expertise
Ascenten offers progressive outsourcing engagement models the customers that go beyond tactical outsourcing. By offering various engagement models and setting up the desired offshore product development center for companies that lack a product engineering team or need to support a single product or an entire product line, we empower our customers with full lifecycle R&D and support services, as well as proven processes and dedicated engineering teams. These models offer the opportunity to accelerate outsourcing through our collaborative value chain
In the initial discussions with the prospective customer, Ascenten understands and evaluates the project requirements, as well as the volatility of the customer's business needs. Based on this, we recommend an appropriate engagement model to start with. The rationale behind this is to assess technology risks, business risks and manpower risks and mitigate the same by an appropriate deployment of resources.
Ascenten has evolved engagement models to suit an intermediated business model, with a clear value proposition for an onsite business partner and an offshore team. Our projects comply with clearly defined delivery metrics and Service Framework Agreements (SFAs). Certified professionals provide project management expertise, integrated project plans and change management. We ensure that our customers have full visibility into the projects and project teams through multiple touch points.
R&D Partnership Program
An R&D Partnership Program, which is an extension of the customer's engineering facility, is popular among customers, who are looking at long-term gains from offshore outsourcing. This model enables customers to rapidly extend product development and product support resources to a global level while building product engineering teams that specialize in specific markets and technologies. This model ensures that the extended team works as an extension of the customer's team and provides resource flexibility, extensive scalability, cost and time efficiencies, cross trained resources and the ability to adjust to peak loads.
This model incorporates a pool of specialized, multi-disciplinary resources that are organized and managed by Ascenten to meet the customer's explicit business objectives. The team is trained for a particular customer while working from Ascenten's development center; and goes extra lengths to simulate processes to exacting standards as per the customer's requirements. Other advantages of this model include knowledge retention and the flexibility of utilizing the team for different requirements. The R&D Partnership model is usually applied in long-term partnerships with a significant amount of multiple and unforeseeable types of work.
Ascenten has perfected the art of setting-up and running R&D Partnerships. Our unique approach speeds the design and set up of the lab, shortening the critical time-to-value curve.
When scope, specification and implementation plans of a development project are reasonably well defined at the outset, an Engineering Projects model becomes an attractive option.
Through this engagement model, customers can integrate talented global engineers into discrete projects that are "time-boxed" and require specific market or technology expertise.
Under this model, Ascenten assigns a project team including project management, equipment and infrastructure necessary to deliver on time.
In many cases, project requirements tend to evolve during the course of implementation thereby necessitating additional or lesser resources. To facilitate such development, this model gives the flexibility of adjusting the customer's project team size, while optimizing on time and costs.
Ascenten is equipped with the organizational infrastructure for executing engagements at the highest levels of delivery standards.
- Gain an extended development team that generate repeatable product innovation and address their inherent business needs.
- Obtain a Global Engagement Model perfected for projects of all sizes.
- Reduce overall development expenses by optimizing key resource, project, and best location parameters.
- Scale development efforts through the flexibility incorporated in our engagement models to every customer based on their specific needs.
- Speed the time-to-market of their products.
