Service Models

  • Turnkey Outsourcing – ConsulTech works interactively with you to develop a complete set of requirements and a robust system design. After you approve the specifications and the design, ConsulTech develops and tests your application off-site. You incur no overhead and no on-site disruptions. All development and testing is performed in North America, eliminating the communication and time zone problems typical of off-shore outsourcing.
  • Turnkey On-Site Development – This model is equivalent to the Turnkey Outsourcing model except that most development and testing are performed at your site. This model gives you additional control over the environment in which your application is to operate. It also allows you to modify the specifications and design rapidly during the application development and testing processes.
  • Integrated Development – ConsulTech’s engineering staff works at your site side-by-side with your staff of engineering professionals. This model gives your staff a head start with your application’s technology transfer process.
