We offer a pragmaticapproach to the delivery of client services.Our services offer the following benefits:Concept formation with wireframes and documentation supported by final deliveryProject management using latest tool like JIRAHigh degree of communication proficiencyOffshore services delivery teamGreater savings from offshore model & cost‐arbitrage benefitsSapple has a flexible approach to delivery:Full Sapple delivery ‐ responsibility for all parts of the projectProject responsibilities shared with the customerOur Implementation teams consist of business, QA and technical leads, and a Project Managercoordinating effort across the team and working closely with the client staff assigned to the project.Every buyer has his/her unique set of expectations and requirements. We ensure that all these areintegrated into a viable delivery plan at the early stages with clearly defined roles and responsibilities ofthe various stake holders over a timeline.We envisage providing the diverse requirements of the different buyers who can choose from any oneof the generally accepted expectations or a mix of them for a given project. Typical scenarios are:
Fast turnaround ‐ The client has business interest in getting the project executed before acertain date or may be requires it in a short span of time because of his own businessrequirements. We help the client with the best case timeline possible and its implication on theresource loading on the plan for the project.Very good quality ‐ The client has a requirement to ensure minimal defects in the system. Wehelp the client with a detailed test strategy and test plan with various test management andexecution tools available with us.Low Cost Solution ‐ The client requires a cost effective solution. We engage with our client tounderstand the requirements in detail, prepare wireframes and advice whenever required tomake scope modifications for making the solutions cost effective. However low cost solutions arenot built at the cost of quality. At the same time we maintain an expectation with the client onwhat kind of products he/she can expect.Engagement ModelsFixed Time Fixed Price ‐This is one of the most common models where the client and we align our self with a predefined scope of work which is further divided into a series of traceable milestones. This ensuresthat there are no cost over runs for the buyer, at the same time provides for timely payments ona schedule. We have one of the most competitive billing rates for our buyers.Time ‘n’ MaterialThis is the other model where normally the specifications of a project are subject torevisions on a frequent basis. The buyer commits for a set of people with varying capabilities towork for the project. At a predefined time interval the total hours devoted to the project by theset of defined people are consolidated and submitted to the buyer for review and approvalfollowing which the buyer release payments. We follow industry standard time tracking tools totrack time logged by the people and also submit concise daily / weekly reports to the buyer forverification as well as for information.
Development MethodologyWe believe in delivering “custom build solutions” / “enhancement in existing framework” to clientsbusiness requirement with the best mix of development practices like agile, prototyping anditerative development that are in alignment with quality standards laid by ISO. The projects have thefollowing common stages for most solutions and products:It’s based on a stage gate approach with check points after every stage.Within each stage, we have a full set of processes available which allows our teams to benefit from ourprevious implementations and reduce project duration and workload.Stages in our development methodology:Initiation StagePlanning StageDevelopment StageTesting StageRoll ‐ Out StageClose ‐ Out StageSupport and MaintenanceWe use JIRA and its related tools for various activities required to be done in a projects life cycle(initiation to delivery phase):Agile based development of project (using Greenhopper)Content / requirement and wireframes of the project (using Confluence)Code / requirement repository management (using fisheye)Interval code / functionality reviews (using crucible)Automated build (using bamboo)CRs / Issues tracking (using JIRA)

Our SoftwareQuality Assurance Group (SQAG) will be responsible for planning and implementing the projects qualityassurance and defect prevention activities to ensure that the software process steps and standards arefollowed. The required process methodologies would be defined for each stage of the PLC.We will follow the following approach towards quality assurance and continuous quality improvementsin its association with the client:SQAG gets involved with the business analyst and works closely on prepare the RequirementDocumentThen they prepare a list of Test cases which would be reviewed to ensure coverage and qualityOnce reviewed and finalised, the test cases are executed on the developed system and the testreport would be shared with the clientAll defects raised would be redressed by the development team and followed upon for closure.Communications and Status ReportingReporting mechanisms, formats, frequency, Information flows, reviews and audit mechanisms would bedecided with client during initial stages of the project. We and Client Managers will review projectprogress and key issues weekly.
