Our Engagement model

One of the primary reasons behid our success has been and continues to be our flexibility in meeting client demands. Our engagement model is custom-designed to client requirements with simultaneous focus on quality and time-to-value. USSL delivers value through the following proven delivery models.

On Site Delivery Model

Services are delivered ‘on-site’ – at the client location – by an expert USSL team. Entire project management, from the initial project study, implementation, to maintenance and support, is performed in continuous association with the client, at the client site. Our experts are familiar with the challenges of working on-site, and can provide an effective operating environment conductive to closer client interaction.

Offshore Delivery Model

Entire Project Development, from initial Study phase to Testing, is carried out at USSL’s offshore facility. Project management and communication aspects are controlled by Program Managers who are the internal client representatives. An expert team is deployed at the offshore development center to execute the project using proven process methodologies, which ensures cost-effectiveness ad on-the-time deliverables.
The project is handled by a Project Lead who communicates the time-to-value details of the team to the client. USSL also employes a Project Manager who works in direct association with the client, to supervise the project.
The client assumes responsibility for the entire project in this type of delivery model while USSL provides only the infrastructure and resources required for the project. Offshore Delivery can be adopted when project objectives are clearly defined and the possibility of deviation does not exist. It is ideal for projects that require constant enhancements.
Though Off shore Deliver model comes with a detailed project plan, we realize that there is always a possibility that unpredicted requirements might develop during the course of execution.

This Model is employed for projects that come with definite scope and requirements. USSL’s expert team performs an in-depth multi-level analysis of client requirements to eliminate possibilities of alteration to project specifications during the course of the project. We implement and manage the project using our Project Manager. This delivery model gives client better fixed cost and time advantage as well as scheduled deliverables.

Process Methodology

USSL’s process methodology is well-defined, yet flexible to meet diverse requirements of clients. It derives its strength from its structure, which is a judicious mix of standard techniques employed in process management and best approaches established through several yeards of experience in project development.

Custom Software Development Methodology

US Software Ltd follows a full Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Our SDLC process includes the following phases:
SDLC Process MAP.

Defining Project Scope

This phase involves a through study of the project to comprehend its requirements and determine the project goals. Our software development team interacts closely with the client to acquire insight into the project domain, general and specific project-related requirements of the client, current practices and client goals. The project agenda and the general schedule for product delivery are decided during this phase. The development team then formalizes the objectives of the project, and draws up complete specification report for software development, which is sent to the client for approval.

Development
Defining Functional Specifications:

Development phase sets in with the process of designing and creation of technical documentation for the project. This is a crucial phase where the software development model is shaped. The goals of the project are refined, updated and finalized for implementation. An elaborate technical analysis of the project is performed to define specifications for the software. Functional specifications for the software, from the elemental to the apex, are defined in this stage. It is in this phase where it is decided as to what features are to be included in the software and what are not to be.
A Technical Design Document (TDD) is worked out. A prototype of the proposed software is built, which enables client to review the product and permits incorporation of any required changes in the early development stage itself. The development team charts the design process, prepares project implementation plans, evaluates costs, and draws up schedules for the various deliverable.

Initial Software Development:

Based on the client-approved prototype, the actual software development is put into motion. USSL uses a combination of waterfall and spiral process methodologies to build the solution modules. Our Development model allows for parallel online product monitoring by the client as it evolves, which prevents any possible product deviations. Once modules are developed in accordance with the project plan, they are integrated and subsequently tested; a user guide for the software is created.

Testing

Our Software Development Team prepares a ‘Test Plan’ describing the various levels of testing, including unit testing, integration testing and system testing, for the software. A team of highly-experienced testers examine the real-time operation of the software. Rigorous Testing methodologies are employed to resolve and prioritize bugs, and ensure that the software is robust. The results of the Testing process are recorded, and once they are approved by our testers and the client, the software is readied for deliverance.

Product Deployment

The product is incorporated into client business. USSL team deploys the software, familiarizes client environment with the software, and acquires final approval from the client on the project.
