Working Process

Being a customer-oriented company, we do our best to make our processes as clear and transparent for you as possible.

Sowtatec is qualified to fully meet the requirements of most projects.

Development Process

We usually suggest splitting the development process into several iterations (stages). Our most common iterative approach includes:

  • Business modelling
  • Requirements elicitation
  • Project plan
  • Software project details specification
  • Iterative prototype creation and deliverance to customer
  • Final version delivery
  • User documentation / Product manual


Sowatec’s project management policy is aimed to provide maximum transparency. We elaborate and communicate a detailed activity plan to every person involved in the project, which will:

  • Define major and minor stages of the process
  • Show objectives and deliverables at the end of each stage
  • Reflect which processes, methods, techniques and methodologies are to be used
  • Display human resources, qualifications that are required
  • Assign roles and responsibilities for each team member

Flexible Engagement Models

Depending on project-specific characteristics, we propose 3 major engagement models:

Project Specific Characteristics Engagement Models Budgeting
  • Project specification
  • Requirements for development processes
  • Deadlines and resources are clearly defined
  • Technical documentation is already available or properly planned
Fixed Price Fixed budget and deadline. Sowatec covers all project risks.
  • Project specification either has insufficient level of detail or doesn’t exist
  • Development processes and deadlines are not yet clear
  • Documentation is unavailable or incomplete
Time & materials (project budget is measured in man hours) Project budget is formed on the basis of man hours actually worked, and can be flexibly adjusted to the changing needs for time and resources.
  • Only general idea and requirements to the project are available
  • Project specification, requirements for development processes, deadlines and resources are still to be estimated, discussed and negotiated
Dedicated team (project budget is measured in man-days) With your team of professionals, you take control of the project including milestones and budget.

Our engagement models are very flexible. As your project objectives change, you can easily switch to another model of operation or choose a hybrid model by combining features of all engagement models, which match your needs best. Contact us for more details
