Customer Engagement Models

Trigent will carefully assemble a dedicated team of software professionals that works closely with your in-house team. This team extends or complements your team's abilities, provides niche skills, and adds capacity. Trigent project manager will facilitate all your work and provide local oversight. Trigent has proven communication models, infrastructure, and best practices to manage seamless outsourced or offshore software development. The ODC model has been perfected over the last 18 years by Trigent and:

  • Is the most frequently used model by Trigent's clients
  • Offers highest cost advantages and ROI to clients (about 30-45% reduction in cost on average over 18 months)

Beginning with planning through delivery and support, we ensure that all stages of project development happen on Trigent's premises. Clients have a clear visibility into the project progress and milestone-reporting and delivery happens based on the arrangement.

Offshore Development Center (ODC)

In-house flexibility, offshore advantages

This model gives you the same flexibility, control and continuity as your own in-house development operation, but with the cost, quality and schedule advantage of an offshore software provider.

We provide you dedicated resources that work as extensions of your teams. From developers to virtual assistants, we identify the best people in the market and hire them to be part of your team. Trigent’s strong recruitment engine and brand gives you Just-In-Time-Hiring, with fast scaling of your team. We provide management oversight by seasoned professionals and unparalleled support for hiring, HR, payroll and infrastructure.

Business Model

This model is best suited for projects where the scope, specifications, deliverables, and implementation plans are not entirely defined when beginning the engagement or are expected to evolve throughout the engagement. This model provides clients with the desired flexibility to manage team sizes and costs as the project progresses in phases. In using this model, you can:

  • Ramp up and ramp down team size in synchronization with the market, project, and release schedules
  • Adapt to evolving requirements
  • Get detailed visibility and control over the development process

This model is suited for projects where the scope, requirements, and deliverables are clearly defined before initiating the project. In using this model, you will:

  • Limit scope variance, control costs, and operate within a specified budget
  • Get clear visibility on timelines and milestones
  • Reduce your risk and have Trigent responsible for the project deliverable
  • Expect on time on budget deliveries provided there are no changes to the scope

Development Model

Trigent uses Agile as its primary development methodology.


Trigent follows Scrum methodology for many of its clients. A pictorial representation of our Scrum process is shown below. Trigent project managers often play the role of the scrum master. Our sprints are usually 2 to 4 weeks long. We may often start with longer sprints and once a cadence is established, perform 2-week sprints. Trigent may also perform Sprint-zero to address architectural plumbing, design, infrastructure setup, etc.

Benefits of Agile/Scrum
  • Increased ability to manage changing priorities
  • Better visibility into projects
  • More alignment between business and IT
  • Faster time to market
