Types of Contracts

IT Universum will analyze your business needs, industry and product requirements to deliver a personalized, cost-competitive, scalable and robust solution.

To achieve better results we use the following contract types:

Time and Material

This contract type is used if the exact project volume cannot be defined before development begins or if there is risk of project requirements changing during the development process. Projects development can begin quickly because our expert team can consider changes and supplements as they work on the project.

Fixed Price

This contract type is the best choice for short-term projects and those that have detailed software requirement specifications. It is the most effective contract type when project volume and final cost can be defined at project start.

Dedicated Team

Under this contract type, we provide a project development team who reports directly to the customer’s project manager. The customer pays for the team’s services and necessary equipment using agreed rates.

Build, Operate & Transfer (BOT)

Build, Operate & Transfer (BOT) is an option we offer for those who need long-term IT teams. Our aim is to produce quality software products and extended consulting services.

Quality Assurance and Control

Depending on your requirements, our quality assurance engineers carry out technical investigations to ensure that the software meets the requirements in terms of correctness, efficiency, security, completeness, etc. Our quality assurance specialists use different software and systems for automated and manual testing. We make our work transparent by using Redmine, JIRA, and other tools for test case management.

All IT Universum products undergo the following rigorous testing:

  • Functionality and regression analysis.
  • User interface testing (GUI) and usability testing.
  • Cross-browser and cross-platform testing.
  • Stress performance testing for projects assigned for mass use.
  • Specific testing, depending on the purpose of the released product.

Quality assurance specialists define the most important testing types for each product and offer optimal test combinations. Our years of expertise allow our quality assurance specialists to bring you functional, bug-free, and stable software and web applications.

Our experts will create for you a customized testing plan that consists of:

At IT Universum we will ensure:

  • Your website functions properly under normal and heavy traffic.
  • Server response time is reasonable.
  • No bottlenecks are present in the system.
  • Server stability is a priority.
  • Website performance at peak times is acceptable.

At IT Universum, we prioritize security testing to ensure an application is fully protected.

Our experts will help you detect potential security issues, as well as existing threats, providing:

  • Comprehensive analysis of web application security.
  • Security testing and potential problems detection.
  • Independent security estimate of a web application.

Regression testing is designed to ensure the application is fully functional after a certain issue has been fixed in the code. This kind of testing is vital to software stability, as fixing one feature may result in unintended damage to another, seemingly unlinked one. According to various estimates, this risk is as high as 50-80%.

Functional testing is one of the most important tasks during software development, as it detects serious problems that may ruin end-user experience. Functional testing simulates actions and general behavior of a real user (e.g. clicking links, filling in web forms, interacting with the interface and the content of the website, searching for information, etc.).

With effective usability testing, your resource becomes more user-friendly and popular. Our experts can help you achieve intuitive navigation, rapid page loading, and a shorter server response time.

Different browsers, operating systems, and hardware can affect how a web application functions. Compatibility testing minimizes the cost of technical support and increases customer satisfaction.

IT Universum will help you minimize negative user feedback and guarantee a stable and compatible end product.

IT Universum provides unbiased and reliable software testing that will ensure the product is 100% ready.

Our goal is to make your website performance outstanding. Choosing IT Universum means you are choosing security, durability, and quality for your business.

Regression testing is often automated for large projects to reduce the time spent manually testing the same functionality over and over again. From code testing to functional testing, we ensure rapid issues discovery and better level of quality assurance in general.
