At Applover, our approach to software development projects often involves time and material (T&M) contracts. This type of contract, contrasting with fixed-price contracts, allows for flexibility and adaptability. In a time and material contract, the contractor charges clients based on the hourly rate of labor and the cost of materials.
Understanding Time and Material contract vs. Fixed Price contract
Time and material contracts offer an alternative to fixed-price contracts. While a fixed-price contract is based on a lump sum for the entire project, a time and material contract may vary based on the actual work done. This is particularly beneficial when the scope of work is not well-defined or is expected to evolve.
The benefits of Time and Material contracts in software development
In software development, time and material contracts are often preferred due to their flexibility. As projects often evolve, the time and material model allows adjustments without the need for renegotiating the entire contract. This approach ensures that clients only pay for the time spent and materials used.
