Whether you are a global enterprise, a technology start-up, an investor or IT reseller, we have a partnership option and commercial model that’s right for you.
Results-based partnership approach
The traditional outsourcing business model is based on a day rate; yet this places all of the risk on the customer, who has no guarantee of a successful outcome. We think you deserve an outsourced software partner who is willing to be invested in your success.
We don’t work or think like ‘work for hire’ software developers. Rather than charging on a day rate basis, or for the amount of code we develop, our commercial model is based on the successful delivery of your system.
Our contract reads more like a partnership agreement with a focus on the project outcome. It keeps us focused and motivated by the same things as you – faster project delivery and realisable commercial value.
We will only agree the cost of the project once we’ve captured all of your business requirements in a comprehensive UAT document. In this way we are incentivised to agree a fixed budget and to deliver the project on time, minimising the risk of costly delays.
We will ensure the project stays on track with weekly calls to track progress. By reducing the volume of source code by up to 40% we speed up every element of the development process. And should you want to make changes to the UAT, we can deliver these on the fly and still go live on time!
However large your project, we typically deliver within weeks or months rather than years, with full payment on completion and no extra costs incurred.
Working with SCAD Software removes the angst of being locked into a single provider. We offer a guaranteed optional exit strategy, should you want to change direction.
Shaun is an accomplished commercial leader with extensive experience in the IT and Telecoms industry. Much of his early career was spent with Microsoft, where he progressed from launching Excel into the UK market to the UK Executive Board, responsible for Marketing. He then went onto Orange where he ended up running the business unit responsible for selling to Small, Medium businesses.
Since then he has worked with a number of smaller technology businesses in both Commercial and Advisory roles. His strong commercial focus has led him to consistently contribute to the growth of every organisation that has engaged him. Shaun is heading up the Commercial side of SCAD Software.
He is spearheading the company’s expansion in the UK, Europe and the USA as well as the launch of SCAD Solutions, a business focused on launching innovative solutions to the international market. Shaun’s strong sense of ethics is perfectly aligned with Andy’s vision for SCAD Software.
After working as a software consultant to the global banking industry for six years, Andy has devoted the last two decades to realising his vision to transform the software development industry.
Since 1998, when he founded SCAD Software, Andy was aware that the business world was accumulating a vast and unsustainable level of technical debt, with legacy source code becoming a risk factor for organisations of all size. As markets change and digital transformation becomes integral to every business, Andy realised that out-of-date software would put the future of many organisations in jeopardy.
To address this risk, Andy developed a radical new approach to custom software development, which time and time again has delivered large-scale software projects 75% faster than other methods.
Andy is now overseeing the expansion of SCAD Software into new markets in Asia, Middle East, UK, Europe and North America as well as extending the portfolio to include a number of packaged solutions.
