ShuraCore became a member of the EtherCAT Technology Group. Increasing our expertise in industrial networks is our key strategic objective. EtherCAT is an industrial networking standard based on Ethernet. EtherCAT differs from other industrial networks, including those based on Ethernet, primarily in its excellent performance. EtherCAT can be implemented cost-effectively with its flexible topology, simple
OPC UA is a modern industry standard for data transmission in industrial networks. OPC UA provides secure and reliable communication between devices while being a cross-platform standard, allowing data exchange between devices with different operating systems (Linux, Windows, RTOS, etc.). OPC UA is a specification that defines the transmission of data in industrial networks and
How We Work
We are interested in choosing a profitable model of cooperation with clients in the field of pricing. Given the variety of projects, we offer several options for price agreements:
The fixed price model implies assessing a specific project and the amount of work that needs to be done based on its requirements. Depending on the work scope, ShuraCore calculates the number of software development hours required to complete all tasks. A project cost estimate is calculated before the start of the development and has strict deadlines. After the project estimate, we set the project cost. This price is fixed and can be paid in stages or a lump sum.
The Dedicated Team model is used for long-term projects where requirements are unclear and change as the scope of work changes. This model is also used when the client’s team does not have the skills or experience in certain areas. ShuraCore team can be connected to the client’s team to deliver high quality, unique, and specific projects without expanding the client’s core team. Dedicated Teams Pricing Model is monthly payments based on team size that includes fixed maintenance costs.
Time and material contracts have a more flexible schedule and budget than fixed-price contracts. The time and material pricing formula assume established fees for development time. The customer pays for the actual hours spent on development and the amount of work performed. Together with the customer, we negotiate the rate per hour of work. Payments are usually interval payments: weekly, monthly, etc. This model is flexible, and changes are welcome, but it is not fixed in time and budget. The customer has full access to the team at all stages of project development.
The Milestone contract includes recurring payments for completed milestones. The customer and ShuraCore development team set the criteria together. Typically, the customer pays a fixed price when the required tasks are completed. Payment is determined by the time spent on development and the amount of work. The customer pays for the actual work performed. ShuraCore provides this type of contract only to regular customers with whom an excellent trusting relationship has been established.
For this type of contract, three points of the project triangle are fixed: timing, money, and the system’s internal quality. Payment occurs at the end of the project with a possible prepayment at the beginning. The contract describes the tasks but at a high enough level that you can flexibly change the work amount without making changes to the agreement. The risks are divided equally: ShuraCore undertakes to deliver the software on time and budget. The customer tries to select/cut tasks based on business priorities and the current situation. ShuraCore ensures quality through well-structured processes, rules for code creation, the presence of automated code analysis systems, a notification system for developers, as well as deep integration of all internal services in our company.
Our services are distinguished because we are doing everything possible to ensure product quality and provide our customers with only the best solutions. Working with us, you will not worry about the confidentiality of your idea. We will sign an NDA to protect the concept of your project. Our team of experts will provide you with marketing and pricing plans that fit your budget. Our specialists will develop a technical specification for your business task or make an input analysis.
We develop software taking into account the formation of scalable software architecture. Each developed software has a UML model, which gives a detailed understanding of the final solution at the initial stage of the start of work. Next, we will form a work schedule to follow the plan for creating software. ShuraCore uses flexible and well-thought-out development processes, which allows us to do everything on time and efficiently. We achieve accuracy in our work due to: built-up communication processes with clients, measuring the KPI of our specialists, reporting on the status of our work, following the schedule, creating software according to our regulations, an entire cycle of software testing, and using CI/CD in the creation of our specialists.
