PDA Media offers different pricing models to meet our clients' diverse needs.
Fixed Time/ Fixed Price
PDA Media offers customers a fixed time / fixed price model when the scope and specifications of the project are reasonably clear. Under this low-risk model we work with clients to define expected deliverables and timelines to determine a mutually agreed fixed price. Our refined process guarantees reliability, predictability and optimized performance of the projects and assures on-time and on-budget outcomes.
Dedicated Development Team
Dedicated team operates as an extension of the customer's development center. In this model,PDA Media forms project teams with the required team members, project managers, equipment and infrastructure based on client requirements. For such dedicated relationships, we may offer to implement customer specific quality/process frameworks trained for the specific needs of a Client.
Time and Material
Through the Time & Material Business Model PDA Media gives customers greater flexibility to alter the project specification on an ongoing basis based on upcoming market trends. This model best suits complex projects inclined to specification and design changes. The client pays an hourly rate which is agreed at the time of contract signing. The client may revise the team size optimizing the cost and duration of the project.
This option can be applied to large long-lasting projects with measurable phases. Payment schedules are defined on time (ex. monthly) or milestone basis. This model reinforces progress monitoring and reduces large projects risks.
We also understand that customers are increasingly demanding the flexibility we can customize a model to address your specific needs. Call Us at 215.645.2PDA
The PDA Media Experience
Our prime goal is to keep your project moving ahead smoothly, and cost-effectively; to ensure you experience our passion for your success.
Laying The Foundation
The first thing we do after being assigned a project is schedule information-gathering meetings between our
producers and your key staff. We are interested not only in scheduling, budget and job specifications, but
also your business’ operations, lifecycle, workflow, your preferences, target audience, and objectives. And,
of course, we will want to know all the intended user features and benefits of the product.
Developing The Right Ideas
Despite popular misconceptions, award winning creative work rarely comes in a flash of inspiration; at PDAmedia it comes from strong communication and collaboration with our client partners and production team. This is why we also need to take the time to consider several approaches (concepts), work them through (storyboard), and try them out (prototype). Then revise them as we ready them for implementation. In addition, there are usually some practical and functional ends we need to tie up before submitting our ideas—producer availability, hardware/ software/ assets estimates, scheduling requirements, etc.
All this, plus the need to schedule our workflow in a businesslike fashion, means that we normally ask for up to three weeks, depending on the job’s complexity, before we submit our rough approaches (concepts) for your review. Of course, if you have a rush project or deadline pressure we will adjust our workflow and timing accordingly.
It is our experience that it is best if we first present our rough concepts to your project manager and just one or two others. This ensures that we all stay focused on the challenges at hand and are not distracted by conflicting personal opinions. Our rough concepts consist of (conceptual art, mockups and storyboards, occasionally converted to interactive prototypes). They are adequate to convey what we believe is the best approach to take, taking
into consideration your budget, schedule, objectives, and preferences. On the other hand, they are not so well-developed as to have wasted time and effort if we need a course correction.
After presenting, we’ll ask for comments. The more objective and specific you can be, the better we will be able to respond. Your input is our guide for revising the rough concepts into a finished production model. Revision normally takes us about a week, and we schedule a second presentation shortly thereafter. From the input at this second presentation meeting further minor refinements are made as necessary. We also finalize the production timetable, and the scheduling of additional services such as photography, illustration, video asset production.
Ensuring Your Satisfaction
We recommend the finished prototype be routed to the appropriate decision makers for fact and detail checking only, reserving stylistic and subjective decisions to your project manager. To avoid costly confusion, it is also important that all communication with us come from the project manager. During the course of the project, we will keep your project manager informed of our progress. Activities that will affect the schedule or budget are identified in writing. Our goal is to keep your project moving ahead smoothly, and cost-effectively; to ensure you experience our passion for your success.
