Solution introduction

Opus Una offers a full service, low cost digital platform software engineering capability

We partner with great software development partners around the globe for high quality, end-to-end software project execution at attractive prices

Huge opportunities exist for small or scaling companies to take advantage of new and highly skilled software engineering resource pools in low-cost locations.

However, major barriers and logistical challenges exist for companies without dedicated technology management teams or those which lack experience or the necessary bandwidth to source and manage remote developers. Headline savings in resourcing hourly rates are often lost, and sometimes several times outweighed, by costs of inefficient execution, poor quality of deployed software or misunderstood business objectives.

With clear prioritisation and design principles, selection of the right delivery team and a strong day to day management framework, software projects can be achieved fast, at reasonable rates and with a vastly reduced third party execution risk.
This combination can be a game-changer for new digital businesses and an opportunity to achieve traction, validate business propositions and ultimately secure funding.
The Opus Una Engineering team offers our clients:

  • Digital proposition formation and roadmap determination services, working closely with our experienced team

  • Rapid mobilisation of a bespoke software delivery team, selected and tailored for each client from our high quality and pre-vetted partner network

  • Optimised pricing and pre-negotiated contract terms, enabling rapid engagement and project initiation

  • Fully managed project execution using best-practice software creation methodologies and tools

  • Flexible planning and reporting solutions, configured to each client’s needs –transparency of status, issues and spend, without a high management overhead

  • Transition to Operate - tailored platform service agreement options and guidance, as digital propositions are deployed and become ‘Business as Usual’.

Our delivery experience aligned to flexible high-quality software development enables our clients to bring digital propositions to market quickly and confidently. Medium term evolution of an in-house technology capability can be realised through collaboration with the Opus Una Resourcing team.
