ENGAGEMENT MODELS

Sustainable Solutions

TIME AND MATERIALS

A really flexible way to get the support and resource you need, as and when you need it. All projects take twists and turns but Aster will be there to support you every step of the way. We take pride in upfront realistic estimation of costs but the best bit is we only charge for what you use!

Programme Leadership

FIXED PRICE

If you have a well defined piece of work then consider taking advantage of engaging us on a fixed price basis. This gives you certainty on cost, timescales and deliverables. We can tailor an engagement to fit your budget too. Rest assured that a fixed price engagement will not come at the expense of flexibility.

One Size

MANAGED SERVICE

We offer a managed service to clients that need access to ongoing support, expertise and leadership, without necessarily having in house capability. You’ll get a pot of dedicated resource that can be flexed up as necessary, giving you the confidence that your procurement needs are in safe hands.

Partnerships

PARTNERSHIPS

Aster partners with other companies that offer complimentary expertise such as legal, transformation, IT strategy and software advisory services. We can take a prime or subcontractor role to ensure you receive a comprehensive service and accountability of results.
