Start with a strategy and dare to imagine how Unity can support new ways of working, improve the tried and trusted, and deliver new value from a combination of the two. Remember that the newest Mobile-App cannot exist without the infrastructure and “platform” that supports it. Enterprise connectivity and automation is no different.
How will you compete? What new products can be delivered with the new Unity technology? How quickly can you bring it to market? Can Unity save cost and improve service? Can Unity licensing options connect cost to benefit in an elastic way? Unity Solutions simplify the buying process and accelerate adoption. They combine Technology, Consulting, and Support to allow you to conceive a solution and let Responsiv do the rest.

Most businesses want to focus on what they do well, and to not be distracted by activity that is not value generating for their customers. When we build solutions on Unity Responsiv offer “Solution Assist” to bring together and support all the parts of a solution. This augments Unity as a Service or Subscription deployments to deliver support for the solution and not just some of the parts. Alternatively use “Cloud Solution Assist” to receive a fully specified hosted managed service, or do it yourself and keep Responsiv on the hook for ongoing support and maintenance with “Incident Assist” or “Build and Operate Assist”.
Delivery (fixed price) Contract
Delivery Contracts or “outcome based” contracts commit Responsiv to deliver a specific outcome to a defined quality for a defined price.
We believe that these contracts demonstrate our focus and commitment to delivery, as well as our self-confidence that we can deliver our promise.
We are happy to agree delivery contracts when we have a well defined scope and success criteria, and that we can control all the resources and decisions needed to complete our commitment.
Defined Success means that we have an objective, measurable finish line that is not open to interpretation, and that delivers something of value to you, the customer.
Defined scope means that the success criteria has a known application that is not infinite.
Control of resources and decisions means that we can plan and execute at our own discretion, and do not become derailed by delays outside our control.
For peace of mind Responsiv provide ongoing support for outcome based contracts using our Responsiv Assist Flex Support or custom support products.
Solution as a Service
Solution as a Service contracts commit Responsiv to delivering, hosting, and supporting a solution to a defined problem for a minimum period.
This offering is considered to be our flagship for consulting because it wraps all Responsiv products together.
Responsiv Consulting Assistance Contracts
Assistance Contracts commit Responsiv to delivering a suitably skilled and experienced individual(s) and charge by the hour upto a defined maximum time.
Any capacity left on the contract is not billed, however, if the project requires additional time, then the contract will require an extension.
