Responsiv Consulting deliver high quality IT Solutions to a budget
Responsiv Consulting deliver business outcomes under fixed price (outcome based) agreements as well as providing skilled consultants to add capacity or fill gaps in experience and skills to your own projects.
For when you want someone else to take the delivery risk
Responsiv employ great people and have absolute confidence in our ability to deliver complex and simple projects to time, quality, and budget. We stand behind that belief with Outcome based contracts that mean we are paid for delivery rather than time, and that we take your delivery risk.
Outcome based agreements can be offered when we can define the project scope, control the dependencies, and have clearly defined acceptance criteria. We add a small margin to accommodate our delivery risk, however the contracts are transparent, with payments based on defined milestones, each with its own completion criteria.
Outcome agreements are beneficial to our customers when project delivery requires a broad range of different skills, and when there is a benefit to allowing Responsiv to project manage and deliver different parts of the project in our own time. If we develop your solution in our offices we will deliver the completed solution and provide handover workshops to the level of detail you require; from a simple “this is how it works” to a detailed code review.
- Detailed handover and ongoing support
- Responsiv can provide development environments and an area for the project team
- Use of Responsiv assets to accelerate delivery and manage risk
All Outcome delivered solutions can be provided with “Responsiv Assist Hyper-care”. With Responsiv Assist Hyper-care we provide a structured ticket-based active support for an agreed period to help you through solution adoption and rollout. This means that we continue to support you after the main delivery is complete at a fraction of the cost of maintaining the project team.
- Supported outcomes with intensive remote support for release and adoption
- Managed service, including maintenance and administration available
- Secure, UK based hosting services
All Outcome delivered solutions can be supported on an on-going basis using Responsiv Assist Flex Support.
Responsiv Consulting has successfully delivered many fixed price projects ranging from a few man-weeks to several man-years of effort. We work to proven and established good delivery practice, and leverage existing software, method, and documentation assets to facilitate on-time delivery, and to help us manage delivery risk.
Solution as a Service
For when the cost of buying the underlying software does not justify the business value.
Responsiv Consulting can deliver “Solution as a Service” solutions to your business. This means that we conceive, build, host, and operate the solution to the agreed specification for a minimum period. With both Assistance and Outcome agreements you are purchasing pure consulting and must purchase the foundational software and other materials separately.
Solution as a Service allows us to specify exactly the need you have. We provide the underlying software, hosting, and configuration, as well as administration and incident response – all for an agreed onboarding price and annual price for a minimum duration.
These agreements are great value when the cost of buying the underlying software does not justify the business value. For example, you need to connect two systems but the underlying software is priced to connect an enterprise.
Responsiv will provide a price for the onboarding, which includes deploying the solution and establishing connection to your enterprise. We then provide the annual fee for an agreed term. This allows us to optimise the cost to when you expect to see value from the solution, and to focus cost on the parts of the solution that deliver value.
For when you want to be flexible about scope and are confortable with delivery risk
Assistance agreements are offered when you have an existing project that needs additional skilled resources, or to plug gaps in experience, product, or subject matter expertise. We also use Assistance agreements when Responsiv cannot control dependencies, or when the scope and success criteria are not known or subject to change.
Assistance agreements are highly beneficial when you require Responsiv to provide mentoring and are more cost-effective than Outcome agreements when delivery-risks cannot be controlled by Responsiv. We provide assistance delivery estimates using our best judgement, and work with you to plan and document the work expected to be completed in the time available.
When we agree an assistance contract we commit to provide suitably experienced and knowledgable consultants for a specified amount of time. The agreements can have a scope and estimated deliverables, however there are no official deliverables because the agreement is entirely measured on time.
All Assistance delivered solutions can be provided with “Responsiv Assist Hyper-care”. With Responsiv Assist Hyper-care we provide a structured ticket-based active support for an agreed period to help you through solution adoption and rollout. This means that we continue to support you after the main delivery is complete at a fraction of the cost of maintaining the project team.

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”.
