Legislate's consultancy agreement is a useful tool for software developers, software vendors and any other related parties to quickly develop a project on a consultancy basis for a client.
A consultancy agreement allows a client to contract a consultant for services or a deliverable which will be defined in the statement of work. A consultant is not an employee of the client.
A part-time consultant will work a couple of hours a day or a couple of days per month to deliver the services to the client.
Software development skills are hard to come by and in certain cases it can be more cost-effective for an organisation to hire software development consultants to build the first version of their software.
The software developped by the consultant will usually be owned by the client and the consultant will have to keep the terms of the project and the specifics of the software solution confindential.
A consultancy agreement for a software development project allows a client to quickly prototype and develop software solutions instead of building the software themselves.
