Embracing Value over Billing for time: Revolutionizing the Software Industry

Providing new lenses to measure value created
Table of Contents

In the fast-paced world of software development, the traditional model of charging clients based on the time spent by engineers is becoming increasingly inadequate. This outdated approach lacks a focus on value and innovation, leaving companies with little incentive to improve their efficiency or deliver better digital platforms faster. With the AI revolution in full swing, it’s time to leave behind old habits and forge a new path for the software industry.

At Unthinkable, we believe that humor and impactful storytelling can help us break down barriers and inspire curiosity. So, let’s take a lighthearted look at this serious issue. Imagine a world where we paid chefs based on the hours spent in the kitchen, rather than the quality and taste of their dishes. We would likely be served overcooked pasta, soggy salads, and a side of disappointment. Now, picture the same scenario in the software industry: uninspired solutions and unmet expectations. It’s clear that the time-based billing model is failing us.

The challenge of measuring value in the software industry is not an easy one to tackle, as there’s no single metric that can accurately determine it. However, we at Unthinkable refuse to let this obstacle deter us. We propose charging on the basis of size, complexity, events and use cases for UI Components and APIs is a comprehensive and effective way to gauge value. By focusing on these elements we can shift the industry’s attention from time to tangible results and client satisfaction.

As part of our mission to revolutionize the industry, we’ve developed a cutting-edge product which is currently being used by Unthinkable and it’s clients that streamlines the entire development process. Our solution enables teams to collaborate more effectively, manage projects with greater efficiency, and ultimately deliver higher-quality digital platforms. By providing multiple lenses through which to measure value, our product aligns the interest of technology partner and the technology company.

We’re constantly refining our thoughts and ideas, working towards a future where software companies prioritize efficiency, innovation, and client outcomes over billable hours. We envision a world where software engineering is synonymous with cutting-edge solutions, lightning-fast delivery, and delighted customers.

Join us on this exciting journey as we reimagine the software industry, challenge traditional norms, and strive to make the unthinkable a reality. The time for change is now, and the industry’s transformation is imminent. Are you ready to be a part of the revolution?
