How does Build-Operate-Transfer work?

Build-Operate-Transfer is a partnership model that allows you to quickly extend your operational capabilities by accessing an outsourced team of experts.

With support from your nearshore/offshore business partner, you set up a development centre abroad, hire new people locally and then include them back into your company.

If you need to explore this topic more, read what the Build-Operate-Transfer model is and how it works in detail.

BOT phases

buid phase in bot model

The Build stage of the Build-Operate-Transfer engagement model is about creating an offshore team and equipping it with everything it needs to succeed. This includes tangible (digital devices, office space) and intangible (knowledge transfer) assets. Both are managed by Spyrosoft.

This stage is crucial for the collaboration to be completed effectively and within an agreed timeframe. It usually lasts 1-3 months, although if the potential team members are ready to be onboarded, as is the case at Spyrosoft, it can be shortened to 1-2 weeks.

What’s important, the Build stage can be offered independently, contrary to the other two phases of the model.

Cost savings
Shorter time-to-market
We really feel that we’re getting a great service for what we were paying. The whole thing is transparent at all times and the responsibilities were set as clearly as possible, with, for example, the recruitment process covered by Spyrosoft in its entirety.

This stage includes expanding the team if and when necessary, as well as process implementation to ensure the technical abilities of the team and the project’s business maturity. Towards the end of this phase, the transfer of the lead programmers and team leaders into the partner’s company may also be scheduled.

The goal here is to achieve a stable and fully operational development process. This will be crucial down the line when you move to the Transfer stage and will make this stage smoother.

Here’s more information about the Operate stage of the BOT model.

Ability to rapidly scale
Our team in Wroclaw is an extension of the team based in another location, we do not replace anyone in terms of competences or team functions. We are a part of different teams working on various projects. This means also that we have contact with the end customers.

The Transfer stage is the closing stage of the Build-Operate-Transfer model, where, after a thorough review, the teams working on your project are now included in your company.

Your vendor’s employees are now employed by you. If everything goes well in the two earlier stages, this stage should be straightforward.

Effortless onboarding
Lower talent retention
As for the Transfer stage, we were simply ready to scale at one point into the collaboration. We wanted to show our customers how quickly we can get new teams onboarded. In Germany – with its limited pool of developers – it would never be possible to set up a team in 1 – 2 months.

Clear cost breakdown

Ensure cost awareness with BOT open book

We value clarity and a good relationship with our clients. Thats why, as part of the BOT model, we also offer an open book that presents all relevant costs associated with the endeavour, in detail. Insight into costs such as administration, benefits, IT, recruitment, and management fees will allow you to evaluate your total daily, monthly and yearly expenses more effectively, making it easier for you to prepare for the Transfer stage.

Key benefits:  

  • Full transparency – You have insight into all the financial components of your project. 
  • Predictability – You know from the start what costs associated with the transfer of an employee you can expect in the future.  
  • Cost structure awareness – You get the full picture of all kinds of costs in a project for a given market, which can help you plan a long-term strategy. 
  • Market understanding – You get the chance to gain more knowledge about the market in which your team will operate.

Frequently asked questions

In the traditional outsourcing model, once your partnership ends, there isn’t a way to access the resources you’ve used in the past, including the expertise you’ve gathered and the people who have worked on your team. It isn’t the case with the Build-Operate-Transfer engagement type, where you keep the knowledge team even after you and your business partner are no longer working together, and the team is transferred into your company.

Yes, we do. Spyrosoft is an agile company, and we were founded on the principles of agile. With Spyrosoft, you can be sure that the processes we use together will closely integrate with those used at your organisation. We have daily scrum standups, retrospectives and iterative ways of developing our clients’ products and services. This is ingrained in all that we do.

Given our agile basis of collaboration, we can follow all our clients’ procedures and standards. The Build-Operate-Transfer partnership ensures that your dedicated teams will work the same way as your in-house employees do. The first stage of the collaboration (Build) involves understanding your product roadmap and goals; building and aligning them to your company culture; assigning resources, providing training where required, and making sure all the elements are embedded into your newly formed group of Spyrosoft experts.

This will depend on the specific requirements of your project, the desired timelines and the size of the team(s) that will provide services. However, on average, we are confident we can start working with our customers within 2-4 weeks of initial contact. For further details, please do not hesitate to contact us.
