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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dagmara Tluszcz: Diverse teams work better
Our team in Wroclaw is an extension of the team in other locations and operates within the rules set up by our German partner, GOD mbH.

Oluf Riddersholm: Transparency and great services
TrackMan, a software company operating in the sports industry, partnered with Spyrosoft for engineering support. They chose the BOT model to address challenges such as limited access to talent in Denmark and cost efficiency. The Build-Operate-Transfer model allowed TrackMan to avoid setting up their branch in Poland, which would have been a costly and lengthy process. The benefits included cultural alignment and a good balance between quality and costs.
Igor Krahne: We were ready to scale
Is it correct in English? Igor Krahne, CEO of GOD mbH, discusses their collaboration with Spyrosoft, citing a lack of available talent in Germany as the reason for moving their operations to Poland. Having a local team that’s not only able to complete all the tasks skillfully and on time, but can also handle operational details as well as add and onboard new members, allowed them to focus on sharing their domain knowledge and processes.
