As companies grow, the need to grow their product and invest in technology expands. At the same time, other operational priorities put pressure on cash availability. As a result, the Build, Operate, Transfer (BOT) model has gained popularity as a project financing methodology. The model works like this: a business entity (the client) hires another organization (the vendor) to finance, build, and operate a facility or business operation, often in a new territory or country, with the stipulation that the operation of the facility will ultimately be transferred to the client.
Who Needs Build Operate Transfer for IT Services?
Clients who use the BOT model for expansion of IT services typically need additional IT team members, or are startups seeking to build their technology team. These companies may not have, or want to spend, the time or resources needed to establish an office, hire a team, etc. This is especially true if the company wants to build its team in an overseas, low-cost market.
