The Build-Operate-Transfer model is gaining tremendous popularity of late in the offshore business services industry. It helps clients to keep the project in an incubation state until it reaches a final conclusion in order to be handed over as a finished work. In the field of IT, this model is usually used to create a team or part of a team of an individual project or branch of a company. The Software BOT model is more about business arrangement and agreement related to a software development company building the software (project), operating it and eventually transferring it to the client as per the stipulated time finalized at the initiation stage. The BOT model is popularly used in IT firms where off-shoring a project can save a considerable amount of money for the company.

This is the final phase of a BOT model where the ownership of the project is transferred to the client who commissioned the project. The project can be transferred to the client once it has fully commenced or the stipulated time frame is over. Ownership of the project can also be transferred when the client is ready to overtake the full control of the project. The transfer usually includes transfer of all the vital information, assets, legal and operation information. Some crucial testing (manual and automated) of the software made is also carried out before the transfer process so that the client doesn’t face any issues later on.

Off-shoring such a project can drastically reduce the setup and turn-around time.
