BOT is for all those International companies that want to optimize cost but don’t want to impede growth and lose time in market penetrations. Moreover, it is for the companies that cannot find enough talent locally and this affects their overall business targets.

The model is mainly used for software engineering purposes but it can be used for almost any domain. With nowadays shortages almost everywhere when it comes to IT talent, companies are facing high costs to hire a development team and even inability to operate successfully. This is mostly in the big tech hubs like London, Dublin, Berlin, Zurich, Amsterdam, New York & Silicon Valley.

This model would be perfectly suitable because you can hire a team with Mercatus – who has a great know-how about the market, can find the employees you are looking for, set up the needed processes and culture, and after you have done the investment, your company will be able to buy a team that has worked alongside you and has the know-how about your product or service.

Thus you’ll retain the core knowledge about your business within your inner circle and not lose it in the classic situation where the development team is not owned by you and some of the team members are moved out of the project due to more profitable opportunities.

By choosing usyou can get

Lower total cost

The BOT model is a rather smart way of outsourcing, which effectively saves time & money for recruitment and staffing agencies.

Cost management and growth

With the right experienced resources, there is a bigger idea pool that can help boost your development into the right direction. Transference is optional. You will have direct control on hiring, retention, as well as complete transparency with the engineering team and their day to day activities.

Rapid scaling on demand - easy scale-up & scale-down

If you need rapid scaling of IT operations through an experienced resource, that can fill up the gaps in your business model, then the BOT model is perfect for you. As your IT partner, we will take care of all IT matters, leaving more room for you to brainstorm for rapid scaling.

Access of ready IT trained resources

Once the model is started, you will get access to poll of resources which are experienced and ready to start operation. The company can simply time the resources as well as the eventual transfer once the resources are ready – often based on goals being met as well as quality metrics.

Flexibility and minimized risks

Risk is minimized since the outsourcing partner already understands the conditions, expertise of the resources, and the needs of the project to be performed. As a result, we are already often readily prepared for possible problems that could happen during the time.
