Everything you ever wanted to know about Turnkey Solutions but were afraid to ask!


What is a Turnkey Solution?

Think of your car and how (hopefully!) all you need to get it going is to simply turn the key. This is how turnkey business solutions work: they are off-the-shelf products or services that are ready to use as soon as you decide to buy them and ‘turn the key’. As opposed to custom-built products and services, ready-made ones have been pre-designed with default features that go with them. Buy vs. build should not be a dilemma - it all boils down to your business needs.

As it is in all things business,  everything comes with a set of advantages and disadvantages. Here are some of the pros and cons of turnkey business solutions that you should consider before deciding to go for the off-the-shelf option:




Readily available



Unnecessary Features





  • Readily Available. If you’re working on a tight schedule, turnkey solutions are just waiting for your green light prior to implementation.
  • If you’re looking for tried and tested business solutions that not only went through a stringent design process, but also passed the watchful eyes of businesses that implemented them before yours, then these off-the-shelf solutions may be for you.
  • Cost-effective. Because it’s turnkey, it’s been developed and costed for use by many clients, so you can have a professionally designed solution for your business without major expense.


  • Have a lot of ideas or want to tweak things a little bit? Turnkey solutions may not give you enough flexibility or creativity to meet the custom needs for your business.
  • Unnecessary Features. Ready-to-go solutions are principally designed as a one-size-fits-all bundled solution. Some businesses have unique needs and there might be features that may not be useful.
