INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Turnkey Solution'

For example, a company looking to implement an online billing feature on its website can use third-party providers to process each transaction and handle all the technical issues surrounding this complicated process. The use of a turnkey solution in this case allows the company to avoid the headaches of programming the tool in house and the approvals associated with developing a billing system from scratch.
