What does a real partner do?
As a business, we believe our success is directly tied to the success of our clients. We believe partners share a common goal. In this case, it’s your success. So, real partners have shared goals.
All our expertise, training, and thought power are put into helping you within our area of expertise. Not trying to nickel and dime you.
A good partner is only worth their weight if their insights are put to use. If not, who cares about your experience unless it’s working for you. Sadly, we see many in our industry that will not do anything outside the scope of the work. They may see something that but not disclose it because it may, “take too much time to explain”. There is a lot that can go wrong for people new to sourcing and creating products. And unless you have a trusted partner you’re more likely to overlook some things you just are not familiar with.
We hate wasting time and money as much as you do. Have a question? Give us a call. Want our opinion? No problem.
Our experience in helping larger customers as well as smaller customers has helped us to see the difference in need and build a program that allows new products to get started off right. Read more to see how we help.
We’re built to handle new products
After our initial call and product review, we begin our product development plan.
Many companies offer vague and proposals that don’t include the whole story of getting your product made and to market.
Our plan takes into account your needs as an entrepreneur by breaking out each step of the process from design to going to market.
Best of all we include pricing for each step.
We know entrepreneurs bring a lot of skills and talents to the game. On the product development plan, we make sure to break out each step and cost individually. This means if you are a product designer then you obviously don’t need our design help and we can scratch that cost off the list.
Here’s how we help control your costs
When assessing your needs, we take an end-to-end approach to product development.
This means we review all potential scenarios with you. Because we ‘ve done these hundreds of times, we can detect where you may run into some unplanned issues. And we make sure to let you know about those issues and how it affects other parts of the plan.
Having a set of trained eyes on your team will be a massive win in the short and long-term as it can save you tons of time and money.
We also break out all our services into an a la carte style structure. This is designed to keep your costs by allowing you to choose only what you need. It’s not a take it or leave it to approach.
Offices in China
We have a team in China to help keep the factory in check. They are responsible for quality and holding the factory accountable for the production schedule. Take it from people who know—it’s not very fun to live in a factory for 6 months. So just let us take care of all that and we’ll keep you updated on the progress.
It all starts with a free product review. Our free product reviews include having a chat with one of the product engineers. He will get the scope of your product and make sure we are a good fit for each other. If everything looks good then we will create a product development plan for you.
