INDIVIDUAL APPROACH

The road from the idea to the finished product is usually long and winding. What’s more, they route varies because each product is different. But you don’t need to worry because we will be with you at every turn. At each stage, we will assist you with our knowledge and experience. We are also able to adapt to your needs and to the requirements of the project.

TURNING IDEA INTO A PRODUCT

The first step is up to you. Call us or email us. We are eager to talk to you and respond to your e-mails. Even more so to meet in person. We will keep your secrets – everything stays between us. If you wish, we can prepare and sign an NDA.

Now that we’ve got your trust you can tell us about your project and expectations. The more info you share, the better chances we will get to know your needs. In-depth understanding of your problem is crucial because it lets us look at the bigger picture and come up with various solutions.

Picking the right solution is only the beginning. We have to work out a lot of project details together. Mutual commitment is the key to obtaining a good specification. It is the most important phase because you decide where do you want to invest your money. Moreover, we are unable to present our offer if we don’t know the details related to your project.

As important as a detailed specification are the contract conditions. The final offer also depends on various factors such as:

  • Estimated completion date.
  • Terms and the period of warranty.
  • Responsibility for problems that might occur.

Our offer is only a proposal. If it doesn’t meet your expectations, don’t hesitate to tell us why. We are keen to hear you out and adjust our offer to satisfy your needs.

We will be waiting for you to green-light our offer. As soon as you do, we will rush the work on your project.

It is our favourite phase. Finally, we can do what we are best at – designing hardware and software. You have to give us enough time because this stage can take up to a few months (depending on the complexity of your project). During this time we will keep you up to date with the project progress.

During R&D we will prepare first prototypes, which we will use to test and develop software. You will see the first results of our work by the end of this project phase.

The R&D phase will generate first official prototypes. They will be yours to test. We would like to know if the prototypes meet your expectations. Now is the time to refine the details and introduce possible fixes. At the end of this phase, we would like to build the final version of your product. Time needed to perform thorough testing depends on the project specifics and the degree of your involvement.

Ultimately, your device has taken its final shape. It is high time for us to prepare your device for production. The closest time we will spend on completing the manufacturing documents such as:

  • Schematics.
  • PCB layouts.
  • Test procedures.
  • Testing, launching and user manuals.
  • Production files (PCB and solder paste masks, BOMs).

At the end of this phase, we will handle the entire production documentation over to you. You will decide whether you would like to manage the production yourself or have it done by us.

We start the production process by sending inquiries to a few manufacturers. After receiving their offers, we compile them into one document. This approach allows us to compare manufacturing costs for various order amounts and manufacturers. We will collectively choose the best manufacturer.

We will oversee the whole production process. Each device is thoroughly tested using strict procedures. After a successful pass, we assign the device a unique serial number. Additionally, we generate test reports, which helps us in tracking the device’s history. If you wish, we can give you these test reports in both paper and digital forms.

From our experience, collaboration does not end after the production phase. Even the best product on the market can’t give you the position of the leader permanently. To maintain it you have to change your product accordingly to your customer’s needs.

Most of you contact us after a short amount of time. Usually with ideas for new functionalities to your products. Sometimes external devices communicating with your product change. It forces you to modernise your product. We are always waiting for you with open arms and ready to cooperate.
