A great idea needs nurturing to turn it into a viable product. Our concept designers determine whether and how your product could work in practice and how it should look.
Our duty is always to reduce risk, this allows better financial planning for your company and better assurance your products will come to realisation. Proper planning minimises risk.
All our projects however big or small are managed with a development plan. A weekly or even daily plan of activities encompassing the whole project in every aspect.
At the end of each phase we have milestone criteria for Cost, Quality and Delivery that have to be achieved before moving on to the next phase.
Styling and Visualisation
Until recently to answer this question you needed to actually make and test a product before finding that the concept did not work visually. With the advent of high end CAD systems you can now evaluate your concepts in the virtual world.
Some graphics packages and surface visualisation techniques will allow you to ‘See’ your products in such reality you would be forgiven for forgetting that they actually do not exist in the physical world yet!
We can offer a full computer visualization service making your ideas into virtual products. We can do this from existing CAD data or make full clay models for digitization.
Our business is about helping you and making you more efficient, this is one of our core values. Hundreds of concepts are rejected before making any headway into becoming an actual product. This can be a constant drain on your resources and over time new concepts become even harder to realise from your existing staff.
We can bring a new set of values and a new fresh eyes approach to your concept generation. We can either facilitate this process with your existing staff or come to the table with new concepts based on a design brief from you.
We can do as little or as much as you need from simply managing your concept development to providing fully working concept models for you to evaluate and set the next direction.
Benchmarking & Market Research
Understanding your market, your own and competitors' products and services is essential to your success.
We can analyse your product, supply chain, services and so on and give you an objective analysis of how you compare with the ‘Benchmark’ companies. You can use this data to target specific markets, specific suppliers or use the information to ensure your existing suppliers are offering truly competitive costs.
We have prepared all forms of benchmark analysis for our customers from simply evaluating suppliers' processes and making detailed analytical reports to full research into the necessary requirements to enter a new market.
A brand value can contribute massively to the polularity of a product or service. Premium brands qualify for premium prices because the brand influences customers' perception in many cases more than the product or service. We can evaluate existing branding strategies or develop strategies for new products and services.
