Product companies turn to Flex R&D to quickly and accurately translate product concepts to technical partners who will then clearly understand what to develop. We develop technical specification of the prototype, identify and contract with the technical partner on the client’s behalf (so their interest remains confidential), and we work with the technical partner to complete the prototype. As part of the prototype engagement we also provide an initial roadmap outlining the schedule, budget, and complexity involved to fully develop and commercialize the product.
Along the way we remove a number of challenges product companies face when developing prototypes — including the arduous task of finding and engaging just the right technical partner. We have excellent relationships with a wide network of large and small companies in both established and emerging technologies. So, for us, recruiting the best partner is easy and quick. We also have the expertise that lets us know what is technically feasible and how to explain concepts in the terms the partner understands.
The result is a better prototype, a more efficient prototyping process, and ultimately a finished product that better meets our client’s technical, cost, and market criteria.
