Thanks to IoT, companies will be able to grab more data about their processes, track every step of the supply chain, hence improving efficiency and potentially reducing costs. In the end, market agility will be enhanced.
Adopting IoT will allow companies to create valuable processes for the customers (e.g. adapting faster to their needs) and to monetise the services they will offer to these clients. They will therefore diversify the way they make money by generating new revenue streams.
Smart devices allow smart decisions: having information from one end to another allows companies to make instant change on logistics, support, or even prices.
Balanced by experience
At each phase, we will provide you a complete report of what we did and you’ll tell us if we go further into the development process. Our experience has showed us that hardware needs to be tackled in a certain way. We therefore propose different workload packages.
What do you want to build?
We iterate and build your product: first a skateboard; then a bike; then a car.
Does the product meet the pre-defined specifications?
Building the first 10 items was great. Now let’s build a ton of it.
To reach different markets, you will need different certifications.
Three, two, one: ready for take off!
The first step, which we call the “conceptualisation phase” is really about feasibility of the project: aligning on user-stories and features, defining approximate timelines, fixed and unit costs to see whether it makes sense in terms of the business case. Example: if we find out that we cannot make a device cheaper than what the market is ready to pay for, even for large batches, it doesn’t make sense for you to go further with this project, or at least with us ;-). That’s said if your business model is (at least partially) based on selling devices, of course.
The fourth phase is the industrialisation phase where we go to our partners for industrialisation, at this time we order a pre-production to get a first batch for a beta-testing.
The second phase is a development phase where we are going to develop the first prototypes, make the first tests and build the right product iteratively. You’ll have tangible things in hands to play with: a sort of reality check between idea and real product. At the end of this phase we will deliver a batch of a few extra prototypes that need to be tested thoroughly during the next phase.
The fifth phase is a validation phase where we validate all the aspects of the product and we make all kinds of quality checks and the required certifications.
The third step is the testing phase where we measure the tech specifications according to a pre-defined test protocol that we build together depending on the use cases. Further development can occur during this phase as well, depending on the results of the testing. This happens iteratively until we get the right product.
The sixth phase is the deployment phase where we order a first batch of the finalised product.
