Perhaps the most challenging and exciting businesses are those that are borne either from a ‘eureka’ moment or from a resolute belief that something can be improved upon. Companies such as these typically have low resources coupled with high drive, they want to see progress and work tirelessly towards that end. In many cases, these entrepreneurs need a sounding-board against which to voice their opinions, develop ideas and understand the road ahead – from idea to product.
This is exactly how we help with automation for start-ups. We work closely with our small business clients, encouraging and guiding them through the often complex landscapes that they face. Whether it is sourcing and selecting a suitable moulding company, automation provider or sub-contract manufacturer, we help to develop solid foundations from ideas and deliver robust strategies that get fantastic results.
Automa8 has worked in conjunction with numerous (often government funded) schemes designed specifically to help smaller start-ups receive expert advice for minimal cost. We have found that through a combination of detailed planning and well-defined guidelines small funds can be maximised to achieve enormous benefits.
Our business understands that every project is unique and that often funds can be highly constricting in the decision making process. For this very reason, we offer our clients a simple ‘pay-as-you-go’ service, tailor-made to the specific requirements of the individual project rather than focused on complex and lengthy contracts.
Some examples of the services our automation experts provide to start-up businesses include:
- Concept and plan review; where are we now, where do we need to be and how do we get there?
- Market assessment overview; is the project commercially viable?
- Product assessment; the who, what, why where and when of your product
- Sourcing suitable suppliers and services
- Developing specifications; for suppliers and equipment
- Options for manufacture; local, nationwide or global? Manual or automated?
Running a business can often feel like an isolated place. If you are planning a new launch or simply want to clarify that you are on the right track, contact Automa8 – we can help.
