Product and Project Management:
(Continued from above)
Our founder, CEO and product designer, Scott Cywinski, would be working directly with you and leading all management consulting. The buck stops with him. You will always be able to pick up the phone and ask for him directly. Scott has 29 years of business experience.
Coordinating and Communicating with Personnel:
Scott has dealt with all types of people and professionals during his career.
Since he’s an engineer, he is able to discuss technical aspects of any project with manufacturers, contractors, engineers and software developers.
Also, since he has run IDT Electronics for 25 years, he also understands how to communicate affectively with employees, designers, back office personnel, vendors, as well as management and owners.
We can certainly help streamline your manufacturing processes. We can analyze your current in-house, contractor or hybrid manufacturing processes, or create new processes from scratch. This would include determining what processes can be done in-house and which should be contracted.
We can contact and analyze various contract manufacturers and vendors and create a comprehensive report on our findings, with recommendations.
We can research and analyze manufacturing equipment, along with the support, warranties and policies that go along with the equipment.
Marketing, Advertising, Social Media & SEO:
We don’t pretend to specialize in marketing and advertising, although we can certainly handle all aspects in limited situations. However, we can coordinate and communicate with marketing and advertising agencies and explain to them what your goals and needs are.
We will also take all communication and work that we do with the agencies and distill it down to whatever level of detail you require, and then will update you via conversations and reports.
In other words, we can insulate you from however much of the mundane day-to-day work of the marketing and advertising that you wish, so that you only focus on your goals, needs, resources allotted to the marketing and advertising campaigns, etc.
Procedures and Processes:
Designing, creating and implementing procedures and processes is extraordinarily important to a business. They can be used to make the daily operations of a business, especially back-office run smoothly and efficiently. They will decrease employee errors, as well as employee stress. This will result in a better work environment.
Another area that procedures and processes are important is relating to assembly and production, as well as warehousing and shipping of products. With supply chain issues, inflation and an increase of cost-of-goods, it is extraordinarily important to process products as efficiently as possible.
Processes can be computer-related, such as processes in software and databases. They can be implemented via electronics and hardware, such as data-acquisition device (DAQ), barcode scanners and RFID (radio frequency identification).
But remember, practical, hands-on processes are just as important. Just one important example are processes to help workers in warehouses, on manufacturing floors or at physical locations reduce the change of acute or repetitive overuse injuries.
In summary, let’s create an analogy, where we compare your company to a building.
Your employees, company brand and products/services can be considered the foundation of your business.
Processes and procedures can be considered the structural framing that allows the company to be built upon your foundation.
Without proper framing, a building will be unsteady, flimsy and unsafe.
Likewise, without proper processes and procedures, you’ll have an unstable, uncontrollable company.
