Your company can’t do everything internally, and when your business needs to source a product or service, you might need to shop around.
An RFP allows you to collect offers from various vendors and choose the vendor that best meets your criteria, both in skill and budget.
Here, we’ve provided an RFP template you can follow for initial structure, as well as a sample RFP for further inspiration. But it isn’t one-size-fits-all — you’ll need to tailor your RFP to best state your company’s needs.
We spend the time with you upfront so we clearly understand your product needs. For contract manufacturing, this is a critical part of our process and allows us to employ end-to-end process management to keep our eyes across the production process in detail through effective quality controls.
We work with an international network of prescreened factories every day to help maximise production and quality and keep costs down.
With a full suite of machine engineering equipment at our disposal, through factories we trust, no project is beyond reach.
When trading with China, we engage eight core services at various points throughout our process.
We give our customers full control over the production of their products with a four step approval process.
To identify problems or risks early we have a four-step approval process. This process is customised for intensive production monitoring, meaning surprise delays, cost overruns or miscommunications are a thing of the past.
We have a New Zealand engineer assess all production processes and control systems for each factory. This means we carefully review factory abilities and management systems, production processes and policies, quality control systems, record keeping and social compliance, so that you don’t have to.
Our regular factory visits help us make sure designs are running to plan. We assure quality through pre-production, first article, in-process and final product inspections.
Prior to shipment, packaging needs are checked and sample products are inspected.
You had an idea, had it designed, prototyped, made your first smaller volume production and maybe your second.
Now you realise that to increase sales, market penetration and competitiveness you’re going to need higher volume production.
What do you do? How do you ‘successfully’ bridge the gap from lower volume to higher volume manufacturing? The following tips should help put your mind at ease.
We take the heat, you make the gains. Our business and support systems manage the risk of dealing with global manufacturers.
