Helping clients move off the drawing board onto the shelf. 1. Mission. To provide highly efficient, high impact solutions to companies seeking to enter the global consumer market for consumer and technology products. Concept.
To provide highly efficient, high impact solutions to companies seeking to enter the global consumer market for consumer and technology products.
There are companies out there that either need to bring products to market but don’t know how, or retailers, service providers and OEMs that want specific products but don’t know how to source them, or companies that need help setting up various facets of their business (such as finance and human resources, sourcing, supply chain logistics, quality assurance, product and process qualification, after-sales support, refurbishment processes, etc.).
Evo Consulting has the knowledge to help all of these potential clients by either consulting with them on high level strategy, teaching them how to create and manage these services, helping them set up and run these services, or actually performing some or all of these services for them. Graphically it can be described as:
Explain -----> Teach -----> Help -----> Do
Consult on high level strategy
Teach how to create and manage appropriate services
Help set up some or all facets of the business and outsourced services
Provide some or all of needed services directly on an interim or ongoing basis
Any company that need to bring products to market but doesn’t have the established experience and knowledge in place.
Technology start-up companies with great product ideas but no way to build and deliver into the market. Evo Consulting can assist these types of companies seeking help in the retail market –- from developing product specifications to backend customer support services, and everything in between.
Retailers that either have a niche product in mind or an in-house brand strategy, but they either don’t know how to have the product built and delivered, or they know all to well from experience that they need help in doing so.
OEM and ODM manufacturers and service providers that want to develop their own branded products rather than merely building for others. These companies have a pipeline of various product ideas, but they have no experience at selling products at retail or caring for consumers who might buy their products.Customers
