How to leverage Alizem software and expertise for your new product development?
New product development is difficult because there are so many constraints to be met at the same time: performance, right feature set, budget, time, regulations, etc. It is also very difficult to find people having the exact needed expertise and to keep them assigned to a project that may suffer from important unexpected delays for many reasons (financing, customers delays, bugs, components supply, etc.).
Alizem can help you in this process and work with the following:
- step-by-step approach from new product idea, to prototype to production;
- saving time, risks and costs by using pre-tested hardware and software components;
- one-stop-shop having all expertises needed offered on an 'on-tap' approach, i.e. only when needed, and save a lot of unexpected project delays;
- turnkey prototype for your application from which you can start with your own application-specific modifications, test and product development - including the training for your team to use the provided prototype.
- industrial motor drives,
- medical devices,
- auxiliary systems for automotive and aerospace,
- solar power pumps, etc.
Typical services offered:
1- SoW: To build a comprehensive statement-of-work (SoW) document based on your project requirements that includes all deliverables, budget and timeline needed so that you can correctly assess costs and take a go/no-go decision for your project. You can do this for a very low fixed fee through this SUPER PACKAGE!
2- New product Prototype: To build a system prototype, based on requirements established together in the SoW, so that you can start your product development from a low-risk base. Prototype can be for proof of concept level up to full product prototype.
3- Prior art: Knowing about your application and being experts in the field, we can look for existing prior art (IP, software, systems, etc.) that could be leveraged to reduce risk and accelerate your product development. This is a great way to avoid to reinvent the wheel and to repeat past mistakes from others. If great IP is found along the way, we can operate what's needed to get in your project (qualification, porting, integration, etc.).
4- Long-term software maintenance: Once your new product is released, reduce your cost of ownership by having a long-term software maintenance contract with Alizem. It makes sure the software is always updated and in-line with the technology state-of-the-art. This is a great alternative to keeping the expertise in-house and assigned to this product.
** Governement funding available **
Once a you have entered into a Licensing agreement with Alizem, your project may be elligible to a broad range of Canada and Quebec governement funding innovation programs. Another great way to reduce project costs!
