Why British Businesses Choose Us
We offer a systematic product development programme that optimises the benefits of product development outsourcing and keeps our clients updated every step of the way.
By working with us, you can expect the following benefits from a new, strategic Chinese supplier partnership:
- Regular updates on all sample development
When a critical segment of your production is happening offshore, you’ll need professionals whom you can trust to oversee the entire production process. Our Shanghai team will send regular reports on your supplier’s or manufacturing partner’s progress.
- Proactive two-way dialogues
Many customers can forget the importance of having the confidence to ask a question – and it’s vital they do. We are here to listen and ensure your exact expectations are understood. More than relaying your requests, however, we arrange for two-way meetings between you and your supplier from our offices in the UK and China.
- Follow up factory visits and progress checks, made on your behalf
Our work doesn’t end at your contract signing. In fact, the bulk of the work begins right after. From our office in Shanghai, One Point Two (China) Limited monitors all of our clients’ suppliers and outsourced manufacturing companies. Rather than fly to Asia and incur additional costs, you can trust us to visit your supplier’s factory, check on their progress and report back with actionable recommendations.
- Acquisition of appropriate ISIR/FAIR reports and certificates for all samples produced
We back up our new product development progress updates with the Initial Sample Inspection Report or First Article Inspection Report. These summarise the dimensions of the actual parts produced. The results should confirm whether your supplier adhered to your technical specifications.
With our outsourced product development service, however, you don’t even have to wait for these reports to get reassurance. We keep a close watch on your supplier’s production and ensure they meet your standards for quality.
- Managed logistics, to ensure you receive all samples made
Our product development team in Shanghai also helps with the arrangements for sending prototypes and batches of finished products to the UK. We coordinate logistics with your Chinese suppliers and manufacturers, from their warehouses to your loading dock. Trust that we can get all items to your premises on time and in excellent condition.
- Professionally managed supplier relationship
Managing supplier relationships is woven into our product development service. As your outsourcing agent, we provide communication support, including translation service. More than that, however, we help clients better understand the working culture of the Chinese as well as their propensity to make time for entertaining business contacts and clients.
Establishing positive connections with Chinese suppliers also bleeds into the production side of the business. It reduces the possibility of miscommunication, which could drain the resources of everyone involved.
Our approach as outsourcing specialists is to support both customers and suppliers, ensuring there is steady progress towards an end goal. We use this method because we want our clients to forge strong business partnerships that could benefit their businesses for the long-term.
