BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder of Innovia in Australia. Innovia is a innovation and invention company with products for housing, transport, cycling apparel and cycling products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Sourci?

I needed to source a manufacturer and supplier for a newly designed cycling bag that could be mass produced for global market. Their knowledge and ability to translate my design description to a foreign company and translate the details back to me.

What were your goals for this project?

High quality materials, stitching, high quality fabrics, produced to a large order in a set time frame at a cost to my company that would be worthwhile to sell.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Sourci researched 26 companies in south east Asia, contacted 10 companies for a detailed quote and supplied me with a selection of companies with a detailed report and recommendation for 2 final quotes. Sourci organised samples and delivery which was my request.

Describe the project in detail.

I have designed a shoulder bag that fits into a bicycle frame. I needed to find a supplier/manufacturer that could follow my design and produce a quality bag at a reasonable retail price. Quality materials, workmanship, delivery times.

What was the team composition?

The two founders, one assigned me a project manager based in Melbourne, Australia who organised the work from studios in China. The Chinese team included colleagues to undertake the ground work and respond back to myself via Sourci.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Yes, quick clear, succinct email replies and progress reports when needed.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I'm the only member of the bag project so it was me dealing with a project manager from Sourci. All replies answered quickly and accurately, very easy to correspond with all times of the day.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Approachable team that explained their process and involvement. Intuitive behind-the-scenes work that didn't need instructing.

Are there any areas for improvement?

If you haven't used a service before it can be a little daunting. I would have liked a print out of the plan and the time frame. Sourci set me up with the Monday project plan which was very helpful.
