The Sourcing Process

Idea 2 Reality enjoys both in-house manufacturing capabilities as well as having direct access to an extensive list of prequalified and regularly audited suppliers located throughout the globe. 

As a result, our clients can often get access to perfectly matched supply chain services with clear knowledge sourced from our partners, whom have first undergone a stringent auditing program focussing on key attributes, such as: quality control, environmental compliance, employee welfare, and safety – as well as commercial and corporate governance credentials.

In short – our clients enjoy a complete “one stop shop” suite of services saving time, money, and stress.

The Budgeting Process

Obtaining an indicative and realistic budget “price to produce” as quickly as possible is often one of the most pivotal steps in both determining the broader commercial merits of any project.  The team at Idea 2 Reality will reinforce this message throughout the process so as to ensure our clients are making informed decisions rather than emotional ones.

Associated tooling costs (or capital outlays) are also outlined during the budgeting process given the potential impact costs such as this often have on the ultimate products “cost to market”. Tooling and set up costs are typically amortised into the products sale price with a shorter cost recovery period obviously resulting in a higher cost recovery impact.
