A good product will help you strengthen and expand your market, market is always full of homogeneous products, and vicious price competition will degrade product quality and ultimately damage the interests of customers. In order to obtain reasonable profits, various well-known brands continue to develop new products and provide new products with new appearance and more features and functions.
As a small but beautiful regional brand company, outsourcing development and design is an efficient means in order to secure a place in the fierce competition. Blue Jay focuses on the power automation and power protection industries. Based on years of development experience, we can provide partners with one-stop design customization services in following three types:
Entrusting party wishes to re-edit/organize according to the existing product UI files from Blue Jay.
Please pay a certain amount in advance as the purchase fund for the accessories, which required for the production of label/stickers etc. Blue Jay will sign one-year purchase intention contract with you. If the accessories are not consumed out before expiration date, we will scrap them and will not return the advance money.
Notes: This requires the client to provide the trademark authorization letter of the sales area or country.
Entrusting party is basically satisfied with Blue Jay existing products, and want to add or reduce some software functions, may also reduce unnecessary hardware functions or adjust some hardware parameters to save cost or other purpose.
Please purchase target product at least once as an initial test sample, after clarifying existing product performance, then provide a document or email list to declare function requirement.
Blue Jay Engineer Team will evaluate all of your needs in a short time. This cycle will take about 2-15 days. During this period, our Sales Team will discuss with client of potential order frequency and the approximate annual purchase quantities. Also will collects necessary information for developing project use.
After that, Sales Team will re-quote the products. If clients accept new quotation, please re-order 2-3 pcs test samples for functional inspection. Blue Jay engineers will spend 3-15 days to make special modifications to the product to meet the requirements, the timeline depends on complexity level of the requirement. At last there will be 2 situations:
A.- Satisfy with acceptance test, products will assign a new PN code and ready for formal procurement process, Client can order it via this new PN code in future;
B.- Not satisfy with acceptance test, client must provide detailed feedback document (1) of the unsatisfied points or defect of sample in 10 days. Blue Jay will do best effort deal with it in the shortest possible time through remote assistance or a free to replace test samples. If still not satisfied, we will quit this OEM-II order.
Entrusting party expects to improve or imitate existing products, requires a new industrial design, or changes / reconstructs the functions of Blue Jay‘s existing products to meet specific market needs.
Please purchase samples from Blue Jay at least once, or provide sample products to Blue Jay as an initial function check. Then provide detailed requirements documents, including but not limited to application scenarios, installation dimensions, description of functional requirements, etc.
Blue Jay will sign a non-disclosure agreement with client first, then Engineer Team will carefully evaluate all your needs, this cycle will take about 7-30 days. During this period, our Sales Team will discuss with expected price range of final product, they also can cooperate with your marketing staff to explore the competitors price, functional differences and other information of similar products in the certain target market.
Engineer team will submit 1-3 feasible technical solutions according to target price range after evaluation period. Based on annual purchase quantities and further market evaluation, you can make a decision to choose one solution and move to next stage. This will take approximately 10-20 days in our experience.
We will draw up a development contract, stipulating the obligations of both parties and list all valid agreeing terms during former conversation period.
After signing the contract and paying the development fee, Blue Jay will enter the formal development phase. Depending on the difficulty level of the project, will take about 40-90 days, generally divided into 4 stages:
P-1. Circuit schematic design;
P-2. PCB circuit board drawing and external processing; Product industrial design (if there need);
P-3. Component procurement and welding; 3D proofing of enclosure (if there need);
P-4. Prototype products coding and final in factory testing.
2-3 prototypes with enclosure will be delivered after pass in factory test, client need to do acceptance functional test as soon as possible, we hope to get formal feedback within 30 days. There may have 2 situations:
A.- Satisfy with acceptance test, will enter the enclosure mold making process (2). After final UI design is completed, 2-3pcs pre-production units will be delivered again for final confirmation. After final acceptance inspect, it will be assign a new PN code, and enter formal production stage;
B.- Not satisfy with acceptance test, after client providing detailed feedback document (1), Blue Jay engineer will arrange modify prototypes free of charge within the scope agreed in the development contract, and provide samples again. This may take 10-180 days or longer, if there have multiple times modify.
If the prototypes still fail acceptance test due to Blue Jay’s reasons, we will suspend this ODM project and refund the development fee (3) that has been paid.
Mark (1): The feedback document must include following information at least:
.- Test pictures or videos in the installation or use environment.
.- Text content that can accurately express the discrepancies with original requirement.
.- Description of test methods and steps against products performance in such test steps.
.- Other information you thought is important.
Please use email to transmit feedback document! If conversation on chat tools, please organize and edit it into one or multiple documents for transmission via email.
Mark (2): If there are requirements for appearance, generally need to redesign new mold for enclosure, unless the client provides the enclosure by itself. Blue Jay has long-term cooperation mold companies, can provide quotations for evaluation after the development phase begins. Client can also find a suitable mold company by itself. Blue Jay only needs to receive valid enclosure that meets the acceptance criteria before the official production.
Mark (3): If the acceptance fails due to client’s intentional obstacle or other factors, Blue Jay may seek a third-party laboratory for independent testing. If the product meets the design requirements on developing contract after test, Blue Jay have right to refusing refund. Under this situation, Blue Jay will recover the paid laboratory fees from the client
