Custom Beacon Consultancy
For custom orders we can work on a consultancy fee basis. Many organisations come to us having failed to source custom beacons themselves directly from manufacturers. Unless you have an existing relationship with a manufacturer, you will usually find your enquiries either aren't taken seriously, aren't answered, are misunderstood or the purchased beacons aren't as expected. Sometimes organisations make the costly mistake of dealing with disreputable Alibaba middle-men rather than the end manufacturer.
We are the best connected and experienced company in the industry when it comes to dealing with the beacon manufacturers. Manufacturers trust us. We help you choose the right beacons. We jump start purchasing through knowing which manufacturers are open to doing the various types of customisation. We know the pertinent questions to ask of manufacturers, contact the right people for you, sidestep known problems and negotiate the best price for you as we know what is a sensible price. You end up buying direct from the manufacturer but with the assurance of advice and direction from ourselves.
- Consultancy related to using beacons with your idea.
- Refining of your beacon specification based on your needs, including regulatory certification.
- Working with our technical contacts at suitable manufacturers to work through a solution and price (we estimate this will take 5 to 8 weeks). We take no commission from the manufacturer.
- Advice on initial settings to be programmed at the factory to save you considerable configuration time.
- Advice on software integration.
We typically charge a fixed upfront fee of (from) six days consultancy for this service.
