Benefits

There are a number of benefits to a business gained by employing the services of a consultancy:

  • Provision of specific technical skills that are non-existent or in short supply in-house.
  • Speed, because the consultancy team (unlike the in-house management) isn’t distracted by other tasks.
  • Unique solutions that reflect the circumstances and aspirations of the client.
  • Exposure to expertise derived from other industries and sectors.
  • Change management skills enhanced by the consultant’s position as independent and objective.

For many start-up companies, designs reach the prototype stage and satisfy the technical requirements of their inventors. However, delivering the product to market against time and cost can be a more difficult prospect.

With knowledge of manufacture and test J4intech can help to bridge that gap and go on to assist with technical documentation, training and other aspects of implementation.

​Larger organisations evolve processes over time which can become outdated and inefficient. Time to market is increasingly critical for new products.

J4intech can review the existing product lifecycle process and recommend lean efficiency and cost improvements, balanced against quality and reliability requirements. .

​​​​Investors looking to fund technology companies require a due diligence assessment of the opportunity from financial and technology perspectives

J4intech can assess the potential of the technology and associated route to market, viability of manufacturing process, plans, etc.​

Most managers tend to see the problems and solutions they understand and may give less consideration to those outside their own realm of experience.

​J4intech can work with you to identify your business issues  and develop a plan to address them, using internal and external resources as appropriate.

Loss of technical staff at critical times in a project can lead to delays and errors. Short term workload peaks that don't justify permanent recruitment can delay projects.

​J4intech can assist in these circumstances by providing skilled technical or project management resource for the interim period.

Case Study

Application of Time of Flight to a sensor product.
Traditional infra-red safety curtain products are able to get an indication of the separation of the transmitter and receiver elements based on the attenuation of signal.  This however is not accurate due to variation in the sensors, installation alignment, etc. and hence cannot be used as a reliable measure.  By integrating a Time of Flight reflective sensor into the product it was possible to accurately determine the separation whilst being insensitive to the variations of mounting positions.
