Product Integration: How WM Industries Streamlines the Manufacturing Process


If you're overwhelmed by the process of taking your product from concept to market, you're not alone. Working with multiple vendors to complete individual parts of the manufacturing cycle has left many companies and individuals frustrated and sometimes even stalled, not knowing where to turn next. Or worse, they've wasted precious money and time on individual components that don't mesh well because they were manufactured by different companies. This approach is neither efficient nor cost-effective.



While there are many good manufacturing companies, it's difficult to find a partner that can map out the vision for your product from start to finish. Increasingly, individuals are turning to product integrators to help them with this challenge.



Why You Need a Product Integrator



Product integrators serve as a single touch point to help entrepreneurs, innovators and companies take their ideas from the design phase all the way through to end-user distribution. A product integrator provides engineering, prototyping manufacturing, finishing and marketing all under one roof.



Often, innovators have a great idea but either don't know where to turn to get the ball rolling or are turned down by manufacturers who don't want to work on small-scale, untested projects. A product integrator can help you determine if your idea — large or small — is viable, then create a roadmap for turning it into a reality. But the partnership doesn't have to stop there.



A product integrator can also help you scale your product to ensure it can be produced in large quantities within your budget, then engineer and manufacture it for you. The best product integrators can even provide distribution and marketing services for your product.



The 3 Qualities of a Great Product Integrator



When choosing a product integrator to work with, you should look for a company that can provide you with all of the following benefits:



1 Holistic approach from concept to distribution

Rather than taking a piecemeal approach to manufacturing, product integrators hold your hand every step of the way.



2 All the experts you need under one roof

In contrast to a consultative approach, a product integrator should offer the talent and expertise you need in-house. Great product integrators provide the complete package of expertise, equipment and manpower.



3 Experience with diverse industries and products

The product integrator you choose should have a history of working with a wide variety of industries and a broad range of products.
