Risks and challenges
While there are always risks & challenges with creating and delivering a brand new product especially something like the Solar Scroll, we have already allocated substantial resources to minimise both.
In order to mitigate any risks, we identified key aspects of the project upfront and have already completed majority of the challenging phases to ensure we deliver a perfect quality product on time and fulfill our commitment to you. For instance, the tooling for the internal retracting mechanism, the CIGS solar panels and the PCBA has already been completed prior to launching the Solar Scroll on Kickstarter.
Once we start reaching our set goals on Kickstarter we will initiate the tooling for the remaining plastic components right away. Injection Moulding can be a bit tricky and it often takes 3~4 trials to get the components right which again is a very natural part of the process but a potential cause for delay. However, this is where our core strength lies. We have over 13 years of manufacturing experience specializing in injection moulds and confident we will get this right. We are practically ready to start the tooling up, just waiting for the green signal.
Our biggest advantage is that we are located very close to our manufacturing facilities and our own Quality Control team will be present onsite 24 x 7 overseeing the entire production run. In case of any unforeseeable delays we will be able to quickly mobilise any resources required making sure the matter is dealt with immediately.
We have our trusted freight forwarder with whom we have conducted business for several years and have shipped thousands of containers globally. Furthermore, we have our own warehouse in the US from where we will personally oversee the distribution so that it does not turn into a logistical nightmare.
Although this is our first Kickstarter Campaign, it is worth nothing that we are the manufacturers and we have decade worth of experience delivering high quality products all over the world. Collectively we amass plenty of manufacturing knowledge and have a dedicated team of experts on standby. We have full control over every phase of the project right from raw material procurement to delivering the Solar Scroll to our backers.
Even with all the resources at our disposal there is always a possibility of challenges & delays as associated with a brand new product. We firmly believe is communication and it is our responsibility to keep you fully updated on all progress and let you know about any potential delays well in advance.
To put it simply, we will deliver your Solar Scroll on time and it will function as it says on the tin.
