MultiDesk Smart Height Adjustable Workstation (Canceled)
MultiDesk Smart Height Adjustable Workstation. The desk remembers users preferences and automatically adjusts to their height.
Thanks everyone for checking out this campaign. This is for a product called MultiDesk. It is a height adjustable smart workstation. There are a bunch of these out there but what makes this unique is the fact that the desk connects to your network, be it local or remote. This database contains all the user ID's that have stored preferences for sitting and standing heights. The users are recognized by the multidesk and RFID card tags automatically adjust the desk for whatever the user sets. The desk can be controlled either with the included software or by manual buttons located on the desk itself. The desk provides the user with the height feedback and also how much session time has been spent standing or sitting. The desk itself is 24" wide by 48" long and can support two monitors, a keyboard and a phone or really anything up to 200lbs. The height adjusts to from 60 to 130 cm (24 to 51 inches). At present time, the desk comes in white and chocolate table finishes. For more detailed product descriptions, photos and videos check out https://www.facebook.com/soreltech.
I've chosen Kickstarter for this project as I need to generate about 50 orders to fulfill the minimum order quantities from some suppliers. With this number I can price the desk as I've listed in the rewards. If we generate more support this price may be revised as I'd like to pass any possible savings onto you!
So the hopes are that with the support of all you I can get this project off the ground, generate some buzz, build up inventory and generally get things moving. If funding is successful I can place and order and get my parts within 90 days, and ship soon after.
The product has a Canadian Patent Pending, # 2,928,420
Risks and challenges
One of the biggest challenges, as I've stated, is getting 50 orders to fulfill minimum order quantities. If I get a large amount of preorders, another challenge I could face, is facility space and personnel required to complete the orders and ship them out in a timely fashion. I've been doing my homework and have leads on handling both of these "problems" should they arise so it should be covered. Other problems could include supplier delays, which I would unfortunately have no control over. So far everything is in stock except the actuator legs which have a substantial lead time. That is somewhat of a blessing as it gives myself and my team time to prepare the control boxes, desks, shipping containers and perform quality assurance. Once the legs come in they can be simply added to the packages and shipped out.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
