Hello Backers: Welcome to my project!
This is my first time on Kickstarter. It has been quite the journey from an idea to a market-ready product in less than a year. Today, I want to share my story with you, as to why; after working for over 20 years at Fortune 500 companies, a couple start-ups, being an engineer, and a recent graduate from a top-tier b-school (http://www.linkedin.com/in/grohit); I have decided to pursue a path of developing open-source based products for homes and small offices.
Working at large enterprises, I have experienced many technology solutions. However, I do not see most of these solutions in our homes or small offices. For example, at home, we use cordless phones and answering machines where as large businesses use soft-phones and voicemail. The reasons span factors of cost, complexity of skills, manageability, etc. This has motivated me to find lean ways to create high-end solutions at a cost-efficient price point.
The journey with Crux LX has been full of challenges but we hope to find your support, which will make the journey worthwhile. We would love for you to support us, try this product, benefit from it, and share your feedback.
Risks and challenges
Between July - September 2017, we concluded extensive beta trials across a variety of customers in different environments and industries, from corporate offices to manufacturing factories to hospitals and multi-acre education campuses. The 8 units sold to beta customers have performed flawlessly with no failures or defects reported over last two quarters. Crux Labs' demo unit is usually powered ON and in use for over 9 months now, and constantly monitored for issues. In our assessment, the unit is production ready. The trials, along with the testing that we have performed during development of product, along with no defects being found at any of the deployed locations over last quarter, minimizes your risk in backing this project. We are 100% committed to delivering the promised product into your hands before end of February 2018.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
