Most new ideas start by talking. Discussions are a great way to plan out a project or concept in general terms. At Product Evolution we will invite you to discuss your ideas and concepts in order to find out your requirements for a particular product. It is important for us both to understand the project and the direction it needs to follow.

We can then prepare a project plan for you to consider, which will aim to fulfil your needs and expectations. At the end of the discussions we will be clear as to the way forward with no obligation on your part.

You may have just the problem you want to solve, but haven’t the opportunity or means to solve it. You may not have the manpower or skills. You may simply want to know if your idea is patentable.

This is where Product Evolution can help. Through creating a basic design specification based upon your requirements, we can begin to identify any potential issues that we may need to develop solutions for and help to focus the ideas into something achievable. We can then begin to plan what the next steps should be.

If you want to convert an idea into a product for manufacture, the first stage, whether or not you want to patent it, is to see if it currently exists or has been patented already.

We can carry out a patent search to see if your idea is new or is likely to be infringing someone else’s patent. This will hopefully ensure the path is clear for your new product.

If your marketplace requires you to obtain some form of legal protection, or if you feel that this is required to protect your idea, we can advise you as to the best route to take, be it copyright, patents or registered designs.

After we have completed the steps above, it is now time for us to prepare a project plan for you to approve. We will include all the stages necessary to take your idea into production. Each stage will be costed with clearly set out goals, milestones and deliverables. When this plan is agreed and the project is underway, progress will be reported to you as and when required.
