Developing products efficiently – from idea through realization
From the earliest spark of an idea to a full embedded solution or data center offering—Avnet Integrated Solutions provides expert guidance and support to help intellectual property holders drive business success.
Opportunities abound for companies with unique and differentiated intellectual property—but if your IP depends on specialized computing systems, you face some significant challenges. The complexities and costs of integrating your software application with a hardware platform can impede innovation and distract you from your business goals. Whether you are building a product that relies on an embedded solution or creating a data center application or service, it takes significant expertise to identify, validate and integrate optimal technologies to meet your customers’ high expectations.
Additionally, you must decide how to effectively provide service for your product once it is deployed in the field. Global service infrastructure is expensive, but customer satisfaction drives future revenue streams.
Avnet Integrated Solutions is the one partner you need to accelerate time to market and take excess costs out of your business model. We’ll help you find the right embedded or data center technologies, but we don’t stop there. We can help with everything you need to bring your product to market anywhere in the world, from identifying the right technologies to supply chain management, integration, delivery and post-sales customer support. To ensure that you maximize your return on investment, our product development emphasizes durable, long-lived designs. Our deep understanding of technology road maps across the industry and available inventory programs is reflected in our development recommendations that can provide maximum business value to you over the long term.
Focusing on your core business
Along the path to product release, you’ll need to contend with a series of challenges that may fall beyond your core competencies, including:
- Designing the system: Technology trends and advances proceed rapidly in this digital age. We stay informed on the latest technologies to ensure that your product meets necessary technical, performance, lifecycle and pricing requirements. We can provide the insights and guidance that may not be available through your existing staff to enhance the design, functionality and lifespan of the end product.
- Creating a consistent manufacturing and integration process: To ensure a positive experience for your customers, we help develop a reliable, consistent manufacturing process that can be applied worldwide.
- Assembling, testing, and manufacturing the solution: This usually requires specialized equipment, facilities with necessary capabilities and expertise in the technologies used in the solution.
As you advance through custom design, engineering, testing and manufacturing, you may face delays and rising project costs if the expertise for any of these processes is lacking within your organization.
Entering new markets
You’ll face more complexity and expense if—and more realistically, when—you want to bring your solution to the global marketplace as you work to:
- Ensure security: Security requirements, such as the General Data Protection Regulation in the European Union, mandate strict data protection standards if you want to do business in that market.
- Meet regulatory and certification challenges: Different regions in the world and different industries present different regulations and certification standards that must be met if you want to do business in that region or market.
- Provide support: We offer support in instances where product issues or the need for repairs arises. Following product installation, we can build programs to provide direct support from Avnet when required, giving our customers a channel to better serve their customers.
- Deliver an exceptional customer experience: Customers expect solutions to work well over their product lifespans and if they don’t, mechanisms need to be in place to fix any problems.
Bringing software products to market
The challenges of bringing software products to market include:
- Profit margins: Software by itself usually carries a high profit margin, but the hardware portion of the solution can introduce a significant financial drag at a time when investors are looking for returns.
- Lacking expertise in hardware, software companies typically struggle with the steps needed to deploy and support data center appliances on a global basis and incur high investment expenses.
These and the other challenges discussed can be capably met by the offerings from Avnet Integrated Solutions.
