Today we had a successful meeting with a very important client and we impressed the BLEEP out of them. We displayed over 7 different prototypes for this New York-based client, and the feedback is fantastic. All the planning and building up to this 45 minute meeting was well worth it.
Chris Hartswick, Ideoli's Co-Founder and CPO, elaborates, "I think it was great. You know a lot of times we spend so much effort on - obviously the product - but the details of: how are we going to package it, what are we going to show them, what is the room going to be like, there's is a lot of guessing we have to do. But when it all comes together and we're able to have such a successful meeting like that, it feels good. It's exciting."
Being able to get in front of the client and discuss the details with them in person gives us a chance to understand them better, and vice versa. We understand their needs, their construction needs, their schedules and what their plans will be for the next 6-12 months. This puts it all into perspective, it shows us what we're all trying to do.
So, what are the next steps? George Stroumboulis, Co-Founder and CEO, explains, "Next steps are essentially rolling into full production on several of these projects which is always the goal. So from start to finish, we’re looking at 65-days when we were first engaged on this portfolio of products. This just shows our capabilities and how quickly we can turn things around from concept to installation."
Chris also notes just getting the meeting together is as important as anything else. Being able to get everyone on the same page, from us to the design team to the client, everything is now straightforward. He says, "...we all know what’s to be done and what’s coming up. There is a weight off everyone’s shoulders. That is important."
Following these meetings, the customer is now extremely confident in our capabilities, the quality of our product, and the timing of our production. This is how Ideoli continues to impress and make it's mark on the industry. Gotta love a successful meeting, and just like that, we're off to our next!
