How to choose the best electronics design consultancy

Book your first Ignys meeting

Electronics design consultancies can help provide you with a number of benefits. They save you time through resource boosts and provide access to expert knowledge. This knowledge can come in the form of domain experience and the ability to help you carry out product testing early on. Design consultants can help you plan ahead with design reviews, Design For Availability to tackle the global chip shortages and extend the lifecycle of your existing tech products.

Choosing the right electronics design partner doesn’t need to be scary. Make sure you get to meet them, virtually or otherwise, so you can see if they are an open and honest company who will provide you with the right level of communication. Ask them about their experience within your sector and check early on if your timescales are possible for them. It’s also worth checking if your principles align with theirs. If you believe in Innovation with a Heart, making the word a better place, without harming people or the environment then being associated with a company who takes on risky projects may harm your reputation.

Poppy Sinclair Sales Manager

You can get the most out of your first meeting with an electronics design partner by asking your chosen consultancy if you can learn more about the people working on your project. Ask them if your budget is realistic, you can do this in a way that doesn’t show all your cards whilst still getting honest feedback on whether you may need to source extra funding. It’s also a great idea to plan these meetings early otherwise you may find a good design consultancy are fully booked up and leave you disappointed. Lastly make sure you get the chance to speak about your project in detail and you aren’t left listening to their pitch about how great they are, without them listening to you.
