Our R&D services for SME's

When launching a new SME enterprise many entrepreneurs often face the conundrum of either keeping their highly valuable R&D resources in house or alternatively, outsourcing the same?

While the idea of keeping all R&D related activities in house is pretty alluring, but nevertheless it can stifle growth since the resources of a new SME enterprise may be limited at best. But the inherent fear of losing valuable research and the resources required in the development of new products and services to competitors makes many SME's fear the concept of outsourcing their research and development related activities to outsiders

However, that is not really the case since many such highly reliable R&D service providers exist today, in the market in just about all the countries of the world and most them have some really great and proven track records in their respective fields. Nevertheless, while some business enterprises ‘may’ be willing to development only suppliers so as to divest their assembly lines of certain components, but they remain uncertain with regard to outsourcing their whole research altogether.

Exploring R&D outsourcing opportunities: The ZLAB way

One of our most effective and proven techniques is to commence our operations with a core/non-core analysis of all the elements that determine the utility of a given product. Basically, we will take the products currently under production and methodically analyze all their elements so as to be able to determine if the activities that take place during its development, are of primary importance to the overall business and the achievements of its objectives

Business operations

We will conduct our research even if the sum total of such R&D activities were to be kept strictly kept indigenous to the organization only. We believe that this is a really great approach so as to clearly understand and elucidate the seminal importance of each and every stage of the product’s development as well as the main tasks associated with the same

On this basis of this analysis, we will help determine if it is required that different parts of a product or indeed the entire product itself may be safely passed on to the suppliers for both development as well as maintenance of the same. Here we try and maintain a certain degree of flexibility with regard to assembly lines. So, that in future due to any reason (new product development or budgetary constraints for instance) the enterprise will be ready and in a position to take charge once again and increase its overall development productivity

Process innovation

From the SME or small and medium enterprises perspective there is another way of tacking R&D related issues since almost all SMEs tend to pursue highly focused and niche oriented strategies they tend to be relatively successful in their cumulative endeavors.

Here, it may make sound marketing and financial sense to focus only core competencies, but too much reliance and focus on the same may mean that the enterprise may well end up missing some highly important technological developments in their respective industry. However, outsourcing their main competencies to the proven experts in the field may mean that that not only could they derive benefit from the latest developments in their respective field but also simultaneously increase both their market as well as customer base to a large extent.

Moreover, they will also be in regular touch with other firms and experts so that they would remain abreast of all the latest innovations in their field and are able to take advantage of the same before many of their more conservative competitors

The importance of outsourcing R&D services

All business enterprises ‘need’ to realize and understand the importance of focusing their resources in the right direction so that they can easily manage to stay competitive in a VUCA environment where all variables may be considered “volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.”

Excessive time and resources being spent on R&D
