Vendor Identification

Our vendor identification service is designed to assist you in finding suitable suppliers for your specific product requirements and key criteria. Our team of experts and engineers follows a meticulous process to identify and evaluate potential vendors who can meet your needs and deliver the must-haves for your product.

The outcome of this service is a comprehensive report, which includes an overview of manufacturers that match your criteria. The report includes essential details like location, website, catalog, contact information, and company size. Typically, the report presents a number of potential manufacturers, depending on the complexity of finding suitable options.

During the vendor identification stage, there are no in-person visits to manufacturers, and negotiations have not yet begun. It is important to note that a vendor identification project is conducted per country and per product category. However, if a manufacturer offers multiple product categories, they can be combined within a single vendor identification project. Our comprehensive service encompasses the following process:

Collect product specifications and key requirements

Conduct market screening

Manufacturing list that meet criteria
