Business Needs

The client was looking to expand their bathroom product manufacturing capacity by placing and winning more bids. Owing to our long collaboration and in-depth knowledge of their product design, they wanted to extend the scope of services from mere design drafting to calculating material estimates as well.

Challenges

  • Erroneous and lengthy estimation process kept the client from placing more bids and business growth was stuck
  • Identifying and finalizing the product hardware depending on the type of product and its dimensions
  • Develop a finished schedule, door schedule, and hardware schedule as per the timelines

Our Solutions & Approach
