Our Customer

Our First-Tier Suppliers (out of which You might be one) work on their customized products to deliver them as components to the OEM.

Due to the high complexity of the products, during the negotiation process, we are usually involved with several companies in order to achieve the most cost-effective product.

These sub-components suppliers are Second-Tier Suppliers for the OEM.

We are often conducting tests through external Test Houses, which we refer to as Product and Component Testers.

NEGOTIATION STEPS

We Provide You with Full Support for the Negotiation Phase of Your Project

Background support

We support You while negotiating your project with the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
We act as a team member of Your organisation, and we do not appear as another, separate company in front of the OEM.

Needed Second-Tier Suppliers

We support You to ensure the best supply for the OEM.

We arrange Your requests to the OEM in two different Categories:

A category which contains one job package which can be done by You as a First-Tier Supplier to the OEM. We double-check with You whether You have the essential capabilities for this job.

A category with several job packages which should be done by external companies as Second-Tier Suppliers to the OEM. This addresses the jobs for which you are lacking the required capabilities. We make sure that all the selected Second-Tier Suppliers have the required expertise for these jobs.

Analysis

We proceed joint to You to a technical analysis of your requests to the OEM customer, whether you act as a First-Tier Supplier to the OEM or not.
Our goal is to achieve a global view of the project in terms of development timing and engineering resources.
Our analysis is done in a brief delay, ranging from few days to a few weeks, depending on the complexity of Your Project. It is usually scheduled during the negotiation period, thus making sure all the participants are easy to reach and highly-responsive.

Needed Product and Component Testers

Similar to the need for Second-Tier Suppliers, we check the Need for External Product and Component Testers.
The External Product Testers will test the entire product in all respects.
The External Component Testers are responsible for testing the different components which build-up the product. They are usually related to or provided by the Second-Tier Suppliers.
The expertise of the External Product and Component Testers will be verified by our team.

Service Interface Agreement

We have been working on several projects with First-Tier Suppliers that needed to handle a Service Interface Agreement to their OEMs.
This is, in our opinion, the most important part of the quotation process.
The vast experience and in-depth knowledge of Clever Circuits in this area allow You to save money and get the best deal with Your OEM.

Need for Recruitment

From our experience, most of our customers are harbouring a small internal team for long-term engagements. For new projects, however, they usually need to enforce their team.
We can walk that way for You, too. We hire a well-known recruiter to present us engineers from their pool. We select the right experts for Your specific Project and build them into an external team, which is then ready to work jointly with Your internal team of specialists.

Financial estimation

While analysing Your requests to the OEM, we estimate the budget of the whole project according to both the internal and the external working packages.
We provide You with a real and fully-transparent calculation of the project costs, in order to determine the financial implications and needs of the project.
