Technology Scouting

Adopt new technologies to survive and thrive by enabling new products or improving current processes.

Technology solutions can solve manufacturers’ most difficult new product challenges or manufacturing problems. The problem is finding optimal solutions without trained professionals on staff to perform the search.

Technology Scouting goes beyond normal channels to provide a far-reaching perspective of existing solutions to solve technology problems. With this rigorous, systematic approach, Technology Scouting taps into existing, but unknown, sources of information to find solutions that can save your company time, money, and frustration.

Tech Scouting Research

Searches proactively for solutions using specific criteria that are tailored to your company’s unique needs

Focuses on the ability to find non-obvious solutions to difficult technology problems facing small and mid-sized manufacturers

Brings new insight and awareness from outside core industries and experts in related fields

Explores areas not easily accessed directly, including government laboratories, universities and private sector sources
