Innovative, original thinking has always been integral to the design process, and it certainly is at 4D Products.
We work alongside other innovative businesses to design valuable new intellectual property. Our involvement in many projects across many industry sectors puts us in a great place to make new connections and take new approaches. So in much that we do, we are an innovation consultancy.
Much of the UKs governments funding for new product development is delivered through the Innovate UK, the government believe that the future of our economy lies in encouraging people and businesses to innovate, discover and protect new ways of doing things. Concentrate on high value activities. Apple Computers ‘Designed in California, made in China’ philosophy has seen them become the World’s most valuable company.
The Patent box and R&D tax credit schemes from HMRC reward businesses developing and selling their own patented technology with tax rebates and a significant reduction in corporation tax. Both are directly supporting UK based innovation.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
STEP 1 – Get in touch with 4D and explain your requirements. If you need us to sign a non disclosure agreement to protect your unique idea, that’s fine.
STEP 2 – When we understand what you need, we will create a written proposal which details each stage of the design process that we would recommend you undertake, how much this will cost, and how long it will take.
STEP 3 – You can commission us to deliver one stage at a time, so you remain in control of your budget.
STEP 4 – We work very hard to deliver work that exceeds your expectations and delivers value to your business.
STEP 5 – Any IP generated is wholly assigned to you when the work has been completed and paid for.
