The Commercialization Process.
The commercialization process is not just a matter of identifying product requirements and engineering specifications. The very best product innovators communicate the product vision and its tale. Successful product launches focus on targeting customers and their problem(s). Product positioning should include website marketing, public relations, and advertising. Positioning should address unique compelling values and benefits provided by the product being launched.
Uriel develops unique product profiles offered to the public. These profiles should position the client product versus competing products in a way that shows buyers long term benefits compared to the competing products already in the marketplace. Many downstream problematic issues in engineering, manufacturing, marketing and product positioning can be avoided with the right up-front diligence. Uriel engages in the design process with a view to design a product with product positioning, public relations, and marketing in mind from the get go.
Startups might find controlling and monitoring the flow of ideas into a successful product launch to be intimidating. From concept, development, testing, to final deployment, Uriel’s staff implements agile development methods. Customer feedback is solicited throughout the entire development cycle.

Consulting Engagements that Enhance Innovation and Product Development Efforts.
Engaging with cients as an equity partner allows Uriel to fully engage its internal and alliance resources into a clients venture. Uriel excels in brainstorming to develop rich and unique products with intellectual property that are full of novel functionalities.
Uriel can develop technology or it can find and source products for clients. Through Uriel’s technology transfer operations, clients can acquire a license to pursue innovative products from Uriel’s Internal Development Efforts. Conversely, Uriel can find and source a license for innovative products from third parties. Uriel helps clients attain one or a portfolio of disruptive innovative products that they can further commercialize, manufacture and sell. In this manner, Uriel helps clients diversify into further related and non-related product lines of interest.
Uriel’s brainstorming methodology, using its alliances as a sounding board, can further enhance and expand a client’s patent portfolio. Brainstorming can bring forth a diverse array of unique concepts that can be incorporated into a client’s product.
Uriel’s methodologies allow a client to perfect designs and patents extending beyond a client’s original product concept. Uriel’s internal engineering operations are structured to enhance the original product design innovation process. This process brings about unique enhancements that can be incorporated into the product development life cycle.
Uriel engages in leading and managing brainstorming sessions to enhance client projects and diversification interests. Uriel’s focus is to enrich and empower its clients to add life and vision to a client’s diversification interests. Uriel helps clients with new-twist ideas to protect and refine their products. This is especially important when such concepts might still be in their infancy.
New products with new-twist functionality frequently are unrefined and leave many doors open for competition where companies can design around a client’s patents. New product concepts might not yet be refined to protect different variations of a concept that a competitor might take advantage of.
Uriel works to close this loop hole by coming up with a set of logical and technically feasible product variations. The aim is to develop variations that have a high degree of commercial viability. Uriel recommends that the best variations be further patented and protected. Trademarks are also important to protect product launches that a client might seek to monopolize.
As a primary design principle Uriel looks to develop and protect variations of products that a client might have never considered. Protecting variations can create new markets for clients. Uriel’s Design Variation Brainstorming Sessions are an essential part of the product development innovation process. Such sessions preserve and protect the life blood of new concept product opportunities that have disruptive new-twist functionalities.
Disruptive Product Innovation Focus.
Great product development starts with a unique product idea that has proprietary functional characteristics. Product development ends with a product that has been engineered and refined from one or more carefully crafted patents. Developing a portfolio of patents that protect the novel design and functional elements of a new-twist product concept is of great advantage. An expanded patent portfolio can serve as a stepping stone for a client to enter into the international marketplace with a greater global competitive advantage.

Uriel helps clients explore licensing of their ideas. A license can be sold to one or more existing product manufacturers, distributors, retailers, wholesalers, and sales organizations. Licensing gives clients an affordable and effective way to generate income off of idea(s) without footing the entire bill. With licensing, clients can avoid the costs of prototyping, manufacturing and marketing of their product concepts. This alternative allows clients to escape footing the bill. Licensing can eliminate the headache of trying to compete with existing manufacturers. This option further allows clients to partner with manufacturers, distributors, and other sales and marketing channels that would otherwise be a client’s competitor. Through licensing, a client can collect a paycheck in royalties when one or more licensees are engaged as part of a client’s product launch strategy.
To achieve greater commercialization success it helps to have management advisors that have extensive brainstorming experience. Focused brainstorming is an essential part of product design, engineering and commercialization. Uriel’s internal innovation expertise combined with the experience of its alliance partners gives Uriel clients a greater global competitive edge over competitors.

Uriel’s Visionary Leadership can help clients command and secure a substantial niche in billion dollar developing industries.
Eliminating Bureaucracy That Stifles Innovation.
Product innovation within a well-established product design company can be challenging. This is especially true where bureaucracy serves to stifle innovation and out-of-the-box thinking. Complicated development processes and procedures, corporate politics and policies, including competing priorities can hinder creativity. This usually serves to limit the development and acceptance of unique disruptive ideas. Smaller companies tend to be more successful as innovators where bureaucracy and competing priorities don’t create road-blocks to creativity and invention. One option for corporations that are struggling to innovate and gain a leading edge in product design and engineering is to outsource innovation to a product development consulting firm like the Uriel Corporation® Think Tank.
