New Product Introductions

A methodical approach to identifying, verifying and qualifying potential new suppliers based on 20+ years of experience of understanding China’s manufacturing clusters by industry and applying our Sourcing Funnel (link) to find best in class fit based on clients’ certifications, materials, and quality standards.

Process Improvement

Many clients have invested a few years of working with a specific factory or supplier yet not achieving desired results. Whether ongoing quality concerns, continued missed deadlines, lack of urgency and overall communication challenges, we can generally get to root cause issues and implement CPIs for immediate results.

Supplier Due Diligence

Whether a new or existing factory there is no substitute for on-site audits to confirm experience, assets (plant, property & equipment), staffing and a commitment by ownership and management to meet client needs.

factory-turnarounds-dark

Factory Turnarounds

Clients have invested time, capital and learning curve to developing a factory and often time it makes most sense to continue working with a supplier who seems to be committed yet falling short of expectations. Our team brings three decades of manufacturing and process expertise to the table. By quantifying to factory owners how they can become more profitable and even grow their business we gain the trust of owners and managers in a non-threatening approach that becomes a win-win.

Quality Audit & Pre-Shipment Inspection

“You can’t inspect quality into finished goods” is part of our vernacular. By establishing a Quality Assurance (QA) program on the front end, suppliers can avoid Quality Control (QC) challenges that lead to increased costs for them and substantial financial exposure for the client.

vendor-management-dark

Vendor Management

Our clients have hundreds of thousands of products moving through their supply chains. In many cases multiple factories are producing parts for a single finished product. With deadlines being critical to any business we provide daily visibility via a single dashboard using Smartsheets which are populated and maintained by our team. Highlighted are any variances to originally scheduled production and ship dates so clients are in the know in real time.

I've known David since 1993. David is high integrity and hard working in every undertaking.  I've worked with Baysource on several outsourcing initiatives through the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG). They know this market very well and have become an important resource for me as I evaluate investment opportunities and cost saving opportunities in Asia.

We hired Baysource during our transitioning phase to outsource our manufacturing. Their adaptiveness to the economic conditions surrounding our industry and customers as well as keen eye to detail were superb. David Alexander is one individual who can step right into any situation and see the forest through the trees. He's a systemic thinker, visionary, focused, personable and results driven. I would recommend Baysource without reservation.
