As an airline and traveling service provider, KLM wanted to develop an innovative product that resonates with every business traveler‘s family–a night light that counts down the days until the traveler is home again. KLM approached a design studio with this idea, so an unique electronics product design was created:
A small airplane-shaped lamp with a light shining trough each window for representing the days the traveler is away from home. One lighted window extinguishes every night, and when all of them are off, the traveler is home again. The sophisticated functionality stands out in comparison to other nightlights.
KLM doesn’t need to worry about product development, packaging, finding, communicating with, and making payments to suppliers. Instead, they can focus on their business’s core competency, such as providing airline services and offering corresponding merchandise, marketing, and others. Third party manufacturing solutions give the full flexibility needed.
Also An International-Renowned Airline Company Like KLM needs help setting up OEM production lines.
Although the night light is a relatively simple product, realization of the design at an affordable cost under consideration of good quality can be challenging. With Intrepid Sourcing’s help, KLM was able to find reliable suppliers so that they were able to have the night lights produced quickly by solely providing the design files, saving them time and costs.
