The company has helped establish innovative enterprises, and helped them achieve brand differentiation.
The output value of Taiwan's service industry has reached over 73% of its GDP. However, services, like products, require innovation to better meet the needs of consumers. However, how to develop innovation opportunities in intangible services? In response, we adopt the "Product Service Design" method – instead of focusing only on product innovation and design, we emphasize that all products and services should be viewed with a creative orientation. We think of the method as a kind of commercial interaction design theory. Product service design is a new way to design experience, as it can redefine the touch point with customers and create new value for the service industry.
The design team of Michael Vinson International, enabled by the Product Service Design method, will achieve the following benefits for its clients:
-Through complete case study of consumers’ actual behavior, we implement consumer-oriented innovation, guarantee competitive advantages, provide customer differentiated services, propose unique selling points, and add value to product research and development.
-Improving market success rate: We systematically incorporate market and customer experience perspectives to ensure success.
-Shortening Time-to-Market for new service products: We shorten the development time of new service products by accelerating the Time-to-Market.
-Reducing product and service R&D costs and failure rates.
