Do you have an idea, but you're not sure it will work?

Are you worried about the cost of finding out that it won't?

 We offer risk-free technology feasibility studies. If it can't be done, it won't cost you a penny. 

How Does It Work?

  • Contact us for a free discussion
  • We both sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) to protect your idea
  • Together we agree what needs doing and what success means to you
  • We agree a fee, only payable if we achieve that success

What Do I Get If It's Successful?

  • A working proof of concept
  • All design files and documentation from the study
  • Ownership of any intellectual property created
  • The option to engage us to file patents on your behalf where applicable
  • The option to engage us to develop your concept into a commercial product

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take on all types of projects?

image35

Our experienced multidisciplinary team cover a wide range of software and electronics skills  and we also have trusted partners we can call upon, but some projects may still be too specialised for us. If so, we will quickly identify this and let you know. If you wish, we can also collaborate with you, or your other suppliers.

Do you mind how risky it is?

image36

Yes and no! We're happy to consider all projects that we feel we have a chance of successfully delivering. We rank our projects by risk/reward ratio and prioritise them accordingly. The higher your project ranks, the sooner it is likely to be addressed.

So, when will my project be done?

image37

We can discuss likely timescales when you contact us, but we always make the following commitments...

1. There will be an agreed contract end date, after which you have no obligation to pay.

2. If we haven't started your project yet, you can cancel the contract at any time.

What if my idea isn't feasible?

image38

If our study finds that your idea isn't feasible, then we'll let you know and there's nothing to pay.

What if more research is needed?

image39

We may conclude that your idea is more complex than first thought, but could be possible with more research. If so...

1. You can walk away and pay nothing.

2. We can agree a fee for our findings and you can continue research yourself.

3. We can agree to extend the study.

Is my idea in safe hands?

image40

Your idea will be protected by our NDA, but moreover by our values and ethos. ITDev has been providing technology consultancy since 2000 and has worked on many sensitive projects for many clients. We're more than happy to put you in touch with our clients to discuss their experiences of working with us.

Example Projects

Button-Free Phones

image41

We helped one client to pioneer the touchscreen technology that enables the edge-to-edge screens found on the latest handsets. We created a proof of concept design to demonstrate how users could interact with a phone that has no buttons.

Drone Camera System

image42

In order to help a client prove and refine their new drone concept, we developed a low cost, multi-camera, wireless video system. The client is currently performing their own trials before providing us with their exact requirements for the production design.

Network Congestion Management

image43

We developed a device to prove a new algorithm that improves the user experience of broadband customers. Not only did this prove the client's concept, but also provided a demonstrator to show to internet service providers, who were the target customers for the technology.

Low-Latency Video

image44

We completed a feasibility study for a long-standing client to show how it would be possible to reduce the delay through their broadcast video equipment by a factor of 25. We went on to help them develop the product, which won a prestigious industry award.

Reducing Cash Machine Theft

image45

We helped another client to prove their concept of triggering an ink-based system within cash machines to make stolen cash worthless. We needed to get radio signals to pass through the solid metal walls of a cash machine. We proved it was possible by building a working prototype.

Counting With Video

image46

We developed a prototype system to test the accuracy and limitations of counting vehicles using a video camera. This same concept could also be applied to counting other objects. For example, we could count products on a shelf, items in a factory, etc.
