Introductions and Go Betweens:
One of our most valuable services is to help people in the industry meet and understand each other's capabilities and needs. If you are looking to add qualified staff who have established relationships with the key players in the industry, we can help you.
Cross Cultural Communications:
Buying, selling, or developing a light electric vehicle across international borders and cultural lines often requires help from an experienced neutral party that understands the issues of various cultures, and the technical details of the products and can be used as a sounding board, an impartial mediator, trouble shooter, or negotiator for all the parties involved in a project. This has actually been one of our most often used services - our multinational business and staff (we speak 8 languages and live in 5 countries) helps us to understand the problems and how to resolve them. Our experience often allows us to anticipate and avoid such problems.
Patent protection, violation and awareness:
There are many products in the world, and eCycleElectric tries to be aware of and informed about the entire scope of the world market in Light Electric Vehicles. Often we will be aware of prior art, patents in foreign countries, copies, or other IP or Patent issues. Our advice can save effort and expense. Our research can identify copies and patent violations. We can advise on what can, or cannot be done pragmatically. And we can help with negotiations to create profitable business relationships instead of patent fights and lawsuits.
Custom Research Projects:
eCycleElectric has researched motors, batteries, bicycles, Pedelecs, ebikes, scooters, control circuits, pricing, consumer needs and wants, dealer interests, quality, and many other issues in the USA, Europe, China, and Japan. Custom research reports are a normal part of our business, and are written on a fee basis.
eCycleElectric has helped many companies find distribution for product and usually works on a project based fee or retainer for this service.
