Invention Review

Our popular Invention Review provides inventors with a specific and technical breakdown of their idea. We analyse all aspects of the invention from design specifications to material selection, best manufacturing processes and marketing options. We offer this review to ensure inventors understand, not only their product, but also the realistic specific costs and steps to get their product to market. Invention Steps introduced this Inventions Review to reduce the risk of inventors over committing prior to understanding all costs involved, and to ensure efficient product development saving the inventor both time and money.

Invention Review FAQ

Why should I do an Invention Review?

The most important consideration at the beginning of any project is to understand the costs to get your idea into the commercilisation stages.

Presumably this is the first time you are looking to develop your product and no doubt the process can be a little daunting to say the least.

Invention Steps developed the Invention Review to help assist you in understanding all the stages and most importantly the costs to develop your particular idea, from start to finish.

Our aim is to mentor you through the entire process and by doing so we want you to be fully informed of the costs, from start to finish, so you can make an informative decision if you wish to proceed.

If we do the Invention Review with Invention Steps can we develop the product elsewhere?

Of course, our Invention Review is written in a way that ensures you understand all the costs and steps to develop your idea.

These costs and stages are industry standard giving you a perfect guideline moving forward with any design company.

How long will the Invention Review take?

The Invention Review process is a complex procedure that is written by industry experts who make up the team at Invention Steps.

This process typically takes 7-10 days but for more complex ideas this can extend to 14 days. We will update you regularly though the process.

Will Invention Steps offer suggestions for our Invention to improve on the idea?

Definitely, the aim of the Invention Review is to ensure you develop a product at the right price but also to develop a product to the highest standard using the best materials selection and most common manufacturing processes.

Our number one priority is to ensure you develop a "commercially friendly product", something that gives the wow factor and makes people want to by it.

Will you tell us what manufacturing processes we need to use?

Not only do we give you a breakdown of all the steps involved in the process (including manufacturing) we tell you how they are going to manufacture the items and what materials to use.

We keep all reviews as informative so our clients without any manufacturing experience can understand the process competely.

Should I patent my idea before Invention Review?

No it is not necessary, in fact one of the frequently asked questions is - At what stage should I patent my idea?

We cover all questions regarding patents, when to get them, how to go through the process, who to use, and much more.

Before you discuss the idea with us we sign a Privacy Agreement called a NDA which can be downloaded here.

Your ideas are reviewed with the strictest confidence in mind.

Why do no other Invention Development companies offer an Invention Review like this?

At Invention Steps we pride ourselves on helping Inventors.

If an Inventor chooses not to do a review and jump straight into the Patent and Product Development process, they often come across hurdles, which in most cases results in lack of funds.

Most companies choose not to do a 'Review' as it may point out too many cost hurdles and ultimately lose your business.

Invention Steps is here to help, not exploit inventors, and for this reason we developed the Invention Review.

Still unsure if the Invention Review is right for you, contact us and we will help point you in the right direction.
