Our first project which was on hold, the #RDOne is in the prototype stage again. A simpler low cost low power version of RDOne was already complete by March 2020.
After our launch of MicroUPS in June 2020, we had received feedback from customers and well-wishers. We also had our first experience on online platforms such as Amazon and Flipkart. From these valuable feedback and experiences, we have decided to move into a more premium segment. RDOne is thus updated to offer a more premium look and features. RDOne has also enhanced protections and almost everything better compared to current offerings in market.
#RD03 will be a modular version of the RDOne and will be intended at customers who want an economical and modular solution, with low financial investments. RD03 is currently in low volume production and will be available in market as a beta release for customers who would like to get hands on the product before the production line kicks in, hopefully by August first week. Beta version, will be available on our Web store initially, and depending on demand and request, possibly expanded to other online market places. Beta version will also be priced slightly less compared to the production model.
One of the main drawbacks of smaller companies not easily getting into the product phase in India is the delay encountered and the lack of proper ecosystem !
From my personal experience, compared to a place like Shenzen (China) where there are readily available stocks of components, and facilities, India lacks a proper ecosystem. In a proper ecosystem, it takes few hours to a few days for iterations and designs, whereas, for us, it takes at least a week for the components to arrive, and then a few more days for one iteration of design !
Also to be shared, is the reluctance of the vendors to deal with small orders, and also the lack of proper expertise in their fields, though they have been working in the field for years, or at least claim to be so. When placing a small order, especially for the prototypes, most vendors either charge you very high price, or may even not reply to your request as their margins are much lower on your order.
On an average, the probability of getting a positive reply is 1/5, and that of getting the item you searched for at an affordable rate may be about 1/10. So, to the people who are tired of trying, you should be tying harder !
We are sad to announce that the timeline of the first project RDOne will be extended to April 2019 for the production release. This delay is due to audit, taxes and related administrative regulations of the company. We will, be rolling out the prototypes in a few weeks and will be tested for about 1 month before being brought out for the initial release, which is expected to be in April 2019, the new financial year beginning.
We are taking in time so as to make the prototype model as close to the final production model as it can be. We expect the basic model to be ready in a few days.
The most common misconception that most corporate have is the idea that everyone can be replaced in a day ! I believe, from the country that I reside in, that employees tend to be exploited with this idea. In India, we had a huge exponential rise in the people who wanted to do engineering in the past few years.
Since the number of job seekers are significantly higher than the job opportunities, most people are ready to work even for a very low wage to earn experience or thinking that earning a bit is even better than earning nothing at all. This had resulted in undervalued work.
The corporate world always wants to get the maximum value of money that they pay for a person. They, in fact, do not bother about the person as a whole. The money and organisation is placed well above the humanitarian consideration. Corporate world often (mostly the people I have met) thinks that, replacing an employee is quite easy and does not impact the work, as the new person also has the same skill-set as the one being replaced.
When viewed from the other perspective, not all information and knowledge will be shared to the organisation by the individual. He might have missed things, or may be thought the information was not useful. The employee who had experience in the project, would be thereby, knowing a lot more, maybe even more specific information regarding the project than the senior or the manager as the work done is more at the lower ends of the organisation, when it comes to technical sections. Since the new comer would have no idea regarding this, he would either miss information or even if he does catch up, will spend a few days or months catching up depending on the depth of the project. Well, time is money.
Most people think that, hiring a new employee with lower salary and then completing the project was an achievement. It might be so, or maybe it seemed so. Maybe the old employee, who had to be paid more, would have helped you complete the work much earlier, with an improved set of features. No one can be sure, but then not everyone fits in !
We are glad to announce the introduction of ‘Knowledge centers’. When we were working on our android project, we came across a few obstacles in coding. Apart from the normal coding practices and logic, we came across a few libraries and repositories which could be of help.
Knowledge center was selected on the basis of polls in our Facebook Group –https://www.facebook.com/groups/regaldreamtech/ where most people chose that the knowledge and lessons learnt are to be made available for the people who follow us.
We will soon be introducing the Knowledge Center on our home page. This will be in the blog, but categorized separately, with home page featuring the link to the knowledge center.
Knowledge center may be found at https://www.regaldreamtech.com/knowledge-center/
Thank you for following us closely and wishing us success, though we were just starting up in the year 2018. The year has been not so eventful when it comes to the company and its product launches. We managed to register our company in India, in November 2018. And since then, we have been striving hard to bring in products for the people.
We thank you for following and encouraging us throughout the year, since our registration and beginning thereby. We hope that we would deliver products, in 2019, and we guarantee this as well. Your presence has kept our hopes alive, and we make a new years wish to grow up to the expectations.
We, the team, wish you all a Happy New Year 2019 ! May this year bring us all, the fortunes and luck that we wish for !
