Do Factory Audit
Auditing Vietnamese companies is a major challenge to most importers, especially startups or petit businesses. Most manufactories in Vietnam are still growing, so it is a risky venture to embark on sourcing a product without full knowledge of a supplier’s capacity. In fact, an ISO 9000 certification alone is not enough. There are many other additional factors to consider when dealing with your potential supplier. It is an involving task that may prove cumbersome to foreigners. The process involves so many aspects such as the ‘’VERIFIABLE’’ situation of the supplier, communication, cooperation, productivity, etc. You don’t want to dare this from a long distance, we fit in here so well
Many factories in Vietnam hire sales representatives who speak English, even though this eases communication with businesses or importers, it doesn’t guarantee better deals/pricing. Our aim isn’t just to represent you with the language, but we also contact the right person within the factory who has an upper hand in pricing decisions. Meaning, whether they speak English or Vietnamese, they are the right people who offer the best market price. In other words, We speak with the elites within the factory such as a lead engineer or the owner. Even if they do not understand or speak English, they are the key people who determine the real price of the products. With this approach, it will be easier to fix all your product sourcing problems. Cherubim Business Group, a venture with Vietnamese employees, has years of experience in negotiating with the nobles in the factory. Our mediations are tailored towards the customer needs, financial capability and satisfaction unlike most factories that strive to favor their own businesses.
Some OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) clients decide to or source products directly from manufactories. From a layman’s point of view it looks appealing given that they have direct contact with factories and won’t have to go through a third party. In their quest to get closer to manufactories, others have set up oversea office. It looks like a wise decision but it will definitely not turn out well when there is a breach of contract or disputes regarding supplies. These situations usually, arise due to cultural differences and at times language barrier. Moreover, as a foreigner or foreign business, there is a high chance that you will pay more for the products, besides wasting your valuable time.. This is why you need a combine team of experts from your part of the world and this part of the world, whom together have a mastery of Vietnam’s business climate. Cherubim Business Group will assist you in every aspect of this process, be it during the production process or protecting your business.
Because, we take pride in customer service, quality and delivery, we consider quality control as an integral part in the product sourcing process. Here is why? Finding a supplier alone is just the first step. That is, after receiving, inspecting and paying for the sample; the factory or supplier will begin the bulk production. During the bulk production process, quality inspection and control are key aspects that you must monitor very closely. In case of any defects, the factory will be responsible for such mistakes. Substandard or low quality products will make your business lose potential customers. This is because customers will neither get value for their money nor receive goods in time. At Cherubim Business Group, our ‘’QC’’ inspection team will visit the factory during the production process. The team takes photos, record possible problems and update customers on the conditions of the goods. This eliminates possible mistakes or unnecessary delays that may occur during the production process.
Assemble Custom Documents
This is one of the most complex aspect of sourcing goods as a foreign company or business why, because you will be dealing with a country which has its own custom rules. At times, custom clearance, tax duty or HS code may cause delays. From our observations, many companies who lack the wit and understanding in dealing with Vietnam customs end up paying almost double for custom clearance . Working with Cherubim Business Group implies that our professional team will handle all the paperwork on your behalf thanks to our insider contacts. We ensure all your goods are cleared in time.
