Sofeast is not what they call a ‘sourcing agent.’

We are a full-service product engineering, manufacturing, quality assurance, and supply chain management provider based in China. We also cover 6 other Asian countries with our solutions.

Sofeast’s systems and capabilities, and how they benefit you

Using our decades of cumulative experience, we have implemented mature and effective systems and capabilities that differentiate us from other service providers.

Here are the five main strands of our business that our clients can choose to work with us on, and their respective systems, capabilities, and benefits.

human resources

Human Resources

We have an in-house Harrison assessments certified user. This very advanced solution uses predictive analytics (for on-the-job performance). We use it for talent acquisition and for leadership development.

How this benefits you…

Matching the right people with the right roles, based on their preferred behavioral traits, makes for more engaged teams and better morale. In turn, motivated and right-fit people are a great basis for well-done work and great client service.

quality assurance solutions

Quality Assurance

We have a dedicated team, an IT platform that was developed to support and digitize our quality inspection process, and also hold ISO 9001:2015 accreditation from a tier-1 body (British Standards Institute).

How this benefits you…

The last thing you want, when it comes to quality assurance, is bad surprises. Pre-defined and repeatable processes ensure that our findings and our reporting can be trusted for making decisions. And a digitized process allows for near-real-time communication.

supply chain management

Supply Chain Management

We hold a Chinese import/export license, can apply for and manage VAT rebates, and provide you with the ability to pay suppliers in RMB (which many mainland companies strongly prefer).

How this benefits you…

Avoid the smokes & mirrors that many suppliers like to put up for you. Have visibility into your product’s bill of materials (component suppliers, prices…). Enjoy greater control over your own supply chain and drive improvements as needed.

new product introduction in China

Product Engineering

We employ 1 Industrial designer, 4 Mechanical engineers, 1 Electrical engineer, and 2 Electronic engineers on staff who are ready to make your product ideas reality. They mainly work on design for manufacturing and prototyping iterations.

How this benefits you…

Most horror stories related to new product development come up when that development work is managed by the Chinese supplier. You need an engineering team to complement the factory’s skills and to ensure an appropriate NPI process is followed from start to finish.

process engineering solutions

Process engineering

A good NPI process necessitates good engineering as well as good communication of all parties (components suppliers, production…). We employ a dedicated NPI manager and several process & quality engineers.

How this benefits you...

For productions of a certain size, we follow many of the tried-and-true tools and approaches followed by best-in-class companies such as Toyota and Apple. They make new products in high volumes with very few defects and while keeping costs in control.

contract manufacturing solutions

Manufacturing

We have our own manufacturing facility in China which specialises in small assembly runs and fulfilment. We placed a focus on reliability (with tools from the auto industry) and speed (cellular manufacturing setup) from the start.

How this benefits you…

South China’s deep network of component suppliers allows us to receive parts and work on prototypes or small runs much faster. With some projects that are too immature, getting a Chinese manufacturer motivated is difficult. We help you move to the next step.
