Frequently Asked Questions
How long has Indonesian-sourcing.com been sourcing and arranging manufacture in Indonesia?
Indonesian-sourcing.com has provided Asian sourcing and arranged contract manufacturing since early 2002.
What types of products do you source?
We source all manner of consumer products for individuals and companies, but specialize in fashion, decorational items and furnitures. Indonesian-sourcing.com's sourcing system lends itself well to all types of consumer goods requiring Asian manufacture.
Do you source for anyone who requests your services?
We provide all services to companies, agents, individuals or start-ups.
Why should you choose Indonesian-sourcing.com over other sourcing agents?
Attention to detail, experience living and working in Asia, timely communications, knowledge of the "Asian way," and a wealth of Indonesian manufacturing contacts are our strengths. We work quickly and efficiently and are available 7 days per week to discuss any aspect of your project.
Can't we secure our own contract manufacturing?
That is possible, but sourcing in Indonesia presents serious risks for the uninitiated. In addition to language and cultural issues, you must be prepared to manage pricing and program negotiations, independent goods inspection, freight forwarder and broker selection, customs classifications and intensive exams, and many other technicalities. As agents specializing in sourcing Indonesia, we field these issues for your company, saving you valuable time and money.
How does indonesian-sourcing.com protect our intellectual property?
Selecting the right vendor is critical in preventing theft of your designs and trademarks. Using Sourcing Exotic Indonesia for sourcing in Indonesia assures that the vendor of choice follows our business ethics. We have a series of checks and balances in place to minimize the likelihood of problems and, further, we scrutinize potential vendors very carefully prior to selection. We do not release any more information than is necessary during the vendor qualification process, never releasing information to any vendor without your expressed written permission. While not a panacea, we do secure non-disclosure agreements with vendors, partly as a tool to let them know that we are serious about the security of your valued information.
How do we know we're getting the best price?
Low price is only one third of the equation. You also need high product quality and consistent on-time delivery. Frankly, the last two are as important as the first and far more difficult to achieve. Sourcing Exotic Indonesia will ensure that all three Asian sourcing goals are achieved: a high quality product, timely delivery and a purchase price assuring equitable returns for you and your new Asian manufacturing partner.
How can we be assured of a high quality product?
When sourcing products in Asia one of the main concerns for the procurer is quality. With so many sourcing companies and suppliers in the market, it can be difficult to judge who to use, and more importantly, who to trust. To address this concern, indonesian-sourcing.com utilises an in-depth quality control system to ensure that all products sourced are of the highest standards and meet the expectations of every client. We are committed to ensuring that no customer ever has to compromise on quality. Indonesian-sourcing.com has specialist local and international quality controllers in the factories at all times to ensure that client orders are on time and to specification. We pride ourselves on our seven year track record of consistently delivering high quality products to clients, on time, every time
