Commitment To Precise Execution

That’s why Clever’s commitment to quality is built around addressing the specified, and often unique, requirements of each project. It’s Clever’s singular focus throughout every aspect of the development process—so clients can expect the highest level of quality and precision. Clever deploys top end quality assurance, empowered team-members, ISO Certification engineering and constant review feedback loops.

Quality Statement: The policy of Clever is to provide our customers and partners with products that meet, or exceed, their requirements and those recognized standards and to continually improve the effectiveness of our quality management system. Clever accomplishes this by adhering to procedures and establishing objectives that recognize customer satisfaction as the primary goal.
THE PROJECT PROCESS:
This is where we begin our collaboration with the client to assess project needs on a high level. We’ll establish project type, the general capabilities needed, review existing drawings and often have our engineers work directly with the client to add valuable manufacturing insights to the front-end design and strategy.
There’s no such thing as a “solo” project at The Team. Here, we meet with the client and the project leads, usually including a manufacturing engineer, program director and senior team leaders. It’s how customers get a sense of who is working on the project, and how The Team can begin to develop a plan moving forward.
You can’t meet your goals if you don’t set them. Here, The Team establishes detailed expectations with clients and creates an in-depth internal plan to help meet them. By taking an extremely detailed approach to the planning phase, many of our overall project plans result in 50 to 100 steps, sometimes more. Not only does this provide a meticulously planned road map to lining out all the resources needed to finish a project, but it also creates a system to track project status with precision along the way.
Deployment & Execution
When it comes to successful deployment, preparation is key. So we always start this phase by sending approved and finalized drawings to one of our programmers who will prep the schematics for actual operations processes. Next, we send the plans to one of our in-house facilities bringing the customer’s vision to life through precision execution.
We know there’s a lot at stake on every project, and our customers want to know what’s happening at each phase. That’s why we’re committed to maintaining transparency with our clients throughout the entire manufacturing process. In addition to routine status updates and collaborative web repositories, our customers often receive phone calls, emails and even photos showing progress on their specific projects.
Inspection and Delivery
At The Team, we help ensure your project meets expectations for quality and performance through a five-point inspection system carried out by our dedicated team of quality assurance experts. Once the product, service or program is inspected and approved, The Team offers pick-up and delivery services to get you what you need in the specific manner your job requires.
The Team’s project management services help ensure efficiency, optimized procedures and a level of involvement you won’t find anywhere else. We see every step of an The Team project as an opportunity to produce the best effort possible. So we count on our trained project management staff to ensure customers get the most value from our proven expertise at each phase in the process. Our consultative approach allows us to gain an in-depth understanding of customer needs and make recommendations that not only help meet them—but do so to ensure the highest level of optimization throughout the project.
