How a design update increased sales by 17% for Monika…

Bringing your products in on budget.

With increasing competition from home and abroad, we were asked to refresh Monika’s existing temperature monitoring and data logging product range, which we had designed for them 10 years previously. Building on its time in the market, we gathered insights which enabled us to drive innovation into the product. The result was an up-to-date coherent design language, running across a range of seven base products which are cleaner, brighter, more hygienic and capable of withstanding the rigours and environmental conditions in the workplace.

One of the challenges of the design update was to meet the target manufacturing cost for the entire system. With clever design, we were able to engineer and optimise the range to meet these targets and deliver low-volume, high-value, quality products addressing the needs of the market. This was accomplished using a U.K. supply chain for tooling and production, which was time and cost-effective compared with off-shore manufacture.

With a new range of products, incorporating the latest temperature, data logging and wireless electronics, Monika were able to win major new contracts in the commercial market, including Asda and Wagamama – even supplying systems to the Houses of Parliament, and resulting in a 17% boost to sales.
