Dean Compoginis
CEO
Bittel Americas

I found that my experience in working with ZIP exceeded my expectations in every way. They always seemed to be able to anticipate the direction I was headed with my concept, and were able to efficiently transform my ideas into a real design that became an award-winning product and a true innovation in the hotel industry. Our design is beautiful, user-friendly and, most importantly, selling like ice cream in July!

We hired ZIP to help us explore a significant healthcare opportunity aimed at limiting the spread of hospital acquired infections. ZIP did an excellent job researching the challenging hospital environment and developing a set of insights and frameworks to focus our corresponding technology and business research. In addition to design issues, Larry's strategic input into how to structure the project as a whole from a systemic and pragmatic perspective has added significant value to our effort.

We presented Zip with a tough problem, and engineering challenge to improve an existing product. The restrictions on what could be changed and what couldn't would have given anyone hesitation, but ZIP quickly got to a solution. The design team further refined and developed the solution and wowed us with the final result. We now have a new product that is far superior to our previous product, and they went further and made the design capable of upgrading our older products.

Zip was responsible for refining the ID and developing the mechanical design of a Apple iPad accessory product. The ZIP team brought deep experience that we lacked, and at every critical design decision provided a thoroughly investigated set of trade offs to consider. Most of all I appreciate the team's approach to designing a high quality product, and their integrity and commitment to a challenging schedule.
