3Nice Match

Connecting Buyers with Suppliers
Nice Match is a proprietary service by which we match demand for specific projects to your available capacity, specific capabilities and technology, and ideal customer/project strategy. Under a signed agreement and defined facility analysis & sales funnel strategy, prospects with projects that are a close enough match are introduced directly.

Contract manufacturing is scientific but not always an exact science. It’s a delicate balance of available, appropriate capacity meeting the needs of innovators’ projects at the right time. It’s also about groups of people being comfortable working together, sharing philosophies and agreeing on the level of transparent communication and flexibility. Nice Match is supported by the 22 years of market knowledge of That’s Nice, 10 years of market intelligence captured through Nice Insight, and a continually growing network of contacts and customers.

After a signed agreement is executed, a working session with your top team is conducted to define and agree on your company’s ideal customer and project profile to best utilize your resources and expertise. Potential customers are then screened and introduced, so you are past the business development process and directly into project negotiations and due diligence.
