We were about to source our products directly from the manufacturer in China, as it seemed the cheapest path. Then we used Algopix to double check this, and saw the math on logistic costs and import taxes. Turns out that outsourcing from China would've cost us much more than we thought.
It was an eye-opening experience. We may not have been in business today if we hadn’t used Algopix to weigh the options! It gave us the insights we never could've afforded otherwise, as MBA grad analysts cost way too much for a company such as ours.
