Original review: Nov. 14, 2018

My experience working with Joseph ** has been wonderful. I interviewed around 7 different invention companies, but chose Davison because Joseph is honest and doesn't placate the client. People are usually very emotionally attached to their invention ideas, so it would be easy to flatter them and present unrealistic expectations. Also, Davison was the only company that included the disclaimers that are required by law. Of the seven companies, Davison is not the cheapest, but their not the most expensive.

Plus, they're completely turnkey in that they offer everything: concept development, CAD drawings, patenting, prototype design and manufacturing, proof of concept testing, production of manufactured samples, creation of marketing materials, outreach to companies for licensing or sales, finding the right manufacturing companies if the client doesn't want to license the product, etc. They've been in business longer than any of the others and have strong connections with the big retail outlets. I can't wait for the adventure to unfold as both Davison and I reap the financial rewards of success. I have several other ideas I want to develop in the future, so a strong relationship with Davison/Joseph is very important to me. As we walk this exciting road together, Davison will feel like a part of my family. Joseph, send me your adoption papers!

I have to say thus far 1 1/2 yrs working with Jason ** has been an amazing experience. Jason believed in my idea from day one. Always gave me a positive look on my product. Reassured me when I was feeling scared. Living on a fixed income with no job it was very scary. But Davison allowed me to pay as I could. I never really could afford it but I believe in my product to the fullest that I was not going to let that stop me. And now that Jason has handed me over to the next process I am and will always be grateful to Jason and Davison for this life experiences. Thank you and so looking forward to continue this family relationships.

I have found this company, through Joe **, to be dedicated, efficient, knowledgeable and fair. He is always interested in what I have to say, relevant or not. I know that he has MY best interest in heart. I am so lucky to have met Joe and Davison as it gives me a sense of security in my current venture. I would recommend this company to anyone seeking to bring their idea to market. After all, it does little good to never share your idea. That is selfish and self-defeating. If you can better the lives of others, such as customers, Davison's and yours, why not? There's plenty of profit to go round after a moderate amount of work by the right team, and I feel that I have found the RIGHT AND REPUTABLE TEAM, for which I was searching. I am very lucky to have stumbled onto to Davison!

Original review: Nov. 5, 2018

My experience with Davison was very impressive and through them I felt that there was great hope that my thoughts would be realized and become projects, products or commodities that all diamonds around the world would be interested in. Here I would like to point out a very important point: I was confirmed by my direct interaction with the new project manager, Mr. Mohamed **, who was and continues to follow me and communicate with me and interested in every big point or small in an effort to promote the idea to become a project or product unique and unique.

One of the most important advantages to deal with Mr. Mohammed ** for me personally is that he is nice, creative, persevering and educated and has the experience to ensure that he acts professionally, and although the success of the project will return the owner of the idea moral and material output, but added to the history of the achievements of Davidson. Through my interaction with Davison and my personal experience, I have the assurance that we will make miracles if we can hold on to each other's hands very well. But let me point out some important remarks. I have a hard time when I need to communicate with Mr. Mohammed ** when I call him. The employee of the PBX takes a time that I feel is relatively long to answer the phone and there may be a lot of communication.

To be addressed to address the problem, and then turn the connection and the call back to the PBX automatically to be followed by the employee of the divider again, but had to contact several times to no avail, so it is suggested to activate the return of the call to the employee of the division in case not answered by the employee concerned.

And the second observation Which is very important is the need to communicate with the customer by written messages for each stage or step or decision, and this is right because the link and the relationship between the company and the client is the signing of an agreement containing conditions, so I would like to say that the closure of the file of my first project which the company expressed its inability of the follow-up and service, because the project provided by Davidson did not do such a type and size of a large global project, which required that Davidson obtain special licenses, and it is here to remind you of the name of the project (Tripil S). Therefore, I hope that the administration will take a serious interest because such topics are an opportunity to raise the company and its prosperity and the breadth of its experience and the efficiency of its reputation to continue with some grow and succeed and excel and shine.

I have been working with Brandon 99 and he is doing an amazing job of explaining to me what the process is and what steps are taking place to make my idea a reality. He is great about contacting me when I need him to and has made this process a great experience. He's upbeat, helps keep me focused on the steps right in front of me, and makes sure I have what I need to know about Davison as a whole. I am so glad that he and I get to work together. The process Davison has as a whole make me very excited that my idea can become a reality and that I will have guidance to fulfill my goals. The fees are reasonable, the help is such a blessing, and overall my whole experience has been a very positive one so far. Would definitely recommend.

Run. Do NOT trust Davison. They ripped me off $12,000. I took a tour of Davison Inventions and they would NOT let me see the progress of my prototype. They proceeded to explain how employees go into each “themed room” and hangout to get creative and visualize what can be the next big invention. Ugh, red flags! Why are the employees trying to think of inventions when my prototype took almost 3 full years to be finished??? It was denied 3 times and each time they want almost $400 to submit to the next company. I asked for them to send my prototype and when they did it was packaged very well, but it didn’t work. They claim it broke while shipping. There’s no way that is possible. I took a video of us opening it up and the amount of bubble wrap around it too.

All of these positive reviews on here is because after a few months of being with the company and paying money towards your invention they ask for a review. Ugh, I fell for it being only a few months in. I REGRET giving them a good review. I was being hopeful and sending out positive energy only for it to backfire and lose $12,000. They can NOT be trusted.

This company all they do is take your money..0.001% out of 10,000 people may have their product in store. 1) So if you have 10,000 people pay $785 dollars just to start then this is how much they made 7,775,000 dollars. 2) And if you have 10,000 people pay to do the Second step which is $10,000 then this how much They made $100,000,000 (so you see this is a scam!!).

Hi there. Have called 3 other invention companies before Davison took interest. My invention idea has been handed though 3 specialist within the last year in a half, so far. The experience I have to say has not been pleasant, the specialist I'm currently working with has lied to me 3 times and does not seem very interested, but yet still is holding on to my idea? I really dont know where this idea will go?

Davison are still ripping people off. You are a mug if you send them money and your invention. What's stopping them saying your idea good idea and making it them selfs. They are smooth talker. I lost my money. They are con merchant. I lost 10 thousands + dollars. Be warned.

Hi my wife and I called Davison with an idea and had no money. David ** has been working with us for almost a year making payments and giving us a chance to get our invention out there. What a great guy and awesome company. They will help you get your idea wherever you need it to go. We recommend Davison Inventions to everyone that needs help with their inventions. Thank You, David ** & Krystal **.

Pleasant interaction; however, I have insufficient data at this time to ascertain whether anything will transpire. Enjoyed the videos, the CBS information, and the concept of Inventionland. However, I still have insufficient data to determine how it will affect me specifically.

So far it has been a terrific company to work with. I'm new to this, yet Mike has walked me throughout the programme. I'm delighted to have chosen the Davison group. I contacted other companies in this field, when comparing each one, it was the Davison hands down.

My initial contact, David **, was very helpful in explaining the process. David was enthusiastic about my project and helped to raise my hopes that we [could] be successful. Today's scheduled meeting with my assigned VP, Jeffrey Sawyer was more boilerplate and not what I expected. However, I am looking forward to our phone meeting next Monday where I'm hopeful that more information about my specific project will be discussed.
