So far the process is evolving, from an idea in my head to an APP idea on paper. Lots of work ahead, so I hope that's going to be also challenging, is making this successful for all mobile users, and drivers which are going to be our customers.

I can’t complain with what I have already experienced. My idea is barely getting started... all the info given to me is pretty straightforward so far. Nathan has called every time. He says he will. I hope I made the right choice in company to launch my idea and I hope they answer all my questions.

It has been a long slow process for me to get this dream to become a reality. Without your friendly, professional and patient staff from Ashley **, David **, and Brandon **. I would have gave up a long time ago!

Misleading, Dissatisfied and a waste of money. They wanted a lot of money to get my invention marketed while stating not guaranteed to get a successful outcome. Overall people, seek legal advice first, before being naive like I was and basically donating to deep pocket crooks. I did not give any more money once I found out that investing more money that there was no guarantee in return to any potential profit.

I would most definitely recommend this company to people who has inventing dreams as I do. This is a blessing to me and I'm so thankful they gave me a chance and believed in me. They don't just give you a chance they push you to believe in yourself and for that I will forever be grateful for them.

Milk Teeth Souvenir Project - So far my experience is great and making me more excited about seeing the final outcome. I have to admit that the project assigned to my project gave me more confidence in Davison. Bear in mind that we still have more to go.

Low watt distribution - This system uses a WiFi based platform to supply power to any devices that is compatible to the system by using a similar password to access the service just like how we access the internet at your home. Also the frequency should be adjustable depending on the size of the item or how much power it needs.

Starting the process was scary. I hesitated, procrastinated, and doubted myself and the company as well due to reading so many negative reviews. However, I now feel very confident and am happy that I finally decided to move forward. Thanks Katelynn **.

It has been awesome working with Davison. Everyone has been very positive in moving things forward to bring my idea to life. I have enjoyed thus far working with Patty and her team. She has been very inspiring to me. She has made me feel so special and very much a part of the team.

My experience has been two part, one education about the process for me and how the partnership can work and two friendship. I haven't had contact with the other members of Davison but through Mike, I feel I know them as acquaintances. Needless to say after that statement my Davison experience has been great and well supported with a goal of getting my product to market. I would highly recommend this company for all inventors that don't have the knowledge to get their idea to the world.

Davison reached out and called me in my cell phone last summer in 2017 and asked me if I had any ideas for inventions. After that moment I started to have idea after idea and submitted the ideas to Davison to see if we can come up with a new product that would sell. The first product was called Mototubes I designed. They are intertube sleds for kids and families. The second one we are working on is PDA Police Force iPads. An overall scheduling and iPad with the police force database on it as well as other apps installed in it that the police use. For example it will have a thumbprint decoder on the bottom right corner to identify anyone with fake ids etc.

I feel this company is a great company to work with and they also stay on top of all information and make sure that they have the most up to date information at all times. They are very thorough and keep the greatest communication with the customer so that if there is any changes or updates occur they will know.

I spoke with Jason and John. I must say they both provided me with not only satisfactory but amazing customer service. They’re easy to talk to and they’re approachable. I’m glad they took care of me when I needed all of my questions answered and doubts cleared. I hope my journey with Davison continues to be one of growth and success! Thanks.

I never expected to submit my idea. It was only by chance that I even found Davison. I'm sure there are thousands of people like me that had some idea but with no way to start the kind of work that Davison does for their clients. I was surprised to hear back from them. When I got the call I thought to myself wow I can do this and they want to help me get started, they want me to succeed. So far I am still in the very early stages of this process but I have had their support from the very first phone call. You will never know until you try and Davison should be where you start. They want you to succeed.

Original review: March 18, 2018

In November 2016 I paid Davison $5,800 to get my product in front of US manufacturers. Initially service seemed to be VERY good. They identified a company who unfortunately would not sign a confidentiality agreement. As such I chose not to go with them. Since then I have not heard a word from Davison and neither will they respond to my emails or phone calls. In short, they have taken my money and run. I believe Davison are a scam. They talk a good talk but that's about how far it goes. I would recommend staying away from this company and not paying them a penny as you are unlikely to see anything in return.

The experience with Davison has been a pleasant one. The staff are very accommodating in all your concerns, needs, and questions. I currently have two products with them. I'm currently trying to placed these products out in the market. Most definitely more will followed in the near future.

Alarming Handbag Patent - My patent idea rested in Davison's hands/desk since 2008, before it was noticed and came to their attention that it could be feasible. I read somewhere, and understand, that: "our biggest failure is - by not trying". God bless all those who have good ideas.

Original review: March 12, 2018

I am very displeased with Davison. It cost me $16,000 and took over one year to get a prototype and patent. The people I work with at Davison will not return my calls. All communication is on their schedule. No one will listen to my input. I sent multiple drawings, pictures and videos illustrating what I was trying to accomplish and after a year it wasn't close to what I had envisioned, they did finally relent and offered to take the prototype they had envisioned and a drawing of what it was actually supposed to look like, or so they told me. It is a specialized piece of equipment, intended for a specialized market and suppliers that deal with these type of devices.

I gave Davison a list of these manufacturers but they will not contact them and after my invention was at the manufacture of Davison's choice for 3 months they decided they did not want it. So Davison wants another $395 to freshen up the prototype and send it to another manufacturer of their choice that does not produce these types of parts. When I call Davison I am told Mr. Davison does not take calls, I am sent to my representative in the licensing department's voicemail and am certain I will not get a callback. All I want is the prototype I paid for and I will take it to a manufacturer myself or to another firm I am working with. WARNING. This company will take you for a ride and squeeze every nickel they can from you!

I love Davison. They are very efficient knowledgeable with my idea. I would love to have them assist me with future ideas. I feel I'm with the right team. They can most definitely bring me forward. I see many of brilliant products that can be effective in our daily lives. What had impressed me was the man that came up with the idea of delaying the windshield wiper, then they made a movie about him. Very motivating.

Davidson Invention land is a scam - $5,800 dollars later and they have changed my invention so many times and sold me a price of paper. All the reviews are people in progress none completed. They send YouTube videos to get you to keep sending money and you will keep sending it till your broke and get nothing. Scam and they only want your money.
