Mikme was founded in 2014 by Philipp Sonnleitner, a passionate musician. When he's not producing electronic beats, he likes to sit at the piano. He wants to record his newly produced pieces in the best quality and simply share them with his family. In the past, however, this proved to be a great challenge. This is how the idea for Mikme came about: a wireless microphone including an audio recorder that records every sound in studio quality at the touch of a button and sends the automatically synchronized recordings wirelessly to his own Mikme App. Meanwhile, even the video sync works. This means that audio and video clips can not only be produced and edited on the go but can also be published immediately - in just a few minutes and in top quality.

Teething problems with shipping - an expensive issue

In the beginning, the shipment was handled with a walk to the local post office. This went quite well in the beginning, but it quickly became clear that this could not be a long-term solution. The time spent and the high shipping prices became more and more noticeable over time.

The company began to seek offers from logistics companies, but these were expensive and would in part have required integration into its own system, which would have resulted in considerable switching costs. The fact that the start-up did not have a high shipping volume from the start also affected the price, so no satisfactory solution could be found.

A suitable complete logistics solution for the handling of the crowdfunding campaign

Even though it was possible to negotiate a contract with a shipping service provider at attractive conditions, the time required for packaging proved to be too high due to the increasing shipping volumes. Particularly with regard to the handling of the crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, no suitable solution could be found until byrd contacted the company. With a fulfillment partner at the side, who has the necessary know-how in the field of logistics to send dangerous goods shipments worldwide, smooth handling of the campaign could be accomplished.

After this was successfully completed and Mikme was satisfied with the service, Mikme decided to cooperate with byrd on a long-term basis.

Fortunately, our Indiegogo campaign was a huge success, but how do all the products reach our supporters at once? Thanks to the simple batch fulfillment service from byrd, our microphones could be sent efficiently, punctually, and cheaply all over the world – without any additional effort for us.

byrd - the personal fulfillment partner

Mikme appreciates the time and costs savings, but above all the all-around service that byrd offers. This includes the customs declaration and enables the products to be shipped worldwide with minimum effort.

In addition, there is a high degree of flexibility, which is of great importance for the Mikme team: "For us, it is simply great to have a partner who reacts to possible spontaneous deliveries, bottlenecks, or other problems during a start-up and who offers or seeks solutions". In fact, the team is also an important point, as Laura von Mikme emphasizes: "With byrd we have a reliable, uncomplicated and committed partner who is at our side with all shipping questions, who is always looking for the best solution and who is immediately there when we need to send our Mikmes around the world.
