Floatti – The World’s First Super Suitcase

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2016-04-28

Coming with tons of smart features, suspension ride and more – the Floatti offers you what can be considered as a super suitcase for stress-free traveling. Traditional suitcases are bulky and are often not found to live up to your travel needs. Floatti is different. It comes with features you’ve always looked for. Such as a helpful docking strap and integrated hooks to fasten your handbag, backpack or briefcase securely on top, thus leaving your other hand free for tickets, passport or other travel necessities. It also features suspension that is engineered to work for both pushing and pulling actions. The result you get is a smoother ride with much less friction, regardless of the surface. The patented, custom designed damper on each wheel make a massive difference creating a smoother experience over bumpy surfaces. There is also a lightweight, slim and detachable charger for your phone which you can upgrade to a laptop charger if required. This can recharge your iPhone 6S up to seven times, or MacBook for 1.5 times. Floatti has an innovative Smart Handle that puts all of your most-used phone features right in the palm of your hand, thus not letting your handset be a distraction while you’re on the move. To add to this, you can even track the location of Floatti as well as use a smart packing system to arrange your belongings in a neat and tidy manner for convenience. It’s not just a suitcase; it’s a super suitcase indeed.

On June 17th you said: "Your bag was assembled and part of this batch, however, as they have noted that some units may be damage during shipping, please allow me to post an update when I receive the final list before final confirmation. Cheers." Yet, there is no black circle here: https://www.screencast.com/t/fm6HTV6M94 What gives?

Oh Floatti Floatti. It's like you guys just strive to do the wrong thing. Literally almost anyone could have done a better job than you guys. At what point after not generating enough clash flow will you call It quits?

Review from Kickstarter
So, I just check my backer kit. I was # 527 and in the USA. Needless to say, there's no circle roundly READY TO SHIP ergo, it's not on this so called "shipment"and you'll never raise any cash from future sales ERGO, I'm SCREWED out of $670.00. YOU GUYS SUCK!

Review from Kickstarter
You do realize, don’t you that Q3 begins in about a week? Or did you mean Q3 2019? You just can’t resist jerking your backers around. You give yourself deadlines then ignore them. You haven’t met a single one yet. The latest example is the app. You stated that it would be revamped (to hide the non existent smart handle feature) and relaunched June 11. Didn’t happen. It just all lies. It’s completely reprehensible that you are retailing the cases to others that your backers have paid for here. It’s a pyramid scheme. Or fraud. The responsible thing to do would be to get a bank loan and fulfill your obligation to those who gave you a start. But banks expect follow thru and you are not capable.

I apologize for the delays and bringing a stressful experience to our backers.
Once we have some sales figures, we will be able to provide updates and progress on how many units will be assembled for the upcoming batch in Q3 2018. The number of units will also determine which countries we will be shipping to. Thank you again for being patient with us.

In short, good news is that your unit was assembled and part of this shipment. Please allow me to receive the final delivery list before providing final confirmation. Cheers.

It appears you may have changed your email address. I have another account that differs from the one in your profile. However, from the order and the engraving I assume this is your order. If this is correct, your Carry On unit was assembled and is part of this shipment. Let me confirm when I receive the final delivery list. I will also email you to make sure you have access to the correct BACKERKIT details. I apologize for the delays and obstacles that we are facing. Yes, we could have better decision making.

Yes, we apologize but we cannot afford refunds.
Generating a healthy cash flow will provide funds needed to assemble the remaining units.

Review from Kickstarter
I was literally one of your earlier backers and I don’t have a black circle with my “Ready to Ship” status. You’re telling me that now I’ll never get my suitcase? I’m going to put in a formal dispute. This is ridiculous. I have never seen such poor mismanagement in my life. I have an MBA and would’ve happily consulted on your supply chain and finance issues for FREE and yet, you guys did not own up to anything and hire the right professionals. Now you’re in the red for what I will estimate as hundreds of thousands, if not already at a million with thousands of angry customers and can’t even make the appropriate business decision and pull the plug and refund everyone. Miserable. I will actively spend my time telling people NOT to buy your products.
Hai Leong, Ong
Review from Kickstarter
To save you some production cost, just refund me. I am expecting you will say there is no refund but you cannot keep dragging our shipment while giving the same reply every single time!!!! I am not sure how you are managing any of this but if you cannot even fulfill your initial backers, how will you expect any commercial sales????

@Don Fogarty
The fulfillment has notified receiving our container earlier this week and we are waiting for them to do a full inspection and provide us with a final delivery list. If you login to your BACKERKIT, and it status states : Ready to Ship (with the black circle), it means your Carry On unit was assembled and shipped (which does includes yours). However, please await my update upon receiving the final list before confirmation.

@Richard Plotka
I apologize for the situation we are in. The FLOATTI Team is putting more of our own savings to keep this project ongoing and targeting to assemble all the units for our backers. To clarify, your Carry On unit was assembled and shipped. Please allow me to receive the final delivery list before providing confirmation. Yes, it has been a difficult journey and all our backers have been overwhelmingly patient and supportive and I am sorry to hear you had to purchase other bags. However, as one of your units is likely to be delivered soon, the majority of parts being manufacture and with us working to generate a healthy cash flow, we cannot afford refunds.

@GARY MILLER
The container has arrived at the fulfillment center earlier this week and we are waiting their final delivery list after their inspection. As noted in the update, the expected delivery time was 6 weeks to reach the fulfillment center. I will post an update once I receive the delivery list and am happy to provide confirmation via email inquiries.

@Lisa Baggerman Hazen
Thank you for your patience. We got notice earlier this week from the fulfillment center receiving our container, which is 2 weeks earlier than the initial quotation, so that is good news. They will need to inspect the entirety before providing us with a final delivery list. Once that is received I will post an update, where I am happy to answer any email requests regarding their order. Your bag was assembled and part of this batch, however, as they have noted that some units may be damage during shipping, please allow me to post an update when I receive the final list before final confirmation. Cheers.

What is the status of the US shipment? Where can we find a list of who's orders were shipped?
Richard Plotka
Review from Kickstarter
I don't even know where to go with this. I am in the US and my status says ready to ship. From looking at these comments - I am going to need to wait for you to put up a website and then get people to buy more bags so that you can produce mine? This is truly borrowing from Peter to pay Paul... Not healthy business. I would like a refund. Please issue it or I will take up the dispute with Visa. I am very sorry, but feel I have been patient. I have already purchased other bags since these never shipped. No longer have a need and therefore do not want these bags. Thank you.

So, where are all these bags that were shipped? Where are all the HAPPY CUSTOMERS that got there bags? Where is the confirmation emails that a persons bag was shipped and awaiting dispatch? SMH......

Apologies for the delays.
We are working to launch our new website to generate a healthy cash flow. How well we do, will determine the number of units we will assemble for the next batch, targeted during Q3 2018. Depending on the number we will decide which countries we will be shipping to, I will post updates as this progress relaying expectations along the weeks to come.

@David
I understand the disappointment and concerns.
If, we were to run away with the money, we would have closed this project down already.
We are working on the roadmap and the new website where we will put our efforts to drive sales. When it is launched, I will post an update, and when we have sales data I will post regarding our performance and what this means for the next batch that is targeted to be assembled in Q3. I have been admitting to the mistakes and apologized repeatedly and yes the results are not desirable but we are still making steps to delivery.

Review from Kickstarter
You guys are the worst company ever and I have seen many bad businesses in my regional experience. You aren't even upfront about robbing us of our money. You have not even told us of your sales plan, when the sales period will last until or if your website is even ready for sales for god's sakes. Based on your retail price and a general comparison with other competitors (without the smart handle):
You will not make enough sales.
You will not post any timely sales reports because there will not be much sales.
You will continue to drag everyone here through the dirt and give false hope than to shut this thing down and admit your mistakes.
You will continue to eschew responsibility and blame the factories / bad sales climate / bad customers / God / Allah / logsitics partners while using our money as hostage. Please continue your "determination" and delusions while living under a rock. I look forward to your totally expected failure. I will blacklist your company and all who were involved and actively mention this in my stories at all my networking events as I travel for work. I encourage all to do the same. Like many others, I can safely say, I am out.

Thank you for being an early FLOATTI supporter.
We shipped out the majority of Carry On units to Hong Kong. For Check In units, we need to re-manufacture the polycarbonate shells and do another round of industry standard testing with the current assembly factory. The soonest Check In units will be manufactured will be during Q3 2018. Similar to my comment below, this depends on how well we generate a health cash flow, which I will provide information and progress via updates. Once again, sorry for the delays.

@Woo Wai Hon
Thank you for being patient with us.
As we are working to generate a healthy cash flow, I will post updates regarding our progress. How well we do will determine which countries and how many countries we will be shipping to for the next batch. With our current timeline we are targeting assembly during Q3 2018 and as we move forward I will post our sale results and which countries the upcoming batch will be planned for. My apologies for the ambiguous answer, but when we have some results, I will be able to provide a response with more useful information.

@Edward Chance
We do have forecasts and a roadmap but we are not sharing this information publicly. I understand your request, but we will be sharing our results in updates and what level of progress will trigger how many units, and how this number determines which country or countries each upcoming batch will be shipping to. I agree on your concerns, and we can only bring more positive feedback by delivering a good product. We do have advisers with experience. Having their suggestions to a new product with new features and a company of our size along with factories does take time to implement.

Review from Kickstarter
They don't need a manufacturing plan, sales forecast, cash flow management, operations, or design expertise. They are just determined to deliver the luggages.
Edward Chance
Review from Kickstarter
Given many of us are now going to have to wait an undefined period of time before we receive our cases, I believe that the least you can do is provide your backers with a detailed plan on how you plan to achieve sufficient sales to build revenue to allow our items to be built. What is your manufacturing plan for retail? What sales channels are you going to utilise, what markets are you targeting? This isn’t rockets science, you should have a build forecast, a sales forecast, a cash flow and revenue forecast. We deserve the right after waiting so long to see this information My fear for you is that without giving your faithful and now jaded packers some confidences, the social media strength to discredit you will over power your ability to succeed. For what it’s worth, I advise you to find a non executive chairman with some company experience to guide you going forward.

@Julia Bley
I understand the frustration and disappointment.
We have a timeline for our goals, which we mentioned are directly dependent on how well we do. So I rather not give a hard date on the next shipment at this stage where we currently do not have enough data. I rather prefer to provide updates on our progress, and when the time comes to submit our order to assemble the next batch, I will have a clear idea of how many units and which countries we will be shipping to.

I am happy to email you your link to BACKERKIT where you can review your order. Yes, you did fill out your survey and yes your unit was assembled and shipped to USA. However, the fulfillment center will provide us with a final delivery list after they inspect the shipment and work out their logistics. Once I receive this list, I will post an update and will be happy to answer any emails regarding final confirmation. Cheers.

@Creator
And the question when you'll ship to Europe remains unanswered. Is it really THAT difficult to give a timeline. And I do not care that it's costly to swap factories which seems to be a hobby of yours. Of course it is but that is not my business - it's yours. Ans I am not accountable for your poor decision making.
