New Business Models in the Manufacturing Industry

How to expand value and get more from your core business

Use Case
Video: 5 Challenges
Our Services

The use of innovative technologies enables the meaningful expansion of your own traditional value creation and even the development of completely new business areas. In addition to the exploitation of your own data, these include new digital product features (such as networking via IIoT), digital value-added services or even rental models or equipment as a service for your customers. There are two major challenges: The technical basis and implementation competence on the one hand, organizational tensions on the other. In the context of a Digital Transformation, two worlds collide - companies that best combine their core business and their ability (and speed) to innovate will continue to be successful in the future.

New Business Models in Practice

Your Challenge

Customer demands are becoming increasingly individualized. This poses challenges for making the company's own production more flexible. However, it also creates new potential for continuing to interact with customers after the sale of the company's own products and thus generating further sales through service business.

The Vision

The target of Industry 4.0 is connected production and the resulting transparency. Connected machines enable granular control of production orders, so that individual production can be carried out according to customer requirements. Connected products offer you a new insight into the use of your products after the sale. This allows products to be improved and new value-added services to be developed.

Our Solution

We support you in both the technical and the functional implementation. We can take over the connection of machines for you, in addition we bring in our know-how in the context of meaningful connected products (Industrial Internet of Things) - furthermore, we bring in the necessary innovation expertise to build up new business models and to integrate them organizationally to help you achieve more growth.

Benefits for You as a Manufacturing Company
