Making it worldwide

Manufacturers around the world need to meet the demand for shorter cycles of innovation, products designed around customer needs and global service support. To this end they require excellent operational structures and processes as well as agile, responsive supply chains and effective product portfolio management. Most companies cannot offer all this without massive investment in business management and IT capability.


Our team provides dedicated, flexible business and IT solutions to many world-class manufacturing clients. We bring a global outlook to product development units, provide customer focus and market knowledge to sales organisations and help organisations enjoy effective and strategic procurement sourcing, lean production processes and full life-cycle service capabilities globally.

Our wide-ranging solutions include:

  • helping a client to run complex proposal processes more quickly and effectively
  • helping a company to succeed in a high margin driven service business
  • helping sales, distribution and production planning departments to respond quickly and flexibly to sudden fluctuations in market and customer demands

In the context of Industry 4.0 we enabled a client to accelerate the service and maintenance processes for his products through a Remote Monitoring System to achieve increased availability, efficiency and transparency.

We currently focus on:
