Digital products & services in your product portfolio

Digital Services

Digital business models are fundamental

As digitalization progresses, your customers and partners expect more and more interaction via digital channels. In saturated markets, digital products and services also offer a new, disproportionately scalable source of revenue that many companies are not yet taking advantage of.

Increasing the proportion of digital products & services in the service portfolio is therefore key to future value creation. This means that business capabilities, such as software engineering, eCommerce & customer analytics to create digital paths to the customer via apps, platforms & IoT devices, are a strategic business capability.

We work with you to establish new digital business models in your portfolio and make existing ones more successful!

Together, we identify new business opportunities in a customer-centric way and develop your new product vision. We then prepare to implement and realize your digital product or service and manage it through to its release. From there, the product is iteratively further developed through user feedback, thereby increasing the value of the product and your ROI.

The most important areas of action at a glance

Digital paths to customers

These are various channels and platforms through which companies interact with their customers, reach them and offer their products or services. They include websites, e-commerce platforms, social media, mobile apps and also physical products.

Digital channels to customers are becoming increasingly important as technology and customer behavior evolve.

Digital channels allow companies to expand their reach and reach customers wherever they are active online.

Data analysis enables companies to understand their customers' behavior and provide them with customized offers. This improves communication and increases the effectiveness of marketing campaigns. In addition, digital channels offer the possibility of direct customer feedback and customer loyalty.

Companies must keep pace with these changes in order to remain competitive, promote their growth and be successful.

Smart products

Smart products provide companies with technologically advanced solutions that have internet connectivity and sensors. They enable personalized customer experiences, improved connectivity and increased efficiency. Smart products have become increasingly important for companies.

They increase efficiency through automation and promote customer loyalty. The connectivity of smart products also enables integration with other devices, systems and platforms. Companies can collect and analyze valuable usage data and use it to improve their products.

In an increasingly networked and digital world, smart products are growing in importance. They enable companies to develop innovative solutions that meet customer requirements.

Together with you, we make your products smart and build new digital business models based on them.

Platforms

Platform business models enable you to leverage synergies with partners and create additional added value for customers. We design these with you both online and in the app.

Platforms are particularly relevant as they offer access to a large and already interested target group. They often have an established user base that is actively looking for relevant products or services. Companies can build new business models (with partners) through the presence or creation of a platform.

They offer eCommerce, customer relationship management (CRM) for customer analysis and interaction & content management. This allows them to collect data and draw insights to optimize their marketing strategies and adapt their offers.

In an increasingly digitalized world, partnerships and collaborative business models are becoming more and more important. They provide an effective way to reach a large and interested target group, process transactions and strengthen customer relationships. They should therefore take advantage of the opportunities offered by platforms to promote their success and growth in the digital era.
