Digitalisation has been around in the world of business for a while now. It brings new opportunities, but any business that misses the trend will be rapidly overtaken by their competition or by new players on the market. How advanced is the digital transformation in your company: do you offer digital services, are your processes automated and networked, have you adjusted your business model?

Digitalisation means the use of new IT and communication technologies that allow the “digitalisation” and further development of the business model, service portfolio or operating model. The digital revolution is about much more than the automation of company processes. Digitalisation opens up new paths: whether in the collection and evaluation of customer data, the use of social media, the networking of machines and sensors or in the expansion of the product line to include “smart” products and services.

The potential of using new technology is manifold: revenue can be significantly increased by developing product and service ranges or improving the customer experience, and internal processes can be made more effective and efficient. We support you in systematically harnessing the opportunities brought about by digitalisation!

As part of hpo’s strategy design services, we help you identify technological changes and define new opportunities for your company. We use the areas of business established during this process to create implementable projects and oversee their realisation: whether this involves introducing new business models, improving the customer experience or optimising your company’s processes.

  • What opportunities and risks do new technologies bring for you? How advanced is the digital transformation in your industry and in your company?
  • What strategic options can be deduced from this, and what changes will give you a competitive edge?
  • How does the digitalisation roadmap look, and what initiatives should be prioritised?
