Forging a successful future: the digitalization of our company

We are currently witnessing a digital transformation that is unprecedented in its scale and pace. The rapid advance of digitalization is reshaping societies, industries, and corporate landscapes, setting new benchmarks for customer expectations, driving innovation, and requiring new ways of working. All of these factors have massively increased the complexity of the market.

But what does Digital Transformation mean to us, why is digital transformation so important and where does it take place in our company? For us, digital transformation means change within the company and as an employer. Customer interfaces are becoming increasingly digital, employees and customers want new approaches to actively help shape new ideas in a digitalized world. The market is constantly evolving and presents us with new challenges, such as carrying out research & development, quotation processes and supply chains faster and more effectively. We believe in the powerful combination of our unmatched analog products and the great possibilities of digitalization.

For me, digitalization is much more than just a buzzword or even an end in itself. It offers new perspectives in the areas of customer service and customer relationships, leads to extensive changes in company processes, and allows for quicker, objective, and data-driven decision-making.

Three examples of our corporate digital transformation

Digitalization happens across all areas of our company, enhancing our core processes rather than being a goal in itself. With our digital mindset, we’re prepared to tackle any future challenges.
