KPS Facts

Quick introduction ...


Change is accelerating, the speed of innovation is increasing. Process changes that used to take three or four years must now be completed in a few weeks or months. When the specialists at KPS are commissioned, that's exactly what it's all about.  

KPS is one of the leading consulting partners for digital transformation, starting with the digital strategy, through process design for the digital, intelligent company, to the entire area of off- and online customer interaction in the B2B and B2C sectors. In doing so, we keep the processes end-to-end in mind,  company-wide and across the entire ecosystem. This requires innovative concepts, deeply integrated process knowledge and the right technologies for the respective business functions. Everyone must work together in order to achieve the overall objective: to be as close as possible to the customer.

Aligned with the defined strategic goals, our customers click & select turnkey, industry-specific processes along the entire value chain in the KPS Design Centers in real-time. Afterwards, individualization according to the needs of the company is carried out by means of rapid prototyping or the development of a corresponding MVP - minimal viable products - within the shortest possible time. This enables the visualization of new processes and applications in a collaborative, state-of-the-art environment at a very early stage. The KPS Campus Approach ensures the onboarding of all business functions. This gives our customers a tangible advantage.

External knowledge can be invaluable for any company to make its operating processes more dynamic or - quite simply - to reinvent itself in order to be successful in evolving or changing markets. KPS is the partner of choice for reaching these ambitious goals.
