Early enablement of managers is the key to success
By Claus Bühs on Apr 26, 2021 / Reading Time: 4 min.
Time is crucial
Digital transformation opens up numerous business opportunities. Companies are taking advantage of these opportunities in many different ways. I think the digital transformation is an organisational, cultural and personnel challenge for many companies. To master this challenge, we first need to answer some questions: Where does the transformation start? Who needs to be prepared for which requirements? How do we stick to the implementation in time (and of course quality and budget)? What do we need to consider for the right timing?
#ClickAndCollect or #ClickAndMeet?
By Felix Jungermann on Mar 10, 2021 / Reading Time: 3 min.
Enabling customers to book shopping appointments via app has been desired by retailers for a long time.
In many federal states in Germany it is currently a necessary feature: ClickAndMeet is shopping with appointment booking. Many customers have come to appreciate ClickAndCollect as an offer for shopping that is as contact-free as possible, and now there is a great opportunity to reopen more shops with the ClickAndMeet variant.
The right timing: When to optimise Travel and Expense Management?
By Martin Pedersen on Mar 4, 2021 / Reading Time: 3 Min.
We are still struggling with pandemic constraints - is now the right time to look at travel and expense management? Now is a good time, not only because we cannot wait to travel any longer: Once business travel is in demand again, there will be a much higher demand for up-to-date information among your employees than before the pandemic. Another reason to think about it: More transparency in travel and expense management will make it easier to cut costs.
Click & Collect helps retailers in the Corona pandemic - and beyond
By Felix Jungermann on Feb 17, 2021 / Reading Time: 3 min.
"Stay at home! Stay safe!" Staying home is the most effective way to avoid infection and protect ourselves as well as our contacts. Staying home, however, for me not only means not going to restaurants, movie theaters, parties and the like, it also means reducing shopping locally at the store and limiting myself to absolutely necessary purchases. The safest and most convenient thing for me would be to be able to do my shopping on site, but not have to enter the store at all!
How smart is your maintenance?
By Héctor Fernández on Nov 19, 2020 / Reading Time: 2 min.
Intelligent maintenance is urgently needed: What makes managers hesitate?
Smart Maintenance has become a technological requirement, because the Smart Factory as a vision of the future also demands the vision of intelligent maintenance. The use of new technologies creates an intelligent and networked production. The necessary technological innovations secure a sustainable and innovative existence for companies.
Individualisation via information - What is relevant?
By Dr. Lucas Calmbach on Aug 27, 2020 / Reading Time: 4 min.
Successful campaigns are usually defined as a holistic scenario. Could AI now be used to populate campaigns with relevant content? But how is AI even capable of this? What must it learn first? In fact, AI approaches an optimized solution step by step and through continuous training.
Change often has to be radical
By Claus Bühs on Jun 25, 2020 / Reading Time: 3 min.
I believe: Transformation is more than "normal" change. It is not linear, but more dynamic, deeper, broader, more radical, in leaps and bounds. It is transformation, not evolution. Transformation management is therefore not comparable with "classic" change management, which is more aimed at generic, more comprehensive, and more unspecific change.
How does Process Mining achieve fast and efficient results?
By Christine Huschenbeth on May 26, 2020 / Reading Time: 4 min.
What can we do to increase the number of "perfect processes"? From the ordering process to delivery and receipt of payment, things can go wrong. With sufficient available data, we make predictions, correct deviations or at least plan for them. How could this look like for the complex area of logistics?
More dynamic logistics networks
By Tobias Götz on May 7, 2020 / Reading Time: 5 min.
What logistics must offer in the future
While the German retail industry celebrates warehouse based order picking via pick-by-voice and self-scanning checkouts as an innovation, in other parts of the world shopping via face and product recognition via camera data analysis is already being tested as a new standard - the operation of the last mile by drone or autonomously driving delivery vehicles are already reality. In order to remain flexible and capable of acting now and in the future, alternatives for delivery service and logistics must be considered and implemented.
Personalised marketing through AI
By Dr. Lucas Calmbach on Apr 16, 2020 / Reading Time: 3 min.
Marketing campaigns can quickly grow complex, requiring time and significant financial investment. In the worst case, they can result in dissatisfied customers who consider the lavishly produced newsletters nothing more than spam. How can it be ensured that customers receive only content that appeals to them personally and adds value? With the aid of AI, content can be disseminated more efficiently.
