Our customers enjoy success throughout the world with their innovative products because they nurture and develop their own special skills. They therefore expect advice from their equals. We focus on what is truly important to our customers. On where obstacles are slowing them down and where potential is being allowed to go unused. Together we set appropriate goals and priorities. CONTACT Elements platform technology allows us to implement special requirements in an agile and cost-effective manner.
Our project managers have mastered agile methods like Scrum. Complex projects are particularly well-suited to agile methods as the advantages provided by adaptive planning and short feedback loops become clearly evident here – the more complex the project, the more important mastering unavoidable gaps in and changes to planning in the project become.
Our project managers are GPM/IPMA-certified and possess project control and system introduction know-how that has been acquired over many years. In consultation with the customer and depending on the scope of the project, they make use of our Project Office system and tools such as checklists, open issues lists, quality gates, milestone trend analyses and earned value.
Nowadays, even relatively small companies operate with internationally distributed production and even development sites. Products are developed in networks that involve partners and suppliers. The success of a project therefore depends on a technology and platform where performance in wide area network environments, multilingualism and robust security are standard. And where international projects are part of day-to-day business. Our CONTACT Global Ecosystem means that we are synonymous with solutions that work around the clock at numerous sites distributed around the globe.
Processes that are optimally tailored to meet the specific needs of each company are one of the most important factors of success. Many companies therefore have mature standards and best practices at their disposal. We work together with them to map these to the extensive possibilities that the digital methods in our products offer. And we supplement them with our own best practices gained from hundreds of projects for industry. The advantage for you: significantly improved process efficiency, data quality and regulatory compliance.
