Digitalization of the work environment
"Digitalization radically changes society and markets."
"Digitalization changes our economic and professional life as well as our personal life."
Digitalization is regarded as a mega-trend and increasingly finds its way into professional and private lives. Every job will be affected by coming developments and innovations, both in administration and in manufacturing and logistics. For companies, digitalization is an opportunity and a challenge at the same time:
- Company processes are becoming faster and more efficient. Together with improved interaction and communication, the virtual office and distributed working, this leads to higher flexibility and agility – and thus to increased competitiveness, especially internationally.
- Through digitalization, people can focus on things they can do better than computers. This helps when there is a shortage of qualified employees.
- Tasks can be worked on independent of a location – not only while travelling, but also when working from home. This, too, makes an employer more attractive.
The challenge is to find the right path and a balanced relation between necessary investments and achievable benefits. “First the processes, then the systems,” is the rule in digitalized areas as well: Introducing digital tools only makes sense once the necessary preparations have been carried out diligently, for example in the optimization of processes, qualification, standards, data structures, or employment rules.
We support companies on their way to digitalized processes. Together with them, we create a road map, select useful systems and tools, and most of all we help with identifying and carrying out the any necessary groundwork. Our credo here is: Not digitalization at any cost, but only where it adds value.
Since its foundation in 1978, GEPRO supports companies in optimizing their value-adding processes. This include continuous adaptation to altered constraints and new opportunities. We have extensive experience in this. In parallel, we observe the digital tools on offer and save them in our own database so we can competently suggest the right tools at any given time.
