You might feel eager to implement the business model that exciting new technology enables, but do not feel sure what’s the best way to go about it. Do you find yourself spending millions every year on big shot strategy consultants like McKinsey or BCG yet still feeling unsure about the future?

Why opt for a Digital Strategy Company?

The essence of consulting with digital strategy professionals is to get expert analysis done to identify core issues and recognize opportunities, and to set proven measures of development in place so your company can reach the heights it’s supposed to – faster, better, and more efficiently. By “faster”, we mean less time exploring and more time implementing, by “better”, we mean crystal clear communication and work processes, and by “more efficiently”, we mean less resource expenditure in contrast to traditional means that involve merely introducing digital products (such as websites and applications).

To undergo a digital transformation, digital strategy experts worth their salt ensure success by meeting three criteria:

  • All your employees accept the digital transformation because they see a clear benefit for themselves, a clear benefit for the company, and thus an improvement in the status quo
  • Your customers use the newly developed technology more eagerly and more often than the previous solution because it represents added values (such as faster, cheaper, more powerful) for their everyday life
  • Through the digital transformation, your company can sustainably consolidate its core competencies (ie its unique selling proposition), and expand the scope of action geographically or into new business areas

B-works: How we plan your smart way ahead
PHASE 1: Analysis and Strategy Development

The first step is to do a status quo analysis and think up concepts that are in line with your business vision. This involves:

  • Interview of internal and external stakeholders to understand their respective wants and needs
  • Calculation of business affordables to determine the resources available and required for planning, implementation and funding
  • Proactively defining and validating the company's goals and KPIs
  • Scoping the technical ecosystem to understand the technical status quo, design the system architecture, and devise an implementation plan for software development
  • Developing four to six customer personas - these customer personas are used to precisely discuss the usage profiles and requirements of the customers so that they can be implemented unanimously in products, services or adaptations to the company

Support for Digital Executives

PHASE 2: Implementation and Agile Software Development

After the initial consultation on digital transformation, B-works translates your business requirements into a powerful technology architecture that convinces on all devices (desktop, tablet and mobile), regardless of the operating system. Thanks to our experience with JavaScript frameworks (AngularJS, VueJS, NodeJS), object-based frameworks (Symfony), and open-source content management platforms (Drupal 8), we develop a robust, secure and easy-to-maintain website or application that will elevate your company to another level.

PHASE 3: Data Analysis, Tracking, Iterative Improvements And Reporting

Through powerful performance tracking tools and analytics, we carefully measure the data relevant to you. We then continuously test and improve iteratively to give you a composite overview of your business affordables and KPIs.

PHASE 4: Knowledge Transfer

As soon as the first three phases are completed, we do a complete knowledge transfer to you and your team. We take care to provide your internal team with concrete knowledge, data and facts to make the transfer as clear and successful as possible so your new business direction continues to move smoothly.
