Industry situation – intralogistics
Technological and subsequent innovations such as indoor drones, developmental leaps in the field of robotics, the trend towards the flexibilization of production, and a growing customer requirement for ubiquity and transparency are all increasing the pressure for innovation.
The result far exceeds the defined fields of service. The trend management was in fact further developed, creating perspicuity for the innovation strategy.
Our environment is engaged in permanent transformation. Trends are important instruments for companies and act as indicators for identifying, portraying and clearly categorising changes. Kardex Remstar identified the most valuable innovation opportunities using the TRENDONE systematic trend management process.
Kardex Remstar began by developing a systematic trend management process
Kardex Remstar executed its entry into a systematic trend management process with the creation and evaluation of the individual trend universe with two trend radars. This was followed by defining corporate specific innovation fields together with TRENDONE. Continuous trend monitoring, regular trend re-evaluations and the extrapolation of implications on innovation fields are essential factors for realising the continuous strengthening of innovative capacity and sustainability.
Kardex Remstar and TRENDONE developed an effective innovation strategy together and implemented it in the corporate strategy. This forms the foundation for not only developing projects from the requirements of daily business, but for planning and executing innovative projects that go beyond a five-year horizon.
Continuous strengthening of innovative capability and transformation ability
Kardex Remstar has been placed in the position of pursuing effective targeted innovation projects and aligning and adjusting innovation goals with an annual update in the trend management and strategy process. Clearly defined innovation fields allow Kardex Remstar to direct its strategic forces and internal corporate resources to implementing targeted and successful innovation projects.
Developing innovation areas based on the Trend Radar is incredibly helpful for focusing innovation activity. The entire Kardex organisation has a very clear image of which areas we wish to invest our innovation strength in. This results in efficiency and rigour.
