The Promise of a Modern Business Model & Digitization

Today’s business journals and business school literature are filled with articles about transformation initiatives of different types. Most are talking about digital transformation—the use of new, fast, and frequently changing digital technology to solve business problems. At a time when many still wonder whether digital transformation is real or just the latest buzzword, many industrial companies are taking the promise of digital transformation very seriously.

  • Most transformation programs fail to deliver to promise due to limited understanding of what really needs to change. 
  • Without taking a holistic view, true and sustainable transformation is impossible and requires investment in process change, system deployment, and organizational adjustment.  
  • Sustainable transformation results in customer satisfaction with repeatable product and process innovation, which maximizes an organization’s return on investment.  

IpX’s clients are empowered by our industry leading workforce development, organizational change, and services that our clients rely on to set the pace for innovation. With the world leading IpX Workforce Academy and True North Enterprise Calibration service model, our clients cultivate an ecosystem of continual excellence.

IpX brings decades of experience and capability helping companies transform and prosper while disrupting markets with the True North Enterprise Calibration Model. This model is a proven set of best practices that enables global organizations to assess, transform, and thrive.

The Power of an Enterprise Configurator in a PLM System

Read the latest blog post from IpX, "The Power of an Enterprise Configurator in a PLM System" in conjunction with Configit

"Sales teams can configure, price, and quote new product variations without engineering influence because the 'rules' have been predefined. Real-time choices can be made in front of the customer and the options that are sold are known to be good. No more going back to the customer, tail between their legs, and apologizing for recommending a variant that is not technically possible." Read the blog post now.
