Accelerating development cycles and growing, disruptive competitive pressure have made the capacity for innovation the key factor for remaining competitive globally. This means that corporations must ensure that their project portfolios are agile and flexible. This is the only way for them to make their medium and long-term goals attainable. However, many organizations lack adequate transparency. Their product and process knowledge is not available to all employees, and internal processes are cumbersome and slow.

cplace Solution

At one of the world’s biggest hi-tech photonics companies, cplace provides a platform for systematic development, assessment and prioritization of new and innovative project proposals for product portfolio planning. cplace constantly re-analyzes all relevant projects from the company’s portfolio. This process is triggered by the activities of hundreds of employees working on projects. Every project idea that is found to be sustainable based on specific criteria is further elaborated and developed until it reaches market-readiness. As a result, the company is able to consistently adhere to its strategic goals while optimizing its expert personnel and risk management.
