Flexible project models

In cooperation with you, we select the best form of project implementation.

  • Service contract
    Is usually dependent on the effort and is billed according to the actual number of hours worked.
  • Contract of work
    Usually results- and package-oriented. Invoices are issued after successful acceptance. Here, project implementation can also ensue in an agile manner.

Depending on your requirements, we adapt to your project, e.g. in the preparation of a concept on a time and material basis, and the subsequent implementation by contract for work and services.

Technology and process consulting

Process consulting means defining goals, responsibilities and measures in cooperation with you. We model processes and implement them together with you. With many years of experience and strong social competence we optimise your workflow.

Make use of our cross-sector and interdisciplinary know-how and gain access to the latest technologies. This creates lasting competitive advantages for you.

We advise you in the selection of embedded platforms, real-time operating systems, tools, development environments, software, etc. To ensure that you have all the information you need to make the right choice, we carry out evaluations and create, e.g. decision and risk matrices in advance.

We also advise you on your development processes. To this end, we define goals, responsibilities and measures for optimization together with you. With many years of experience and strong social competence we optimise your workflow and improve your product's quality.

You can also find training topics on technology and process consulting in our offer of Expert Sessions.
