ARE YOU ADAPTING FAST ENOUGH TO GROW IN THE DIGITAL WORLD ?

As digital technologies permeate all aspects of business and operations, companies around the world need to anticipate the need for massive change and fast adaption over the next few years to stay ahead – and survive!

Companies often experience substantial difficulties when exploring and launching digital initiatives and transformation programes – on time and on budget and with the impact to business and organization as planned. There are manifold reasons for this. From our experience we identified key steps for companies to consider as they seek to capitalize on disruption:

  • Communicate your Digital Strategy: People can’t change what they don’t understand. Transformation begins with creating a sense of purpose and a common understanding by defining and communicating a compelling strategy for the digital economy. Communication from leadership about the need for change is one of the three most effective means of building a growth and change-embracing culture.
  • Become Fluid: Digital leaders focus on breaking down silos and keeping the organizational structure more fluid than fixed in order to respond to the dynamic nature of the digital economy. Very digital organizations were almost four times as likely as not-very-digital companies to be fluid.
  • Create Think Teams: In launching digital initiatives, leading companies bring together cross-functional teams, including employees with deep industry knowledge, analytics skills, creative skills, policy knowledge, and more. Diverse, winning teams often focus on using an agile approach to development, using design thinking, and deploying a MVP approach to new-product rollouts.
  • Experiment and Adopt: Digital innovation means working with and exploiting data in completely new ways. And digital organizations must adopt a mind-set of speed and experimentation. As they make this shift, companies are focusing on developing faster responses to customer insights and market shifts, as well as making full use of assets and capabilities that are available in the cloud.
  • Rethink IT: Legacy IT is often too slow and rigid for digital businesses. As companies modernize they are looking to gain flexibility, scalability, and – above all – speed. Increasingly, this means leveraging cloud services and an API/services-based infrastructure.  CDOs collaborate closely with CIOs in this IT transformation.
” IN THE END, A VISION WITHOUT THE ABILITY TO EXECUTE IS PROBABLY A HALLUCINATION. “

COMPETENCIES

mobileVision Group is systematically building and expanding its capabilities and expertise in four distinct areas which are critical to succeed in the digital era.

MOBILE FINANCIAL SERVICES

The proliferation of mobile phones and changes in the payments industry are affecting all participants in the value chain. The world of merchants, acquirers, switches and card schemes is constantly evolving. New technology like mobile payment and blockchain combined with regulations like PSD2 are playing a pivotal role in enabling this change. Traditional terminal manufacturers find themselves under pressure as (cloud-based) software solutions and especially mobile apps can now provide more value added payment functionality to the end consumer as many traditional financial services companies. As a result of this, independent software vendors (ISVs) that provide payment solutions are thriving like never before.

Over the last ten years we helped many clients around the world to design and launch innovative approaches to participate in the high margins of financial services and created solutions to explore new opportunities.

 

 

Digital Commerce

Digital commerce is the buying and selling of goods and services using digital channels such as Internet, mobile networks and commerce infrastructure. Digital commerce is in the midst of (yet another) revolution and things are moving faster than ever. The Covid-19 global pandemic pushed digital commerce front and center for both B2B and B2C buyers, driving half of shoppers to buy products they’ve never bought online before, with 70% buying more than usual. While all this excitement means new possibilities, it also comes with the challenge of figuring out just how to proceed.

Traditionally, B2B has been lagging behind more innovative B2C organizations. However the pandemic has been a wakeup call to all businesses to get their digital commerce strategy in order, amplifying the importance of customer experience and customer demands for better online experiences.

 

We help brands, retailers and B2B companies who want to grow their revenue online while delivering each of their customers a premium, personalized experience.

TRANSFORMATIONAL TECHNOLOGIES

5G, Cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data Analytics and blockchain represent an unprecedented opportunity for the enterprise and the public sector. Every institution capable of exploiting these technologies will have a chance to radically streamline and enhance existing processes, create entirely new business models, and develop innovative products and services for a new generation of consumers. Technologically enabled future has arrived — the technology capabilities are available today to help you build the business of tomorrow.

 

Whether you are a start-up or a corporation which is enhancing its products with a new tech-based offering, already a smart product/service company or a telco, utility or manufacturing company, a steady stream of new digital proposition launches could propel your business dramatically and add to your growth story. Our experts guide you in realizing your end-to-end IoT/AI/Data enabled digital products and services, and help you with the digital transformation of your company.

Digital Transformation

It requires a strategic approach to prepare your business for the digital transformation. 

A business may take on digital transformation for several reasons. But by far, the most likely reason is that they have to: It's a survival issue. In the wake of the pandemic, an organization's ability to adapt quickly to supply chain disruptions, time to market pressures, and rapidly changing customer expectations has become super critical.

It's also worth noting that today's organizations are in different places on the road to digital transformation. If you are feeling stuck in your digital transformation work, you are not alone. One of the hardest questions in digital transformation is how to get over the initial humps from vision to execution. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought new urgency to meeting digital transformation goals – and forced many organizations to speed up transformation work. 

We identify what is needed to transform the traditional business, either by building on new technologies and platforms for entire new businesses or by enhancing the ‘bricks-and-mortar’ business so that new or additional revenue growth can be achieved.
