Impact Stories

Transforming Your Digital Supply Chain

While a client had invested considerable time and money in digital transformation projects, they hadn’t seen the ‘promise of advanced analytics’ materialize within their organization. Using our project portfolio tool, we helped the organization plan and manage their digital transformation by defining and clarifying the benefits of a digital strategy

Innovating with Digital Twin Technology

Our client wanted to create a model to help small Rustbelt communities thrive and compete in the digital age while encouraging economic revitalization and development. After examining external technology trends and engaging with the organization’s stakeholders, we identified digital twin technologies as a driver of regional innovation and transformation.
