KPS Rapid Transformation is synonymous with expertise, experience, and high speed when it comes to implementing transformation initiatives. Cost and complexity often mean that companies are reluctant to invest in processes and technologies. KPS makes complex transformation projects manageable, controllable, and rapidly implementable – through a winning combination of proven methodologies and experienced experts. KPS clients benefit faster from innovative new processes and technologies.
From enterprise resource management to digital customer management
In recent years, there has been a move away from thinking based on enterprise resource management (ERP) and toward a customer-oriented mindset. But systematically focusing on customers often requires systematic realignment of all processes within the company, and the interplay of tried-and-trusted and innovative technologies. KPS is one of the few consulting partners in the market that can cover the entire range of processes, from classic ERP to e-commerce and digital customer management (CxM) and digital marketing. As a result, the KPS consultants are able not only to consider the company and its processes holistically, but also to create and integrate custom solutions for individual corporate divisions.
New technologies create new opportunities
Using the right technologies to collect, analyze, and evaluate large volumes of data (in other words, analytics) is as much a part of the KPS consultants’ service portfolio as developing apps or deploying mobile technologies. In all cases, the focus is firmly on engaging customers consistently across all channels and providing a consistent brand and product experience – not only in retailing, but also in the consumer products and services sectors. And digital technologies are also increasingly making inroads in the manufacturing industry.
