Why Choose Innovate!
Digital transformation is more than new technology, it is about how processes affect your People. Legacy processes are not just costing you in lack of efficiency, they are one of the leading causes for staff dissatisfaction. In 1967, the average lifespan of a company on the Fortune 500 was around 75 years. In 2018, it was less than 15 years. Private sector companies that failed to transform their business got replaced. In the public sector, that means dealing with the challenges of reduced funding, reorganization, and limitations that make it hard to do your job and have easy access to the information you need.
Innovate! has been leading digital transformation initiatives for 18 years, transforming business for people. We will be right beside you with a team of passionate experts to ensure your success. Innovate!’s team brings research, planning, execution, training, and communications expertise to the transformation. We also empower your decisions with data (e.g., return on investment, performance measures, the total cost of ownership) to make the best business decisions possible for your organization.
Because every organization starts from a different place, you need a partner that starts with understanding your unique needs and then co-creates the plan with you. Innovate! is an elite digital transformation partner — a partner who brings a disciplined mindset to all aspects of our approach and who understands that successful digital transformation centers on the evolving relationship between users’ experience, business objectives, and the future of the organization. Our full, holistic business solutions empower the user to adopt and adapt to new and emerging technologies. We help you create new — or modify existing — business processes, culture, and customer experiences to meet changing regulatory and business requirements.
