A powerful driver of our innovation today: Digitalization
Digitalization is not only revolutionizing entire markets and business models, it is also an important driver of innovation. As it continues to revolutionize people’s lives, it offers us the chance to make even more of a difference. The aim of ‘advancing technologies for life’ is in our DNA, so we embrace these technologies to create more value for our customers and patients. Here is some of what we are up to:
- We use data analysis to facilitate product innovation and to improve existing offerings and new products, services and business models.
- Digital platforms enable us to create a smoother customer experience, and modern data analysis allows us to keep adapting to their needs and preferences.
- Through an unprecedented amount of logistics information, we can now optimize our supply chain management in real time. We leverage this data to predict issues and respond quickly, ensuring a more reliable inventory.
