Future-proof your business
To successfully take the next wave of economic and technological transformation, organisations need to do more than innovating their products or launching an app. Change needs to happen now, and it needs to come from within. As your all-in-one partner we are equipped to create and implement a holistic strategy involving your products, processes, digital presence and people.
Stay ahead in the race
Technology has drastically changed the way you do business. It's even changing the nature of your industry and client relations. Customers now turn to your company as they would to a life partner, expecting you to go beyond your traditional offering. To remain relevant, your organisation, brand and digital ecosystem will have to adapt as - and preferably before - these evolutions happen. The challenges of the decades ahead might have you gasping for air. Not to worry. We're more than happy to accompany you on this journey. As your dedicated partner we'll help you explore the opportunities and map out the road ahead. You can count on us for consultancy and operational support, from early analysis to full implementation.

Why challenging the status quo is an excellent innovation strategyToday, even innovation and transformation processes are highly subject to innovation and transformation. Uilke Duinstra, innovation strategist at the Utrecht campus of iO, is getting more and more questions from customers like: “We are a mobility company, but we also want to enter the energy market. How do we do that?” or “We are a B2B company, but how do we also become B2C?” More generally, it concerns questions such as “How can we develop relevant new services step by step, without immediately plunging into a multimillion-dollar project we’re not sure will work at all?” These kinds of issues, which show that domains and sectors are increasingly fading, require a new approach to innovation processes.
Smarter innovation through Design ThinkingResearch demonstrates that companies that shape products and services, in a co-creative process with their end users, can benefit from as much as a 32% higher revenue growth than their competitors, over 5 years. It’s little wonder that Design Thinking — a solution-oriented methodology, in which issues are defined directly from listening to the needs of the end user — is gaining ground. Bas van Dun and Dylan Fanego, digital strategy consultant and UX designer at iO, explain: "Sometimes the solution does not lie in the app or website that you initially had in mind".
B2B e-commerce is still in its early stages in EuropeB2B e-commerce in Europe is in its infancy when compared to online sales on other continents, such as Asia and America. Hans Maltha, CCO of iO, believes we have a lot of catching up to do. He provides the necessary tips and tricks for a B2B organisation to be prepared and to make rapid progress.
Strengthening your B2B brand in 2022In the past, B2B was regarded as the smaller, less interesting brother of B2C. Now we know better. Today we'll show you how you can make a difference as a contemporary B2B brand and get the edge on your competitors.
