Switzerland stands out in terms of ecological sustainability, the knowledge-intensive employment process, research collaborations and creation of knowledge. These attributes go hand in hand with the number of patents filed, knowledge diffusion and creative outputs that are among the country’s strongest aspects. As a global platform for Swiss Software Engineering, we rely on these values.
The Swiss innovation mindset has been deeply rooted in our corporate culture since 1994 and includes the creation of consensus, pragmatism, integration, reliability, quality, and transparency. Our international innovation team supports companies on the road to innovation with our skills and experience, and also with our willingness to take risks and the belief that failure helps companies grow (which is so characteristic for Silicon Valley). Our consultants are continually searching for and trying new developments and can differentiate between valuable ideas with potential and short-term hype.
At ERNI, we believe in a holistic approach to doing innovation. We support our clients in designing products or services, and in installing a real innovation culture in their companies, which means that the results can survive in the long term.
There are different models of cooperation. We offer a variety of workshops that target fields from ideation to transformation of mindset, but we can also support you with prototyping or market strategy workshops. We can guide you and coach you and your employees in proceeding further and implementing the innovation sustainably. It’s all about getting things done. We can work with your teams and your project managers from day one, to ensure sustainable changes. But if necessary, we place our innovation managers – who are experienced in innovation projects – into your company, to help empower cultural change from within the client’s ranks. They support the clients in cultural change and transformation towards a new mindset.
Whichever model the client chooses, our innovation managers always work from the inside of the company. We observe, evaluate, analyze, put ourselves in our clients’ shoes and offer end-to-end solutions. We understand that no matter how competitive your industry might be, every company has different people and a different approach to ideas. That is why we always offer tailor-made products and services. Our consultants will provide support during the creative process of developing ideas, and bring methodical competences that smoothen the innovation journey – from the idea to a monetized innovation.
Our goal is not a single-store innovation that generates instant profit to just make customers happy. Although these are both valid goals, we want our clients to establish and adopt the innovation culture. We support them with methods and techniques that assist them during the recruiting process and integration of employees with the right skills and mindset. At ERNI, we always innovate with sustainability in mind. We teach our methods and train our clients, enabling them to successfully innovate on a regular basis.
