Transform your Business

Shift your business model from selling products to becoming a trusted advisor to end users

By improving inventory turns, optimizing logistics, reducing asset downtimes, strategic sourcing, and remote servicing, you can maximize your operating margins and profitability without compromising on resiliency.

With Microsoft Cloud for Manufacturing companies can predict, detect, and resolve issues before their customers even know there’s a problem.

The technology surrounding energy services is changing quickly, as are the customers.

"Bredenoord doesn’t want to only continue developing products, but also wants to remain at the top of its game with its business model. We want to continue to deliver quick and reliable energy to our customers and this was our challenge. Besides this, the possibility of creating financial reports was limited in the old system. To successfully achieve our ambitions this process needed to be replaced as well.”

Jaap Fluit, CEO Bredenoord

Unleash manufacturing productivity with data analytics

More and more manufacturers are applying data and analytics across their processes to optimise their supply chains, improve product scheduling and sales forecasting, reduce costs, develop new propositions and monitor machine usage and reliability.

HSO works with many well-known and enterprise-sized manufacturers. We offer a Data Maturity Assessment to help manufacturing companies get measurable value from their data. It is a five-day diagnostic exercise, based around a series of workshops and interviews that measures the value of your Data and Analytics activities. By the end of the assessment, you will find out how your data is being used and the steps to take to embed a data-first culture.

For example, we helped MPS Systems to develop new business model and service by using data and IoT to get maximum value from printing machines.
