Heidelberg Digital Unit one of Germany’s top digital labs for third time in succession
For the third time in succession, the Heidelberg Digital Unit (HDU) at Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is being honored with a Capital Award as one of Germany’s top digital labs in the “core-business-related innovation” category.
|“To be recognized as one of the best digital labs in Germany gives us great pleasure. The fact that we have been honored for the third time in a row in the third year of our existence proves that the multidisciplinary team at HDU makes outstanding contributions to innovation – and does so continuously and with concrete contributions to our core business. I am very proud to be part of this team.”
This is the fifth time experts from German management consultancy firm Infront Consulting and Germany’s Capital business magazine have investigated the successes companies are achieving with digital labs. Their focus was on innovations that have also been successfully commercialized.
Each year, the Capital Award is presented in two categories – “core-business-related innovation” and “non-core-business-related innovation” – each with the sub-categories “industry” and “service”. The Heidelberg Digital Unit won a Capital Award in the “core-business-related innovation” category (“industry” sub-category). Having come third last year with its Print Industry Climate Report, HDU went one better this year by achieving second place.
The panel of judges appointed by Infront Consulting and Capital decided to present Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG with an award after analyzing an online questionnaire and speaking in person to HDU operations managers and the company’s management team.
