Efficient and flexible product development for start-ups

Focus on efficiency

Special attention is paid to the efficient use of limited resources and to setting the right priorities. Every year, the German Start-up Monitor (DSM) summarizes statements from start-ups in Germany on the respective priorities that the young companies set themselves. In 2019, 81% of the start-ups stated that product development is (very) important. In addition, the development and implementation of functional processes, structures and communication channels is rated as a (very) important company priority (63.9%). The goal is to increase the coordination and efficiency of the start-ups in the long term and thus achieve sustainable growth.

Choosing the right solution

As CENIT AG, we support you in setting up or further developing your product development in a sustainable manner and tailored to your needs. With 3DEXPERIENCE we offer a cloud-based platform for efficient cooperation in product development. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides all the necessary tools to accompany a product from the initial idea, CAD design, simulation and production to the creation of high-end marketing materials. The solution can be flexibly and scalably adapted to functional and organizational changes and does not require an existing IT infrastructure.

Thanks to our years of experience, we are experts in many industries, such as aerospace, transport & mobility, life science, consumer goods or high-tech industry. As a consultant and service provider, we accompany you from solution finding to implementation, taking into account the different levels of maturity and requirements of young companies.
