To achieve this, the company launched numerous initiatives around three years ago to bring digital know-how into the company, digitise the existing business model and launch new digital products on the market.

Two New Departments and New Work Concept

Two new departments accelerate digital activities. The 'CX/UX' team lays the foundation for new business models with well-founded customer research. UX specialists take care of their further development. Digital Solutions' is the team for the development of digital business models. In addition, the New Work concept was established at the beginning of 2019. Together with its employees and a renowned architect, DKV has created a completely new, modern and digital working environment in a separate building. The concept promotes communication and collaboration. The motivation to learn agile methods and to let them flow into everyday life has increased significantly as a result.
