INTRASOFT International Innovation
INTRASOFT International is embracing the global movement of innovation and entrepreneurship and strategically uses it as the disruptive change mechanism for differentiating its offering and penetrating new sustainable markets.
The key ingredient of INTRASOFT’s innovation “blend” is its people, who are constantly looking for new ways to adopt and practice innovative approaches, master new technologies and keep their transformational mindset open to new challenges.
INTRASOFT is fostering innovation and cultivates it as a key organizational value, by engaging in targeted initiatives. The company purposefully organizes innovation competitions, hackathons and other initiatives that allow INTRASOFT people to grow their ideas and entrepreneurial mindset. As an example, during INTRASOFT’s internal innovation competition its people around the globe were challenged to create Innovative ICT related products or services, with the underlying vision to establish an innovative promoting culture within the company. In this effort, the aim was to maximize participation via an enjoyable process and uncover business potential lying within the organization. In addition, this process intended to boost an inside-out approach to innovate. The key message of this competition was “Innovation is appreciated and will be fostered with priority”.
The company continuously seeks to introduce innovative self-development initiatives and toolsets. In that sense, INTRASOFT innovates by offering an ultimate learning experience to the employees, through a digital learning platform that provides an infinite amount of learning opportunities covering the diverse learning styles of its people across all sites. Engaging with innovation and creativity is the hallmark of INTRASOFT’s effectiveness towards the organizational challenge of the innovation imperative. #IntrasoftPeople believe that innovation lies in a culture of open communication and the company’s Human Resources department follows practices to collect people’s needs and feedback that drive the company forward. INTRASOFT’s Human Resource department has been awarded many times for their innovative methods and practices.
Innovation thrives when companies break the silos. Innovating inside-out is an approach that INTRASOFT takes into consideration by identifying the inner strengths that lie within the company and can be the key to success. Therefore, INTRASOFT has formed Agile matrix-based teams that penetrate both horizontally and vertically the full extent of its organization. This way #IntrasoftPeople directly benefit from the existing business knowledge and expertise, while at the same time have ambassadors who greatly assist in the innovation adoption once materialized to something concrete. These matrix-based teams (“Key Enabling Technology Incubation Groups”) are responsible to foster the development of relevant competences across the organization and to identify application areas and applicable commercialization models.
Such groups are now in operation for:
- Advanced data analytics
- Operational and Information technology
Apart from developing its internal innovation capabilities, INTRASOFT continuously seeks for opportunities to extend its portfolio also through externally identified innovation. Targeting sustainable business growth, INTRASOFT is looking to enter Mergers & Acquisitions with relevant startups or scale up companies, so as to provide its customers with cutting edge IT solutions.
INTRASOFT values its customers’ needs and considers their insights as a driver to deliver disruptive innovative technical solutions. The company consequently works very closely with its customers in order to co-design new technical solutions and products with key enabling technologies affecting its markets and activities.
The above multidisciplinary approach which transcends people, operations and business in order to increase the value we offer to our customers is supported by the Research and Innovation Development (RID) department, which focuses in the Research Innovation and the New Ventures department which focuses Business Innovation and intrapreneurship.
