CambridgeIQ’s Business Integration Model.
We have a broad knowledge of how technology and product businesses work from the raw technology to the people who develop and market the products and services. This combination allows us to help clients to improve their business performance by ensuring that the integration of the technology, product development processes, people, manufacturing and business strategies are aligned and optimised.
This is particularly pertinent in this digital-era. As an example, traditional product companies face the challenge of connectivity opening up new business models where products might only be the enabler for richer service revenues: is your business at risk of losing out to new competition posed by service companies? If so, please contact us.
CambridgeIQ and our associates have extensive experience of technology and how to best use it for business needs across different sectors. We recognise that technology is only one tool to improve business and that it should be used where there is a market need and in combination with a good commercial strategy.
Our technical expertise includes:
- System design
- Electronics from low-cost printed solutions to high-performance platforms
- Wireless systems
- Embedded software and signal processing, including algorithm design
- Mobile application development for Android and iOS
- Database development
- Product integration: the combination and trade-offs between electronics, power and mechanics
- Optimising design for cost, power, reliability and manufacture to best suit market needs
- Design for Manufacture
- Design for ultra-high volume (billions) down to complex low-volume (one)
- Rapid prototyping (we have access to 3D printing)
- In-life support: road-mapping, cost reduction, feature enhancement, obsolescence management
The digital era has created many new business opportunities for companies. We can help you to realise these by identifying new business models, products and services and then supporting their implementation. This might be particularly useful if your core skills are not in the digital arena.
We have experience of managing complex development projects with £multi-million budgets and aggressive timescales. We use pragmatic agile techniques to ensure we deliver the best results against high risks.
The people in an organisation are always the most important asset and we understand how to increase productivity, capability and retention of staff. This can be through coaching, formal training, role definition or motivating feedback and objective setting.
We are building a collaborative team of associates and partners to provide a flexible offering to clients because we recognise that we can only offer a small part of the overall need.
CambridgeIQ is a member of the Cambridge Wireless community and supports the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning and Judge Business School at Cambridge University.
