With the software for Adaptive Process Execution, Operations1 provides a solution for intuitive worker guidance and connects the organization in manufacturing companies.

"The pressure for change on industrial companies will increase in the coming years. While for many companies it is a matter of installing future-proof, flexible operational processes to deal with continuous change, external shocks, competitive pressure or customer-driven factors, the requirement for operational excellence remains. At Operations1, we help industrial companies in mastering precisely these challenges. I'm very excited to be a part of this great team, empowering our customers and globalizing our mission."
"With Daniel Furtwängler, we were able to gain a very experienced executive. Among others, Daniel will be responsible for aligning our sales process even closer to our customers and making it internationally scalable.
