The automotive sector is one of the most project-intensive industries

Electromobility, autonomous driving, car sharing and connected mobility: Automotive manufacturers and suppliers are spending billions to develop the next generation of vehicles to meet the demands of rapidly changing mobility.

The need for innovation is intensifying. Growing competition demands more and more powerful technologies and shorter product life cycles. Product complexity is constantly increasing, as are the requirements for meeting deadlines, costs and quality. Relationships between OEMs and suppliers are becoming increasingly collaborative.

Companies in the automotive industry need solutions that create transparency across complex development processes and support product innovation. Interdisciplinary project management between manufacturers and suppliers also places high demands on communication and interconnected working.

Change is the only constant - the automotive industry invests in innovation

  • New requirements through mobility services: Automotive companies must adapt their processes, organization and IT to the changing market situation.
  • Increasing collaboration between OEMs, BigTech companies and specialized start-ups is becoming essential. The automobile sector is moving away from supply chains to complex ecosystems.
  • Data-driven decision processes: Big Data and AI require change management across the entire organization and structure.
  • Transition to e-commerce or direct sales through digital platforms and other digital commerce solutions.

Satisfied automotive customers

„It was the unique mix of functionality, flexibility and expandability that ultimately tipped the scales in favor of cplace, and which we did not find in any other solution in the selection process.“

Christoph Heinemann, Business Project Leader, Continental Reifen Deutschland GmbH

Case Study

"The specialist department is now an integral part of our internal feature teams. This is only possible because cplace supports us with the right technology - and has done so for four years. Thanks to cplace, we can implement requirements with no-code and low-code very quickly and easily ourselves. This allows us to bring new functionality to our internal users in 3-week cycles."

Head of Management Product Development Process, Automotive OEM

"cplace gives us the necessary dynamics to bring high-performance and competitive products to the market at the right time – making cplace a valuable competitive factor. This already got other business units interested, resulting in evaluation of roll outs in other units."

Dr. Steffen Foerster, Head of IT Competence Center R&D Tires, Continental Reifen Deutschland GmbH

Case Study

"Last year, we replaced our existing scheduling software with cplace. Subsequently, we added modules for risk management. A maturity management system based on cplace is to follow soon. I always motivate my team to implement as many requirements as possible in no-code themselves. When more demanding pro-code developments are due, we work closely with collaboration Factory to have them implemented there on the basis of our requirements."
