Our clients in the infrastructure industry range from transportation to construction and utilities. They have in common a strong drive for business development to support the green transition and an ever-increasing need for services that increase mobility in society. Infrastructure is an industry where companies are deeply dependent on both the lowest possible total cost of ownership and on-time delivery.
Digitalisation and robust design principles are driving significant business development opportunities in the infrastructure industry. We advise our clients on how to transform their organisations to fully utilise these opportunities alongside their partners in their end-to-end value chains.
Our experience comes from working with major transportation and large construction companies, utilities and TSOs.
We provide strategic and operational advice and help our clients with execution when it comes to digital transformations, operational excellence and data services. We have particular experience in working with sourcing strategies and value stream leadership to help our clients increase productivity, enable the green transition, develop inventory policies, and implement standard processes.
The energy transition
The energy transition and electrification have a massive impact on utilities and construction companies and require a substantial investment in their electrical infrastructure. Utilities are put under massive pressure to build electrical transmission networks that enable both consumer and industrial use of electricity, which calls for new sourcing strategies, operating models and organisational transformations. At the same time, construction companies are setting up organisational capabilities to meet the increasing demands for more environmentally friendly building methods.
We help our infrastructure clients build their operational strategies, commercial models and operating models to achieve their sustainability goals.
Transportation and logistics
The evolution of global commerce, recent shifts in the geopolitical landscape and the impact of global COVID-19 changes are reshaping the logistics, transportation and shipping sectors. These transformations are prompting many companies to reconsider their supply chains, leading to ripple effects throughout the logistics and transportation networks. These changes necessitate innovative solutions, including alternative fuels and the adoption of new digital technologies, to reduce costs, improve supply chain visibility and meet customer demands.
We work with our transportation and logistics clients to build the best service offerings with the latest technology solutions. We help them adjust business strategies to ensure operational and commercial excellence in an ever-changing world and demand environment. Further, we assist in the development of strategic roadmaps, commercial frameworks and operating structures to achieve efficiency, sustainability and innovation objectives.
Digitalisation of infrastructure
Digital tools such as AI and machine learning enable the capture and manipulation of massive amounts of data, which enable infrastructure companies to deliver higher uptime and lower total costs of ownership.
We combine digital transformation strategies with deep tech, data and AI skills to help our clients in the infrastructure industry make the next step towards digital maturity.
Enabling customer journeys
Infrastructure companies are required to massively improve their customer journeys. We support our clients in connecting the customer journey with their processes, technology and data in hyper-automation loops, which allows them to move forward in fast sprints.
Governmental and public institutions are constantly faced with demands for change initiated by changes in law and regulation, or rising demands from citizens. One of Valcon’s key specialisms is helping to prepare organisations to deliver efficiently and execute new needs and opportunities in difficult circumstances.
Industrial companies compete in running their daily business efficiently. They also invest heavily in supporting sustainability and mobility in society. We help these companies create platforms to work in both these areas through data, digital and people.
