Turning ideas into innovations
Sometimes good ideas come by chance and sometimes by dint of hard work. However, they rarely come just when you need them. So how do companies manage to find the necessary flash of inspiration to turn a multitude of ideas into new, marketable products and services? Straumann is the first company in the sector to set up a global, web-based innovation platform. Since January 2014, the Straumann Ideas site has been available for clients, researchers, clinicians and employees to pass on their innovative ideas to us.
The dental implant industry is in a state of change. In the future, growth drivers in the premium segment will include sales processes, innovative solution concepts and incremental product improvements at a very high level. We therefore believe that it is essential to recognize and leverage this innovation potential at an early stage. A strategy that seamlessly ties into our core beliefs.
