Implementing Innovation Engine for Leading Automobile Manufacturer


A leading automobile manufacturer needed support throughout their entire innovation cycle. Evalueserve implemented our Innovation Engine approach, identifying disruptive, emerging technologies in the automotive industry, investigating new tech impact on the client’s business, creating innovation goals, and providing innovation enablement services. Our engagement helped keep the automobile manufacturer in the top tier with a top-notch, well-informed innovation strategy.

The Challenge

The automobile manufacturer, a top industry player, needed to secure its future. To do so, it needed better insight into the latest technology and market developments. Its internal innovation team did not have the bandwidth for extensive intellectual property (IP) research and was better served focusing on the legal side.

The automobile maker asked Evalueserve to provide holistic support throughout the innovation cycle. The client chose Evalueserve because of its existing team of IP experts who were already experienced in the automotive domain.
